This is the first song in our latest project loosely titled "As Grim(m) As It Gets". These set out to be adding some twists to the already twisted tales of the Brothers Grimm.
Rapunzel (Elizabeth Auzan)
Snatched at birth from her parents By a wicked witch with no heir Rapunzel lived in a tower That had neither door nor stairs Rapunzel, Rapunzel Let down your long hair So I may climb your golden stair This is what the witch would say When she came to visit Most every day
Life for Rapunzel was boring She hated her witch given name To escape was her obsession So, she played a waiting game Now in many a fairy story Prince Charming must come along By chance, one rode by the tower Entranced by Rapunzel's song Rapunzel, Rapunzel Let down your long hair So I may climb your golden stair Prince Charming used the witch's words That, most fortunately, He'd overheard
No bird-brained blonde, Rapunzel She knew he wanted just one thing His intention was to woo her Didn't care that she could sing Sweet Prince Charming, you're my saviour Rapunzel blushingly said I'll let down my long blonde tresses Come quick so we may be wed Rapunzel, Rapunzel Let down her long hair The Prince climbed up the golden stair Rapunzel's beauty left him stunned The heart of the fair lady He thought he'd won
The prince dozed after his ardours Rapunzel spotted her chance She'd escape on the prince's stallion With never a backward glance Rapunzel, Rapunzel Cut off her long hair Tied the braid to a heavy chair Through the window quickly climbed Down the long blonde tresses Left her old life behind
