Favorite Quote:
Weird is normal, normal is weird.


Once upon a time...

 

I was fairly young,

 

Fairly recognizable

 

When someone took a risk

 

That most would just call sizable

 

I received a letter

 

Supposedly from Jack

 

Telling me to meet

 

Before the bears came back

 

Thinking I was early

 

I took some liberties

 

I ate, I sat, I slept,

 

Choosing as I pleased

 

Jack never came

 

When the bears arrived

 

I was chased right out

 

Forced to survive

 

A cold, hard truth

 

I spent life on the run

 

At my expense

 

Someone had their fun...

 

(Chorus)

 

So now I'm

 

Goldilocks, wanted dead or alive

 

Dodging all authorities

 

Struggling to survive

 

During my spare time

 

To keep from getting bored

 

Got a horse named Porridge

 

And taught myself some sword

 

Goldilocks, wanted dead or alive

 

I will do what it takes to survive

 

(Chorus Done)

 

Life hasn't treated me fair

 

I knew it never would

 

So I tried to make it right

 

Doing all I could

 

The signs say

 

Goldilocks, wanted dead or alive

 

What was meant for guilt

 

Only gave me drive

 

I KNOW I WAS INNOCENT!

 

IT WAS NOT MY BLAME!

 

If only I could find whoever

 

Put me in this frame

 

How could they?

 

They know what they did...

 

And as Goldilocks, wanted dead or alive

 

I never truly was one to kid

 

IT'S ALL THEIR FAULT!

 

THEY'RE TO BLAME!

 

Their own jealousy ruined my good name...

 

I'm no longer the Goldilocks

 

You think you knew

 

I'm different now

 

It's not just because I grew

 

(Chorus x2)

 

Goldilocks

 

Wanted dead or alive...


The author's comments:

In the summer before eighth grade, I was sitting down with some of my sister's church friends, discussing books. One girl piped up when she heard me say that I liked Harry Potter, and The Book of the King, and other books such as those, saying that I'd enjoy the Land of Stories series. I quickly purchased the first at Barnes & Noble, and next thing I knew, I purchased the next two from Amazon. I thought it was cool how people could turn other things into music, so I thought up a cool song, which I'm hoping I can turn into multiple others alongside it. I always knew my favorite character, Goldilocks, was totally innocent for all she'd been accused of, but I thought it was amazing how this just came to me. This is for the moment in the first book where Evly sneaks in on her in the blue dress, and Goldilocks suddenly grows furious.
