Popular cartoon theme song

Post by ProfessorVerb »

This is a complete waste of time, probably, so if you're busy you might want to just keep on surfing. If you have a minute or two, though, this will be fun.

Here's a theme song to a popular American cartoon series, "Dragon Tales." The lyrics appear below; the music is great (my daughter and I try to sing it together but we're terrible), and I have trouble keeping up with the ladies who sing it.

If you can sing along successfully, you have accomplished something. Good luck! (Don't blame me if you can't get this melody out of your head.)

Dragon Tales Theme Song

--

Emmy wished on a dragon scale,
And that’s what started Dragon Tales.
Around the room the dragons flew,
But Emmy and Max knew what to do.
They climbed on the backs of their dragon friends,
Now the adventures never end!

Dragon Tales, Dragon Tales
It’s almost time for Dragon Tales.
Come along and take my hand,
Let’s all go to Dragon Land.

There’s Ord he’s the biggest,
Not so brave of heart.
There’s Cassie,
So shy, and so very smart.
There’s Zak and Wheezie and their tales of fun,
Cause you know two heads are better than one.

Dragon Tales, Dragon Tales
It’s almost time for Dragon Tales.
Come along and take my hand,
Let’s all go to Dragon Land.

--

See? I told you that would be fun...

I have two daughters (one is almost 11 years and the other is 26 years -- yikes! [different marriages]). I have also been blessed with two absolutely perfect grandsons (second one was born 3 months ago). Life is good... but our singing is still terrible :)

I'm a firm believer that singing is good for the soul, so I keep trying anyway. I especially like to loudly sing the theme song to "Gilligan's Island" in the shower (it makes our dogs howl, but that is a small price to pay).

http://home.mn.rr.com/classictv/Gilliga ... eSong.html


Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale,
a tale of a fateful trip.
That started from this tropic port,
aboard this tiny ship.
The mate was a mighty sailin' man,
the skipper brave and sure.
Five passengers set sail that day,
for a three hour tour, a three hour tour………
The weather started getting rough,
the tiny ship was tossed.
If not for the courage of the fearless crew,
the Minnow would be lost; the Minnow would be lost.
The ship set ground on the shore of this uncharted desert isle,
with Gilligan, the Skipper too,
the Millionaire, and his Wife,
the Movie Star, the Professor and Mary Ann,
here on Gilligan's Isle.

And then, after our 30 minutes of fun with the Castaways was done, we would hear…….

So this is the tale of our castaways,
they're here for a long, long time.
They'll have to make the best of things,
it's an uphill climb.
The first mate and his skipper too,
will do their very best,
to make the others comfortable,
in the tropic island nest.
No phones, no lights, no motor cars,
not a single luxury!
Like Robinson Crusoe,
it's primitive as can be.
So join us here each week my friend,
you're sure to get a smile.
From seven stranded Castaways,
Here on Gilligan's Isle.


This song is an American icon and was also a lullaby for both of my daughters when they were babies -- it always worked too :)
