St. George and the Dragonet Lyrics
Narrator: The legend you are about to hear is true
Only the needle should be changed to protect the record

St. George: This is the countryside
My name is St. George
I'm a knight
Saturday, July 10th. 8:05 pm
I was working out of the castle on the nightwatch
when a call came in from the Chief
A dragon had been devouring maidens
Homicide. My job: slay him

St. George: You call me, Chief

Chief: Yes, the dragon again, devouring maidens
The King's daughter may be next

St. George: Mmm-hmm. You got a lead

Chief: Oh, nothing much to go on.
Say, did you take that .45 automatic
into the lab to have them check on it

St. George: Yeah. You were right

Chief: I was right

St. George: Yeah. It was a gun

8:22 pm. I talked to one of the maidens
who had almost been devoured

St. George: Could I talk to you, Ma'am

Maiden: Who are you

St. George: I'm St. George, Ma'am
Homicide, Ma'am
Want to ask you a few questions, Ma'am
I understand you were almost devoured by the dragon, Ma'am
Is that right, dragon

Maiden: It was terrible.
He breathed fire on me
He burned me already

St. George: How can I be sure of that, Ma'am

Maiden: Believe me, I got it straight from the dragon's mouth

St. George: 11:45 pm. I rode over the King's Highway.
I saw a man. Stopped to talk to him
Pardon me, Sir
