Five Knights In Shining Armor
There's A Castle In the Middle of the Moat

All Around the Castle Walls
(Tune: Pop Goes the Weasel)
All around the castle walls,
The knight chased the dragon.
The knight thought it was all in fun.
"Roar!" went the dragon.

Baby Dragon
(Act out with puppet)
Baby Dragon counts to three
Baby Dragon bends one knee
Baby Dragon touches his toes
Baby Dragon breathes through his nose (flame)
Baby Dragon runs in place
Baby Dragon makes a funny face
Baby Dragon lies on the floor
Baby Dragon starts to snore.

Dragon Dance
If you want to be a dragon, here's your chance
'Cause now you're doing the Dragon Dance!
Stamp your feet, and give a great big ROAR
Put your hands in the air – now put them on the floor
"Princess better run, while you have the chance,
Because we're all doing the dragon dance!"

Dragon, Dragon

(Castle version of "Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear")
Dragon, dragon, turn around
Dragon, dragon, touch the ground
Dragon, dragon, fly up high
Dragon, dragon, touch the sky

Dragon, dragon, swing your tail,
Dragon, dragon, shake your scales
Dragon, dragon, give a ROAR
Dragon, dragon, sit on the floor.

The King's in the Castle
(Tune: "Farmer in the Dell")
The king's in the castle, the king's in the castle
Hi- ho, the dairy-o, the king's in the castle.
The king picks a queen, the king picks a queen
Hi-ho, the dairy-o, the king picks a queen.
The queen picks a knight, the queen picks a knight
Hi-ho, the dairy-o, the queen picks a knight.
The knight picks the dragon, the knight picks a dragon,
Hi-ho, the dairy-o, the knight picks a dragon.
The dragon chases everyone, the dragon chases everyone.
Hi-ho, the dairy-o, the dragon chases everyone

I'm A Knight In Armor
(Sung to: "I'm a Little Teapot")
I'm a knight in armor, look at me.
See how shiny I can be.
With my visor up my eyes you'll see.
But with it down it protects me.

I'm A Little Dragon

(Sung to: "I'm a Little Teapot")
I'm a little dragon, strong and stout.
Here is my tail and here is my snout.
If you get me upset, you better watch out!
I'll give you something to shout about!
