River Song: The Fresh Princess Of Taunton

Now, this is a story all about how
My life got flipped-turned upside down
And I’d like to take a minute
Just sit right down
I’ll tell you how I became the princess of a town called Taunton

In Southern United States born and bred
On the back deck was where I spent of of my days sunnin’
Chllin’ out maxin’ relaxin’ all cool
Thinking living up North must be for a fool
When another Griff came up sporting wood
Snuck up behind me, lifted up the trunk and got under the hood
I had one little pregnancy and my Mom was done
She said “You’re movin’ with a brand new family in a town called Taunton”

I begged and pleaded with her day after day
But she packed up my harnesses and sent me on my way
She gave me a kiss and then she gave me a ticket
Luckily she sent me with a friend, so in storage I didn’t have to kick it.

Coach class, yo not for me,
Drinking water from a sippy cup not being able to pee pee
Is this what the people in the North be living like?
Gonna have to head down south even if I need to sit in a basket on a bike

I hear they’re hard edged, bitter and mean
It’s gonna be like trying to find a clean lap at Charlie Sheen’s
I don’t think it’’s happening
I’m not good with the unknown
Don’t think I am prepared for a towncity called Taunton

Well the plane landed and I came out
I was given to a woman I didn’t know who started calling my wrong name out
I wasn’t trying to get adopted
I just got here
But she sprang with quickness like lightening and me disappeared

She brought me in a car and she held me near
There was a dog decal on the car and a Yorkie sticker on the mirror
I could tell by the way she held me this was my new Mom
So I forgot all the bad thoughts and said “Yo, Mom homes to Taunton”

We got to our house about 7 or 8
A little Yorkie ran up and I said “Yo homes smell you later”
I looked at my kingdom
I was finally home
To sit on my throne as the Princess of Taunton


  1. You may have been confused, but you landed on your feet! You have your own Kingdom...even if you do have to co-share.

  2. Is ya talkin bout Taunton, Mass? I lived in Cambridge for three years.

  3. Home sweet home. Have a serene and easy Sunday.
    Best wishes Molly
