Dragon fly! Dragon fly!
Dragon fly! dragon fly! fly about the brook,
Sting all the bad boys who for the fish look;
But let the good boys catch all they can,
And then take them home to be fried in a pan,
With nice bread and butter they shall sup up their fish,
While all the little naughty boys shall only lick the dish.
This rhyme can be found in Rhymes Old and New collected by M.E.S. Wright, (1900).
