In My Own Little Corner

“a woman may go to her father’s house to visit him, and to the house of mourning, and to the house of feasting, to return a kindness to her friends, or to her near relations–but it is a reproach to a woman to go out daily; now she is without, now she is in the streets; and a husband ought to restrain his wife from it, and not suffer her to go abroad but about once a month, or twice a month, upon necessity; for there is nothing more beautiful for a woman, than to abide in the corner of her house; for so it is written, Psalm 45:13 ‘the king’s daughter is all glorious within’.”

Reminds me of this song from Cinderella. Apparently this his how Chrisitian women should live–in a corner with only their day dreams and imagination. Suffering in silence isn’t so bad when you have a corner to escape to or in some cases a blog where you can be whatever you want to be.

[Verse 1]
I’m as mild and as meek as a mouse
When I hear a command I obey.
But I know of a spot in my house
Where no one can stand in my way.

[Verse 2]
In my own little corner in my own little chair
I can be whatever I want to be.
On the wings of my fancy I can fly anywhere
And the world will open it’s arms to me.

[Verse 3]
I’m a young Norwegian princess or a milkmaid
I’m the greatest prima donna in Milan
I’m an heiress who has always had her silk made
By her own flock of silkworms in Japan
I’m a girl men go mad for
Love’s a game I can play with a cool and confident kind of air.

[Bridge]
Just as long as I stay in my own little corner
All alone in my own little chair.
I can be whatever I want to be.

[Verse 4]
I’m a thief from Calcutta I’m a queen in Peru.
I’m a mermaid dancing upon the sea
I’m a huntress on an African safari…
It’s a dangerous type of sport and yet it’s fun
In the night I sally forth to seek my quarry
And I find I forgot to bring my gun.

[Outro]
I am lost in the jungle all alone and unarmed
When I meet a lioness in her lair
Then I’m glad to be back in my own little corner,
All alone in my own little chair.
