Bearded Dragon Poems and Songs

Below are original poems and songs, from the talented people
on the Pogona list, an internet discussion list dedicated to
the topic of bearded dragons (Pogona vitticeps).


Haiku

(Americanized versions, with syllable structure of 5, 7, 5; some with the traditional seasonal reference)


Willow:

Basking in sunlight
the smell of morning crickets
eaten in a flash


Boid:
It appears my Remi is going to lay soon, so I put together some bad haiku about it:

A lumpy dragon
paces and digs constantly.
Lumps will be gone soon.


Little globes of joy
I have buried lovingly.
Why'd you dig them up?


Inspired by the recent Steve Irwin special:

Warning to humans
Please do not tickle my beard
I will bite your nose
----

Male behaviors..

Head bob and black beard
"Hey can I buy you a drink?"
Exact same purpose

about Jen's little tub-o-lizard Gwenny.

Voracious Gwenny
Chases crickets on the rug.
Belly friction burns.

In earlier times,
Michigan had crickets too.
Then Gwenny showed up.

And finally,

Lizard in motion.
It tends to stay in motion.
This is Gwenertia.

Poems

Daisy :
we all pray 2 the Pogona God during brumation,

my dear Pogona's gone 2 sleep
all this winter I will weep
I'll poke & prod 2 no avail
My bearded buddies tucked in well
They'll slumber through the days & nights,
while us slaves have all the frights.
But do not worry slaves of new,
spring will bring ur pets back 2 u!!

heheh

Dragon light:

Dragon dragon basking bright
then sleeping soundly through the night
Who art this curious creature
who comes to light up our world?

Dragon sight:

like royalty
you stare at me
as if to say
Who goes my way?
head tipping
tail swishing
arm waving
loves a bathing
fun loving
food is coming
never waits
to reciprocate
always there
with a loving stare
through a maze
of differerent gazes

Oh delightful Dragon!

This is from Jon (age 13) a poem about Drey (actually Jon tells me I've been spelling it wrong! Its Dre as in a dr. whos a rapper- ?? i'm just a not very with it mum when it comes to music)

Dre is a rude boy
Dre is a funny boy
Dre is a mad man
Dre is a beardie boy
Dre is a loony boy
Dre is a cool dude
Dre is a cricket muncher
Dre is a giant
Dre is my bredwin

This one is by Joseph -who has just had his 9th birthday recently (he’s got quite a sense of humour)!

BD dragon small
BD dragon great
BD dragon go on holiday
and come back with a mate

BD dragon frightenend
BD dragon brave
BD dragon go to the seaside
and end up lost in a cave

BD dragon scary
BD dragon cute
BD dragon have your tongue pierced
and end up being mute

BD dragon weak
BD dragon strong
BD dragon buy some stink bonbs
and suddenly- what a pong!

I think bd dragons are cute
You might think so too
As soon as my brother got one
My cat got confused and said MOO !!

Songs

Bea (Barbara Knoll)
This is Gus & Mo, Bea's dragons. We've decided to go out caroling later this week and wanted to know if any of you want to join us? Just in case you do, here's one of the songs we'll be singing. We set it to the tune of "Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire" -- we've found it's easier to get the people to play a guitar or whatever if we use their songs. Let's hear it!

Dragons lounging in a basking spot,
Catching crickets near their nose.
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir of friends of the "pagonoes."
Everybody knows some turkey and some waxy worms
Help to make the season bright.
Tiny tots with a sandfire glow will find it hard to sleep tonight.
They know that Santa's on his way --
He's loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh.
And every mother's child is gonna try
To learn from reindeer how they, too, can fly.
And so I'm offering this simple phrase to kids from 1 to 92.
Although it's been said many times, many ways,
Merry Christmas, Dragonny Christmas, Merry Christmas to you!

Deborah Stevenson
Very good Bea ... now you got me started. Thought when your dragons were done caroling they might like a bedtime story..

Twas the night before Christmas
and all through the house
Were some crickets, some greens
And a small pinky mouse

The hatchlings were nestled
all snug on their branches
Envisioning colorful mates
from Sandfire Dragon Ranches.

The stockings were hung
by the food dish with care
In hopes that some superworms
Soon would be there.

