Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist
in a land called Honah Lee
Little Jackie Paper loved that Puff,
And him strings and sealing wax
and other stuff.

[Refrain]
Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist
in a land called Honah Lee
Oh Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist
in a land called Honah Lee.

And they would travel
on a boat with sail
Jackie kept a perched
on Puff's gigantic
Noble kings and
would bow they came,
Pirate ships would lower their
when Puff out his name - oh!

[Refrain]
Puff, the magic dragon ...

A dragon forever
but not so little and little boys
Painted and giant's rings
make for other toys.
One night it happened
Jackie Paper no more
And Puff that dragon
he his fearless roar.

His head was in sorrow
green fell like rain,
Puff no longer to play
along the lane.
Without his friend
Puff could not be
So Puff that mighty dragon
sadly into his - oh!

[Refrain]
Puff, the magic dragon ...

Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist

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

[Refrain]
Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist
in a land called Honah Lee
Oh Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist
in a land called Honah Lee.

And 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 whenever they came,
Pirate ships would lower their flags
when Puff roared out his name - oh!

[Refrain]
Puff, the magic dragon ...

A dragon lives forever
but not so little girls and little boys
Painted wings and giant's rings
make way for other toys.
One grey night it happened
Jackie Paper came no more
And Puff that mighty dragon
he ceased his fearless 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!

[Refrain]
Puff, the magic dragon ...
