MAN (SPOKEN):
Oh, we're late, late, late
We have twenty, maximum twenty-two minutes for your royal fitting
And then it's move, move, move to your speech at the Historical Society
After that we have to rush, and I mean rush to the Horticultural Society Tea
And then there's your Math lesson, your Geography lessons, your Science lessons
ANNELIESE:
All my life I've always wanted
To have one day just for me
Nothing to do and for once nowhere I need to be
With no lessons, lords, or lunches
Or to-do list in the way
No one to say when to eat or read or leave or stay
That would be the day
ERIKA:
All my life I've always wanted
To have one day for myself
Not waking up with a pile of work on every shelf
With no hems in need of pressing
And no sleeves in disarray
No wedding gown with a thousand stitches to crochet
And no debt to pay
Bertie (SPOKEN):
Madame Carp
MADAME CARP (SPOKEN):
What do you think I'm running here, a cabaret?
ERIKA (SPOKEN):
I would have said a debtor's prison
MADAME CARP (SPOKEN):
Keep laughing, you'll be working for me for another 37 years
ERIKA (SPOKEN):
But I've already paid off more than half
MADAME CARP (SPOKEN):
But there's an interest, isn't there,
Your parents should have thought of that before they borrowed so much
ERIKA (SPOKEN):
They did it to feed me
MADAME CARP (SPOKEN):
Their mistake
ERIKA:
What would it be like to be
PRINCESS ANNELIESE:
What would it be like to be
Free
ERIKA:
Free
PRINCESS ANNELIESE:
Free to try crazy things
ERIKA:
Free from endless IOU's
ANNELIESE:
Free to fly
ERIKA:
Free to sing
ANNELIESE:
And marry whom I choose
QUEEN GENEVIEVE (SPOKEN):
I'm so sorry my darling,
But as you know it is vital you marry King Dominic
It is the only way to take care of our people
ANNELIESE (SPOKEN):
I know, it's my duty
QUEEN GENEVIEVE (SPOKEN):
Aw! And look! Another engagement gift!
ANNELIESE:
You would think that I'm so lucky
That I have so many things
I'm realizing that every present comes with strings
ERIKA:
Though I know I have so little
My determination's strong
People will gather around the world to hear my song
BERTIE:
Can I come along?
ANNELIESE:
Now I fear I'll never be
ERIKA:
Soon I will forever be
BOTH:
Free
I close my eyes and feel myself fly a thousand miles away
I could take flight but would it be right
My conscience tells me stay
ANNELIESE:
I'll remain forever royal
ERIKA:
I'll repay my parent's debt
BOTH:
Duty means doing the things your heart may well regret
ANNELIESE:
But I'll never stop believing
ERIKA:
She can never stop my schemes
BOTH:
There's more to living than gloves and gowns and threads and seams
In my dreams
I'll be free
