Текст песни:

One fine day while on my way to Ipwich by sea
I met a rawther charming chap who asked me in to tea
It seems he was a dragon You know, the kind with wings
teeth and tails, and claws, and scales,
and all those dragonlike details.
I admit I jumped a bit when he began to sing:

"I'm the Reluctant Dragon what ho! Quite so!
The very reluctant dragon Oh, very, very, don't you know! (The British version says "veddy veddy don't you know")
They call me the timid dragon What rot! I'm not!
I just won't fight I'd rather play
I know I shan't get hurt that way Here we go gathering nuts in May
Whoops! I'm reluctant!"

After we had sipped our tea a thought popped in my head
A dragon here, by jove that's queer he really should be dead
I said, I say, look here, I said, aren't you a bit extinct,
Then the blighter gave a cry, heaved his bosom with a sigh,
Wiped a teardrop from his eye, then flushed and coiled his wings

I'm the reluctant dragon, what ho, quite so,
The very reluctant dragon, oh very, very, don't you know,
They call me the timid dragon, what rot, I'm not,
When others fight, I run away, its just because I'm built that way,
For I'm to be queen of May today, whoops, I'm reluctant.

Then he told of knights of old, it seems they were the bunk,
They barged about in suits of tin and other sundry junk,
The maidens fair with flaxen hair just littered up the place,
Then they'd ask him in to tea, which happened jolly frequently,
He would sigh reproachfully and put them in their place.

"I'm the Reluctant Dragon. What ho! Quite so!
The Very Reluctant Dragon. Oh, veddy, veddy, don't you know?
They call me a timid dragon. What rot! I'm not!
While others fight, I bill and coo,
So you chase me, and I'll chase you,
Roses are red, and violets are blue,
Whoops! I'm reluctant."

The night wore on, we talked till dawn, of many, many things,
Of fish and chips and cricket beds and kidney pies and kings,
At break of day, I slipped away for Ipswich by the Sea,
And no matter where I am, in Piccadilly or Siam,
When I have my tea and jam, this song comes back to me.

"I'm the Reluctant Dragon what ho! Quite so!
The very reluctant dragon Oh, very, very, don't you know!
They call me the timid dragon What rot! I'm not!
I just won't fight I'd rather play
I know I shan't get hurt that way Here we go gathering nuts in May
Whoops! I'm reluctant!"
