My Best Friend's a Shaman

Can be sung to the tune of "My Old Man's a Dustman".
My best friend's a shaman, and I'm a shaman, too
Yes, I know that I was Wiccan, but that's all so ingénue.
I've given all my witchy things to my little sister, Kat
For since I've turned 14 I feel I've quite grown out of that.

My best friend's guy's a shaman and he really knows his stuff.
He visits every website and he never needs to bluff.
He's got these cool dreamcatchers, he's got wolf pictures on each wall
His shaman name is really neat, it's White Wolf in Snowfall
(He's got a picture. Really. And I just thought it was a blank sheet of paper!)

My best friend's guy said shamen had all nearly died and so
We thought to be real shamen we'd better have a go.
Her neighbours have an electric fence and one day we leaned on that.
But I ended up in bandages and felt a proper twat.

We thought we'd try a few drugs, 'cos that's what shamen do
So we raided her boyfriend's supply, and pretended to be Sioux.
We crammed it in his pipe of peace, and sucked on it like mad
But all we got was headaches and it made us feel quite bad.

The boyfriend's got a sweat lodge which he told us we could try.
We sat and chanted and got hot, and then we got quite high.
We thought that we were journeying into the spirit land
But the vodka he put on the coals had made us all quite canned.

My best friend's a druid, and I'm a druid, too
Yes, I know that I was shaman, but that's all so ingénue.
I've given all my native things to my little sister, Kat
For since I've turned 15 I feel I've quite grown out of that.
