PUFF,THE MAGIC DRAGON
Puff,the magic dragon lived by the sea And frolicked in the autumn mist In a land called Honahlee-----
Little Jackie Paper Loved that rascal Puff, And other fancy stuff.*
On a boat with billowed sail, Jackie's kept a look-out
Pirate ships would lower their flags When Puff roared out his name. A dragon lives forever But not so little boys.
Painted wings and giant rings Make way for other toys.
One grey night it happened Jackie Paper came no more And Pull that mighty dragon He ceased his fearless roar. His head was bent in sorrow Green seales fell like rains, Puff no longer went to play Along the cherry lane. Without his lifelong friend Puff could not be brave. So Puff that mighty dragon Sadly slipped into his cave.
