Dance with the Dragon
by Jefferson Starship



All right

It makes you wanna get away
You know you got to stay
Lookin' for love, but you know it ain't' easy
Lookin' for freedom and everybody needs it

All the young dudes, in jail
Will remember when the laws are finally changed
And they'll wonder, 'bout Oscar
Who spent five years in a Texican jail

What do you say? What about you?
Baby what cha gonna do, 'bout Mary Lou?
She died in Santa Rita
Billy shot it out in Alameda

It makes you wanna get away
You know you got to stay
Lookin' for love but you know it ain't easy
Dance with the dragon it's the year that it breathes

Oh, slow fire, slow fire
'Nam vets, scared yet
Heroes dreams
And broken bayonets

No choice
No voice
I got to find a reason
For my heart to rejoice

Yankee Doodle get it up
And stick a feather in your hat
Yankee Doodle keep it up
And call it macaroni

Yankee Doodle get it up
And stick a feather in your hat
Yankee Doodle keep it up
And call it macaroni

I wanna get away
I know I got to stay
Lookin' for love, but you know it ain't easy
Dance with the dragon it's the year that it breathes

Slow fire, slow fire, all right, dragon year
So clear, the sound of wings burnin' in my ear
Is it the risin' sun? Is it the settin' sun?
Dance with the dragon 'til the year is done

Yankee Doodle get it up
And stick a feather in your hat
Yankee Doodle keep it up
And call it macaroni
Yeah, yeah, yeah

I can see by the smile on your face
That you know what I mean
If you can hear me
Won't you come near me whenever you can?
And it all gets down to love

Love is hard
Love is hard
Love is hard
Love is hard
