In My Own Little Corner

Woke up this morning and as I was getting ready to seize the day this song popped into my head. Its a song from Rogers and Hammerstein's Cinderella, sung by Brandy who plays the part of Cinderella. My imagination is always running wild as is demonstrated by the song; except I don't go on safaris and battle wild animals, then again I can liken my family to be the same.

In my own little corner
In my own little chair
I can be whatever
I want to be
On the wings of my fancy
I can fly anywhere
And the world will
Open its arms to me
I'm a young Egyptian princess
Or a milkmaid
I'm the greatest premadonna
In the land
I'm a heiress who has always
Had her silk made
By her own flock of silkworms
In Japan

I'm a girl men go mad for
Loves a game I can play
With a cool and confident
Kind of air
Just as long as I stay
In my own little corner
All alone
In my own
Little chair
I can be whatever
I want to be

I'm a thief in Calcutta
I'm a queen in Peru
I'm a mermaid
Dancing upon the sea
I'm a huntress on an
African Safari
It's a dangerous type of sport
And yet it's fun
In the night I sally forth
To seek my quarry
And I find
I forgot to bring my gun
I am lost in the jungle
All alone and unarmed
When I meet a lioness
In her lair
Then I'm glad to be back
In my own little corner
All alone in my own
Little chair
