Track Name: Pagan Baby
"Pagan Baby"
by Cernowain Greenman © 2011

1. I didn't meet her up on Blueberry Hill
I didn't meet her up on Blueberry Hill
I didn't meet her at the Top Hat Bar and Grill

(Ch): I met my Pagan Baby surfin' the Internet (Pagan baby, oh, Pagan baby)
I met my Pagan Baby surfin' the Internet (Pagan baby, oh, Pagan baby)
That's how we oh, so, magickly met

2. She's got a lap top, she's got super VGA
She's got a lap top, she's got super VGA
She sends her love spell in my email everyday

3. Her Book of Shadows, oh man, it's on her hard drive
My witchy baby, o man, she's got a hard drive—you know what I mean!
When she IM’s, O Goddess, do I feel alive! (Ch)

4. Oh, she'll go private, my baby, she love to hotchat (hot chat, hot chat)
Oh, she'll go private, my baby, she love to hotchat (hot chat, hot chat)
And I wish I could-- tell you more about that (ooo!) (Ch)

(TAG):
That's how we oh, so magickly
That's how we oh so mystically
That's how we oh, so merrily met!
Track Name: The Greenman of the Forest
"The Greenman of the Forest"
by Cernowain Greenman © 2011

1.As wintertime becomes the spring
And the snow melts into the ground
When the day is growing longer
Mister Greenman comes around
He causes the trees to leaf
And he makes the vine grow long
He rises up to give new life
As he sings his happy song:


CH: I am the Greenman! I am the Greenman!
I am the Greenman, young and robust.
I am the Greenman! I am the Greenman!
I am the Greenman of the Forest!


2. Leaping, jumping, happy bumping
The rabbits hear his tune
Birds and snakes and foxes mate
The flowers are in bloom
With the Greenman by his side
Our Mother Earth comes alive
Their happy magick fills the air
Joyful love is everywhere (CH)


3. You can hear his laughter
As the south wind starts a-whirlin’
Back behind the sacred oak
Where the druids are now circlin’
Deep in the underbrush
Where the chipmunks love to roam
Come with me and we’ll play all day
In the Greenman’s happy home (CH)

Track Name: Lady Beth
"Lady Beth"
by Cernowain Greenman © 2011

1. She's the fullness of womanhood walking in grace
and I never knew magic till I saw her face
to the depths of her beauty I'll always chase
for her love

CH: Well, I've been to Glasgow
and to Inverness
And I've lived for the good times
but I treasure each breath
and I've found nothing sweeter,
sweeter than my Lady Beth

2. I met her on a Friday when the moon was full
And we danced all night like they do in Donegal
Her first kiss was so gentle that it reached down
deep in my soul. (CH)

3. I found that my heart has traveled so far
and my searching has brought me
back where you are
for there's nothing brighter
than the bright shining star
of your love. (CH 2x)

Track Name: Magick Planet
Magick Planet
by Cernowain Greenman © 2011

1. Ol’ Gerry cracked the whip and he revealed the way
And young man Alex was king for a day
Now the moon shines bright and we are on our way
The news ran it, they tried to ban it, the news ran it
Then Dafo decided she would leave the scene
And the Goddess got a charge out of Lady Doreen
because she didn’t find Mr. Crowley so keen
The news ran it, they tried to ban it, the news ran it
It’s a Magick Planet

2. So across the pond Uncle Bucky flew
And Gwen took the Rede and made Pagan stew
Then later we were charmed by witches on the tube
The news ran it, the sellers canned it, the news ran it
Then Starhawk led a spiral dance and we had fun
And Zsusanna started women’s coven number one
But eclectics then reclaimed the Craft for everyone
The news ran it, the critics panned it, the news ran it
It’s a Magick Planet

3. Scott and Silver made it simple as “1, 2, 3”
Margot and Ronald wrote the history
Now we know where we’ve been,
What do you wanna be?
The news ran it, they tried to ban it, the news ran it
Selena and Sybil, Monique and Pat
helped to get us all to where we’re at
And Laurie Cabot still is wearing basic black
The news ran it, they tried to ban it, the news ran it
It’s a Magick Planet

Bridge: They thought the “old religion”
wasn’t gonna last such a long time
But it’s new with every spell that’s cast
It lives on… in your mind

4. Marion led us through the mists of Avalon
And burnin’ Charlie gave us a marching song
And Pagan Pride showed us how to stand up strong
The news ran it, they tried to ban it, the news ran it
Old Gerry cracked the whip and revealed the way
And young man Alex was king for a day
Now the future shines bright
And we are here to stay
The news ran it, they tried to ban it,
Do you understand it?
It’s a Magick Planet.
Magick Planet.
Magick Planet.

