THE WISE WITCHES OF WAIMEA VALLEY

We are the Wise Witches of Waimea Valley

We’re witty and whacky and whimsical too

Come wander the warren of words with us as we whip up a spell for our witches’ brew

While weaving our web for you

We are the Wise Witches of Waimea Valley

Our whiskers are white and wavy

In a wigwam we sit with our watch-fires lit and care not a whit as the whirligig wakes while

We whistle a charm for you

We are the Wise Witches of Waimea Valley

We’ll whirl and we’ll twirl with a whizz and a whang

Come wonder, come watch – come wrangle with us by the glow of a Wolf Hunter moon as

We wheeze and we warble a tune

We are the Wise Witches of Waimea Valley

We waggle our tongues and wail our wild chant

And wiggle our hips as we waltz and we twirl to spin you a yarn of wonder and want

While we whoop and watusi with whee

We are the Wise Witches of Waimea Valley

We wear our wimples and wigs

We’ll tell you a story with warped wanton prose and a whale of a tale as the saying goes

While winking our eyes at you

We are the Wise Witches of Waimea Valley

Our werewolves do roam in the withies

The weevils and willies and will o’ the wisps do whisper and whine and whimper with woe

As they waddle and wobble in wellies

We are the Wise Witches of Waimea Valley

We’re wily and wilful and winsome and witty

We’ve warlocks with wands and weasels with warts who twitter and witter and wrestle with words

To wheedle you in to our game

We are the Wise Witches of Waimea Valley

We welcome you into our world

Whoo-hoo hoots the owl as Van Winkle awakes and wades in the water to wash while

We whittle our wicks by the willows
