Rubbish Fairy Tale

lyrics

I was looking for a pot of gold
Had to settle for a pin
I dreamt of a knight in armour bold
Got a boy made out of tin

Ooh what a rubbish fairy tale
What a rubbish fairy tale

This happy-ever-after thing
Is so last hundred years
The poisoned-apple book of lies
Makes a mockery of tears

Ooh what a rubbish fairy tale
What a rubbish fairy tale

I won't guess your name and I won't let down my hair
I've kissed a thousand frogs and they're all still there
You can keep your slipper, you can keep your throne
All I want is a good book and a night at home.

Ooh what a rubbish fairy tale
What a rubbish fairy tale
What a rubbish fairy tale
What a rubbish fairy tale
