While my little one was sleeping in my arms I wrote a little story about dragons 😀 I can hear a base line, and have an idea for a melody... that needs a lot of tweaking. So just lyrics for now.
Listen to me I’ll tell you a tale
of dragons so fierce I can hardly regale... it
come hither come here 'else you’ll not know
Of the story of dragons from eons ago
Once upon a time, when dragons roamed the earth
All mankind was filled with fear and mirth
Fear that the dragons would eat them alive
And mirth for the treasures that all dragons hide
One day the dragons said enough is enough,
you keep your lives and we’ll keep this stuff.
The stuff they meant was the treasure they hid
in a mountain so tall in a cave in Madrid.
Of all the story said and of all the stories told,
none compares to that amount of dragon’s gold.
The more that fought the more gold would appear...
also grew the level of dragon fear.
Oh, greedy knights fought and greedy knights died.
Peasants dreamt of it and kings nearly tried.
But no one was the match for the dragons who lived
in that tall, tall mountain in the cave in Madrid.
A Young lad thought hey I am the guy
that will throw those dragons from their place in the sky.
He packed his bag and climbed with care
that mountain ‘neath the dragons lair.
No words can convey the scene that unfolded,
Writers tried to write and tellers tried to told it
The young lad somehow managed to survive
and Not a single dragon was left alive.
It is indeed the most noble pursuit,
to steel a bunch of gold from a reptilian group
But the mystery remains, and has never been told
What was the source of the dragon’s gold?
