This C->D riff appears throughout the song, marked with *. There was a castle by a CwateDrfall, With a Cpink and purpleD wall, C G
 And a princess living there. 
 C D
 She had no parents and was all alone, 
 C D She got by on her own,
 And she Gliked it Cpretty Gwell. 
 D 
'Cause she never wore her socks, 
 G She had a pet snake, 
 D She bought a red guitar, 
 Em And she ate a whole cake. 
 C D
 And there wasn't anybody there to tell her what to do, D7 C A
 So she did what she wanted to.
 EveryCbody knew the story of the D7princess who sCaved heDrself. 
 C DC D G (Princess who saved herself)
 C D
 There was a dragon with a pointy tail, 
 C D He was bigger than a whale, 
And hisC breath was terribGle.
 *C D
 He scared the princess when he came around, 
 C D Tried to burn the castle down, 
 G C G But she caught him by his tail.
 D
 Then she tied him to a tree, 
 G So the dragon couldn't fly, D
 She told him he was mean, 
 Em And it made the dragon cry. 
 C D
 When he finally apologized she offered him some tea, 
 D7 A He accepted it graciously. 
Now heC visits every weekend with theD7 princess who saved CheDrself. C DC D E
 (Princess who saved herself)

 (Bridge phone conversation...)
 G C D
 There was a witch who was an evil queen, 
 C D She was wrinkled old and green, 
 C G And she hated everyone. 
 C D 
She saw the princess in her silver gown, 
 C D Put the poison apple down, 
 G C D G Asked her where she bought her clothes.
 
So they got the witch aD dress, 
 G Put some make-up on her face, 
 D They started up a band, 
 Em And the dragon played the bass.
 
Every Saturday theyC play until their fingertips areD sore, D7 C A
 Mostly Math Rock and Cuddle Core. C D7 C D
 And they call themselves The Kingdom Of The Princess Who Saved Herself. 
 C D C D
 (Princess who saved herself)
 C D
 The princess who saved herself.
