When I am out on the playground
And someone is calling me names
I wish for a dragon beside me
Breathing the smallest of flames
A dragon to be my protector
Whose calm reptilian gaze
Would get all the bullies to thinking
That they should be mending their ways
Oh, I think of a dragon beside me
I think of its claws that flash in the sun
I know itll help me to stay and not run
Cause two heads...are better than one.
Its not only me that needs dragons
To guard us at home or at school
To ripple their scales at the wise guy
Who ducks us too hard at the pool
I wish for a dragon to help me
When someone gives me dirty looks
But what good is wishing for dragons?
Ive only seen dragons in books.
I could be somebodys dragon
It doesnt take magic or might
I could just be there beside them
And calmly say That isnt right.
I might be too frightened to help them
The bully might bully me too
But I could imagine my dragon
And do what a dragon would do.
