I was a princess crying in a dungeon
Shackles tied to my feet
I feared the dragon and all his allies
He had sent to capture me
I hung my head
Ooh who would rescue me?
Ooh a man riding a donkey
Every night was cold and dark
I couldn’t see a thing at all
Except for a sliver of the crescent moon
That shone through a crack in the wall
And I laid my head there
Ooh who would love me?
Ooh a man riding a donkey
Then one morning I awoke
To the sound of a breaking chain
I peeked through the crack in the wall
At the forest with the narrow lane
And I raised my head
Ooh he came to rescue me
Ooh a man riding a donkey
Ooh he came to love me
Ooh a man riding a donkey.
