Could This be a Story
 

Papa
dear Papa
tell me the time
when the dragon breathed fire on the sea
 
Oh Sweetheart
my Sweetheart
there are reasons too many
we won’t tell that story today
 
But Papa
dear Papa
I know this old story
you’ve told it since I’ve held a bottle
 
Stories need telling
and children are asking
and I ask for your telling today
 
Oh Sweetheart
my Sweetheart
this tale is too true
there are fires and dragons everywhere now
 
As we sit in our chair
together one love
there are fires and dragons everywhere now
 

 
Papa
dear Papa
could this be a story…
 
There once was a Papa
who cried out a storm
that doused out that dragon
that cooled the sea
that floated the boat
that took us away
my Papa and me
 
Could this be a story dear Papa?
