Song:  Going on a Dragon Hunt

Going on a Dragon Hunt, going to catch a big one,
I’m not afraid, What a beautiful day!

Long, wavy grass!
We can’t go over it!
We can’t go under it!
We’ve got to go through it!
Swish! Swish!

A forest!
A big, scary forest!
Clomp! Clomp!

A moat!
A deep, cold moat!
Splash! Splash!

Thick, oozing mud!
Squish! Squish!

A cave!
A deep, dark cave!
Tiptoe! Tiptoe!

Quick, back through the cave!
Back through the mud!
Back through the moat!
Back through the forest!
And sit down, safely back in our seats.

Song:  Castle Capers

I am the king of running,
I run and run and run.
My subjects all run with me,
And we have so much fun!

I am the prince of turning,
I turn and turn and turn.
My subjects all turn with me
It’s an easy thing to learn!

I am the princess of dancing,
I dance and dance and dance
My subjects all dance with me
And dance when they get the chance!

I am the Queen of jumping,
I jump and jump and jump.
My subjects all jump with me
And sit down with a bump.
