Cinderella Story

The music tonight
Is a different tune.
No more mournful dirges,
Only happy tinkly sounds.

Cinderella, you've always
Danced at these balls
With an eye on the clock-
Run when midnight falls!

Pumpkin carriage and mouse-horses
Don't make for fast getaways-
Running too hard won't work
Cut glass sure impedes pace.

Tonight, Cinderella, let go a little.
Soak in the music, forget the time.
Dance with Prince Charming,
Laugh, talk, wine, dine.

So stay, Cinderella.
No more need you worry.
The magic won't end anytime soon,
You needn't run home in a hurry.
