This song is by Sutton Foster and Brian D'Arcy James and appears on the soundtrack The Musical - Original Broadway Cast Recording (2010).

Original video
(Fiona)

(There are things you don't know, ya know.
About how rough I had it.)

(Shrek)

(What? In that cushy tower of yours?)

(Fiona)

(Cushy? Are you kidding?)

I had nothing in that tower
Fighting boredom by the hour
Princess lonely, walking circles
I had only

Bare essentials, army cot
A hot plate and chamber pot
And every morning I would boil it
No choice, I had no toilet

Just a view of devastation
Out one window, isolation
In my bedroom
And very little headroom

Twenty years I sat and waited
I'm very dedicated
On the walls, the days were added
Luckily those walls were padded

So I think I got you beat, I think I got you beat
Yeah, yeah, yeah
I think I got you beat, I think I got you beat

(Shrek)

Oh, you think so
That was a sad story but

I've heard better, I'm just saying
A for effort, thanks for playing
Sad to see a princess suffer
But I had it rougher

Like that time a mob with torches
Burned my britches, see the scorches
You're just whiney, I had a flaming hiney

As I fled, I had to wonder
If I were torn asunder
Would an ogre go to Heaven?
Did I mention I was seven?

So, I think I got you beat, I think I got you beat
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
I think I got you beat, I think I got you beat

(Fiona)

No warm regards

(Shrek)

No Christmas cards

(Fiona)

And everyday

(Shrek)

Was hell on earth day

(Fiona)

(Okay, top this!)
I missed my prom

(Shrek)

My dad and mom sent me away
It was my birthday

(Fiona)

I was sent away on Christmas Eve, ha, ha

[Fiona] [Shrek] (in unison)

Bare essentials, army cot (No warm regards)
A hot plate and chamber pot
And every morning I would boil it (No Christmas cards)
No choice, I had no toilet

Just a view of devastation (And every day)
Out one window, isolation (Was hell on earth day)
In my bedroom
And very little headroom

Twenty years I sat and waited (mocking "I missed my prom!")
I'm very dedicated (My dad and mom sent me away)
On the walls the days were added
Luckily those walls were padded (It was my birthday)

Twenty years (more mocking "I missed my prom!")

(Fiona and Shrek)

My dad and mom sent me away

(Fiona)

So

(Shrek)

So

(Fiona and Shrek)

I think I got you beat, I think I got you beat

[Shrek and Fiona] (alternating)

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

(Fiona and Shrek)

I think I got you beat, I think I got you beat

[Shrek and Fiona] (alternating)

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

(Fiona and Shrek)

I think I got you beat, I think I got you beat

(Fiona and Shrek)

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

(Shrek)

(Farts Oopsie! Oh well. Better out than in, I always say!)

(Fiona)

(Farts and giggles)

(Shrek)

(Chuckles)
Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm
(Burps)

(Fiona)

Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm
(Burps)

(Shrek)

Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm
(Burps)

(Fiona)

Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm
(Burps three times)

(Shrek)

(Burps rhythmically and farts)

(Fiona)

(Oh! No!)

(Shrek)

(Watch out!)

(Fiona)

(Pull my finger! No no no, no no no!)

(Shrek)

(Whew!)

(Fiona and Shrek)

Yeah, yeah!
Yeah, yeah!
Yeah, yeah!
Yeah, yeah!
