Queen of Hearts, don't dally
To scream out your commands
Even with my schemes
You'll still have the upperhand

Prince of Hearts, don't worry
Your words are for naught
Even if her rules are twisted
You follow what you've been taught

Princess of Hearts, don't smile
I see the scorn in your eyes
If you were to curse me to no end
I would not show surprise

King of Hearts, don't disobey
Even if you're heart is warm
For if you try to utter a word
The Queen will utter a storm

Joker, Joker, don't fret
While you wait in the royal garden
Even if your prince hasn't come yet
You may assume that his heart has hardened

Your hat must not be removed
To show your long, brown curls
You're only to be laughed at
Why show them you're a girl?

Your eyes must not let tears
Cascade down your pale cheeks
You mustn't look to noble
But you mustn't look too meek

Joker you shan't look at me
Because we are the same
In the mirror, what do you see?
A girl with just one name
