Lyrics

A princess lying by the lake
Your king is just too old to act his age
You're calling out for someone strong
That's when your knight in armor comes along

He's the one they call St. George
Riding high upon his horse
Watch him cut that dragon down to size
Na na na na

He don't need gold, he don't need any reward
All he asks is that you believe in his power
Believe in him
He don't need love, he don't need to be adored
All he asks is that you believe in his power
Believe in him

So, princess, throw your girdle down
And he will wear it for his rightful crown
Doing your bidding when you ask
His Ascalon is up to any task

He's the one they call St. George
Riding high upon his horse
Watch him cut that dragon down to size
Na na na na na na

He don't need gold, he don't need any reward
All he asks is that you believe in his power
Believe in him
He don't need love, he don't need to be adored
All he asks is that you believe in his power
Believe in him

Ride higher
