Lyrics

GRIMSBY:
Welcome, dear friends, to our contest
The first that this kingdom has ever seen!
We gather today for a vocal display
So our prince may at last choose a queen!

(Spoken)
These six princesses possess the most accomplished voices in all the land! Tonight, one of you will go home with the crown!
May the best woman win!

PRINCESS 1:
Listen to me
Don't I sound rich?
Loud, am I not?
Plus, I've got perfect pitch
Wouldn't you think I'm the girl
The girl who has everything?

PRINCE ERIC (Spoken):
That's not her voice. I'll know it the moment I hear it--

PRINCESS 2:
Listen to this
Clear as can be!
You'll know I'm it
When I hit my high C! Ah!

PRINCESS 3:
Wouldn't you think I'm the girl
The girl who has everything?
Everything! Everything...

PRINCESS 4:
I'm a world-famous coloratura!

PRINCESS 5:
My vibrato is second to none!

PRINCESS 6:
I'm a walking display of bravura!

PRINCESSES:
It's so clear...
Can't you hear?

PRINCESS 5:
I'm the one!

PRINCESS 1:
I'm the one!

PRINCESS 4:
I'm the one!

PRINCESSES 3 & 6:
I'm the one!

PRINCESSES:
I'm the one!
