They say, “Tale as old as time”
Do you believe it? Please, be fair.
Would there be a wedding chime?
She wasn’t a princess. Did he care?

What’s about that prince charming,
Who couldn’t find the girl without a shoe?
Didn’t you think it was odd and alarming?
Was she hard to remember? It’s something new!


Chorus
Every girl wants to be a princess, doesn’t she?
Well, admit, real world gives nothing for free
You don’t like reality? Don’t bother to respond,
Wait for your fairy godmother with a magic wand


And don’t forget about the naïve mermaid
Would you change the ocean life for a guy?
I’d say, “Like your body as it was made,
You are heiress of the ocean, so do not sigh”

Snow White had no courage, it has to be said
The princess didn’t try to get the throne back
She became a maid and didn’t raise her head,
Girl in the glass coffin, just waitin’ for a smack

Chorus
Every girl wants to be a princess, doesn’t she?
Well, admit, real world gives nothing for free
You don’t like reality? Don’t bother to respond,
Wait for your fairy godmother with a magic wand

Girl, do you dream about prince on a white horse?
Not the best husband, I heard from reliable source
I know you want to be a girl worth fighting for
C’mon, it’s harder to love in peace, than in war

Imagine yourself in a fairy tale. What’d you do?
Sure, you’d not wait for a prince with a shoe,
You’d teach Snow White to stand for herself,
You know life’s a challenge, not book on a shelf.

Chorus
Every girl wants to be a princess, doesn’t she?
Well, admit, real world gives nothing for free
You don’t like reality? Don’t bother to respond,

Fairytale Review

They tell me it’s the new gold
I read what’d be bought and sold
If only I had a chance to join
Those who have at least one bitcoin

Bitcoin’ll cost a million; isn’t it odd?
Your big fish is near; prepare your rod.
Is cryptomania boon or curse?
Will it make us better or worse?


Chorus
Imagine all electricity’s gone
What will you do, cryptofan?
Do you have any secret plan?
And I like the sound of money
Full wallet makes my day sunny
New notes’ crisp is really funny.

Bitcoin price is a roller coaster
So, investor, don’t be a boaster
If your bitter coin’s gonna to crash
Will your hopes turn into ash?

What was the plan, secret Nakamoto?
“Money’s illusory”; was it your motto?
Did people get a bubble or Klondike?
Well, my cryptosong’s over. I hope you like.

Chorus

CryptoKlondike

His words were moon dust
He broke my heart and didn’t care
He said it wasn’t love but lust
I left and wind played with my hair

Leave me, wind, and catch him up
Ask him where he forgot his heart
And why he needed that breakup
Did we really need to be apart?

Chorus
It’s good for me, it’s good for me
He said he was unable to love
And it was time to be free, to be free
Be bold, girl, and keep your head above
Water, water.

Nothing but wish to be like him
If so, would my life be real?
Yes, sure, it would be grim
But I wish I was unable to feel

Loving man is not cold-hearted
He doesn’t want you to feel pain
I wish my feelings were departed
To make me believe in love again

Chorus
It’s good for me, it’s good for me
He said he was unable to love
And it was time to be free, to be free
Be bold, girl, and keep your head above
Water, water.

Unable To Love

Snow Queen is dancing outside
White-eyed stranger, as lonely as me
Tender and harsh, like a woman can be.

She draws frost patterns on my window
Cold-hearted fairy, she gives me a chance
To forget my pain and to join her dance

Chorus
Snow Queen, Snow Queen,
You know exactly how I feel
I make my way
In silent frozen forest
Of broken love

Tearless beauty, she knows no self-pity
Dare to offend her and feel fever thrill
Laughing like ice chime, she’ll make you chill.

Her eyes were glinting; she told me a story
About man she loved, she met him in June
Dark eyed knight, cold and fickle like moon.

Chorus
Snow Queen, Snow Queen,
You know exactly how I feel
I make my way
In silent frozen forest
Of broken love

She got an ice magic from a wizard
She charmed her lover; he was callous.
She turned him into ice statue in her palace.

