The Witch Song - Julie Felix

Who are the witches?
Where do they come from?
Maybe your great great grandmother was one.
Witches are wild, wise women they say.
And there's a lot of witch in every woman today.
Oh, the witches knew all about flowers and weeds,
What to do with the plants, the roots and the seeds.
And when people grew weary of hard working
Days, the witches were there in so many ways
Oh, who are the witches?
Where do they come from?
Maybe your great great grandmother was one.
Witches are wild, wise women they say.
And there's a lot of witch in every woman today.
When women had babies the witches where there,
To help them and heal them and give them care.
And the witches knew stories of how life began.
You think you can be one? Maybe you can.
Oh, who are the witches?
Where do they come from?
Maybe your great great grandmother was one.
Witches are wild, wise women they say.
And there's a lot of witch in every woman today.
Oh, and some men thought that the witches were
bad seems they was frightened of the power they had.
But power to have and to heal and to care
Is not the power to fear, its the power to share.
Oh, who are the witches?
Where do they come from?
Maybe your great great grandmother was one.
Witches are wild, wise women they say.
And there's a lot of witch in every woman today.
These where the sisters of the moon and the earth.
Learning the secrets of death and of birth.
These ladies knew how much to give and to take.
They where called witches and were burned at the stake
But the spirit goes oooon, and oooon and oooon.
Oooon and ooon and ooon.
Can't kill this spirit.
She's like a mountain.
Old and strong.
Going on and on and on.
You can't kill this spirit
She's like a mountain.
Old and strong
Going on and on and on.
You can't kill this spirit.
She's like a mountain.
Old and strong.
Going on and on and on.
You can't kill this spirit.
She's like a mountain.
Old and strong.
Going on and on and on.
You can't kill this spirit.
She's like a mountain.
Old and strong.
Going on and on and on.
Instrumental...
Can't kill this spirit.
She's like a mountain.
Old and strong.
Going on and on and on.
You can't kill this spirit.
She's like a mountain.
Old and strong.
Going on and on and on.


The Witches

The witches -
wild, wise;
there's a lot of witch in every woman today.
The witches knew flowers,
the roots and the seeds.
When people grew weary
the witches were there;
there's a lot of witch in every woman today.
You think you can be one? Maybe you can.
Some men thought witches were bad,
frightened of the power they had
but the power to have and to heal and to care
is not the power to fear, it's the power to share.
The sisters of the moon and earth,
learning the secrets of death and of birth -
called witches and were burned at the stake.
Can't kill this spirit;
she's like a mountain,
old and strong,
going on and on and on.
