NOTE: This version, with the updates not shown here, has reached over 1000 verses. We intend to publish, so be patient!

DISCLAIMER

The opinions expressed in some or all of the verses are not necessarily the opinions of Joe Bethancourt, his wife, kids, family or friends. The classifications of the verses are arbitrary, and do not necessarily reflect the actual beliefs of the groups mentioned. No denigration of any group mentioned is intended by the author of this page, and any verses that might be considered such are included because we are collecting verses for this song, NOT because we are advocating discrimination or hatred based on race, religion, ethnic origin or culture. The movement towards "political correctness" is, we believe, simply another form of "power over" on the part of those with a totalitarian mind-set. Therefore, this song may not be PC, and we don't care.

If you are easily offended, if you are under legal age in your viewing area, if you just can't take the occasional 'bad word,' then STOP READING NOW.

THE ORIGINS OF "REAL OTR"
John Boardman, the East Coast collector of this song, says in _ANAKREON_ #8 (1 Nov., 1980): "So far, two different stories have come in of how "That Real Old Time Religion" originated. Robin R. Arnhold writes that "Lady Cybele" started it a decade or more ago, and says that (five of the early verses) are of her composition, with a chorus of "Give Me That Old Craft Religion." 'The first exposure to people other than Madison-area pagans came when Lady Cybele sang some of her songs in informal sessions at the Gnostica festivals in the early 1970's.' "

"But Allison Harlow claims that 'Victor Anderson, the blind shaman of San Leandro...first began singing these verses; we taught the idea to NROOGD and _Nemeton_, whence it caught on in the Mid-West...and finally reached the East Coast.'"

John writes further in _ANAKREON_ #12 (1 Nov. 1981): "Rus (Gulevitch) has a resolution of the situation presented in _ANAKREON_ #8, in which two different stories of the origin of "That Real Old Time Religion" were presented:"

" 'I've heard about Cybele being the originator of OTR, too,' he wrote, 'But I also heard that several covens (who had no contact with each other) got the same idea at different times, and Cybele is but the one who first made it more or less public. Such things happen often enough.' "

To which I (Joe Bethancourt) can only add that I heard it in the early 1970's and have been collecting, and enjoying it ever since. It's gotten into the oral tradition in Science-Fiction Fandom, a little into the SCA, and is being sung in the folkie community quite a bit too.....which means we can -never- collect -all- the verses .... it's a -living- traditional song.

Some of these verses refer to local stuff that all of us might not understand, but hey .... they're good verses anyway so I left 'em in.

And probably several more people but I dunno who they are. And they probably won't admit to it. The 666th verse (+) collected for this collection was written by Leslie Fish, which somehow figures.

I have categorized the verses as best that I and a roomful of references could do. If I have anything placed wrongly, let me know. Nicely. If I have left out your favorite religion, please write me some verses for it!

Please don't take offense that I have not given the author's names for each verse (tho Leslie's is marked by a +). In many cases, I honestly don't know precisely who wrote which ones, and if it's any consolation, there are quite a few in here that I wrote, and have not put my name to either. After all, this song belongs to EVERYONE, which is why I have -not- claimed copyright to anything except this version/arrangement. This song is in the Public Domain. So there!

I must add that there are a couple of pirated versions of this, using my format with no credit given, on the World Wide Web. I don't mind the posting of the lyrics, but I sure as hell resent someone not giving me credit.

You are herewith invited to sing this song at every opportunity, to use it to puncture Windbags, annoy Jerks, and in general have a wonderful time laughing at our human foibles and follies....for (the) God(s) love(s) laughter.

If you wanna think that I am some kind of Evil Rotten Person for this song, then all I can say is "Get a life!" And then write some verses that express -your- opinions and send them to me. I'll be more than happy to include them, if they're not Terminally Obscene to the point of legal action.

THE REAL OLD TIME RELIGION
(Tune: "Old Time Religion")

(Chorus): Give me that real old time religion (3X)
It's good enough for me!

                          AFRICAN PAGANISM


We will hang out with Anansi               
He's the spider god we fancy               
And he wears eight legged pants, He's      
got enough legs there for me!              

I will visit with Nyame
The Ashanti god of all, hey
I will bring him a salami
And we'll both sit down to tea! 

Every self-respecting Zulu                 
Used to tell Nkulunkulu                    
"If you make my dreams come true, you      
Sure are good enough for me               

But He answered, "Go embarka
'Pon the path employed by Shaka
(It's more gruesome than Clive Barker)
Then you're good enough for me


                   AGNOSTICS AND ATHEISTS


AGNOSTIC/ATHEIST CHORUS: Gimme NO kind-a religion
                         Gimme NO kind-a religion
                         Gimme NO kind-a religion
                         It simply ain't for me!


Lots of folks are into God          Let us praise God for creation
And I've often thought it odd       And he made more than one nation
Do they love Him for His bod'?      Let's give Him a big ovation,
Or is it ideology?                  And then tell Him "Let us be!"


I don't care about Jehover            It's the Fundie Right's solution
Soon his office term is over          To put Christian absolution
I would sooner worship Rover          In the U.S. Constitution
'Cause he's good enough for me!       And that don't sit well with me!


I won't go into no temple           I shall stay a firm agnostic
Not for Graham nor Miss Semple      I can't do a double-crostic
No, not even for a "semple"         I'm a fan of Barry Bostwick
It ain't good enough for me!        And that's good enough for me!


If you think religion's awful         Jehovah's fine transcendence         
And you've really had your craw full  And the Church's great resplendence  
Just be sure your acts are lawful     Pushing guilt and co-dependence      
Or they'll -all- be after thee!       Ain't good enough for me!            


                                                                  
We will go and worship Jesus         We give thanks to Jerry Falwell
Yes we will, when Hades freezes      If his Crusade we can't stall, well,
He is full of guilt and fleases      Ship him one-way to Rabaul - well!
Which ain't good enough for me!      that's not far enough for me!



Are you waiting for the Rapture?     Whene'er I hear Jerry Falwell
Superstition's got you captured!     Quite soon I don't feel at all well   
You believe a lot of ****, sure      Throw him down a sacrificial well
Isn't good enough for me!            That'll be good enough for me!



There are those who worship no gods      Madelyn Murray O'Hare hollers
For they think that there are low odds   Let's get God from off our dollars
That the god-seers aren't drunk sods     God is something I can't swaller
And they're good enough for me!          'Cause he's got more balls than me!



There are those that sing out "Amen!"    Are you waiting for the Rapture?
To a bastard Jewish shaman               Go on, wait, and see if I care!
You know who, so I won't name him        I'll go off and take a nap, sure
But it's good enough for me!             Isn't good enough for me!



Call Him God, or call him Allah      The very first of chiromancers
The priest will take your dollah     Overdosed on mood-enhancers
Easy living from -your- follah-      And found his palm had all the answers
-wers, but sorry, -not- from me!     Which is good enough for me!



Others followed Rev. Jim Jones        Oh the Christian sects they will clutch  
In Guyana they found their bones      At their dogmatic hate-crutch   
Kool-Aid mixed with cyanide stones!   I'm afraid that is just too much  
That ain't good enough for me!        Sects and violence for me!  



You can keep your Old Religion,       I will never be a Wiccan
It's for suckers and for pigeons!     It's for dupes and frauds and chickens
I don't buy it! Not a smidgen!        Bell and Book and Candlesticken     
I'm an atheist, you see!              Ain't good enough for me!



Let us all now worship Ayn Rand      Let us all worship Reason          
Cause she's business's big fan       Cause it never goes out of season  
With John Galt I'll make my stand    And only it makes good predictions 
And he won't shrug off me.           And that's good enough for me.     

                                   

                   ASATRU AND ODINISM: GENERAL



We will drive up to Valhalla         We will walk upon ol' Bifrost             
Riding Beetles, not Impalas          Tell ol' Heimdall that we're not lost     
Singing "Deutschland Uber Alles"     Ask Odin what the runes cost              
And that's good enough for me!       And hit Loki with a pie!             


                                  
I hear Valkyries a-comin'                We will ask a boon of Mimir           
In the air their song is comin'          With the Northern Lights a-glimmer    
They forgot the words! They're hummin'!  I would not mind being slimmer        
But they're good enough for me!          Which is good enough for me!          



Do you know what brought Balder low    We will all go worship Hoenir
His Achilles heel, mistletoe           Who has ears that hear by sonar
His systems are no longer "Go"         And a most impressive *****!
But he's good enough for me!           And that's good enough for me!


                                                                     
We will raise our cups to Bragi        Do you see the great God Tyr?     
And we'll drink until we're groggy     He's the one with that huge spear,
And the pretzels get all soggy         And with Fenrir's tooth-marks here
But that's good enough for me!         And I'm glad they're not in me.   



It was good for Thor and Odin          We will worship lovely Sif
It was good for Thor and Odin          'Cause I got Her in a GIF
Grab an axe and get your woad on!      And She looks really nif-
and it's good enough for me!           -ty and She's good enough for me!



                 ASATRU AND ODINISM: FREY / FREYA



In the halls of Frey and Freya          Give a hand to darlin' Freya        
All the priestesses will lay ya         There's no need to ask her "May ya?"
If you're good enough, they'll pay ya!  For a necklace she will lay ya!         
And that's good enough for me!          And that's good enough for me!      

 
                                                                          
                   ASATRU AND ODINISM: FRIGGA



We will go and worship Frigga         We will worship now with vigor            
And the men will be much bigga        The goddess known as Frigga               
And they won't have a hair-trigga     Tho there are some who don't dig her      
And that's good enough for me!        She is good enough for me!                


                     ASATRU AND ODINISM: LOKI


It was good enough for Loki         It was good enough for Loki             
It was good enough for Loki         Tho his tricks are sometimes hokey      
He thinks Thor's a little hokey     He likes Gumby, he likes Pokey          
And that's good enough for me!      And he's good enough for me.            


