POWER SONG

by Screaming Ssnake Womoon, Shrieking Sserpent Wimmoon, and Bellowing EARTH Womoon

This here is our power song - Doo dah, Doo dah
It's real stupid and it's way too long - Oh da doo dah day

(Sung bellowed, wailed, and howled to the tune of "Camptown Ladies")


We went out on a Vision Quest - Do daa Do daa
Them Nature Spirits Whooped our Ass - Oh da do daa day

Chorus: Gonna cry all night - gonna cry all day
Crying in the dark dark Woods - Oh da do daa day


Oh, We went to Balance the White Man's Debt
- Do daa Do daa
Almost did it with our own death - Oh da do daa day

Chorus: Gonna Die all night - gonna Die all day
Dying in the Dark Dark Woods - Oh da doo daa day


We climbed up on the great big rock - Do daa Do daa
Stumbled back down in Spirit Shock - Oh da do daa day

Chorus: Gonna die....


We called on Isis for protection - Do daa Do daa
The Spirits thought we were hexing them
- Oh da do daa day

Chorus: Gonna fight all night - Gonna fight all day
Fighting for our life and limb - Oh da do daa day

This scary bit of documentary was channelled written transcribed by an extremely delirious SsnakeWomoon, SserpentWimmoon and EarthWomoon during the semi-aborted Vision Quest of Summer '86 -- deep in the woods on a mountain, at darkmoon in the rain, driving all night in the car, then failing at sleep, then driving some more, then doing more ritual, then more driving, then more ritual, yet more driving, and then in the Hecafé Café.

This endless song began on the endless, defeated, all-night car ride from hell, when we saw the "Campton Campground" sign.... and, well, we became infected with this awful, awful song. Please forgive us.

And to those of you who kept requesting this over the years: Just look what you've wrought. (We waaaarned you.)

Special mention goes to EarthWomoon, who was actually able to transcribe this much of it, whilst we howled and bellowed and spilled coffee. What was never written down is probably best forgotten (shudder).

Irony alert: The "desert " verses are in reference to the ritual we did manage to do on the second day. It was a pre-arranged linkup with Native American activists and ceremonial people, working together with us (and others, of course) on the crisis at Big Mountain. I honestly don't know why they tolerated us. They were very kind. We were very young. The horror. The horror.