Track Name: Wheel of Change
"Wheel of Change"
by Cernowain Greenman © 2011

1. I know your dreams keep fading fast
Trying hard to find your path
Living on the Silver Wheel
We keep playing "Lost and Found"
But one day I promise-- you will see
That all we have to do is be
Cause if you ever go astray
The wheel’ll turn you back around. (Ch)

(Ch) I've found my destiny (oo..oo)
It's no planned strategy (oo..oo)
Simply following the Wheel of Change
that keeps spinning round and round
‘Round and around we go...
‘Round and around we go...

2. Now I'm laying out my tarot cards
And gazing up at the wandering stars
There's no single point that's fixed
In this universe we can’t define
So, I'm learning not to hold too tight
To the things that change overnight
And live within the constant flow
And try to keep an open mind

Bridge: Wheel of Change
Spinning ‘round and ‘round
We live and learn on the shifting ground
Wheel of Change spins us far apart
We live and love, and once again we start
Wheel of Change
Wheel of Change

(Ch)

TAG: ‘Round and around we go...

Track Name: Gentle Arms of Eden
"Gentle Arms of Eden"

“Gentle Arms of Eden” © Dave Carter/David Robert Carter (BMI), admin. By Tracy Grammer Music.


1. On a sleepy endless ocean when the world lay in a dream
There was rhythm in the splash and roll, but not a voice to sing
So the moon fell on the breakers and the morning warmed the waves
Till a single cell did jump and hum for joy as though to say

CH: This is my home, this is my only home
This is the only sacred ground that I have ever known
And should I stray (should I stray)
In the dark night alone
Rock me Goddess in the gentle arms of Eden

2. Then the day shone bright and rounder ‘til the one turned into two
And the two into ten thousand things, and old things into new
And on some virgin beach head one lonesome critter crawled
And she looked about and shouted out in her most astonished drawl (CH)

3. Then all the sky was buzzin’ and the ground was carpet green
And the wary children of the wood went dancin’ in between
And the people sang rejoicing when the fields were glad with grain
This song of celebration from their city on the plain (CH)

4. Now there's smoke across the harbor, and there's factories on the shore
And the world is ill with greed and will and enterprise of war
But I will lay my burden in the cradle of your grace
And the shining beaches of your love and the sea of your embrace (CH)


.
Track Name: Her Chalice Pours
Her Chalice Pours
by Cernowain Greenman © 2011


Ch: She’s dancing around
a raven sounds
the full moon calls
who could turn love down?
A circling floor,
the spinning doors
A dark blade falls
and Her chalice pours

1. Drawing down on the moon
Feel Her fire and ice
The flame is so hot
Her caress so nice
Outside its cold
Inside its burning
I hold fast the light
But the Wheel keeps turning. (Ch)

2. Letting go of the night
It’s so hard to see
The Wheel always turns
And the Quarters leave
How can I go
When You’re shining?
I’m dancing away
But She always finds me. (Ch)

3. (Instrumental) (Ch)

Track Name: Blessed Be (in You and Me)
"Blessed Be (in You and Me)"
by Cernowain Greenman © 2011

(Ch): Blessed be! Blessed be!
The Goddess lives in all we see
Blessed be! Blessed be!
She is alive in you and me

1. Whenever you're in need
Best be when the moon is full
Gather round the circle
and ask what you will
Do the spiral dance
Raise up a cone of power
Chant her many names
In a field of fragrant flowers, singing: (Ch)


2. In the glowing of the moon
In the twinkling of the stars
In flowing of the brook
She is never ever far
In the loving that we share
In the passion that we feel
In every act of pleasure
Her presence is revealed, singing: (Ch)


Tag: She is alive in you and me.

