Once upon a time,
And once upon a dream,
The land on which I frolicked was nothing as it seemed
The sky was ruby-red, the sea was crystal-blue;
Come on the dragon of crystal lagoon, where are you?
My time is running quick,
My time is running fast
The water is corrupting, and rationing the hours I last
For I'll be roaring with the seas soon;
Come on dragon of crystal lagoon where are you?
But alas! My terrible thoughts of fear,
She comes with unquestionable beauty,
'Come on, hop on my scaly back for I know it is my duty!'
So on I got and then I knew that I would be there soon
As we passed the dancing of the clouds,
Oh! The dragon of crystal lagoon.