We will go and worship Loki         We will sing a verse for Loki   
He will tell a dirty jokie          He's the old Norse god of Chaos 
And get locked up in the pokey      Which is why this verse don't   
But that's good enough for me!        rhyme or scan or nothin'      
                                    But it's good enough for me... 


It was good enough for Loki         All the Gods tore into Loki     
Whose humor was okey-dokey          Saying Deicide is hokey!        
He'd laugh and take a *****         And they threw him in the pokey!
And that's good enough for me!      And that's good enough for me!  


Shall we sing in praise of Loki,         Loki found the mistletoe             
Though he left poor Midgard smokey?      And at Balder he did throw       
Oh, his sense of humor's hokey,          And it laid ol' Balder low    
But he's good enough for me!             "It's all Balder-dash!" said he!


                    ASATRU AND ODINISM: ODIN                              

 
 One-eyed Odin we will follow          If you wanna worship Odin         
And in fighting we will wallow        You don't have to have a coat on  
Till we wind up in Valhallow          Grab a sword and slap some woad on
Which is good enough for me!          And that's good enough for me!    
 

It was good enough for Odin           Odin is a mighty thinker          
Though the tremblin' got forbodin'    And he is a heavy drinker         
Then the giants finally strode in,    With the girls he likes to tinker 
But it's good enough for me!          So he's good enough for me!       


We'll all worship mighty Odin         We'll pray to All-Father Odin,
While he's busy there decodin'        In our wooden boats go floatin'
All those runes he found a floatin'   Filling Europe with forbodin'
And it's good enough for me...        And that's good enough for me.


Way up in cold Nordskogen                Odin is the God of Poets        
They all bend and scrape to Odin         Tho sometimes He doesn't show it
Cause if they don't they get snowed in   Hope my rhymin' doesn't blow it!
And that's good enough for me            'Cause He's God enough for me!  


                     ASATRU AND ODINISM: THOR


Good old Thor's the god of thunder    Shall we sing a verse for Thor,   
Really helps us get our plunder       Though he leaves the maidens sore?
Tho his head's still truly dunder     They always come back for more,    
He is good enough for me!             So he's good enough for me!       

 
                                       
We will go to Utgard Castle           It was good enough for Thor 'n'
We'll watch Thor and Elli wrassle     I can hear the thunder roarin' 
Thor will have a lot of hassle        Or maybe it's his snorin'!     
But he's god enough for me!           But it's good enough for me!   


                                                                               
Now Thor, he's armed with Mjollnir     We'll all worship Thor the Thunderer
Why choose that, I've no idear         So he doesn't make a blunder
He should oughta use a spear           When he RIPS the clouds asunder 
But a hammer's fine by me.             And it's good enough for me...



                             BAHA'I



I am into Abdul Baha                   We will honor Baha'u'llah
He's a fella that went "Aha!"          He would make a World Rulah
Then he gave a mighty hollah           That won't take away your moolah
And that's good enough for me!         And that's good enough for me!


                                        
                              BRUJA



Let us sing for Brujaria                  We will watch a Bruja giggle     
Though the blood's a lot less cleaner;    At a novice witch's wiggle
It's not Christian Santaria               For you see, a Bruja's giggle
So it's good enough for me!               Is a Brou-ha-ha to me!

 
                                                
                             BUDDHISM                                        

 
                                       
We will all go to Nirvana               Oh we all will follow Buddah           
So be sure to mind your manners         Oh we all will follow Buddah           
Make a left turn at Savannah            And we'll eat no food but Gouda        
And we'll see the Promised Land!        Which is Gouda-nuff for me!
 
                                       
It was good enough for Buddha,          We will go and sing "Hosanna"          
As a god he's kinda cute-a,             To our good ol' pal, Gautama,          
And he comes in brass or pewta'         He will never flim or flam ya',        
So he's good enough for me!             And that's good enough for me!         

                                                                               
No one wrote a verse for Buddah      We will all go to Nirvana         
Tho I think they really coulda       We will all go to Nirvana         
And I really think they shoulda      Make a left turn at Urbana         
'Cause he's good enough for me!      And you'll see the Promised Land!      


We will all follow Buddah           We will venerate the Buddah
He's one really serene dude-a       Comes in silver, brass and pewta'
But you have to beg for food-a      He ain't quite the Lion of Judah
And that's good enough for me!      But he's good enough for me!


We will sing for Yama-Dharma        Maybe I should try ol' Buddah
At our revels on the farm-a         We can share a little Gouda
Though it messes up our karma       I hope he won't think it rude-a
It's good enough for me!            Me to say he's not for me!


I am darn confused by Zen         Clap one hand if you love the Buddha
It seems way beyond my ken        It will put ya in the mood ta
Could you say it all again        Set off for Nirvana
Somewhat clearer so I'll see?     And that's good enough for me!
 
     
Let us meditate on koans,              Kill the Buddha if you meet him
both you high ones and you low'ans.    And don't even stop to greet him
One hand clapping to and fro uns.      Stomp and kick and bite and beat him
That's good enough for me!             -You're- the Buddha, don't you see?


Oh I have practiced Zen
Meditated now and then
And I'll do it all again
'Cause it's good enough for me!


                    CARGO CULT & PACIFIC ISLANDS

                                        
To the tune of Handel's "Largo"       If you get too tired           
We will hymn the gods of Cargo        And you need to get up higher    
'Til they slap on an embargo          Just have Pele light your fire!    
And that's good enough for me!        From her island in the sea!     
 
                                                                    
You can keep your saints with halos,   It was good enough for Maui
Your incense, hymns and aloes:         And for his communion chow he
Let's throw virgins in volcanos!       Served up poi and long pig - Wowee!
And that's good enough for me!         And that's good enough for me!


We will go and worship Maui          We will watch the hula dancers
With that Polynesian zowie           Topless Polynesian prancers
And he'll give us Maui Wowee!        And we'll get pagan romance, sir
And that's stoned enough for me!     And go to Easter Island, free!

   

                          CHILD BALLADS

CHORUS:  Give me those old Child ballads,
         Give me those old Child ballads,
         Give me those old Child ballads,
         They are good enough for me!
 
 We'll turn all brown and furry
 And we'll swim out to Sule Skerrie
 We're too cheap to take the ferry,
 And that's good enough for me.
 
 The fair at old Scarborough
 I'll be there on the morrow
 With no sleeves, 'tis my sorrow
 And that's good enough for me

Gimme that red wine in Dunfermline
While I'm wearing gold and ermine
Tell Pat Spence that I'm determined
And he's good enough for me

Two brothers from Bruton Town went wild
When there sister by a servant was beguiled
It may not have been good enough for Child
But it's good enough for me

Gotta love that Tom the Rhymer
(Learned it from my Aunt Jemimer)
Ain't no ballad that's sublimer
And it's good enough for me.

Dig that tale of twin corvidae!
Fun to sing and fun to read - I
Trust on this we're all agreed? Aye!
Sure is good enough for me.

                                     
                            CHRISTIAN

                                                 
We will worship with the Fundies      Say the Baptists, "We're the only
With their itchy hair-shirt undies    We're the one church that's not phony
If they don't bring "Mrs. Grundy,"    If you give us all your money 
Then it's good enough for me!         Then to Heaven you shall go! 

                                                                         
It was good for old Jehovah         Let's all listen up to Jesus           
He had a son who was a nova!        He says rich folks like old Croesus    
Hey there, Mithras! Move on ova'!   Will be damned until Hell freezes      
Another resurrection Day!           And that don't sound good to me!
 
                                                                              
Tho J.C.'s into fish, too,            Anytime that I start hearin'     
He's an avatar of Vishnu              "Jesus loves you" I start leerin'
So he is welcome here, too,           Maybe so, but not like Brian 
And that's good enough for me!        Which is good enough for me!  

                                        
We will finally pray to Jesus          Oh we'll all be Fundamental   
From our sins we hope he frees us      And be Holy Testamental       
Eternal life he guarantees us          And never Trancendental       
And that's good enough for me!         And that's good enough for me!

                                        
All the Christians pray to Jesus          And let's not forget Pelagius
Every Sunday on their kneeses             Though some call him outrageous
Then they do just what they pleases       He is pious and courageous
For the rest of every week.               And he's good enough for me!

                                                                     
Oh the Christians worship Jesus            Oh my name is Torquemada
But their sermons sure don't please us     I burn Luth'rans in Granada
It's a Sin each time ya sneezes            It's all for the Holy Fadda
That ain't good enough for me!             And it's good enough for me!


We will worship Christian Jesus          Let us worship this Jehovah    
And do just like Saint Paul pleases      All you other gods move ovah   
That we will... when Hades freezes!      Cause the One God's taking over
And that's good enough for me!           That sounds awful dull to me!  


Whether Low Church or it's High Church  And the Romans said of Jesus
Or it's Pie-Up-In-The-Sky Church        "Let's kill him, he don't please us"
Come on down and visit my Church        "But the Atheists will tease us"
'Cause it's good enough for me!         And thats good enough for me

                                        
Well you can worship Jesus              Six hundred sixty-six-o          
Go ahead and pray to Jesus              Is The Beast up to his tricks-o  
But I tell you, he don't please us      Revelations' pretty sick-o       
Just leave my Gods to me!               But it's good enough for me!     


Well I hear your god's named Jesus     Take the Blarney Stone and pitch it
You can do just as you pleases         To the nuns of St. Bridget
Even bless me if I sneezes             Tho they're pious, they're not frigit
Cause its good enough for me!          And they're good enough for me!


It was good enough for Jesus               Let us pray to the Virgin Mary 
Though Paul's doctrine doesn't please us   Let us pray to the Virgin Mary 
We prefer a faith that frees us            As our Rosary we carry 
And that's good enough for me              And she's good enough for me! 


To the Pope we will all flock      I'll pray just like the Essenes
Cause Martin Luther was a crock    And I'll eat just bread and beans
Remember Peter was the rock        For they lived within their means
And he's good enough for me.       And that's good enough for me!


