Lyrics

1. There was a princess long ago, long ago, long ago. One child stands in the middle.
There was a princess long ago, long, long ago.

2. She lived in a big high tower, Two children join raised hands to form a tower.
A big high tower, a big high tower,
She lived in a big high tower, a big high tower.

3. A fairy waved her magic wand, One child pretends to wave a wand.
Her magic wand, her magic wand,
A fairy waved her magic wand, magic wand.

4. The princess slept for a hundred years, Princess lies down and sleeps.
A hundred years, a hundred years,
The princess slept for a hundred years, a hundred years.

5. A big high forest grew all around, Trees spread their arms over their heads.
Grew all around, grew all around,
A big high forest grew all around, grew all around.

6. A handsome prince came galloping by, Prince gallops around outside of circle.
Galloping by, galloping by,
A handsome prince came galloping by, galloping by.

7. He took his axe to chop it down, Prince pretends to cut down trees - they fall down.
Chop it down, chop it down,
He took his axe to Chop them down, chop them down.

8. He took her hand to wake her up, Prince takes princess’s hand and she stands up.
Wake her up, wake her up,
He took her hand to wake her up, wake her up.

9. Now everybody’s happy now, Prince and princess dance and everybody claps or dances.
Happy now, happy now,
Now everybody’s happy now, happy now
