From my favorite Sunflower Storytime Blog :

 Dragon, Dragon Turn Around

Dragon, dragon, turn around
Dragon, dragon, touch the ground
Dragon, dragon, fly up high
Dragon, dragon, touch the sky
Dragon, dragon, swing your tail
Dragon, dragon, shake your scales
Dragon, dragon, give a ROAR
Dragon, dragon, sit on the floor

From my file box:

Did You Ever Find a Dragon?

sung to "Did You Ever See a Lassie?"

Did you ever find a dragon?
A dragon? A dragon? (Walk in a circle)
Did you ever find a dragon? All scaly & green?
With blazing eyes and fiery breath, (Point to eyes & mouth)
And swishy tail & green toes? (Wiggle behind & toes)
Did you ever find a dragon? All scaly & green?
(Walk in a circle)
