Die Prinzessin und der Frosch

[Y]ou never have seen such a glorious sight
As these beautiful women arrayed for the night
Just like countesses, empresses, movie stars and queens
And they'd come there with men much like me
Froggish men, unpleasant to see
Were you to kiss one,
Nary a prince would there be

Randy Newman: The World Isn't Fair (1999)
