All text here comes with very little adjustment from the official product descriptions of Mattel’s “She-Ra: Princess of Power” fashion-toy series, from 1984-1987 (cataloged on this excellent website).
Little Does He Know
that my beautiful blue scarf
let the weather do its worst
I don’t care
this soft furry skirt will protect me from the cold
and I can turn it inside out
to protect me
as a suit of armor
I have a secret map, a map
of a world below the sea
that leads to buried treasure.
if you promise not to tell a soul
I’ll show you where the map is hidden.
see? right here
behind the blue fish shield
that matches my beautiful blue gown.
now come with me in search of the secrets of the sea.
don’t you love surprises?
that’s why I love this dress
underneath these layers of veils
underneath the shimmering trim
is a special secret sword.
I love strolling in my garden in this dress
the pretty posies on my shoulder
pull out to push trouble away
Lilac and glitter
Heart gives a signal
My sparkly hat becomes a light-blinding shield.
The pretty parasol is really a cover for my sword.
