Ohhhhh? I liked her!

LARKEN:
So did I.

DAUNTLESS:
Why?

KNIGHTS:
Why?

All:
Why?

DAUNTLESS:
Must every princess get the bird?

LADY ROWENA:
It's just absurd!

LADY AGATHA:
I never heard a test so difficult to pass!

DAUNTLESS:
Alas, a lass is what I lack,
I lack a lass, alas alack.

KNIGHTS:
Throughout the land no one may wed Ladies:
'Til Dauntless shares his marriage bed Ohhh?

LADIES:
The lonely spinster's life! Go?
And get the prince a royal wife

ALL:
We have an opening for a princess,
For a genuine, certified princess.

LADIES:
Tell us when you intend
To end this dilemma we're in!

KNIGHTS:
None of the ladies give a fig for livin' in sin!

ALL:
We have an opening for a princess,
For a beautiful, bona-fide princess.

LADIES:
Where's the dutiful knight
Who'll right all the wrong
We've been done?

KNIGHTS:
None of the ladies are having any fun.

LADIES:
What to do?

KNIGHTS:
What to do?

LADIES:

Pity the ladies-in-waiting.

KNIGHTS:
Pity the gentleman too.

LADIES:
Four,

KNIGHTS:
Six,

ALL:
Eight, ten, eleven,
Twelve contenders in a row...

KNIGHTS:
They came, they were tested

LADIES:
Then swiftly requested to go?

LADIES & KNIGHTS:
Oh? Blow

For a princess the trumpet,
Sound the fife!
For a genuine,
Certified princess.

KNIGHTS:
Go and get the prince a royal wife!

LADIES:
Tell us when you intend
To send a girl who can pass

KNIGHTS:
None of the ladies are havin' any?

ALL:
No one is havin' any,
No one is getting any younger,
And it's been God knows how long since

KNIGHTS:

Certified princessWe have an
Opening for a princess

ALL:

Who's good enough,
Nice enough, sweet enough, smart enough,
Rich enough for our poor prince!
