The Green-Eyed Dragon
by
Greatrex Newman
Once upon a time lived a Fair Princess 
Most beautiful and charming; 
Her Father, the King, was a wicked old thing, 
With manners most alarming. 
And always on the front door mat, 
A most ferocious Dragon sat, 
It made such an awful shrieking noise 
So all you little girls and boys... 
Beware, take care, 
Of the Green-eyed dragon with the 13 tails, 
He'll feed,
With greed 
On little boys, puppy dogs and big fat snails.
Then off to his lair each child he'll drag, 
And each of his 13 tails he'll wag 
Beware, 
Take care 
And creep off on tip toes. 
And hurry up the stairs, 
And say your prayers, 
And duck your heads, your pretty curly heads, 
Beneath the clothes, the clothes, the clothes. 

That Dragon he lived for years and years,
But he never grew much thinner. 
For lunch, he'd try a Policeman pie, 
Or a roast M.P. for dinner; 
One brave man went 'round with an axe 
And tried to collect his income tax 
The Dragon he smiled with fiendish glee, 
And sadly murmured "R.I.P."
Beware, take care, 
Of the Green-eyed dragon with the 13 tails, 
He'll feed,
With greed 
On little boys, puppy dogs and big fat snails. 
Then off to his lair each child he'll drag,
And each of his 13 tails he'll wag 
Beware, 
Take care 
And creep off on tip toes. 
And hurry up the stairs, 
And say your prayers, 
And duck your heads, your pretty curly heads, 
Beneath the clothes, the clothes, the clothes. 

That Dragon went down to the kitchen one day 
Where the Fair Princess was baking; 
He ate, by mistake, some rich plum cake 
Which the Fair Princess was making,
That homemade cake, he could not digest,
He moaned and he groaned, and at last went west - 
And now his ghost, with bloodshot eyes
At midnight clanks his chains and cries... 
Beware, take care, 
Of the Green-eyed dragon with the 13 tails, 
He'll feed,
With greed 
On little boys, puppy dogs and big fat snails. 
Then off to his lair each child he'll drag,
And each of his 13 tails he'll wag 
Beware, 
Take care 
And creep off on tip toes. 
And hurry up the stairs, 
And say your prayers, 
And duck your heads, your pretty curly heads, 
Beneath the clothes, the clothes, the clothes. 
AAAAGH!
