Swing Your Dragon Tail 

Turn around once and swing your dragon tail.
Turn around twice and flap your wings like sails.
Turn around three times, stomp your feet and roar.
Jump up high and then sit down on the floor.

How Do you Feed a Dragon?

How do you feed a dragon
Who is tall, tall, tall? (reach up high)
When you’re just a little kid
Who is small, small, small. (crouch down)
If you could stand on your tiptoes, (tiptoes)
Even though you are little,
The dragon could bend down (bend down)
And meet you in the middle! (do this a few times going faster each time).

I’m a Little Dragon 
Tune: I’m a Little Teapot

I’m a little dragon, strong and stout.
Here is my tail and here is my snout.
If you get me upset, you better watch out!
I’ll give you something to shout about!
