Cinderella
He's a very nice Prince.

Baker's wife
And-?

Cinderella
And-
It's a very nice ball.

Baker's wife
And-?

Cinderella
And-
When I entered they trumpeted.

Baker's wife
And-?
The Prince-?

Cinderella
Oh, the Prince...

Baker's wife
Yes, the Prince!

Cinderella
Well, he's tall.

Baker's wife
Is that all?
Did you dance?
Is he charming? They say that he's charming.

Cinderella
We did nothing but dance.

Baker's wife
Yes-? And-?

Cinderella
And it made a nice change.

Baker's wife
No, the Prince!

Cinderella
Oh, the Prince...

Baker's wife
Yes, the Prince.

Cinderella
He has charm for a Prince, I guess...

Baker's wife
Guess?

Cinderella
I don't meet a wide range.

Baker's wife
Did he bow?
Was he cold and polite?

Cinderella
And it's all very strange.

Baker's wife
Did he speak? Did he flirt?
Could you tell right away he was royalty?
Is he sensitive,
Clever,
Well-mannered,
Considerate,
Passionate,
Charming,
As kind as he's handsome,
As wise as he's rich,
Is he everything you've ever wanted?

Cinderella
Would I know?

Baker's wife
Well, I know.

Cinderella
But how can you know what you want
Till you get what you want
And you see if you like it?

Baker's wife
Would I know?

Cinderella
All I know is-

Baker's wife
I never wish-

Cinderella
What I want most of all-

Baker's wife
Just within reason.

Cinderella
Is to know what I want.

Baker's wife
When you know you can't have what you want,
Where's the profit in wishing?

Both
He's a very nice Prince...

Baker's wife
What I wouldn't give to be in your shoes.

Cinderella
Will you look over there, an enormous beanstalk
Growing next to that little cottage.

Baker's wife
I mean slippers as pure as gold.

Cinderella
I must get home.

Baker's wife
I need you shoes.

Wait!
