Verse 1
There was a Dragon
And his heart
Was bigger than all other hearts

This is the story
Of what his life gave
And the love that it contained

Verse 2
There was a princess
Yes, of sorts
Possessed much wealth, but she knew no more

She learned to dress up
Yes, quite well
But never learned what her heart might tell

Chorus 1
He loved her
He loved her
Loved her all with but one request

He said “Be my princess
My princess
What more can I ask of you?”

Verse 3
Unlike most dragons
He wasn’t looking
To devour but instead to free (her heart)

Her heart, but she
This one day
Oh she looked at him in this funny way

Chorus 2
So he ate her
He ate her
Ate her all and without regret

But he still loved her
He loved her
He loved this death

He’s finally found what a dragon’s supposed to be
Devour and to breathe fire oh so shamelessly

He wouldn’t go back for the world, not for anything
What a story to be told about how he got his name