                        CHRISTIAN EVANGELISTS

                                                                       
Brother Jerry is a cretin             Brother Oral's in his tower,
But with all the cash he's gettin'    Trusting in the Lord's power
Lotsa folks'll be forgettin           Getting richer by the hour,
It's the "Land of the Free!"          Now he's got the ransom fee!

                                        
Brother Robert's church is Crystal       Brother Earnest is a healer
But all the Bible that he's missed'll    And not QUITE a wheeler-dealer --
Make you "hotter than a pistol"          More a jumper and a squealer
But he's good enough for me!             So he's good enough for me!


Brother Jim and Sister Tammy       Then there's good ol' Brother Billy
Had a show that was a whammy       Bringing souls in willy-nilly.
But now they are in Miami          All his trips are kinda silly,
Tryin' t'get back on TV!           But he's good enough for me!


It's no good for Billy Graham         It's no good for Billy Graham   
It's no good for Billy Graham         'Cause he just won't give a damn
It scares Hell out of Billy Graham!   'Cause he's too much of a ham   
But it's good enough for me.          But it's good enough for me!    


That Bob Larson shrieks and hollers     Jerry Falwell thinks he's sav-ed  
Fighting demons in his callers          In a lamb's blood he's been lav-ed   
Save his program: SEND YOUR DOLLARS!    And HE thinks that I'M deprav-ed     
And that's good enough for me!          But that's good enough for me!        


It was good for Oral Roberts        The pro-lifers think they're winnin'      
It was good for Oral Roberts        And they still don't think they're sinnin'
Not so good for elves and hobbits   As they shoot down helpless women         
And it's good enough for me!        That ain't Christianity


                   CLASSICAL PAGANISM: GENERAL

                                                  
You can dance and wave the thyrsos    And to help things get real racous
And sing lots of rowdy verses         The priests of Pan and Bacchus
Till the neighbors holler curses,     Will hold a boffing contest!
And that's good enough for me!        And that's all right with me!
 
                                                                              
We will all bow to Hephaestus         Let's call on Coriolis
As a blacksmith he will test us       For all the winds that blow 'es
'Cause his balls are pure asbestos    To feel the the ra-in's sweet kiss
So he's good enough for me!           That's good enough for me!   

                                                                               
Now Danae was sweet as flowers,         There's that lusty old Priapus         
She was into golden showers;            He's just itching to unwrap us.        
And that showed her Zeus' power         (He'd do more to us than tap us        
And that's good enough for me!          And that's good enough for me!)        

                                        
It was good enough for Cupid        We remember Ariadne                      
It was good enough for Cupid        To whom Theseus was a cad, he            
His wings look kind of stupid       Split and left her feeling badly         
But that's good enough for me!      Good old Bacchus set her free!           


To Prometheus let us hark              If you plan to court Medusa      
In bringing fire, he made his mark     At her place in Syracusa         
Or we'd be dancing in the dark         Take a mirror; what's the use-a  
And that's not good enough for me!     Getting stoned before your spree?


We had better worship Neptune        If you pray unto Uranus
We had better worship Neptune        Then your crime is truly henious
If we don't we'll all be wet soon    You can stick it in your...songbook
And that's wet enough for me!        And that's good enough for me!


Let us all join with the Dryads      A most vile persisten lecher
Let us all join with the Dryads      Scorned by one, set out to catch her
Trees may not be quite the Triad     When his magic couldn't fetch her
But they're good enough for me!      Poor Atlanta turned to me!
 
                                                                   
It was good for old Achilles             We will run the Lupercalia          
Though death gave his Mom the willies    With our leather paraphenalia       
She Styx-dipped him by the heelies       Substitute for genitalia            
And that's good enough for me!           That ain't good enough for me!      

                                                                             
Let us never forget Puck              It was good for lovely Artemis      
Leads us wand'ring thru the muck      Who'd like to get to the heart of us
He don't give a flying fleabite           She's glad to be a part of us       
But he's Fool enough for me!          And she's good enough for me!       


In the temple which is Hebe's         We will worship Queen Omphale      
And constructed by the Sea-Bees       Who drove Heracles to folly        
She can cure the heebie-jeebies       For they dressed in drag, by golly!
Which is good enough for me!          I dunno if that's for me!          


We will all go worship Plutus             We will go and worship Vesta
And with riches he'll salute us           For her cooking is the best-a
All that gold would surely suit us        All the food at the fiesta
And it's good enough for me!              Which is good enough for me!

                                                                   
I'll bow down and worship Ops       Let us sing to Mother Hera,        
'Cause we think that she is tops    Papa Zeus had best beware-a,       
Turns a lotta guys into Pops        'Cause his wife's a holy terror    
And she's good enough for me!       That's good enough for me.         


Let us all sing for the Dryad       Let us run from the Bacchantes
Let us all sing for the Dryad       For they're not your maiden Aunties
For bulldozers make them may-ad     And they don't wear underpanties

We will all team up in dyads       Sweet Persephone was roaming
With the Oreads and Dryads         Through the meadows far from home 'n
Succubi and Sylphs and Naiads      Pluto grabbed her -- awful omen!
Cause we like variety!             (Though it shows he has good taste...)
 
                           
I asked questions of the Sybil
And she gave me back a riddle
And she left me in a muddle
But that's good enough for me!

Old man Ovid wrote the book on
Myths the art-historians look on
And that actors still can cook on:
"The Metamorphoses."

By that crossword muse Erato!
It was good enough for Plato,
It was good enough for Cato,
And it's good enough for me!

I read the old I-Ching
And the yarrow stalks I fling

Which is good enough for me!        And that's good enough for me!


Oh I'm following the Tao
Here and there and then and now

Wearing print-out paper tunix      Though the learning curve can be hell,
And that's good enough for me!     It's good enough for me!              


I will stick with my flat-file,     CA-Clipper can compile
Though it may be lacking style,     RDDs will make you smile
Its ease-of-use makes me smile,     (though its queries take awhile)
And that's good enough for me!      Still it's good enough for me!


Oh, 4D it is a monster              We're all aware that FoxPro
And can be slow as molasses         Runs in Windows and is not slow

But it was good enough for Guy!     It must be good enough for me!


I will write my code for PICK now       And then Pr1me bought INFORMATION
I will write my code for PICK now       So there was massive consternation
And when I'm finished I will say WOW!   What understated observation --
And that's good enough for me...        Was not good enough for me!


I use , not Lotus,    I will organize mine relationally,
Though the market-share is bogus;     So it re-indexes sensationally --
Like that famous racing tortoise,     It's only useful occassionally,
It is good enough for me!             But that's good enough for me!


I'll print data from my floppy,      I used to perl my flat-file data;
And I'll file the paper copy --      I ran on Unix, so I hadda,
It keeps my secretary happy          Now I do it 'cuz it's fasta
And that's good enough for me!       And that's good enough for me!


We will keep on writing FOCUS       You may code your CRTFORMs
Because Gerry came and woke us      They're not dash-CRTFORMs

And it's good enough for me!        They'll be good enough for me!


It was good enough for Simon Fortran,   I remember the P-Eight-Fifty
Good enough for Simon Fortran,          With 2K you've got to be thrifty
Good enough for Simon Fortran,          But the Instruction set's quite nifty
And it's good enough for me!            And it's good enough for me!


You might think that I'm a yahoo,     I am getting one of those work-
Hacking on my seven-oh-two,           Stations that are known as PERQ
But it's good enough for Big Blue,    Even though there's the odd quirk
And that's good enough for me!        It's good enough for me!


Now that wire-wrap we're routing      We're 'puter hackers who speak jargon
Very soon we'll all be booting        And may play chess with good old Sargon
Yeah Gimme that old time computing    Have ya got yer mountain boots on?
It's good enough for me!              (We'll go climbing soon, you see!)


We will write our code in COBOL       I like old Hewlett-Packard,
DB2, FORTRAN, and SNOBOL              Whose old software can be hackered 
Wanna SPICE up that old low-ball?     And their printers' been all lacquered
They're all good enough for me!       And they're good enough for me!


They revered ancient ENIAC            I will stick with DOS
And sacrificed to UNIVAC              Because Windows is a loss
Now we sing our chants on VAX pack    And I don't have to burn joss
And that's good enough for me!        Sticks to make it work, you see!


Now the Internet is wired
With the texts that we require
For our rites to be inspired -
They're on World Wide FTP!

So keep away from me!                    And she's good enough for me!


It was good for the goddess Eris     We all know the goddess Eris

If we spend Her or we save Her      And get hot under the collar
She controls all our behaviour      For their god, Almighty Dollar,
There's not enough for me!          Who is good enough for me!


Let us praise the Almighty Dollar    Oh the Dollar is the True God
Let us praise the Almighty Dollar    Not the Sun God or the Moon God
Tele-Evangelistic holler             'Cause it's my God and it's your God
And it's good enough for me!         And that's God enough for me!

                                                                 
                   DRUIDS AND FAERIE: GENERAL
 
                                                
We will worship like the Druids,     In Pwyll's hall you will be welcome
Drinking strange fermented fluids,   But he's not at home too often      
Running naked through the woo-ids,   Spends all his time in Annwyfn  
Coz that's good enough for me!       And that's good enough for me!      
  
                                      
I'll go get my golden sickle         We will worship like Zen Druids
And I'll wear it where it tickles    In their non-existant wooids
It ain't used for cuttin' pickles!   Don't try to think, just dooid!
And it's good enough for me!         And it's good enough for me!


We will bow down to Cuchulain        That old wondrous faerie, Morgan
He's got all the women droolin'      Could appreciate an organ
Tell you brother, I'm not foolin     Just as long as it was workin'
And that's good enough for me        And that's good enough for me!


Now there was this wizard, Merlin,   Oh the Welsh gods, -you- announce 'em
Really kept the world a-twirlin'     Asking my gods to renounce 'em       
'Til he got mixed up in girlin'      But our gods, I can't pronounce 'em  
But he's good enough for me!         Being tongue-tied's not for me!      


