    Come my love, I’ll tell you a tale
    of a boy and girl and their love story
    and how he loved her oh, so much,
    and all the charms she did possess.

    My love is like a storybook story.
    But it’s as real as the feelings I feel.
    My love is like a storybook story.
    But it’s as real as the feelings I feel;
    it’s as real as the feelings I feel.

    Now this did happen once upon a time
    When things were not so complex.
    And how he worshipped the ground she walked on.
    When he looked in her eyes, he became obsessed.
    (To Chorus:)

    This love was stronger than the powers so dark,
    A prince could have within his keeping;
    His spells to weave and steal a heart
    Within her breast, but only sleeping.
    (To Chorus:)

    He said, “Don’t you know I love you oh, so much,
    And lay my heart at the foot of your dress?”
    She said, “Don’t you know that storybook loves
    Always have a happy ending?”

    Then he swooped her up, just like in the books,
    And on his stallion they rode away.
    (To Chorus:)
