Music is a Princess
(Compiled by John Green)

A
  Music is a princess
B7                     A
  I'm just a boy, in rags
I would gladly spend my life
B
  carrying her flags

         A    
From the first time I heard her
   E
the sound of her voice
       F#m11               C#m7
and her beauty completely bewitched me,
      A
I was lost then and there
      E
I was given no choice
    F#m11                            Abm7
ever since, there's been no peace for me.

(Chords repeat for other verses)

You see, music is a princess
I'm just a nobody
who'd gladly give his life
for her majesty.

If in dying I'd move her or make her heart stir
if I thought for one moment I'd be missed...
but extravagant gestures are wasted on her
she's a princess, I'm Oliver Twist.

Music is a princess
I'm just a boy, in rags
I'd gladly spend my life
carrying her bags

If their weight is much greater than I first supposed
I'd remember my oath of allegiance
true love is a monarch who won't be deposed,
treason hasn't a chance.

A
  Music is a princess
B7                   A     B7
  I'm just a boy, in rags

Music is a princess
I will remain unknown,
falling asleep at night
dreaming of her throne

But her jewels are brighter than my eyes can bear
and although she is something to die for,
I do not have the slipper she's waiting to wear
so my dreams remain dreams nothing more.

Her jewels are brighter than my eyes can bear
yes, she is something to die for,
but I don't have the slipper she's waiting to wear
I'm a boy dressed in rags at her door.

A
  Music is a princess
B7                   A
I'm just a boy, in rags
In rags
       C#m7
In rags
