Hogswatch song during the Maskerade

Postby Leia Tortoise » Tue Nov 29, 2011 04:44 pm

I loved the song who did

"five skull rings, four elephants, three witches, two vampires and a turtle swimming through space"

at the end, but no one I ask could remember what are the other lyrics and the sentences before the chorus, could anyone help please?

Judging from this picture Image the missing line was 7 Hippos Swimming. And 7a Wizzards Casting, rather than Chanting.

Glad you like it, Pam and I came up with it in about half an hour when Davina asked for more acts. I was going to post the lyrics but now I don't have to - result!

The missing one is 7 Hippos Swimming.