And dad in his hammock
and mom on her rock
Were bobbing and waving
In time with the clock.

When from the screen top above
there arose such a clatter
They blackened their beards
Wondering what was the matter.

When what to their wondering eyes did appear
A human hand sporting a plastic reindeer.
The reindeer was placed in the substrate floor
Looking quite out of place in the desert decor.

"I'll lick it, I'll bite it, it looks too big to eat
Perhaps a good tail whip and it will be beat."
Dad bobbed and bobbed, and mom waved her arm
Until they both realized it meant them no harm.

So with bellies full of crickets and not up to the task,
They returned to their spots and continued to bask,
But I heard them exclaim as the timer shut the light,
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.

~ jude ~, (MiLadyDragonn)

"Dragons in the Sun" to the tune of "Strangers in the Night

Dragons in the sun
Exchanging glances
Basking in the sun
What were the chances
We'd be sharing tanks
Before the day was through?

Something in that wave
Was so inviting.
That even my slave
Saw it exciting
I felt my beard go black
And knew it must be true.

**Dragons in the sun
Two lonely beardies
We were Dragons in the sun
up to the moment
when I first bobbed my head,
rejection, did I dread..
As you did push-ups , Oh so slow
I bobbed back and now we know.

Ever since that day,
We've been together.
I asked you if I may
You said "whatever!"
Now the deed is done
for Dragons in the sun!

**Dragons in the sun
Now you're a "digger"
We were dragons in the sun
You're so much bigger!
Now you have no time for me
I wonder what will be
Once you lay your eggs without me
You won't even care about me

Our slave has other plans
and is selective
My fate is in those hands
but it's effective
I get to have more fun
Sweet Dragon in the sun!!

doobee doobee doo
dooweebah
doobee dahhhh!!

Daisy Yadon (Bambi)
sung to the tune of We 3 Kings...

We the dragons are going so far,
human slaves you know you are,
you proceed us
just to feed us,
now we're waiting, gonna starve..
OOOHHHHhhhhh
Dragon normal, Dragon Bright,
waiting though this endless night,
always eating, need more feedings
chasing supers near & far...

Des Wong, Dragon Songs
I loveeeee having a baby bd :)

The itsy bitsy beardie
climbed to the basking spot
down came the rays
and made the beardie hot.
Off went the light
and the spot became dark
and the itsy bitsy beardie
took to sleep on his bark

Scampie's song for the day....I wrote this last spring when he was a black hole for crickets....btw, Scampi's his nickname

for it's one..two..three crix, give me more....

Short Yucca & Daytona tune that just came to mind...
(to Elvis' Hound Dog)

You ain't nothin' but a horndawg
bobbin' all the time.
You ain't nothin' but a horndawg
bobbin' all the time.
I'm bobbing n waving you away
and you get no neck of mine.

"Gwenny wants to have fun" (About Jen’s dragon, the statuesque Gwenny.)
(to original tune by Cindy Lauper):

Sherbert colored under the basking light
Gwenny wakes up to see if mom's doing breakfast all right
Oh momma Jen, berries, criccies, worms, more than one
A dwaggie gets more than one
Oh a dwaggie gets more than oneeeeeeee

Some days, this pretty dragon girl
She scampers about as if she owned the whole world
Some days, she wants to play in the sun
Oh Gwen, she's a feisty one
Oh Gwen, Just wants to have

That's all she really wants
some fun
When the basking time is done
Gwen, she wants to have fun
Oh Gwen just wants to have fun

Alpha girl, she flirts with the boys all night
She watches them as they puff, prance, flash with all of their might
Oh Gwenny dear, you're having way too much fun
Cuz you don't even want one
Oh Gwen, she just wants to have

That's all she really wants
some fun
When the basking time is done
Gwen -- she wants to have fun
Oh Gwen just wants to have fun
She is number one
Gwen wants to have fun

"Oops! I did *it* again!!! "
(to Britney Spears tune)

Oops! Oops!
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Oops! Oops!
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

Oops! I did it again...
I made you believe that the poopbombing would end
Oh Mommy
It might seem really bad
But it doesn't mean that I'm still mad

Oh mommy mommy

Oops!...I Did It Again
I pooped in your bed...got lost in the sheets
Oh mommy mommy
Oops!...you think I'm so sweet...that I wont' re-peat

