Cinderella the Musical - In My Own Little Corner (Reprise) Lyrics

ELLA
I am in the Royal Palace of all places,
When I meet the finest prince
You’ve ever seen
And the color on my two stepsister’s faces
Is a queer sort of sour apple green.

I am coy and flirtatious
When alone with the Prince

I’m the belle of the ball
In my own little corner
All alone
In my own
Little (chair)

MARIE
Fol-de-rol and fiddledy-dee
Fiddledy faddledy foddle
All the wishes in the world
Are poppycock and twaddle!

ELLA
Oh Crazy Marie.
Are you mocking me with your gibberish?

MARIE
Fol de rol and fiddledy dee
Fiddledy faddledy foodle
All the dreamers in all the world
Are dizzy in the noodle.

ELLA
So what if I do have a dream to see the Prince again?
And tell him what life in his kingdom is really like?
And what it could be.

MARIE
Exactly. And then to have him fall in love with you.

ELLA
No one will fall in love with me. Why do you come to visit me tonight?

MARIE
I just knew I would find you
In the same little chair
In the pale pink mist of a foolish dream

ELLA
I am being foolish.

MARIE
Then be foolish with me. What would you dream of?

ELLA
An invitation to the ball, I guess.

MARIE
Right here. There’s an invitation.

ELLA
But it’s torn.

MARIE
Don’t wait for everything to be perfect, just go! Now, what else would you dream of?

ELLA
Oh a white gown, I imagine. A beautiful white gown sewn up with pearls.
And jewels. And a tiara of diamonds.

MARIE
And on your feet?

ELLA
The most beautiful grosgrain pumps, I’d imagine.

MARIE
No. Better. The Venetian glass that your stepmother so loves in her trinkets and baubles.
An entire pair of shoes made only of Venetian glass.

ELLA
Oh how silly.  I’d be the envy of all.  But how would I get to the ball?

MARIE
Well this pumpkin over here?

ELLA
Yes?

MARIE
I’ll turn it into a golden carriage.

ELLA
And horses?

MARIE
Those mice. Trapped in this cage.

ELLA
And a fox as a footman and a raccoon as a driver. Oh you are crazy, Marie.
Why, in order to do that, you would have to be a fairy godmother.

ELLA

Marie! Are you really my fairy godmother?

MARIE
But of course, my child.  Actually, I’m everyone’s fairy godmother.
But you’re the only one who’s given me charity. Generosity.
And kindness. And now, I must make all the dreams we joked about come true.

ELLA
But that’s so improbable.  Implausible.