Wrap your sacrifice in wicker          We will sing a verse for Rhiannon    
It will make the flames burn quicker   Who the Celts had had a handle on    
Tho the smell makes some folks sicker  When she took their kilted men on    
It's still good enough for me!         And she's good enough for me!        
 
                                                
We will play with the Pookah           Govannon is a gas                   
It will aspect as a hookah             And His balls are made of brass     
Or a haunted pressure-cookah           He shoots light'ning from his ass  
But that's good enough for me!         And that's good enough for me!      


We will dance 'round with the Dus      We all will worship Bridget            
Tho he plays us fast and loose         'Cause She never will be frigit    
He plays jokes on me and youse         She takes giants, men and midgits  
But he's good enough for me!           And She's good enough for me!      


                DRUIDS AND FAERIE: ISAAC BONEWITS

                                                 
You don't wanna be alone with        There's this Druid who is Jewish   
That silly Isaac Bonewits            He is nice and sometimes foolish   
He's the Arch-Druid we moan with     "Oy vey! You don't -look- Druish!" 
And he's good enough for me!         "Let's define our terms," says he! 


                   DRUIDS AND FAERIE: MORRIGAN
 
                                                
If you like aggressive women         It was good enough for Morrigan         
Morrigan with tricks is brimmin'     Who will not be called a bore again   
Do you groove on S&M-in'?            For she is the Battle Raven             
Then she's just the one for you!     And it's good enough for me!


Now the Morrigan is haughty,      
And at times she's rather naughty,
But only if you're caught-y       
And that's good enough for me!    


                   DRUIDS AND FAERIE: SIDHE
 
                                                
We will party with the Sidhe      Said the Sidhe to their new war-duke    
For a hundred years or three      "You must quell Balor, that fierce gook;
And get duct-taped to a tree      "Just remember -- USE THE FORCE, LUGH!  
And that's good enough for me!    "You'll be good enough for us!"         


We will visit with the Sidhe     
And we'll drink until we're giddy
Leave behind G. Gordon Liddy     
And that's good enough for me!   


                DRUIDS AND FAERIE: THE WILD HUNT

                                                 
We'll go riding with Arawn          When the Wild Hunt fills the evening
In the dark before the dawn         With a howling and a screaming      
Wildest Hunt that we've been on!    How the Lady's eyes are gleaming    
But it's good enough for me!        And that's where I wanna be!        


When I hear the Ban-Sidhe wailing    When the Morrigu are riding
Sure it sets my heart a-quailing     And the fell Trollwives are striding
Death behind someone is trailing     I'm sure going into hiding!
And I hope it isn't me!              'Cause that battle's not for me!


                        EGYPTIAN: GENERAL


When we all bowed down to Nuit       We will pray with those Egyptians      
There was really nothin' to it       Build pyramids to put our crypts in    
(Alex Sanders made me do it...)      Cover subways with inscriptions,       
But that's good enough for me!       Which is good enough for me.....!      

                                                                               
There's the God who is a monkey     Let us worship Egyptian Min

And he makes a lousy bunkie         But New Morality is 'in!'
But he's good enough for me!        And that's good enough for me!


It was good for Mother Hequet          We'll all be Egyptian mummies
Who bought babes with lots of racket   With band-aids 'round our tummies

And it's good enough for me!           And that's good enough for me!


Thoth (or should we say Tehuti?)        We will pray with Ankh-Sen-Amen

That is good enough for me!             -Hotep's good enough for me!


We will call on Nyarlathotep           There's an Ibis-headed cutie,

Still, he's good enough for me!        That's good enough for me!

Oh you need no priests for Ammon      We will go to worship Ammon           
He looks kindly upon laymen           He will send to end a famine          
'Course he'd much rather lay women    Bagels, cream cheese and smoked salmon
And he's good enough for me!          Which is good enough for me!

And it's good enough for me...           She's sure good enough for me!
 
        
We will venerate Bubastis             We will venerate Bubastis

Let us sing the praise of Horus                                             
As our fathers did before us                                                
We're the New Egyptian Chorus                                               
And we sing in harmony!

She - that's good enough for me!     And that's good enough for me!   


Let us worship Lady Isis             Bumper stickers of all sizes    
For her virtues and her vices        At quite reasonable prices      
Of the Gods she is the nices'        They say 'ankh' if you love Isis
And that's good enough for me!       And that's good enough for me!

We will bow down to Osiris            You can read of King Osiris   
At the blooming of the Iris           And his death-by-kinship virus

We will sing a song of Ra          We will pray to Ra and Ammon

But that's good enough for me!        'Cause that's good enough for me!      
 
                                       
Let us sing to Lord Cthuhlu           We will sacrifice to Yuggoth           
Don't let Lovecraft try to fool you   We will sacrifice to Yuggoth           
Or the Elder Gods WILL rule you       Burn a candle for Yog-Soggoth          
And that's good enough for me!        And the Goat With a Thousand Young

                                                                                
Of the Old Ones, none is vaster      Well it's good enough for H*****
Even Cthulhu's not his master        He's a mighty kinky master  
I refer to the unspeakable H*****     When you pray he goes much faster 
and that's good enough for me!       And that's good enough for me! 


And for those who follow Cthulhu     Let's go worship Great Cthulhu,
We have really got a lulu:           And run naked like a Zulu,
Drop a bomb on Honolulu!             You and me and Mr. Sulu,
'Cause that's good enough for you!   And that's good enough for me! 


We will worship Great Cthulhu       We will worship Holy Cthulhu
You and me and Mr. Sulu             And we'll run around like Zulus
Howling like a drunken Zulu         Then we'll feed him Mr. Sulu,
And that's good enough for me!      And that's good enough for me!


It was good enough for Cthulhu        We will bow down to Cthulhu
Who'd eat me and who'd eat you, too;  We think he is quite a lulu
If it's good enough for Cthulhu       He's not good enough for Zulus
Then it's good enough for me          But he's good enough for me!   


We are all afraid of Cthugha           Necronomicon's still leading
Who just came in down the flue(gha)    All the others it's exceeding
I hope that caviar's beluga            But don't move your lips when reading
Or we'll all be toasty treats.         'Cause that isn't good for you


We'll bow down and worship Cthulhu    
Don't let Elder Gods' priests fool you
With the stars right he shall rule you
And you'll jibber and flop with me    


We will go out in the pasture,
And we'll try to court disaster,
As we summon mighty . . . 

*At this point several people should run up and stifle the singer to keep him from 
saying the name of the dreaded H*****, who will appear and eat him ......



                      F,G,D & H: THE FORCE


It was good for old Darth Vader      For we are the Knights of Jeddi 
It was good for old Darth Vader      And in us the Force is reddi 
He'll be back a little later         Grab your sabres, throw confetti 
And he's good enough for me!         And that's good enough for me! 


We will even worship Yoda         Let us all use the Force 
Who is small as an iota           Let us all use the Force 
But fulfills his Jedi quota       And stay on the proper course 
Which is good enough for me!      But it's good enough for me! 


If the Force makes you a hater        We will worship like the Wookie
Tall and black like ol' Darth Vader   'Cause he gets a lot of nookie
And not recalled by Ralph Nader       Thinks the DeathStar's just a cookie
Then you're good enough for me!       And that's good enough for me!    


                         F,G,D & H: GODZILLA


We'll pay homage to Godzilla              We will worship great Godzilla     
In the Oriental thrilla                   Or King Kong, that big gorilla     
He went and stomped the whole megillah    If ya don't, then they will kill ya
And he's good enough for me!              And that's good enough for me!     


                 F,G,D & H: A CANTICLE FOR LIEBOWITZ


Here's a canticle for Liebowitz              Here's a canticle for Liebowitz
That old Jew, up there he sitz.              Up in Heaven where he sitz 
There just ain't that many rhymes that fitz  Cracks his knuckles & he spitz 
But he's good enough for me!                 And he's good enough for me! 


                      F,G,D & H: MARVEL COMICS


I won't worship ol' Dormammu             Let's not worship old Galactus
To that fire-head I'll say "Damn you!"   He's more nasty than a cactus
I will worship whales named Shamu        Eating worlds takes lots of practice
Or the Chicken of the Sea!               He's too scary for me!     


                       F,G,D & H: R.A. WILSON


We've all heard of Illuminati          Robert Wilson keeps on bookin'
We've all heard of Illuminati          For his titles I keep lookin' 
Their security's kinda spotty          He always knows what's cookin'
It's a conspiracy for me!              But don't take him seriously! 


                      F,G,D & H: J.R.R. TOLKIEN


In the words of Gandalf Stormcrow    It sure suited old Yondalla,         
We find wisdom that we all know      Mother God to hobbit fallah,         
When wizards war, away we go         Whose furry toes were colored yallah,
And that's good enough for me!       And it's good enough for me!


It was good for Bilbo Baggins           We will sing of Iluvatur,          
It was good for Bilbo Baggins           Who sent the Valar 'cross the water
Treasure sometimes comes with Dragons   To lead Morgoth to the slaughter   
But it's good enough for me!            And that's just fine with me!      


                         FILKING AND OTHER BAD HABITS


B&D songs Barnstead belts out          There are songs Frank Hayes recorded
baritonically spelt out,               That are tacky, sick and sordid:
though he cannot get the welts out     Did you like them? "Yes, we all did!"
they're still good enough for me!      Then they're good enough for me!

 
If you ask him really pretty       Bill Gawne has his trusty twelve string
Tom Smith will sing a ditty        and when asked, he use'lly will sing
sometimes long or itty bitty       and we think that's quite a swell thing
and that's good enough for me.     and it sounds real good to me.

 
When Bill gets here, time we'll borrow,    Now the songs Joe Ellis MIDI's
He plays loud to drown our sorrow:         Give the guitar pickers fitties
Hear today, and Gawne tomorrow,            And they all have cows and kitties
And it's good enough for me.               'Cuz he writes them in flat keys!


Though the keys Joe Ellis chooses
For that MIDI box he uses
Might give some guitarists blueses
I will simply capo three.


