Cue Sheet

OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee

Allemande and weave
Little Jackie Vaper loved that rascal Puff (Promenade)
And brought him strings and sealing wax and other fancy stuff


FIGURE    Mainstream, unknown progression

Heads (sides) pass the ocean
Extend and a right & left thru
Half sashay and then pass thru, trade by
Swing thru now the girl trade and the girl run
Tag the line all the way, face right, wrong way promenade
*And brought him strings and sealing wax and other fancy stuff


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Pirate ships would lower their flag when Puff roared out his name

*And Puff that mighty dragon, let out his fearless roar

*So Puff that mighty dragon stood proudly in his cave


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Together they would travel on a boat with billowed sail
Jackie kept a lookout perched on Puff's gigantic tail

Allemande and weave
Noble kings and princes would bow whene'r they came (Promenade)
Pirate ships would lower their flag when Puff roared out his name


CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Dragons live forever but not so girls and boys
Painted wings and giant strings make way for other toys

Allemande and weave
Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea (Promenade)
And frolicked in the autumn mist
In a land - called - Ho-nah - Lee

Puff The Magic Dragon
 
 

Chorus:
Puff, the magic dragon
Lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist
In a land called Honalee

Little Jackie Paper
Loved that rascal Puff,
And brought him strings and sealing wax
And other fancy stuff. Oh!

Chorus (2x)

Together they would travel
On a boat with billowed sail
Jackie kept a lookout perched
On Puff's gigantic tail

Noble kings and princes
Would bow whene'er they came,
Pirate ships would lower their flag
When Puff roared out his name. Oh!

Chorus (2x)

A dragon lives forever
But not so little boys
Painted wings and giant rings
Make way for other toys.

One grey night it happened,
Jackie Paper came no more
And Puff that mighty dragon,
He ceased his fealess roar.

His head was bent in sorrow,
Green scales fell like rain,
Puff no longer went to play
Along the cherry lane.

Without his life-long friend,
Puff could not be brave,
So Puff that mighty dragon
Sadly slipped into his cave. Oh!

Chorus (2x)

Lyrics by Peter Yarrow and Leonard Tipton.
Recorded by Peter, Paul and Mary (1963).
