Originaltext

The Dragon

There once was an old man who loved power and glory
But in his long life he just had never won
So he had a dream, let us call it obsession
To stand in the middle, be admired by everyone

He saw his one chance when rumors were spreading
A dragon arrived in the outskirts of the town
He thought if someone whould challenge the beast
He would live forever even if he died by hunting it down

And drawing his longsword with its edges blazing
He rode to the lair to shed thick dragon blood
He daydreamed that he would return home as a hero
But his horse stumbled and he landed headlong in the mud

As he lay there sobbing the dragon came along
And saw the poor old man, oh, there had something to be done
He invited the man to his cave where they drank tea
And they became the best friends in the world of dragon and man

He wants to fight the dragon, he wants to kill the beast
He wants to fight the dragon, he wants to kill the beast

 

Singing Call sheet

The Dragon

Open
Sides Face, Grand Square
There once was an old man who loved power and glory
But in his long life he just had never won
So he had a dream, let us call it obsession
To stand in the middle, be admired by everyone
All four ladies promenade you go walk inside the ring
Get back home swing your boy around and you all promenade
He wants to fight the dragon, he wants to kill the beast
He wants to fight the dragon, he wants to kill the beast

Figure
Heads you square thru go four hands around
Find the corner lady do a dosado one time around
You touch now split circulate one place
Do a single hinge, girls trade spin the top
All the girls move up and then
Recycle round and the girls fold
Swing your corner there and then you all promenade
He wants to fight the dragon, he wants to kill the beast
He wants to fight the dragon, he wants to kill the beast
