Lyrics

Dragons they are lovely things, lovely things for me
Dragons they are lovely things lovely things for you
I would like a dragon if it danced upon this stool
but it would be so small that it could not gobble up you.
Yes, it could not gobble up you.

Have you thought of a big dragon as big as a car?
You could still climb on top and ride it like at a bar.
It might be only slightly larger than a lovely horse.
It might only be larger than a little horse.
It might only be larger than a little horse.

Have you thought of maybe dragons
as big as giant houses?
Lovely big dragons,
and they would be frightful when they pout.
But those dragons, don’t you see, they would be hard to keep full.
You would need to feed towns to keep their bellies full.
You would need to feed them towns to keep them full.

Have you thought of maybe the whole planet is a dragon?
A giant dragon pooping humans and war and delight.
It’s full of fire, true, just like
the heart of the planet Earth that we’re on, yes, it is just a dragon.
Yes, the whole planet is just a lovely dragon.

Have you thought of maybe the whole universe is one?
The whole entire universe is act’ally a dragon.
A giant dragon, yes, it’s true but it might be one still.
Full of fire and marvelous delights to see but not share.
Full of marvelous delights to drive you scared.
