Royal Scheduler
Oh, we're late late late!
We have twenty, maximum twenty-two minutes for your royal fitting!
And then it's move move move, to your speech at the historical society!


After that, we have to rush and I mean rush, to the Horticultural Society Tea
And then there's your math lessons, your geography lessons, your science lessons...


Anneliese
All my life I've always wanted
To have one day just for me
Nothing to do and for once nowhere and need to be

With no lessons, lords, or lunches
Or to-do list in the way
No one to say when to eat or read or leave or stay...
That would be the day!

Erika
All my life I've always wanted
To have one day for myself
Not waking up with a pile of work on every shelf

With no hems in need of pressing
And no sleeves in disarray
No wedding gown with a thousand stitches to crochet!
And no debt to pay...

Bertie
Madame Carp!

Madame Carp
What do you think I'm running here? A cabaret?

Erika
I would've said "a debtor's prison".

Madame Carp
Keep laughing! You'll be working for me for another thirty-seven years...
Erika
But I've already paid off more than half!

Madame Carp
But there's interest, isn't there? You parents should have thought of that before they borrowed so much...
Erika
They did it to feed me!
Madame Carp
Their mistake!

Erika
What would it be like to be...

Anneliese
What would it be like to be...

Both
Free?

Anneliese
Free to try crazy things...

Erika
Free from endless I.O.U.'s!

Anneliese
Free to fly...

Erika
Free to sing

Anneliese
And marry whom I choose!

Queen Genevieve
I'm so sorry my darling, but as you know it is vital that you marry King Dominick, it is the only way to take care of our people.

Anneliese
I know. It's my duty...

Queen Genevieve
Oh, and look! Another engagement gift!

Anneliese
You would think that I'm so lucky
That I have so many things
I'm realizing that every present comes with strings

Erika
Though I know I have so little
My determination's strong!
People will gather around the world to hear my song!

Bertie
Can I come along?

Anneliese
Now I fear I'll never be...

Erika
Soon I will forever be...

Both
Free!

I close my eyes
And feel myself fly
A thousand miles away...
I could take flight
But would it be right?
My conscience tells me, "Stay"!

Anneliese
I'll remain forever royal!

Erika
I'll repay my parent's debt!

Both
Duty means doing the things your heart may well regret

Anneliese
But I'll never stop believing!

Erika
She can never stop my schemes!

Both
There's more to living
Than gloves and gowns
And threads and seams

In my dreams...
I'll be free!
