about

This song was made famous in the film The Wickerman. Like a lot of the songs used in the film it was adapted from a traditional song. I've always wanted to record this, but couldn't bring myself to sing it on my own - it's meant to be sung by a female - but then I thought, what about a duet? Add the trancy slow drums and you have a VERY sexy song, nice.

lyrics

Willow's Song
(Traditional)

Hey. ooh, who is there?
No one but me my dear
Please come, say how do
The things I'll give to you
A stroke as gentle as a feather
I'll catch a rainbow from the sky and tie the ends together

Hey, ooh, I am here
Am I not young and fair?
Please come, say how do
The things that I'll show to you
Would you have a wondrous sight?
The midday sun, at midnight

Fair maid white and red
Comb you smooth and stroke your head
Mmmmmmmm
Mmmmmmmm
How a maid can milk a bull,
And every stroke a bucketful.
