Sashay around your corner girl, turn partner left around
4 little ladies chain, go straight across the town
Chain right back across the set, turn 'em with an arm around
Join up hands and circle to the left and move that ring around
Oh allemande left your corner, allemande right your own
Allemande left your corner and promenade your own
Puff the magic dragon down by the sea
Take your partner right back home and swing a little while for me

FIGURE    A1, corner progression

Head 2 couples lead to the right, circle around that track
Head gents break and make a little line, walk 'em to the middle and back
Pass thru, with a wheel & deal, center 4 star thru
Same 2 ladies chain across, and turn a little girl you do
Cross trail, swing with the corner, she will swing with you
Promenade your partner go walking 2 by 2
Puff the magic dragon down by the sea
Walk your lady home with you, to the land of Anna Lee

Puff The Magic Dragon  (1958)

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).