                 FLYING SPAGHETTI MONSTER

Old man Darwin makes me weary,
 'Cause his books are dry and dreary,
 And besides, "It's just a theory --
 It ain't good enough for me."
 
 FSM may be a doodle,
 But a God who looks like food'll,
 Sure know how to use His Noodle:
 to make mountain, midgit, tree.


                         HINDU: GENERAL

                                                 
Just like Swami Sachenanda            We will worship Jargonatha
Just like Swami Sachenanda            But altho we risk his wrath-a
Hold your breath and throw a tantra   There won't none stand in his path-a
And you're good enough for me!        And that's good enough for me!


We'll all study the Vedanta           So you want's to be a Deva         
We'll all study the Vedanta           A real Bodhisavatta                
It's no good for sharks and mantas    A -really- Old Believe-a           
But it's good enough for me!          And that's good enough for me!     


We will go and worship Brahma       We will read the Kama Sutra       
Like a Saddhu or a Llama            The positions are quite "outre"   
Clad in less than a pyjama          But as long as you're not "neutre"
And that's good enough for me!      Then it's good enough for me!     


                      HINDU: HAIRY KRISHNAS

                                                 
We will all sing Hare Krishna        Hare Krishna gets a laugh on           
We will all sing Hare Krishna        When he sees me dressed in saffron     
It's not mentioned in the Mishna     With my hair that's only half on       
But it's good enough for me!         But that's good enough for me!         

                                                                               
I was singing Hari Rama               Hare Krishnas worship Rama
With my friend the Dalai Lama         With their tamborines and drum-as  
'Til they dumped us in the slamma     But their lifestyle is a bumm-a  
But that's good enough for me!        That ain't good enough for me!   


Hare Krishna, Hare Hare             We will all sing Hari Krishna
Hare Rama, Hare Hare                Shave our heads and hold out dish(na)
Rama Lama, Alabama                  It's not mentioned in the Mishna
And a heighdy heighdy ho!           But it's good enough for me!


If a damsel wears a sari          
Krishna's arts can make her tarry 
Some folks say that he's too hairy
But he's good enough for me!      


                         HINDU: KALI

                                                 
There are some that call it folly       We will go to worship Kali             
When we worship Mother Kali.            Though embracing her is folly          
She may not be very jolly               She'd be quite an armful, golly!       
But she's good enough for me!           And she's good enough for me!

                                                                               
As the goddess Kali dances            I will wait till four-armed Kali      
With her worshippers in trances       Drags me thru that lonesome valley    
You can learn some Hindu stances      She's disgusting act-u-all-y    
And that's good enough for me!        But She's good enough for me!    


We will sacrifice to Kali                You can sacrifice to Kali     
Tho her Thugs don't act too pally        Even if you're no Bengali     
When you meet them in an alley           Just by mugging in an alley   
She's still good enough for me!          And that's good enough for me!


Kali has her vengance brewin'            Let us take time out to dally  
Against all the evil-doin'               With the Priestesses of Kali   
It was she shot J. R. Ewing!             They need petting to get pally 
And that's good enough for me!           But they're good enough for me!


It was good enough for Kali       
Who just slew 'em down in Bali    
Though you'd never call her cuddly
Still she's good enough for me.   


                         HINDU: RAMA


We will all go worship Rama         Oh I've prayed to the God Rama    
Who created quite a drama           And done puja to his mama         
When he rescued his sweet mama      Their story's full of drama       
And that's good enough for me!      And they're good enough for me!

If you want to worship Shiva        We will go and worship Shiva
Throw some flowers in the river     While we're bathing in the river
But if Shiva will deliver           It's so cold it makes me shiver
then that's good enough for me!     And that's good enough for me!


Let us sing one verse to Shiva          We will pray to the god Shiva,
Because it made me a believer           The one with many sleeva's
When I saw Parvati's beaver --          Who destroys all disbelivas
It's good enough for me.                He's good enough for me.


Well it made me a believer            We will sacrifice to Shiva     
When I met that old man Shiva         We will sacrifice to Shiva     
And his Cannibls Sativa               If you are a True Believe-a    
It's good enough for me.              Then you're good enough for me!

So it's sex enough for me!             And that's good enough for me!

For he gave his loyal follow-          Are sure to have a gala                 
-Ers the mighty petro-dollah           Party time in old Valhalla 
And that's good enough for me!         And that's good enough for me!

Oh the Muslims worship Allah          We will guzzle RC Cola
And some obey the Ayatollah           When we join the Ayatollah
And they can't drink alcohol-a        'Cause he ain't no Holy Rollah
And that's good enough for me!        And that's good enough for me!


Well I tried to read the Koran          All this Muslim hype on Allah
Like some macho Muslim moron            Is immensely hard to swallah
But it's just too goddam borin'         I myself prefer Damballah
Not good enough for me.                 That's good enough for me.


A man of wisdom is the Sufi             Islam means 'submission'
Of the truth he has no proof, he        To the holy Allah's wishin'
Just spins 'round until he's goofy      Seven pillars of religion
He's good enough for me.                And that's good enough for me!

But that's good enough for me!           More comfortable for me!


We will observe Tu b'Shevat              We will all observe the Pesach
Its a Jewish holiday that                And try not to get Tay-Sachs
Sounds Druidic - but don't say that!     For God the waters unlocked
Or the J.A.P.s will come for me!         When He set our people free!


Old Jehovah wants your foreskin         And we'll even sing to Moses,
So Jehovah wants your foreskin?         Though his law's no bed of roses.
What good to him's one more skin?       Let him pay us what he owes us
It's good enough on me                  That's good enough for me.


I put scrolls up at my door
Like my fathers did before
You may say that it's a bore
But it's good enough for me!

When we pray in our mishpuchas,
We can sit down on our tuchas.
All the prayers begin "baruch atah
'donai eloheinu".

Jews, we rest upon the Shabbas,
go to shul, put on our tallis.
We don't work, so never call us
in for that on Saturday!

The Hebrew word for water's mayim.
When we drink we say "l'chayim".
I'll stoop to pick up a dime,
Because that's good enough for me!

Well I have a friend named Mosher.
All the food he eats is kosher.
Given ham he'll tell you "no, sir",
and that's good enough for me!

We shall all sing "Halleluja!"
It's a Hebrew word for "booya!"
When God's done a good thing to ya,
or it's on a holiday.

And She's good enough for me!       But she's good enough for me!   


We will all go worship Rimmon        Let's go for temple prostitution

And our goblets will be brimmin'     That provides a quick solution  
And that's good enough for me!       For horniness in you and me!    


Erishkigal was a vixen              It was good enough for Tiamat
But when Nergal got her mixin'      Down in Babylon where she was at
Socially, she soon was fixin'       Although her chest was kinda flat
His connubiality!                   She's still the Dragon in the Sea.


We will go and weep for Tammuz            We will bow down to the Goddess  
And we'll laugh at Springtime's promise   As She wears Her Cretan bodice

Which is good enough for me!              And that's good enough for me!

Grab your chiton - don't be tardy       it'll be a mighty party                
'Cause she's good enough for me!        and it's good enough for me!           
 
                                
We will bow down to Astarte            When we gather with Astarte           
And we'll have a great big party       It will be a lovely party             
And your welcome will be hearty        And the lovin' will be hearty

                MIDDLE EASTERN PAGAN: BAAL


We will build Baal up an altar         We will go and worship Baal
In our duty we'll not falter           For he is the Lord of All
And we'll drink our barley malt-er     In the fields and in the hall
And that's drunk enough for me!        He is good enough for me!


Oh the Phillistines abound                                            
Oh the Phillistines abound                                             
They had the biggest ***** around  (damn! That was a good pun...)

                MIDDLE EASTERN PAGAN: DAGON


We will hoist a mighty flagon         We will all bow down to Dagon   
To the honor of ol' Dagon             A conservative old pagan        
And we won't go on the wagon          He still votes for Ronald Reagan
Which is good enough for me!          And that's good enough for me!  
 
                               
                MIDDLE EASTERN PAGAN: DIMUZI


She got eager for Dimuzi               Well Dimuzi's on vacation
Said she'd meet him up by Nuzi         He'll be back when spring awakens
Now he's taking quite a snooze, he     There will be such recreation
Might revive next century!             There will be enough for me!
 
                                                
                MIDDLE EASTERN PAGAN: ENINNI


With Inanna don't try flirtin'          Let us worship sweet Eninni       
To your freedom she'll say "Curtain!"   Let us worship sweet Eninni       
'Cause she finds it most impertin-      In a skimpy string bikini         
Ent to say "She don't suit me!"         And that's good enough for me!    


                MIDDLE EASTERN PAGAN: LILLITH


We will all bow down to Lilith        I'll sing some songs to Lilith,  
'Cause she doeth what she willith     Not so young, and not so girlish,
When she willth Lilith killith        and She's always PMS-ish,        
But it's good enough for me.          but She's good enough for me!    

       
We will go to worship Lillith            Lilith wears a lacy nightie   
Grab your cup, step up and fill it       And She is a little flighty   
Tho 'ware she don't make you spill it!   She will get you all excite-y 
And that's good enough for me!           She's wet-dream enough for me!


                MIDDLE EASTERN PAGAN: MOLOCH


If you want to save your soul, ac-     I'll let Moloch light my fire
-Cording to the priests of Moloch      Of his worship I won't tire
You must sacrifice a Polack            Cheapest baby-sitter's hire....
And that's good enough for me!         And that's cheap enough for me!


We will all bow down to Moloch 
We will all bow down to Moloch 
'Cause his Pope is not a Polack
And that's good enough for me!

We will sing a song of Mithras        We will all be saved by Mithras        
Let us sing a song of Mithras         We will all be saved by Mithras        
But there is no rhyme for Mithras!    Slay the Bull and play the zithras     
Still he's good enough for me!        On that Resurrection Day!              


