about

This song highlights some of the special people that helped establish a community of magick, begun some 60+ years ago, which continues on despite repeated efforts to squelch it's tenacious power and mystery. It all adds up to one mystical, magick planet.

lyrics

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.
