about

This song is about a grand knight from a kingdom of old, long ago. In this place, a fiery dragon rules the skies and captures a maiden. The King and Queen choose the knight to fight the dragon and rescue the girl. The knight is able to overcome the dragon, but he gives his life doing so.

lyrics

There once soared a fiery dragon and it ruled the sky by command
And a damsel was held captive by the creature’s ruthless remands
The reigning King and Queen sent a decree out across the land
A noble knight was found with a steel and a powerful hand

Slay the dragon and save the girl
Became the knight’s grand quest
Would he be the one who would overcome
The creature in its nest

The dragon lived in a lair of gold deep in the caverns high
Its wings spanned huge and scaly rising quickly in the sky
Its breath like a sulfurous furnace spewing to all the passers by
The dragon lay undefeated by anyone who tried

Oh, away, oh, oh, oh away, oh, oh, away, oh, oh, away
Oh, away, oh, oh, oh away, oh, oh, away, oh, oh, away

Slay the dragon and save the girl
Became the knight’s grand quest
Would he be the one who would overcome
The creature in its nest

The knight climbed up the mountain to battle the beast alone
The dragon came out with fury force tearing limb and bone
With last breath the knight raised up his shield and blocked its fiery groan
And slayed with sword into its throat having bravely overthrown

Slay the dragon and save the girl
Became the grand knight’s quest
He would be the one who would overcome
The creature in its nest

Slay the dragon and save the girl
Became the grand knight’s quest
He would be the one who would overcome
The creature in its nest
