LyricsEdit

Pointed toes and lacy slippers
Tucked away in my third drawer
Leotard and matching ribbon
Can not use them, must stay hidden

You don't have a dancer's body, she says
You have to try something different instead
Mother forbids me from doing ballet
Wish I could try but I must stay away

It's been years and
she still says no
Secret practice
Long way to go

Something else is waiting for you she said
But in my opinion she wants me dead
She still forbids me from doing ballet
Perhaps I should try it anyway

I know one day, I'll accomplish this feat
'Cause dancing is the thing that I need
I fill not fall for all you hurtful words
And may they get you cursed

Everyday
I trained harder
I was still
Beneath her radar

Maybe a teacher could show me the way
Mother won't allow it, try as I may

I know one day, I'll accomplish this feat
'Cause dancing is the thing that I need
I fill not fall for all you hurtful words
And may they get you cursed

Found an ad for a ballet class down the street
Said they'd take me in for free
I got quite elated and started to cry
At the sweet opportunity
Next day a new music box dancer appeared
In the window of a nearby store

It was the passion I tried to fulfill
Now it's the only thing I can do
Spinning nonstop stuck on my pedestal
If only I had known.
