THAT (REAL) OLD TIME RELIGION (with apologies to Pete Seeger) Chorus: Give me that Old Time Religion, Give me that Old Time Religion, Give me that Old Time Religion ... It's good enough for me! We will worship Aphrodite, 'Though she's kind of wild and flighty - We will see her in her 'nighty And that's good enough for me! We'll sing praises to Apollo; Where the Sun God leads we'll follow ('Though his head's a little hollow) - He's good enough for me! With the aid of my athame I can throw a "double-whammy" (And can slice and dice salami!) So it's good enough for me. Let us raise a toast to Bachus, We will raise a royal ruckus, Then we'll lay us down and f**k us - That's good enough for me. It was good enough for Buddha, As a god he kinda cute-a, And he comes in brass or pewta' So he's good enough for me! Well the Christians all are humming 'Cause they say their God is coming; Our God came three times this evening; That's good enough for me. Uncle Crowley was a dreamer At the Abbey of Thelema But his magic is a screamer, So it's good enough for me. When the clouds they are a'rumbling And the thunder is a'grumbling, Then it's Crowley that you're mumbling, And it's good enough for me! We will worship Great Cthulhu, We will worship Great Cthulhu, And we'll feed him Mr. Sulu 'Cause that's good enough for me! It was good enough for Dagan, A conservative old pagan, Who still votes for Ronald Reagan, But he's good enough for me! Well I'm tired of Ronald Reagan, He's too square to be a pagan, Let's all vote for Carl Sagan! He's good enough for me. We all worshipped Dionysus 'Till we ran into a crisis - The bar had raised its prices; That's not good enough for me. We will worship like the Druids And drink strange, fermented fluids And run naked through the woods 'Cause that's good enough for me! We will go and sing "Hosanna" To our good ol' pal, Gotamma. He will never flim or flam ya', And that's good enough for me! It was good enough for Isis, 'Cause she comes through in a crisis And she's never raised her prices So she's good enough for me. There are some that call it folly When we worship Mother Kali. She may not be very jolly But she's good enough for me. Shall we sing in praise of Loki, Though he left poor Midgard smokey? Oh, his sense of humor's hokey, But he's good enough for me. It was good enough for Loki, The old Norse god of chaos, Which is why this verse doesn't rhyme or scan, But it's good enough for me! Montezuma liked to start out Rites by carrying a part out That would really tear your heart out, But it's good enough for me! It was good enough for Odin Though the tremblin' got forbodin' Then the giants finally strode in, But it's good enough for me. There's that lusty old Priapus - He's just itching to unwrap us. (He'd do more to us than tap us And that's good enough for me!) Shall we sing a verse for Thor, Though he leaves the maidens sore? They always come back for more, So he's good enough for me! It was good enough for Venus, Of the Gods she is the meanest And she bit me on my ... elbow But she's good enough for me! There are those who practice Voodoo, There are those who practice Voodoo, I know I do, I hope you do - It's good enough for me. Meeting at the Witching Hour By the Bud and Branch and Flower Folks are raising up the power And that's where I want to be.
