Life is an amazing adventure Not for the faint of heart The ups and downs, the challenges Can weaken resolve from the start When you're a very young child Things seem so simple each day Biggest decision you're faced with What kind of game to play Girls don't enter the picture They're annoying and spoil the fun Whoever invited them to play? They can't even shoot a gun All they want to do each day Is play with their dolls and stuff They never want to go climbing trees Or wrestle to see who's tough But eventually we all become teenagers The girls seem different now Our attitude towards them changes Suddenly we're moonstruck, kerpow! Next thing you know it's junior prom And we're trying to show we can dance Not much rhythm here I'm afraid Like a turkey walking round in a trance You meet your soul mate and marry her Buy a house with a view of the lake Soon you're blessed with a couple of kids Then you're a Grandpa for goodness sake Well that was a whirlwind journey Through a lifetime of happy and sad Now be honest, you loved every minute 'Twas the best time you've ever had! © Jack Ellison 2014

    Ha! Dragon's already turkey walking around in a trance without girls! I think that he hit too many trees with his head yesterday. The Elvin King wouldn't give him his magic... He said if Dragon can't fly without hitting a tree he wasn't ready yet. So, Dragon spent the rest of the day in flying lessons. The Elven King had to spell every tree in the forest to protect them from Dragon's flying. He'll be more careful exactly WHAT he says to Dragon next time! They were both worn out by days end.
