Stonehenge lyrics by Spinal Tap

(Were they the inspiration for Julian's interest in the stones? )

In ancient times, hundreds of years before the dawn of history, lived a strange race of people - the druids. No one knows who they were, or what they were doing, but their legacy remains, hewn into the living rock - of Stonehenge.

Stonehenge, where the demons dwell,
Where the banshees live and they do live well.
When a man is a man and the children dance
To the pipes of pan.

'Tis a magic place where the moon doth rise
With a dragon's face,
Where the virgin's lie
And the prayers of devils fill the midnight sky.

And you my love, won't you take my hand.
We'll go back in time to that mystic land
Where the dew-drops cry and the cats meow,
I will take you there,
I will show you how.

And oh how they danced, the little children of Stonehenge, beneath the haunted moon, for fear that the daybreak might come too soon...

...And where are they now, the little people of Stonehenge? And what would they say to us, if we were here... tonight.
