The Dragon In The Cellar

By Nick Toczek

There's a dragon! There's a dragon! There's a dragon in the cellar! Yeah, we've got a cellar-dweller. There's a dragon in the cellar. He's a cleanliness fanatic, takes his trousers and his jacket to the dragon from the attic who puts powder by the packet in a pre-set automatic with a rattle and a racket That's disturbing and dramatic. There's a dragon! There's a dragon! There's a dragon in the cellar with a flame that's red 'n' yeller. There's the dragon in the cellar... ...and a dragon on the roof who's only partly waterproof, so she's borrowed an umbrella from the dragon in the cellar. There's a dragon! There's a dragon! There's a dragon in the cellar! If you smell a panatella it's the dragon in the cellar. And the dragon from the study's helping out his cellar buddy, getting wet and soap-suddy with the dragon from the loo there to give a hand too, while the dragon from the porch supervises with a torch. Though the dragon from the landing, through a slight misunderstanding, is busy paint-stripping and sanding. There's a dragon! There's a dragon! There's a dragon in the cellar! Find my dad and tell the feller there's a dragon in the cellar... ...where the dragon from my room goes zoom, zoom, zoom in a cloud of polish and spray perfume, cos he's the dragon whom they pay to brighten up the gloom with a mop and a duster and a broom, broom, broom. There's a dragon! There's a dragon! There's a dragon in the cellar! Gonna get my mum and tell her there's a dragon in the cellar.
