Puff, the Magic Dragon
(Altered Text in the series "Songs with positive texts")
~ Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea (Chorus)
and frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee (*).
~ Little Jacky Paper loved that rascal Puff
and brought him strings and sealing wax and other fancy stuff.
~ Together they would travel on a boat with billowed sail,
Jacky kept a lockout perched on Puff's gigantic tail.
~ Noble kings and princes would bow whene'er they came,
pirate ships would low'r their flags when Puff roared out his name.
~ A dragon lives forever, but men grow out of boys.
Painted wings and giant rings make way for other toys.
~ One night in may it happened: a maiden he did find.
To Puff he introduced his wife, and Puff was very kind.
~ Their love grew strong for ever, they had a little boy.
And proudly father showed his sun his most beloved toy.
~ Puff spent manly power, the little prince grew strong.
Thus for ever we may sing this lovely dragon song.
~ Puff the magic dragon lived by the sea (Chorus)
and frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee.
(*) Honah Lee = "Hanalei" (Town on the Hawaiian island of Kauaii).