Oh we all will worship Mithras       I'll no longer worship Mithras       
Because he was born at Chrith-mas    He's the Bull-King with the zithras  
And he doesn't know St. Dith-mas     Cause he's easy to get pissed off    
And that's good enough for me!       And I've been gored enough for me.

We will worship Sun Myung Moonie      Oh the Moonies worship Moon
Though we know he is a goonie         (Not the Goddess but the goon)
All our money he'll have soonly       They'd eat his shit without a spoon
And that's good enough for me!        And that's not good enough for me!


Sun Moon's kids are kind of funny      We will pray to Reverend Moonie
But they stick to him like honey       All our friend will think we're loony
He just wants their souls and money    As we sing this crazy tune-y,
And it's good enough for him!          He's good enough for me.


                             MORMON (LDS)


We will worship like the Mormons         I will have a Mormon mammy
And we'll be Masonic doormen             Tho' her hands are kinda clammy
'Round the Temples we'll be swarmin'     They believe in polygammy
And that's good enough for me!           And that's wives enough for me!


Moroni's job is simple:                We'll be reachin' thru the curtain
Blowin' jazz from top the Temples      With the women we'll be flirtin'
Loud enough to pop your pimples!       Secret handshakes, we are certain
And that's good enough for me!         Will be good for you and me!


We will worship with the Mormons         We will all be Mormon-aries
'Cause they're not like Martin Bormann   Bike riding missionaries
Into gods they'll be re-bornin'          And they never talk to fairies
And that's good enough for me!           And that's good enough for me!

Some folks worship the Kachinas      Some folks pray to the Great Spirit
Some folks worship the Kachinas      Most folks just cannot get near it 
They look like "deus ex machinas"    So they hate it and they fear it   
But they're good enough for me!      But it's good enough for me!       


The Kachinas of the Hopi             We will dance unto the Sun        
Dance about and some act dopey       Pull weights stuck thru our buns  
They don't leave you feelin' mopey   Yank 'em out at a dead run        
So they're good enough for me!       And that's pain enough for me!    
 
                                                                      
I have gotten in the way-o           We will all be Contrary           
Walkin' with the Monster Slayer      Walk backwards, and we'll marry   
He is worthy of a prayer             A Sioux "winkte" (that's a fairy!)
And he's good enough for me!         And that's good enough for me!    
 
                              
Be the Great Spirit devotees         We will worship with the Sioux
On the mesa smoke peyote             Use the bushes for a loo      
'Til we think we're all Coyote       And scalp Gen'ral Custer too! 
And that's good enough for me!       And that's good enough for me!
 
                                                                     
         NATIVE AMERICAN PAGAN (CENTRAL & S. AMERICA)           


Thanks to great Quetzacoatl          Praise to Popacatapetl                
And his sacred axolotl               Just a tiny cigarette'll              
And his gift of chocolatl            Put him in terrific fettle            
And please pass some down to me!     So he's good enough for me!           

                                        
Now watch out for the Maya's,     Montezuma liked to start out 
They might really try to fry ya,  Rites by carrying a part out 
Sacrifice people, not papaya's,   That would really tear your heart out,
Just as long as its not me!       But it's good enough for me!  

                                        
Quetzacoatl's flyin'                  And when old Quetzacoatl     
With the Toltec and the Mayan         Found a virgin he could throttle     
And the mushrooms he's been buyin'    And put her heart into a bottle     
Are good enough for me!               It was good enough for me.     

                                        
We will worship Xochipilli          We will worship Xipe-Totec
Though it might be a bit silly      Tho it is a little low-tech
Running naked makes me chilly       It is not a bit ero-tek (erotic)
But it's good enough for me!        But it's good enough for me!

                                        
Oh, there's none like Huizlipochtli   When the blood it was a-surgin'    
For destroyin' people tot'ly          Aztec priests wore skins of virgins
Best to worship -him- remotely!       Cause they had transvestite urgins 
But he's good enough for me!          That ain't good enough for me!     
 
                                                                        
We'll do dances to bring water     We will worship like the Incas        
Prepare animals for slaughter      Who were great heroic drinkas           
Sacrifice our sons and daughters   Tho the Spanish called them stinkas    
And it's good enough for me.       Still it's good enough for me!        


Come and worship Huehueteotl      Let us sacrifice to Chac Mol
Sit around and chew peyotl        For rain just burn some copal
What a way to get totalled!       Hey! There's a flood out in the hall!
And it's good enough for me!      And it's wet enough for me!


Let us praise Quetzalcoatl,                 We will go to worship Inti      
When he landed near Seattle,                Soon around us we will all see  
Blessed the crops, but spooked the cattle,  Cocaine being snorted freely    
But that's good enough for me.              And that's stoned enough for me!


I've worshipped Quetzalcoatl
All the prisoners I did throttle
Threw their hearts into a bottle
It was good enough for me!

Oh, our Spirits will awaken             Well I'm tired of Ronald Reagan,       
Oh, our Spirits will awaken             He's too square to be a pagan,         
Watch the Universe a-quakin'            Let's all vote for Carl Sagan!         
Which is Gurdijeff to me!               He's good enough for me!
 
                                                                              
Timmy Leary we will sing to            I'll arise at early mornin'
And the things that he was into        When the Sun gives me the warnin'
(Well, at least it wasn't Shinto)      That the Solar Age is dawnin'
And that's good enough for me!         And that's good enough for me!

                                                               
In the sky I hear a hummin'              Just like Carlos Castenada  
It's the UFO's a-comin'                  Just like Carlos Castenada
That's not banjos that they're strummin  It'll get you sooner or later
But it's good enough for me!             And that's good enough for me!


We've said all we need on Sagan;     We will pray for New Age Aquarians,    
Let's move on to things more pagan   And hang out in Planetariums,    
Like the politics of Dagon,          Lottuv 'em are Unitarians,    
For it's been enough for me!         They're good enough for me.    


If you follow Numerology                      Come and be my New Age honey
You must believe the truth will setcha free   You can channel fuzzy bunnies
Take some numbers that appeal to thee         And we'll make a lot of money
And then multiply by three                    And that's good enough for me!

Oh, the Commies went kablooie          I'm admirin' Boris Yeltsin           
Russia's government did a U-ie         Makes the Russkies pull their belt in
And the hardliners said "phooie!"      Until they get some gelt in          
But it's good enough for me!           And that's good enough for me!       

  
No more bombs and big explosions       We think the New World Order     
Here's to peace across the ocean       Is a fire and a sword-er         
Even tho it's still slow-motion        And it seems to rhyme with Mordor
It is good enough for me!              And that ain't too good for me!  


                     NORTHERN EUROPEAN (GENERAL)


We will praise the god Toutatis        I was there when Lemminkainen
When the Pagan frenzy's got us         Crazed the winin' and the dinin'
Till we strain our epiglottis          And left poor old Louhi whinin'
And that's good enough for me!         Which was quite a sight to see!


We will go and worship Veles             There's the Russian god Yarilo
All us Pagan gals and fellows            As a love-god he's a thrill-o
And we'll Czech out what he'll sell us   When he comes there is no chill-o    
And that's good enough for me!           And he sounds a lot like me!


We will bow down to Perkunas            I remember Vainomoinen
And we'll chant old Baltic 'runos'      Chasing Winter on that mornin'
Save the dolphins and the tunas         As the Spring came finally dawnin'
And that's good enough for me!          And that was good enough for me!


Then there's ol' Koschai the Deathless    Baba Yaga's quite a witchy
He will leave you a bit breathless        Tho sometimes she's a bit bitchy
Face up to him with steadfastness         And her chicken feet are itchy
And it's good enough for me!              And she's good enough for me!

Et vienon d'Atlantide.                   Mit Waldnymphen, sehr blo"sish!
Mais c'est bon assez pour moi            Es ist fu"r mir gut genug!

Nous allons adorer Horus
Avec tous ces vieux papyrus
On va attraper des virus
Mais moi ça me suffit ! 

REFRAIN
Je veux ma bonne vieille religion (ter)
Car moi elle me suffit !

J'ai prié la puissante Isis
Pour une douleur au coccyx
Du coup j'ai une satyriasis
Et moi ça me suffit !

On a chanté Hare Rama
Avec mon pote le Dalaï Lama
Et dix calvas dans l'estomac
Et moi ça me suffit !

Je crois que les martyrs d'Allah
Se retrouv'ront au Walhalla
Ca fera un fameux gala
Mais moi ça me suffit !

Mon vieux copain Gautama 
Mérite qu'on lui chante "Hosanna"
En enfer il nous jettera pas
Et moi ça me suffit !

J'ai appris par cœur le Coran
C'est pas du tout déshonorant
Pour le reste je suis ignorant
Car moi ça me suffit !

Asmodeus will excite us                There are folks who get their hate in
To an orgy he'll invite us             They go out and pray to Satan
He may have his High Priest bite us    On TV this gets a ratin'
But that's good enough for me!         And Geraldo says "Oh, GEE!"


I would go and worship Satan            I will kill an old black rooster
If I could memorize verbatim            Show that I'm a Satan booster
'Cause with him there ain't no fakin'   He's not drawing like he uster
And that kinda frightens me!            But he's good enough for me!


We will all go to the Black Mass       We will follow Satanism
And kiss the goat on his ass          And use a disgusting chrysm
Tho you think it hasn't much class     Made of blood and old stale jism
Still it's good enough for me!         And that's pretty gross for me!


It was good enough for Satan          Then there's Michael Aquino       
Whom the Christians are all hatin'    Thinks that Set is really keen-o
But the Beast they are awaitin'       (Satan moved to Argentine-o
And that's good enough for me         After World War Two, you see....)


                   SHE BLINDED ME WITH SCIENCE


Armageddon was the object          Let's have one verse that's Carl Sagan's
Of the Manhattan Project.          He's seen Earthmen, Martians, Vegans       
It was good for ol' Enrico         But he's yet to meet us Pagans       
And it's good enough Fermi!        And that's good enough for me       


Well, gather me up in a basket        We give thanks to Gregor Mendel
Then find me a lead-lined casket      Pea plant's alleles he did bend-el
Three Mile Island blew a gasket       Now we breed men just like Grendel
And that's all that's left of me!     And that's good enough for me!


