I’m free
Way too long in that lamp
Too long in the dark
This feels like it has been one long stretch
Who put me in there from the start?
Hang on it was that wicked witch
Who lives in the tree stump!

Time to stretch
These bent and buckled joints
And muscles
Where are my feet?
Oh heck looks at my dress
My hair is a mess
Now this is causing distress

I can hear you say I’m going
To ask for three wishes
Hang on a minute…
I think I deserve mine first
O what shall I wish for?

Genie, Genie of the lamp
Oh how I wish that you could be here
And grant me just three wishes
O heck I have just used up a wish
O how I wish that you could
Release me from this wood
And the bind to the lamp
O genie of the lamp
Help me get out of this
So that I can feel such bliss
