Once upon a time…
A little prince lived in this castle (Show right thumb, put in fist)
A little princess lived in this castle (Show left thumb, put in fist)
The little prince came out of his castle
He looked up and down the kingdom
He didn’t see anyone, so he went back into his castle
The little princess came out of her castle
She looked up and down the kingdom
She didn’t see anyone, do she went back into her castle
The next day, the little prince came out of his castle
And looked all around
The little princess came out of her castle
And looked all around
They saw each other!
And they played and they played and they played
Until darkness came and
The little prince went back into his castle and
The little princess went back into her castle.
