Music Monday: Stealing Cinderella by Chuck Wicks

It's been a while since Roxy posted a (sappy) country song for Music Monday, but having spent the weekend watching my little girls at the beach, "Stealing Cinderella" by Chuck Wicks was just tugging at my heart strings. As I tweeted from the beach in Bay Head, NJ, on Sunday, London was playing in the waves and got caught in a riptide. If it weren't for the Bay Head lifeguard who swam out to rescue her, the ocean would have stolen my Cinderella.



I came to see her daddy
For a sit down man to man
It wasn't any secret
I'd be asking for her hand

I guess that's why he left me waiting
In the living room by myself
With at least a dozen pictures of her
Sitting on a shelf

Playing cinderella
She was riding her first bike
Bouncing on the bed
And looking for a pillow fight

Running through the sprinkler
With a big popsicle grin
Dancing with her dad
Looking up at him

In her eyes i'm prince charming
But to him i'm just some fella
Riding in and stealing cinderella

I leaned in towards those pictures
To get a better look at one
When i heard a voice behind me say
"now ain't she something son?"

I said "yes she quite a woman"
And he just stared at me
Then i realized that in his eyes
She would always be

Playing cinderella
Riding her first bike
Bouncing on the bed
And looking for a pillow fight

Running through the sprinkler
With a big popsicle grin
Dancing with her dad
Looking up at him

In her eyes i'm prince charming
But to him i'm just some fella
Riding in and stealing cinderella

Oh he slapped me on the shoulder
Then he called her in the room
When she threw her arms around him
That's when i could see it too

She was playing cinderella
Riding her first bike
Bouncing on the bed
And looking for a pillow fight

Running through the sprinklers
With a big popsicle grin
Dancing with her dad
Looking up at him

If he gives me a hard time
I can't blame the fella
I'm the one who's stealing cinderella
