It's Reclaiming After All

To the tune of the Disney classic, "It's a Small World After All"

It's a world of angst and a veil of tears
If you open your heart, we will roast your fears
What do you expect when we dredge up all this dreck?
It's Reclaiming After All

(chorus sing-along):
It's Reclaiming After All
And we're all such know-it-alls
Bring your grief and all your rage
It's Reclaiming After All

You can whine and complain all the live-long day
You can bitch and moan your entire camp stay
You can cry, you can weep, but we won't let you sleep
It's Reclaiming After All

You can show off your bust and express your lust
You can save the world with the chant "We Must!"
You can dance in the center if you can get in
It's Reclaiming After All

You can scream, you can yell in your own private hell
Just make sure you're done by the dinner bell
And remember this gestalt: it's your ancestors' fault
It's Reclaiming After All

by Georgie Dennison, Diana Hamid, Morgaine, Mer (Mary DeDanan), Medusa, and Morgan Le Fey (from the 1999 California Witchcamp talent show )
