CHORUS:
Snaps and snails and dragon’s tails
And banners white and red
These are the pieces of the dreams
That dance about my head, tra-la
That dance about my head

My father is a gallant knight
As everyone must see
With armour bright and belt of white
And a helm as big as me
And I shall be my father’s squire
My hobby-horse I’ll ride
With father’s sword in both my hands
I’ll stand proud by his side

(CHORUS)

My mother is a lady fine
As surely all agree
With visage rare and raven hair
And arms for holding me
I’ll buckle on my squire’s red belt
And ride forth on a quest
And I’ll rescue her from dangers foul
Before my morning rest

(CHORUS)

Our castle seems so very big
But the neighbours’ seems big too
Five days a week
My parents go and do what parents do
But then there is the weekend
With their gowns and armour bright
And both my parents look
The way they do in my dreams each night

My eyelids are so heavy now
My mother’s at my side
I think I’ll take a little nap
And off to dreamland glide
Where I will mount my hobby-horse
To save my mother fair
And stand beside my father
And watch dragons take to air

Snaps and snails and dragon’s tails
And banners white and red
These are the pieces of the dreams
That dance about my head, tra-la
That dance about my head
