Puff, the Magic Dragon - by Leonard Lipton and Peter Yarrow - arranged for Brass Quintet by Brian Bindner.
Peter Yarrow wrote this song in 1958 - he wrote it after coming home and seeing a poem on his typewriter with words about the dragon. He based his song on this poem, which was written by Lenny Lipton. A few years later when this became a hit, Yarrow found Lipton and gave him half the songwriting credit. Lipton, who was a camp counselor when Yarrow found him, gets extensive royalties from the song. The song is about losing the innocence of childhood, and at the end of the song, Puff goes back into his cave, which symbolizes this loss of childhood innocence.
