Rodgers And Hammerstein – Stepsisters’ Lament Lyrics

Artist: Rodgers And Hammerstein
Album: Cinderella
Genre: Musical

[Charlotte]
Why would a fellow want a girl like her?
A frail and fluffy beauty.
Why can’t a fellow ever once prefer
A solid girl like me?

[Gabrielle]
She’s a frothy little bubble,
with a flimsy kind of charm.
And with very little trouble,
I could break her little arm!
Oh

[Charlottle]
Oh,

[Both]

Why would a fellow want a girl like her?
So obviously unusual.
Why can’t a fellow ever once prefer, a usual girl like me?

[Charlotte]
Her cheeks are a pretty shade of pink.

[Gabrielle]
But no more pinker than a rose’s.

[Charlotte]
Her skin may be delicate and soft.

[Gabrielle]
But not any softer than a doe’s is!

[Charlotte]
Her neck is no whiter than a swan.

[Gabrielle]
She’s only a dainty as a daisy.

[Charlotte]
She’s only as graceful as a bird.

[Both]
So why is a feller’ going crazy?
Oh, why would a fellow want a girl like her?
A girl whose merely lovely.
Why can’t a fellow ever once prefer, a girl whose merely me?

[Gabrielle]
She’s a frothy little bubble,
with a frilly sort of air!

[Charlotte]
And with very little trouble,
I could pull out all her hair!

[Both]
Oh, oh!
Why would a fellow want a girl like her?
A girl whose merely lovely.
Why can’t a fellow ever once prefer, a girl whose merely me

What’s a matter with a man?
What’s a matter witch a man?
What’s a matter with a man?!
