Calgon - My Pet Dragon

My pet dragon Calgon lives in a lair.
 He comes when I summon - if I dare.
 Standing motionless except long flowing hair.
 Over and over again I find myself there.
 Caught by the trappings of the wizards snare.
 The price of the ticket or passenger fare.
 Leaving me breathless and worse for the wear.

Calgon approaches so courageous and unscared.
 Giving me a knowing and hypnotizing stare.
 Then announces his presence with a resounding blare.
 As he trumpets his weapon with a fiery air.
 Down goes the enemy with all their wares.
 Trespassers should heed warning and so beware.
 There will be no mercy - Calgon never plays fair.

When all is said and done I'm left very aware.
 No one will quite understand our love affair.
 Or how his loyalty and warmth are beyond compare.
 Wrapping me up tight in his protective care.
 Promising there is no more danger wielding despair.
 So matters not to me no one else is actually there.
 Calgon is always waiting for me at the top of those stairs.
