I thought perhaps you would enjoy this parody

Which I read on Erin Manning’s (Red Cardigan) blog.

(Warning: If you are drinking something, put it DOWN before reading this or your keyboard will be ruined.)

The Priestess Connection (with apologies, sung to the tune of the Muppets’ song, The Rainbow Connection)

Why are there so many
Stoles made of rainbows
And vestments that are tie-dyed?

Rainbows are symbols
Of womyn’s confusion
And yet represent gay-pride

Get on the boat and wrap sheets all around you
Mu-mus and trinkets and sea
Someday they’ll find it, the Priestess Connection
Athena and Isis and me.

Who said that only men
Could stand at the altar?
(God did. But we just don’t care)

Somebody told us that
And some may believe it
We say it just isn’t fair

We’ve gone as far as we can with star-gazing
Tarot cards, crystals, and tea
We want to find it, the Priestess Connection
Demeter and Freya and me…

(…all of us can cast a spell
Though mostly we’re just comi-tragic…)

Have you dozed off at lunch
And heard mystic voices?
Calls to the priesthood for dames,

Was it the voice of fate
Or maybe the pizza?
Where can we place the blame?

I think Dan Brown is the one who began it
Or people who think God is "She"
Someday we’ll find it, that Priestess Connection,
Minerva and Lilith and me…

…la, excommunication…
la la la I cannot hear youuuuuu…!

Heh. Good. Clever.


#3

I don’t get it; what’s the tune?


#4

:rotfl:

I can picture Kermit singing it…


#5

HERE - the sung portion starts about three bars in. :slight_smile:


#6

I can’t download music. I could, but it would be so slow it wouldn’t be worth it and then I’d have to dump it again.


#7

Not sure how to help you, then - if you weren’t a Muppets fan as a kid, I’m not sure how to describe it to you.


#8

Oh, I guess I skipped the intro. I was but can’t recall that song.:confused:


#9

If you saw the first “Muppet Movie” (I think 1979), it’s the song Kermit sings in the swamp before deciding to leave.

Here’s a link to the song on You Tube if you can get it:
