Puff The Magic Dragon

Written by Peter Yarrow & Leonard Lipton

Puff the magic dragon
Lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist
In a land called Honalee

Little Jackie Paper
Loved that rascal Puff
And brought him strings and sealing wax
And other fancy stuff

[chorus x2]

Together they would travel
On a boat with billowed sail
And Jackie kept a lookout perched
On Puff's gigantic tail

Noble kings and princes
Would bow whene'er they came
Pirate ships would lower their flags
When Puff roared out his name

[chorus x2]

A dragon lives forever
but not so little boys
Painted wings and giants' rings
Make way for other toys

One grey night it happened:
Jackie Paper came no more
And Puff that mighty dragon
He ceased his fearless roar

His head was bent in sorrow
Green scales fell like rain
Puff no longer went to play
Along the cherry lane

Without his life-long friend
Puff could not be brave
So Puff that mighty dragon
Sadly slipped into his cave

[chorus x2]
