      Sit my child
      And you'll be told,
      Of the Strega ways
      In the days of old.
      When they danced and sang
      Under the full moon light,
      To the Mother our Goddess,
      For it was their rite.
      Circles were cast
      And spells were wrought,
      For wisdom and love
      Of Her was sought.
      Then an evil cloud descended
      All across the land,
      And the faith that we now practice
      Was altogether band.
      For many generations
      They had to hide in fear,
      But they kept the fire burning
      Because their faith it was so dear.
      Many feared and hated
      Our religion they tried to take,
      By torturing and killing
      And burning at the stake.
      Now no matter how they persecuted
      And tried to tear apart,
      They kept the fire burning
      Always burning in their heart.
      Now on and on it passed
      From kin to kin to kin,
      No greater love of faith
      Has there ever been.
      So for those before you
      Under the full moon say a pray,
      For if it wasn't for these fearless souls
      That encountered such despair,
      We wouldn't know the ways
      The Strega left behind.
      For it's the fire burning in us
      Our love of it will bind.
      For children of the Lady
      That fire it burns still,
      As long as you're devoted
      And always do Her will.
      She'll always stand beside you
      She'll grant your every need,
      Just bide in all She asks of you
      In every thought and every deed.
      So my child you think
      The story it now ends,
      But on in you it goes
      Another chapter for you to lend,
      To the legacy that's yours
      Given to from those that past.
      And in you child don't let it end
      Don't let you be the last.
      Carry on the banner
      Carry on the flame,
      For the Strega is a lifestyle
      It's more than just a name.