There are those who worship science      The wacky ol' inventor
And some would send 'em to the lions     With his brain a bit off-centre
Without 'em we'd have no appliance       Whomped up A-bombs for adventure
So they're good enough for me            And that's good enough for me


But the True Religion's Science        God gave no short solution   
Where we place our great reliance      To Mathematics's confusion   
'Cause it's laws don't take defiance   He put in self-recursion     
So it's good enough for me!            And that's Godel nuff for me.


                           SCIENTOLOGY                   

                                                 
L. Ron Hubbard liked precision            In matters Dianetic        
And he founded a religion                 You need not get frenetic        
That has caught a lot of pigeons          Make your Engrams copacetic        
And it's good enough for me!              And that's good enough for me! 

                                          
Glory, glory, halleluja                   Dianetics is copyrighted
Glory, glory, what's it to ya?            And they get all excited
L. Ron Hubbard made the moolah            Of critique they are affrighted
And that's good enough for me!            That's not good enough for me!

   
                     JUST PLAIN GRATITUOUS SEX

I got a new diversion                Gimme that real old-time religion
It's a new kind of perversion!       Where sex ain't doled out in smidgens
I gotta ask: Are you a virgin?       And we don't sacrifice no pigeons 
'Cause that's good enough for me!    It's good enough for me 


You are very, very pretty            Let's forget those moral urges
As you sing this little ditty        Get your spurs and chains and scourges
I like little ditties....            And accentuate your urges
And I like big ditties too...!!!     So come and play with me!


At the Festival of Milcom           In the sun we will run naked 
Let the women on the Pill come      And get broiled and fried and bake-ed 
And then everybody will come!       It might be a mistake-ed 
And that's good enough for me!      But it's good enough for me! 
  
                                   
We will all go mess with sheep             Ancient British music is such
'Cause they're silent, and they're cheap   Put the BBC well in dutch
And upon them we will leap                 Just because that it was too much
And that's ba-a-a-ad enough for me!        Saxon violins for TV!

                                               
                              SHINTO                                 
 
                                               
There are some who practice Shinto     I don't really go for Shinto     
There are some who practice Shinto     It's just something I'm not into 
There's no telling what WE'RE into!    Tho I guess I could begin to  
but that's good enough for me!         'Cause it's good enough for me! 


In Japan they thought it neato      Well the Japanese use Shinto
When they worshipped Hirohito       There's no telling what they're into
But that didn't sit with SEATO      It helps them outsell the Pinto
So it never more will be!           And that's good enough for me!    


Ameratsu brought the light in           We will venerate the Kami
And love's bonds began to tighten       Tho they don't wear no pyjommies
The whole world began to brighten       And they ain't got any Mommies
And that's good enough for me!          But they're good enough for me!

        
If you come to practice Shinto
Make sure you know what they are into
You must praise each rock and lean-to
But they're good enough for me!


                 THE SOCIETY FOR CREATIVE ANACHRONISM


In the SCA the Kings they oughter      We will all go be nice SCAdians  
Eschew their royal hauteur             And get nice and truly laid - ian
'Cause they cannot walk on water       Not a lot of them are maid-i-ens 
And that's good enough for me!         And that's good enough for me!


We will have no mullets voided     Where's the gong gone? I can't find it
Within annulets conjoin-ed         I think Northwoods is behind it!      
If it's good enough for Ioseph     For they've always been cymbal-minded 
Then it's good enough for me!      And they're good enough for me!       


At Pennsic there's the Dark Horde
Better hope that they don't get bored
You can spot 'em by their Horde Cord
And they're good enough for me!


                    THE CHURCH OF THE SUB-GENIUS


Say hosannas to "Bob" Dobbs        Now there's a smokin' dude named Bob 
With space aliens he hobnobs       If you're not green then you're a slob
He's the patron saint of slobs     And all the pink are left to sob
And that's good enough for me!     When the ufos come to be!


Bob your pockets would have cleanest    Gimme slack and gimme more slack
If you pay him (I'm not mean(us))       And more and more and more slack
You'd have to be a "subgenius"          I got a trunkful out back!
But he's good enough for me.            And it's not enough for me!


                           THELEMA  
 
                                          
Uncle Crowley was a dreamer      When the clouds they are a-rumbling    
At the Abbey of Thelemer         And the thunder is a-grumbling         
But his magic is a screamer,     Then it's Crowley that you're mumbling 
So it's good enough for me!      And it's good enough for me!        

                                           
There are those who follow Crowley     Let us call an Elemental       
Tho the stuff that he held holy        For a temporary rental            
Turn your your brain to guacamole      Just as long as it is gentle     
But he's good enough for me!           It is good enough for me!      

                                                                               
It was good enough for Crowley        The Thelemites worship Crowley  
With his sacraments unholy            While he's roasting very slowly  
Who smoked pot and ate some moly      'Cause they think he's so damn holy 
And it's good enough for me!          He don't do a thing for me! 


It's no good for Jerry Falwell          Magick's language is so queer
And he don't think we're at all well    Causes Crowley to appear
But the Great Rite's when we shag well  And to stick it in your ... ear!
And that's good enough for me!          That's not good enough for me!

                             
Let us not forget St. Crowley        There are those who worship Crowley
For he's humble, meek and holy       'Cause they say he rhymes with "holy"
Kind and jolly, roly-poly,           What I say is "Holy Moley!"
And that's good enough for me!       "Perfect love, and ninety-three!"


When the wind is turnin' howly          Ninety-three and forty-leven
And the thunder's gettin' growly        Sixty-nine and eighty-seven
Then you know you're workin' Crowley    Crowley won't get you to Heaven
And he's good enough for me!            Ain't no good for you and me!


                             TRICKSTER
 
          
We will praise the wily Trickster    We will howl with ol' Coyote
Who of talents is a mixture          Pee on bushes, eat peyote
And is famous as a prixster         Then we'll roast ol' Mendes' Goatie
And that's good enough for me!       And that's wild enough for me!


Let us praise the Holy Fool          Of Great Murphy much is spoken 
For He's breaking all the rules      For His Law shall not be broken
Holds you up to ridicule,            It's not pretty when He's woken
And that's good enough for me!       Things go wrong for you and me!


If your god of choice is Squat       If your rising sign is Aries   
Well then trendy, man, you're not!   You'll be taken by the Fairies 
But you'll get a parking spot!       Meet the Buddah in Benares     
And that's good enough for me!       where he'll hit you with a pie!


                             VOODOO                                      

                                           
There are people into voodoo           There are people into Voodoo  
Africa has raised a hoodoo             With a mojo and a hoodoo      
Just one little doll will do you       I know I do, I hope you do!   
And it's good enough for me!           And it's good enough for me! 

                                                                               
If you're really into dancing        We will all go worship Shango      
And you wanna try some trancing      Who will make the thunder bang-o      
Then the Voodoo gods are prancing    End the drought down in Durango      
And that's good enough for me!       Which is good enough for me!      


There are those who practise Voodoo,  Do we do a voodoo hoodoo?
You know I do, I know you do,         He do, she do, I do, you do!
And between us we know who do,        Stickin' pins in voodoo doodoo
And that's good enough for me.        Doo wah diddy just for me!


When Erzuli takes the floor-o         Baron Samedi is dancin'
Her seductiveness scores Four-Oh      With a little necromancin'
If she'll fool around some more-o     He's not good at smooth romancin'
Then that's better still for me!      But he's good enough for me!


              THE WACO DEBACLE AND HOMEGROWN STUPIDS


It was down in Waco, Texas            We will all go down to Waco      
When they came to arrest us           Learn religion from that flako   
We needed britches of asbestos        Then be broiled to use for tacos-
That was hot enough for me!           That's not good enough for me!   


Janet Reno said "I think,"               ATF must be approvin'
"Those folks in Waco stink!"             Your religion's happy groovin'
Her ATF's a little hink-                 While the media is soothin'
-y; smells like purest bull to me!       Us in happy apathy ....!


In Oklahoma, t'was a sin in             Randy Weaver he got busted
Killing children, dogs and women,       Because in God he trusted
The militia boys are grinnin' ....      FBI can't cut the mustard
Smells like "terrorist" to me!          Better keep your powder dry!

To David Koresh I will pray, so
He will tell me that I may go
To a barbecue in Waco,
And that's good enough for me.


               WICCA AND GENERAL NEO-PAGAN (SERIOUS)


WICCAN CHORUS: Gimme that real old time religion
               Gimme that real old time religion
               Don't gimme no new affliction
               It's good enough for me...

                                           
Well, she raised an awful flurry      When old Gerald got it goin'      
When she made the scholars worry      When old Gerald got it goin'     
Thank the Gods for Margaret Murray!   All that hidin' turned to showin'
She is good enough for me!            And that's good enough for me!  


Meeting at the Witching Hour         Let us worship mighty Gaea          
By the Bud, and Branch and Flower    Listen to what she has to say-a     
Folks are raising up the Power       She'll say, "take your trash away-a"
And that's where I want to be!       And that's good enough for me!      


We are Children of the Goddess           After converts we're not chasing 
And the Horned One begot us              And their money we're not fleecing 
And with love the Craft they taught us   Still our numbers are increasing 
And that's good enough for me!           And that's good enough for me! 


We are children of the Wicca          In the face of Inquisition
And although we may bicker            We maintained an Opposition
Our loving is much quicker            And preserved the Old Tradition
And that's good enough for me!        And that's good enough for me!


When the blizzard is a-whirling     We survived the conflagration
And the Yule log is a-burning       And emerged with jubilation
And the Sun God is returning        In a new reincarnation
It is good enough for me!           And that's good enough for me!


When the ice is a-breaking          Now the candles are a-gleaming
And the buds are a-taking           And the Cauldron is a-steaming
And the Lady is a-waking            And the full Moon is a-beaming
It's good enough for me!            And that's good enough for me!


