The Sensible Fairy Considers

After sixteen years of constant lying, the fairies think up a strategy for telling the princess that she's really a princess.

We've got to break it to her gently
We've got to break it to her bit by bit.
This kind of news is unexpected.
We ought to make the princess sit--she'll sit!
And we'll look her in the eye and we'll let her know
That the day after this, girl, you gotta go!
