about

This song is for Badger, a.k.a. Alice "Badger" Washburn. Badger passed away on Dec. 26, 2011. I had only briefly met her at Boskone, but she made such an impression on me that I felt the need to write this and sing it at her memorial filk at Arisia 2012.

Listening to others' stories and songs, it became clear to me that I was not wrong in my first impression of her - she really was like a goddess to so many people, raising them up, encouraging them, bringing them love and joy and always giving of herself. I feel privileged to have known her even such a short time.

lyrics

I met a woman, and she filled the room up with her love
She reminded me of all the little dreams I had stopped thinkin' of.
She was like a goddess with a bucketful of joy
I offered her a song and she said "Oh boy,
Sing it now!"

Sing it now
Sing your love
Sing your life
Sing your story
Sing it now

Bring it now
Bring your joy
Bring your pain
Bring your cussin'
Bring it now

Sing it now
Not tomorrow
Not some other day
Sing it right now!

I met a woman, and her beauty was a thing to behold
She was so full of lovin' she was kind, she was caring, she was bold
She was like a goddess with a bucketful of fun
She was mellow like the moon but she was warm like the sun
Sing it now!

Sing it now
Sing your love
Sing your life
Sing your story
Sing it now

Bring it now
Bring your joy
Bring your pain
Bring your cussin'
Bring it now

Sing it now
Not tomorrow
Not some other day
Sing it right now!

I only met her once but I'll remember her until I die
She seemed to know life is now and there wasn't any time for askin why
She was like a goddess with a bucketful of sky
She was sweet, never bitter, and she was not shy
Sing it now!

Sing it now
Sing your love
Sing your life
Sing your story
Sing it now

Bring it now
Bring your joy
Bring your pain
Bring your cussin'
Bring it now

Sing it now
Not tomorrow
Not some other day
Sing it right now!
