"Tell me, what do you do with witches?" Crowd:
"Burn, burn them up!" Sir Bedevere:
"And what do you burn apart from witches?" Villager:
My mother was a witch, she was burned alive Thankless little bitch, for the tears I cried Take her down now, don't wanna see her face All blistered and burned, can't hide my disgrace
— Diamond Head, "Am I Evil?"
"Burn the witch Burn to ash and bone"
"Choose me or your pyre! Be mine or you will burn!"
I can't wait to dance around the maypole! It's so beautiful this year! Norway:
Indeed. Only one thing is missing. (lights the maypole on fire)
Don't forget the witch!
Coming to get you yeah, I'm coming to take you away You witches are evil, you worship the Devil, so listen to what I say! Peacefully come out your huts or I'll have you witches flayed Must destroy you, play inside you, watch you wither away Who's coming to get you, coming to take you away? I find you guilty, witch-woman, 'cause I'm the Witchfinder-General!
A cart rolled through the town And people all around Gathered for the burning of the witch They grit their teeth in anger They raise their arms in fear The burning stake was ready for that bitch Singing "Burn her! Burn her! Burn her to the ground!" Singing "Burn her sins! Burn her pride! Burn her till she dies!"
—"Burning A Sinner", Witchfinder General
I'm a fantasy role-playing gamer I play whenever I can I play Dungeons & Dragons, Runequest and Shadowlands I've played as kings and vikings, Wizards, elves and more Until a bunch of fundies came and kicked down my front door They stole my dice and gamebook They called it a book of spells They said I was conjuring demons And things too weird to tell They burned my books and papers They almost burned me, too They really believe in magic They thought that stuff was true!
