Lyrics:
Donít tell me that story
Iíve heard it before
Save all of those love songs
For one you adore

Iíve played Cinderella
Lost my slipper at the ball
And when it all was over
It wasnít any ball at all, at all

Donít read me that poetry
Donít quote me that prose
Save all of those stories
About me and the rose

But if you really mean them
Come a little closer then
Start right back from the beginning
I wanna hear them again

Donít tell me that story
Iíve heard it before
Save all of those love songs
For one you adore

Iíve played Cinderella
Lost my slipper at the ball
And when it all was over
It wasnít any ball at all, at all

Donít read me that poetry
Donít quote me that prose
Save all of those stories
About me and the rose

But if you really mean them
Come a little closer then
Start right back from the beginning
I wanna hear them again

I wanna hear them again
And again and again
And again and again