Summer doesn’t come to her land
Her dress is snow, her music is storm
And nobody can make her heart warm.

Chorus
Snow Queen, Snow Queen,
You know exactly how I feel
I make my way
In silent frozen forest
Of broken love

How She Became The Snow Queen

Lottery is fun for the poor
What’d you do if you won?
Sure, you dream to be the one.

Yes, everyone’d envy you
But hey, would you care?
You’d think “Life is finally fair”.

People like to live in hope
Billions of tickets are sold
Money fever is old in the world

It is so sad to be poor
You can’t afford a lot, you know
And your most-used word is “no”

So you buy and buy tickets,
Waiting for your luck to come
And dreaming of that enormous sum.

A beggar asks you for money,
But you say “Start to work”
You’re just a bit luckier, don’t be a jerk!

House’s full of tickets; it’s where
You hide you secret lottery plan,
The list of all you’d buy if you won

Save the money you earn,
My friend, and accept the truth,
It is not as easy to win as to loose.

The Lottery Obsession

He was a young man
And his smile was wide.
People said he never lied.

He worked on a farm,
Raised kids with his wife.
Usual peaceful and simple life.

But peace was destroyed,
He left home with a gun.
It happened in June, 1941.

He was under fire,
He saw his friends died.
Power was on the enemy’s side

Bombs fell every day.
Just few soldiers survived.
And there was he, who never lied.

Four years, no rest.
He had reached Berlin –
The only abroad he’d ever seen.

What miracle saved him?
We’ll never know.
He wanted to see his kids to grow

He didn’t tell much
He just sadly sighed.
War stories were his only lie.

He passed away,
He lived a long life,
Last time I saw him he was 95.

Now peace is so frail
We do nothing to save it
I’m sorry, grandfather. You were braver.

My Grandfather

She’s so young, but she has everything
Is there something that money can’t bring?
Who is her dad? World famous tycoon!
And if she wants he’ll buy her the Moon

Slaphappy life! She has nothing to gain
Money will save the poor girl from pain
It’s easy to be the one of those snobs
When your daddy’s face smiles in Forbes

Just buy it all! It’s no reason to choose
She needs a boat to carry her shoes
Well, if it sinks she’ll buy the new one
And you use the subway. Isn’t it fun?

One of her bags costs like your mortgage
What does she do? She just goes to college
But it’s not as important as her Instagram
You don’t think I’m serious? But I am!

Her Instagram is huge vanity fair
Money is flying like birds in the air
Parties, white boat and big diamond ring
Is there something that money can’t bring?

Instagram Princess

No money, no job, my little disaster
I wish this year moved much faster.
Everyone buys presents but me
I don’t even have a Christmas tree.

This year I was both naughty and nice
So I probably should celebrate twice.
But I have nothing, ‘cause I’m fooled bunny!
Well, vulture company, where is my money?

Chorus
Hey, Santa Claus, don’t you need money?
Tell me your secret; it must be so funny,
This Christmas I need your magic skills,
I’d not have to pay my credit card bills.

My friends on Facebook, what have they penned?
They look so happy with their money to spend
They went to vacation, bought junk in the stores
And my cat and I were watching Star Wars.

My former boss’ page is shiny and bright
He is laying on the beach and enjoying sunlight
I bet his vacation costs like a rocket
And it is his fault there’s a wind in my pocket

Chorus
Hey, Santa Claus, don’t you need money?
Tell me your secret; it must be so funny,
This Christmas I need your magic skills,
I’d not have to pay my credit card bills.

My Christmas disaster is a Dickens’ story
And no Scrooge to save me; nobody will worry
I spent my last money to buy food for the cat
And what’s about me? Well, my stomach is sad.

I’ve never been rich, but my life was ideal
C’mon, Santa Claus, let’s make a deal
I didn’t get paid; I’ll not win this rat race
So please put my ex-boss in my poor place.

Chorus
Hey, Santa Claus, don’t you need money?
Tell me your secret; it must be so funny,
This Christmas I need your magic skills,
I’d not have to pay my credit card bills.