And your pillow is so soft...that is just so typically me

Oh mommy mommy
Oops!...you think I'm so sweet...that I wont' re-peat
I'm not that innocent

Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Oops! Oops!
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

Des Wong's Iguana songs…:
Potty Dance #5
(to Lou Bega' Mambo #5)

jump up and down go move it all around
shake your snout to the sound
put your vent on the ground
take one step left
and one step right
one to the front and one to the side
wag your vent once
and wag your vent twice
and if it looks like this
then you are doing it right...

a little bit of collards in my life
a little bit of mustards in my side
a little bit of squash is all i need
a little bit of peas is what i see
a little of bit of basking in the sun
a little bit of heat all night long
a little bit of coaxing here i am
and then do the potty dance i can!

"Potty time"

"Izzy, before you *go*...there's something that I want you to know."
"Oh, um, it's about the pillow...Isn't it...?"
"Yeah, yes it is."
"But your pillow is much nicer than a hard slippery cold tub"
"Well Izzy, the water is warm and the tub has a liner...."
"Oh, you shouldn't have"

Oops!...I...did it again...on your bed
Got lost in the sheets...oh mommy
Oops!...you (oops you) think that (mommy) pillow is safe!
I'm not that innocent!

Oops!...I Did It Again
I pooped in your bed...got lost in the sheets
Oh mommy mommy
Oops!...you think I'm so sweet...that I wont' re-peat
I'm not that innocent

Oops!...I Did It Again
I pooped in your bed...got lost in the sheets
Oh mommy mommy
Oops!...you think I'm so sweet...that I wont' re-peat
I'm not that innocent

Great "Balls" of Fire
(to Jerry Lee Lewis' tune, was written for a friend's very ORANGE ig)

You shake my nerves and you rattle my brain
Too much nipping drives me insane
You whip your tail, then I flail
Goodness, gracious, great balls of fire

I laughed at first 'cause I thought it was funny
Til you went and chased down a bunny
I've changed my mind, I'm in a bind
Goodness, gracious, great balls of fire

Orange Harry, please be good
Hug your lovesock, wellllll
I want you to love it like a lover should
Your mine, in time
I'd like to tell the world that your fine fine fine fine

I chew my nails and I twiddle my thumbs
I'm really scared, cuz you've been in the sun
Your tangerine, I wanna scream
Goodness, gracious, great balls of fire!!

Please no Harry, love bites hurt
Let go Harry, wellllll
Ouch Harry your tail keeps me on alert
Your mine, in time
I'd like to tell the world that your fine fine fine fine

I chew my nails and I twiddle my thumbs
I'm waiting out the season, it's no fun
Chill my Harry, my orange baby
Goodness, gracious, great balls of fire!!

Squeak* goes the iguana
(to Ernie's Rubber Ducky)

Green Iguana, you're the one
You sure can poop a ton
Green Iguana, but I'm still fond of you

(woh woh , bee doh)
Green Iguana, joy of joys
When I tub you, you make some noise
Green Iguana, you're not stinky, it's true

(doo doo doo dooooo, doo doo)

CHORUS:
Every day when I
Take you to the tubby
I watch you wag your tail and
vent and then go bubbly

(rub-a dub-a iggy)

Green Iguana, you're so sweet
And I'm lucky that you don't eat meat
Green Iguana, I'm awfully fond of you

(repeat chorus)

Green Iguana, you're so fine
And I'm lucky that you're mine
Green Iguana, I'm awfully fond fond of
Green Iguana, but only one that I want of
Green Iguana, I"m awfully fond of you!

(doo doo be doo)

LuvSock
(to B-52's Love Shack)

If you see a faded sign by the side of the road that says
15 miles to the... Love Sock! Love Sock yeah
He's headin' down the green highway, lookin' for the love getaway
Heading for the love getaway, love getaway,

Well it's set way back in the middle of a bed,
Just a funky old sock and he gotta get back

Smeggies on the mattress

Smeggies on the front porch
Smeggies on the hallway

The LuvSock is a nice green thang where he can get it together
Luv Sock baby! Love Sock, that's where it's at!

Huggin' and a lickin', gruntin' and a lovin', wearin' next to nothing

Movin' around and around and around!
