Lyrics - I Love Being a Princess

From "The Key to the Nile".

Part I - Tasha, playing by herself in the backyard.

The folks in my kingdom work hard everyday,
Then go home to their dark little huts.
Some say a Princess should live like her people,
But I reply, "What are you, nuts?"

I love being a princess,
I love being a princess.
I love smiling regally
while other people kneel.

I love being a princess,
I love being a princess.
I wouldn't trade with anyone,
I've got a sweet sweet deal.

I wear nice expensive clothes.
I sleep on the softest bed.
I wear fancy jewelry.
There's a crown upon my head.

Everyone in Egypt Land must bow and do my bidding.
If they don't I'll kick them out.
Try it ...
See if I'm kidding!

I love being a princess,
I love being a princess.
The lap of luxury,
That's where I hang out.

I love being a princess,
I love being a princess.
A nice arrangement, folks,
for me at least no doubt.

Part II: Tasha, Austin, Pablo and Tyrone, in Tasha's Egyptian palace.

Tasha: I love being a princess.
Boys: She loves being a princess.
Tasha: I love never bothering to open my own door.

I love being a princess.
Boys: She loves being a princess.
Tasha: And just because I feel like it,
I will tell you more.

When I want a bite to eat,
My servants come and serve it.
Pablo: We only bring the best for her.
Tasha: Why? 'Cause I deserve it!

Tyrone: We even come to fan her when she wants a gentle breeze,
Austin: But she never says thank you and she never ever says please.

Tasha: I ask for snacks,
my servants bring them.
I ask for drinks,
my servants bring them.

Austin: If she wants songs we'll even sing them.
Tasha: I've got the best servants in the kingdom.

If you want to dress like this, and wear a shiny crown,
If you like how people look when they are bowing down,
If princess life is what you want, your choice is crystal clear,
Go find some other country, pal,
'Cause I'm the princess here!

I love being a princess.
Boys: She loves being a princess.
Tasha: I love lounging on my couch
and ruling royally.

I love being a princess,
I love being a princess.
There's just one princess here,
and I love being me!

Tyrone: Great is your fame, o' princess.
Pablo: Long may you reign, o' princess.
Austin: She's such a pain, that princess.
Tasha: I love being me!
