I've told you almost every bedtime story
And you've heard almost every nursery rhyme
So tonight before you'll go to sleep and pray the Lord your soul to keep
Here's mommy's favorite story one more time
Once upon a time there was a castle and in this castle lived a king and queen
And it came to pass they both were blessed by one little blue eyed princess
With the softest golden curls you've ever seen
And then one day he met this pretty lady and she had lots of pretty words to say
And this part makes your mommy sad cause oh what big eyes she had
And she took his hand and led him far away
Still it's just another bedtime story but telling it brings teardrops to my eyes
Just another pretty bedtime story so please forgive mommy if she cries

Then it came to pass the king grew lonely and the pretty lady wasn't all she seemed
He realized that he was wrong and started his long journey home
For he missed his little princess and his queen
Then he was back and safe inside his castle
And tears of joy came falling down like rain
Then the castle rang with laughter they lived happy ever after
Knowing he would never leave again
Still it's just another bedtime story
Won't you please forgive your mommy if she cries