Track Name: Beltane Fire
"Beltane Fire"
by Cernowain Greenman © 2011


1. How can I tell you since I just met you
all of the feelings I have deep down inside?
How can I share them if I don't know you
well enough to start to confide?


Ch: But I just lose control
Down deep within my soul
Beltane fire begins to rise
And I watch it flicker in your eyes
I'm warmly drawn, I'm warmly drawn… to you


2. Flashlight around me, stars far above me
And you walking near me, I reach for your hand
And if your heart knew-- how much I want to
Reach out and touch you, would you understand? (Ch)


Bridge: Beltane fire, Beltane fire


3. It's almost the full moon, and I know too soon
That I will not see you, then what will I do?
So now I am singing, and you are hearing
And I hope you are knowing: this song is for you (Ch 2x)


.
Track Name: When the Goddess Danced
"When the Goddess Danced"
by Cernowain Greenman © 2011


1. When the Goddess danced
Everything was born
Nature began to sing
The God raised up his horn
The day embraced the night
Fruit grew on the Vine
The people began to dance
And the rhythm felt just fine


CH: "Come dance with Me,"
the Goddess calls to you.
Once you feel the beat
You'll know just what to do.
Listen to Her song
Your body knows the tune.
“Come dance with Me
and I will dance with you."


2. All acts of love and
pleasure are her rite
Your body was meant to move
like a burning flame at night
It's time to let it go
and say: so mote it be!
Join the Dance of Life
and set your body free (CH)


3. instrumental (CH 2x)

Tag: “Come dance with Me and I will dance with you.”

Track Name: Dionysos Dance
"The Dionysos Dance"
by Cernowain Greenman © 2011


1. Happy, joy and blessing be!
For we know the mysteries.
Our open hearts have been seized
By the joy of his dance


CH: Dancing on the sacred hill
Drinking ‘til we’ve had our fill
We come to know his holy will
In the Dionysos Dance


2. Putting on the ivy crown
Lift your wand and circle round
Love and blessing here abound
In the power of his dance (CH)


3. A spark of madness in your soul
Revives the body from the cold
And makes your sleeping spirit bold
In the of fire his dance (CH)


4. Dionysos is our Lord
He’s the one whom we adore
Celebrate his ancient lore
In the glory of his dance (CH 2x)

Track Name: The Tree and the Sparrow
"The Tree and the Sparrow"
by Cernowain Greenman © 2011


1. I am the tree, I am the sparrow
I am the bone, I am the marrow
I am the stars, I am the moon
I am the minstrel, I am the tune


CH: I am, I am, I am the Goddess


2. I am the shield, I am the sword
I am a lady, I am her lord
I am the sun, I am the earth
I am the dying, I am rebirth


3. I am the sky, I am the mountain
I am the river, I am the fountain
I am the ground, I and the seed
I am the longing, I am the need


4. I am the ocean, I am the reef
I am the forest, I am the leaf
I am the dawning, I am the dew
I am the myst’ry, I am the clue

Track Name: Secret Pagan Man
"Secret Pagan Man"
words by Cernowain Greenman © 2011


1. Oh, cover up that pentacle you're wearing
Your Jesus-lovin' boss is so over-bearing
Be careful what you say
Don't give yourself away
Odds are you won't have a job tomorrow


Ch: Secret Pagan Man
Secret Pagan Man
They've given you a Goddess
and a brand new Pagan name


2. Beware of pretty Christians that you find
A pretty face don’t mean an open mind
Don’t let the wrong word slip
When kissing those Christian lips
Don’t you dare yell out, “Oh, Aphrodite! Whoah!”

[Chorus] [Electric guitar solo] [Chorus]


3. You wear a suit and tie to work on Monday
and wearing hardly anything on Beltane!
If you come out at Pagan Pride
your folks will tan your hide
You’ll be in the Summerland tomorrow [Chorus]


Ch: Secret Pagan Man
Secret Pagan Man
They've given you a Goddess
and a brand new Pagan name
They’ve given you a chalice
and a brand new athamé
This secret life you live
is a foolish game
Secret Pagan Man!
