about

Mama Dragon is the first song I've ever written purely on commission, purely to celebrate the life of a friend. Special thanks to Paula, Jeff, Kim, Scott, and Andrea for the stories that broke my writer's block. Greatest thanks goes to Mama Dragon herself, truly a star in my sky, truly a friend and an inspiration beyond compare.

lyrics

Come for the day and stay a year
That's the way it goes around here
In the House of Mama Dragon
Trudy's house becomes a home for
all who seek and laugh alone
It's the House of Mama Dragon
Tawt I taw a puddy cat well,
she's got two, and fish on top of that!
In the House of Mama Dragon
Stick around and soon you'll be
cashing in on STRAGEDY!
In the House of Mama Dragon
Remember, thou art god. Now take your cookie.

How's she gonna cast circle today,
with the carrot or the athame
In the House of Mama Dragon?
Wit can bite and smiles can shine but
not when you leave your teeth behind
In the House of Mama Dragon
When it comes your turn for the ritual cup/and your time is up
and/if your mind goes blank
just make it up!/who gives a ****!!
In the House of Mama Dragon
Remember, thou art god. Now take your cookie.
Remember, thou art goddess; yes.

Crone jokes I've never heard before:
"of course, you realize, dis means war!"
In the House of Mama Dragon
Dragonlady doesn't speak in fire but she'll
kick your *** when things get down to the wire
Just like the Trickster when you raise his ire.
So all who seek and laugh alone,
just consult your local Crone.
She will take it all in stride.
Disbelieve the light in my own eyes;
she claims to be disorganized!
Just don't expect a place to hide the bodies!

Remember, thou art god!!
Remember, thou art goddess, yes!!
Remember, when the gods all stutter on your precious name
You have the gift of humor;
no one who meets you will frown for very long
or ever be the same.
