I’m in Love with the Dragon’s Dinner [song lyrics]

Song lyrics to I’m in Love with the Dragon’s Dinner, written by Larry Orenstein, performed by Desi Arnaz and Lucille Ball on the I Love Lucy episode, Lucy goes to Scotland

Desi: I’m in love with the dragon’s dinner
The dragon’s embraceable dinner
I’ll swear my love will e’er be true
I’ll serve ye with all me heart
But the hungry dragon will serve ye, too
He’ll serve ye a la carte
Lucy: He’ll serve me a la carte?!
Desi: He’ll serve ye a la carte
I’m in love with the dragon’s dinner
And the dragon’s a drag on me

I’m in love with the dragon’s dinner
The dragon’s embraceable dinner
My bonny chick you’ll always be
You’ll fill my every need
But woe is me, I hate to see
My chicken fricasseed
Lucy: Your chicken fricasseed?!
Desi: My chicken fricasseed
You’re the stew in the dragon’s dinner
And the dragon’s a drag on me

Maybe a nip of heather mist
Would put ye in the mood
Lucy: Well, that would be a novel twist
Even the stew would be stewed
But when that dragon starts to eat
I’ll really get his goat
I’ll kick and I’ll scratch and I’ll drag my feet
All the way down his throat!

Desi: I’m in love with the dragon’s dinner
The dragon’s embraceable dinner
Our wedding day we ne’er will see
Or our kids that might have been
Kith and kin we ne’er will be
So kith me while you kin
Kith me while you kin
And kith me once again

I’m in love, I’m in love
I’m in love, I’m in love
I’m in love, I’m in love
I’m in love, I’m in love

I’m in love with the dragon’s dinner
And the dragon’s a drag on me.
