Can you imagine something worse Than being born under a curse? A young girl with a pretty pout That's in the shadow of her snout Until the day one of her own Shall make their true love freely known
Her mother tries to make a match By landing a blue-blooded catch But each man that might break the spell Takes one quick look, then runs like hel! Leaving a disappointed lass And one big pile of shattered glass
But then along comes scruffy Max Who doesn't leave burnt tire tracks But stays instead to have a chat And make some music in B-Flat But when it comes down to the crunch He leaves just like the other bunch
So off she runs, Penelope The whole wide world's for her to see But it's no fun without some cash And so she gets herself a stash And sets about just living life Without the husband-hunting strife
It ends exactly as you'd think Penelope is in the pink But half the fun is getting there And this one's great, I do declare If you like fantasy, and fun I recommend you see this one
