Beasties

This dragon had two furious wings
One upon each shoulder,
With a sting in his tail as long as a flail,
Which made him bolder and bolder;
He had long claws,
And in his jaws,
Four and fifty teeth of iron
With a hide as tough
As any buff,
Which did him round inviron.'

The Dragon of Wantley
Traditional ballad
