Am * E7 * F C D * Once there was a dragon who terrorized the land
Am * E7 * G * *DDC CGGAm Turned houses into gravestones, and castles into sand
Am * E7 * F C D * He took a princess captive -- chained her up in his den
Am * E7 * G * *GGA ACCD The king held out a handsome sum to see her home again.
D * D7 * G * Gm *
[SOLO]
D * D7 * G * Bb C D * * *
Am * E7 * F C D * A brave young knight took courage, and with his mighty sword
Am * E7 * G * *DDC CGGAm Braved mountains deep and oceans tall to rescue his reward
Am * E7 * F C D * But as he set out on his quest, she called him on the phone
Am * E7 * G * *GGA ACCD She said "I like this place ok, now please leave us alone."

CHORUS

D D7 G Gm (And when you go... let me know)
D D7 G Gm (And when you're gone... don't be long)
D D7 G Gm Maidens in distress... couldn't care less
Bb C D D You could have stayed home in bed
Without a thought, he mounted his steed and raced away in the night 
To find that maiden fair and slay the beast who kept her locked up tight
The knight rode day and night through rain and snow and fog and mud
His eyes were blinded by the wind and sun and sweat and tears and blood

At last he reached the fearsome cave and prepared for war
The dragon let loose a fearsome cry that was very hard to ignore
And as they both did battle, she looked around in distress
"Will you two morons take this outside -- you've made a horrible mess"
