Peter, Paul & Mary - Puff, the magic dragon

TRIBUTE TO PETER YARROW (Manhattan, New York, US, 31-5-1938)

Hoy cumple 79 años el cantante y compositor Peter Yarrow, quien, junto a Paul Stookey y Mary Travers, formó parte del trio folk Peter, Paul and Mary entre 1961 y 1970 en una primera etapa y entre 1978 y 2008 en una segunda. Lo recordamos con Puff, the magic dragon, canción con la que Yarrow musicó un poema de Leonard Lipton de 1959 y que, en las voces del terceto neoyorquino, alcanzó el nº 2 en Billboard a comienzos de 1963.



Puff, the magic dragon
(Lipton / Yarrow)

Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist
in a land called Honnah Lee
Little Jackie Paper loved that rascal Puff
And brought him strings and sealing wax and other fancy stuff, oh!
Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist
in a land called Honnah Lee
Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist
in a land called Honnah Lee
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 whene'er they came
Pirate ships would lower their flags when Puff roared out his name, oh!
Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist
in a land called Honnah Lee
Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist
in a land called Honnah Lee
A dragon lives forever but not so little boys
Painted wings and giant 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!
Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist
in a land called Honnah Lee
Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist
in a land called Honnah Lee
