Subject: Jake Thackerey lyrics
From: GUEST,billz@sbw1.fsnet.co.uk
Date: 15 Sep 02 - 05:52 AM

Very anxious to learn a song I heard about 20 years ago in a folk club: by Jake Thackerey, I think it was called something like 'The Wimbledon witches magic circle' - if you know it, you'll recognise it from this. All help gratefully accepted. Music as well would be the icing on the cake; I don't completely trust my memory on this. Any other Jake Thackerey lyrics/info/leads also needed - did he make any records? Many thanks, Jay Burrows

The surname is actually Thackray and if you type that (Thatckray) in the Filter box and set the Age drop-down to 3 years you'll get 2 threads about him. If you click the Looking for Jake Thackray songs thread you'll find in there a link to an unofficial Jake Thackray site. Scroll down there to the discography and look for The Castleford Ladies Magic Circle and the link there will take you to the words.

Just an excuse to post this song. I'd never heard Jake Thackray's songs before this weekend. Mighty silly and even mildly subversive stuff.

This one made me smile:
THE CASTLEFORD LADIES MAGIC CIRCLE
(Jake Thackray)

The Castleford Ladies' Magical Circle meets tonight,
In an upstairs aspidistra'd room that's lit by candlelight,
Where Elizabeth Jones and Lily O'Grady
And three or four more married ladies
Practice every week unspeakable pagan rites.

Dressed in their Sunday coats and their flowerpot hats,
Respectable middle-aged ladies - running to fat, at that -
There's Elizabeth Jones and Lily O'Grady
And three or four more married ladies,
Each with a Woolworth's broomstick and a tabby cat.

But they don't waste time with a ouija board or a seance now and again, no.
None of your wittering, twittering, petty poltergeists for them. No,
Elizabeth Jones and Lily O'Grady
And three or four more married ladies
Prefer to be tickled by the whiskery chins of bogey men.

Their husbands potter at snooker down the club,
Unaware of the devilish jiggery-poke and rub-a-dub-dub,
While Elizabeth Jones and Lily O'Grady
And three or four more married ladies
Are frantically dancing naked for Beelzebub.

And after the witches' picnic and the devil's grog,
After their savage pantings, their hysterical leap-frog, well,
Elizabeth Jones and Lily O'Grady
And three or four more married ladies
Go back home for cocoa and the Epilogue.

So be careful how you go of a Saturday night:
If you see a little old lady passing by, it very well might be
Elizabeth Jones or Lily O'Grady
Or one of those satanical ladies.
Their eyes are wild and bright, their cheekbones all alight.
Don't go where they invite,
Because the Castleford Ladies' Magical Circle meets tonight.

This Thread gives plenty of Jake's lyrics, and links to other discussions.

Perhaps some kind Joe Clone would add this to the 'linked' discussions.

Cheers
Nigel
