Snow White


Mirror mirror on the wall
Who's the Fairest of them all
Hair black as ebony, skin white as snow
Lips red as blood, and inner beauty shows
Green of jealousy in Queen's heart grows
Queen gives orders, Princess flees
Huntsman hunts, amongst the trees
Huntsman cuts, sow's heart in chest
Organ cooked at Queen's request
Queen feasts upon the bloody meat
Then slowly rises to her feet
Mirror mirror on the wall
Who's the fairest of them all
Mirror shows the girl in woods
Cottage of dwarves with precious goods
Queen's heart now black with rage
Plots to kill and summons her page
Blood red fruit, poison's kiss
Eve's own apple does not miss
Thus beauty sealed in coffin of glass
Awaiting noble Prince to pass
If true love's kiss frees her from sleep
Princess is doomed to slumber deep
For Prince lies dead at Queen's feet
So Prince and Snow may never meet
The dwarves soon leave, the sorrow too much
But maiden remains through time untouched.