On the evening of the May           Come and join the celebration
Round the fires buring gay          Pour the Goddess a libation
Witches dance the night away        You don't need initiation
And that's good enough for me!      And that's good enough for me!


When the Sun is a-going                When the souls of the departed
And the crops have finished growing    Come to join us, cheerful-hearted
and we reap the fruits of sowing       We know in death we are not parted
It's good enough for me!               And that's good enough for me!


When the day meets the night          When Midsummer fires burn      
In equal dark and equal light         Ere the Sun begins to turn     
God and Goddess shall unite           Comes the flowering of the fern
And that's good enough for me!        And that's good enough for me  


When the night meets the day                Let's all hug our Earthy Mother  
When leaves turn brown and skies turn grey  There is nothin' that I'd druther
And the Sun is going away                   She's better then any other      
That is good enough for me!                 And She's good enough for me!    


Those Evangelists all say              For the Wintertide preparing   
They possess the one true way          Harvest baskets we are bearing 
I'll take Wicca any day                Goddess bounty we are sharing  
And that's good enough for me!         When the night and day are one!


We will worship in the Northwest     The God of Man entices
Where the water is our fortress      Paganism our life spices
Where the Lord and Lady know best    So just 'ankh' if you love Isis
And that's good enough for me!       And that's good enough for me!


It was good enough for Grannie       As the waning year is ending
It was good enough for Grannie       Young and old souls now are blending
It was good enough for Grannie       Voices round the Circle sending
And she taught it all to me!         Samhain joy across the worlds!


Through the endless night we shiver   Pagans gather in the clearing
Flames around the Yule log quiver     For the end of Winter's nearing
As we sing to praise the Giver        And the Maiden is appearing
Of the Sun on Solistice morn!         Bringing promises of Spring!


Light and darkness stand together     Hand in hand we leap the fire
Leafing birch and flow'ring heather   To the meadows we retire
Brethren clad in fur and feather      To fulfill Beltane desire
Tell us Spring has come again         And give seed unto the land!


While the Solistice Day is fleeting   Joy and fruitfulness abound
Bull and Stag again are meeting       On Lammas Eve, the fertile ground
For the honor of repeating            Reveals the gift of Love that's found
Vows that bind them to the Queen!     When the Horned One dies once more!


Some are self-initiated               To the Goddess lift our glasses      
Tending to be addle-pated             And let's all get off our asses      
If their rituals are X-rated          Teach those Pagans, hold them classes
That ain't Wicca, don't you see!      And that's good enough for me!       


It was good enough for Margot         Burn Damiana for a lover
It was good enough for Margot         And burn Rowan to the Mother
And her book I could not forego       Cense will show many another
And it's good enough for me!          Clear the smoke! I cannot see!


All the apple trees wassail        It was good for Beltane fires
As we heft the flowing pail        Put out by lying friars
A good cider mixed with ale        It was good for Beltane fires
And that's good enough for me!     And it's good for you and me!


We're all children of the Goddess    Give thanks to the Earth our Mother
We're all children of the Goddess    Give thanks to the Earth our Mother
She always fed and shod us           She'll care for us like no other   
She is good to you and me!           And she's good enough for me!      


If the HP wants some lovin'            This old Cosmos needs the Grace in
As an entrance to his Coven            God and Goddess for creation
Shout it to the Gods above             Take them both in combination
That that's not Wicca, don't ya see!   And you have the true T'ai Ch'i!


We have lots of fun at Samhain,     Let's all hug our earthy mother
Everyone has fun at Samhain         There is nothing that I'd druther
Except perhaps a cowan              She's better than any other
But that's okay by me.              And that's good enough for me


We will all worship the Mother      We will go into the forest          
Not the womb of any other           There'll be songs and dancing for us
Virgin, Crone and Mother            We will all join in the chorus      
She's good enough for me            And that's good enough for me!      


I will keep the Maypole rites         I will keep the Yule
Coupling in the fields all night      For to bring the year's renewal
Just to keep the crops from blight    Keep the kiddies home from school
And that's good enough for me!        And that's good enough for me


            WICCA AND GENERAL NEO-PAGAN (NOT SERIOUS)


It was good enough for Granny           It's not good enough for Reagan   
She could throw a double-whammy         It's not good enough for Reagan         
That would knock you on your fanny      He's too square to be a Pagan!          
And she's good enough for me!           And that's good enough for me!          
  
                                                                  
With the aid of my athame           Let's go skyclad all together      
I can throw a "double-whammy"       Dance the Circle round the heather  
(And can slice and dice salami!)    Never mind the freezing weather    
So it's good enough for me!         And that's good enough for me!     

                                        
There will be a lot of lovin'       We will worship with the witches            
When we're meetin in our Coven      'Cause we're rowdy sons-of-bitches          
Quit yer pushin and yer shovin'     And they scratch us where it itches         
So there's room enough for me!      And that's good enough for me!              

                                           
Well the Christians all are humming     We will gather at our saunas            
Cause they say their God is coming,     When the spirit comes upon us           
Our God came three times this evening   To perform the Rites of Faunus          
And that's good enough for me!          And that's good enough for me!          

                                            
Some folks worship all of Nature            Perfect love and perfect trust
Tho they love to taunt and bait-cher        We shall rise up from the dust
They're just funnin', they don't hate-cher  And become the upper crust
And they're good enough for me!             And that's good enough for me!  


Our High Priestess is a doll       When the red-necks say we're sinning
But she's fond of alcohol          I don't care, 'cause we are winning
Carlo Rossi she'll extoll          And this is only the beginning
But she's good enough for me!      And that's good enough for me!


Our Coven is a bunch                  Our High Priest thinks he's Conan
But I have a sneaking hunch           But he cannot keep a bone-on
That their brains are out-to-lunch    He resorts to the Rite of Onan
But they're good enough for me!       But he's good enough for me!


Our Maiden is a virgin                Our Maiden is a virgin
But her big toes keep divergin'       But her buttocks keep divergin'

And that's good enough for me!        And that's good enough for me!


Our Summoner thinks he's lusty      Our Witch-Queen has a tushie
But his balls are gettin' dusty     Which is big and wide and plushy

But he's good enough for me!        What e're the carpentry!


Our Coven has a charter              Our First-Degree has curves
They recieved from some old farter   That give all men the swerves

But it's good enough for me!         But she's good enough for me!


Our Healer shaves her thing          Our Neophyte's a fool
Once a month we see the string       But he's got a ten-inch tool
Back and forth it tends to swing     He'll have Third Degree by Yule
But she's good enough for me!        If all the girls agree!


Our Familiar is black                 Always be polite to witches       
With a white stripe down his back     Always be polite to witches       
When his tail goes up, make tracks,   If you cross them they are bitches
'Cause it ain't perfumery!            And they throw some nasty spells! 


When the full Moon's in the sky     Up the chimney, down the street
And the witching hour is nigh       Flying at ten thousand feet

And that's very good for me!        And it's good enough for me!


Our Bard is macrophonic            Our chalice holds six quart
And he thinks he's so harmonic     And our wine -- it sure ain't port!
But he's more like cacophonic      It's distilled in a retort
And he plays a mile off-key!       But it'sh good enough f'me!


Our Book-Of-Shads is old               Our rituals are diverse
Every page inch-deep in mold           Every week a different curse
'Cause the store where they are sold   Goddess! What if they reverse?
Got flooded by the sea!                It won't be good enough for me!


Bakersfield has Minstrel Puck         We were told in Pagan class
Who with verses shows much pluck      That leaping cauldrons is a gas

But he's good enough for me!          And I can't sit down for tea!
 
                                                                   
Outdoor skyclad is for wierdos      Gavin Ice took out his phallus
Who forget about mosquitoes         And he stuck it in the Chalice
And they zap you like torpedos      Please don't pee, Gav, out of malice
That ain't good enough for me!      That ain't good enough for me! 


I inherited from Mommy               When a witch says "wackawacka"

And it's ba-a-a-d enough for me!     And that's good enough for me!


It was Gerald wrote the ditty        When I first became a pagan

We will follow Gerald Gardner        We go skyclad for the Goddess

It was good enough for Brigid          It was good for Gerald Gardner
Oh, she surely isn't frigid            Scourging is a penis hardener
She sure keeps Jack's pecker rigid     Then you do it to your partner
And that's good enough for me          And that's good enough for me


It's those good old connotations      I'm full mooning evil spirits
Which make grow the Pagan nations     Throwing wild derriere fits
Leading us to conjugations            And on me they can't lay their mitts
And that's good enough for me!        'Cause my charm's protecting me!

It was good enough for Tim Zell             We will jump the old bonfire

Oh they say its knife and chalice     They say that Wicca makes you fertile

Oh my grandpa prays to Suna          Oh my neighbor is a Buddhist

But that's good enough for me        But that's good enough for me

And the Goddess at least three!      And feathered, but don't mention me!

    ----------------------------------------------------------------
                  880 verses: Last update 03/05/06
(yes, we have over 1000 verses on file now. I'll get them up
as soon as I can)
    ----------------------------------------------------------------

      The first full edition was released on 1 May, 1993 as REALOTR1.TXT, 
    and all subsequent updates are numbered sequentially. It includes 
    _ANAKREON_ numbers #6, #8, #10, and #12, plus Joe Bethancourt's
    collection as it existed at the time.


    This is the current update, for the homepage. It contains all of 
    REALOTR1.TXT (the original computer file collection), REALOTR2.TXT 
    thru REALOTR6.TXT plus a lot of new verses. The new verses are not 
    always tacked onto the end of the old ones, due to format consider-
    ations, so ya gotta look a little bit for some of 'em. Sorry 'bout 
    that! Note also that the table of contents has been expanded from 
    previous editions. Note also also that we're always looking for new 
    verses! Note also also also that there are variants of many of these 
    verses floating around. We've used the best (IMHO) for this 
    collection.
