Puff the Magic Dragon

Puff, the magic dragon
Lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist
In a land called Honah Lee
Little Jackie 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
Jackie kept a lookout
Perched on Puff's gigantic tail
Noble kings and princes
Would bow whene'er they came
And pirate ships would low'r their flag
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 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
 
Oh, Puff, the magic dragon
Lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist
In a land called Honah Lee
Puff, the magic dragon
Lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist
In a land called Honah Lee

"The saddest song of all. The dragon only really lives in the child's imagination - when the boy grows up the dragon sadly retires."
