This was inspired by the recent thread on ABP started by Hasoferet and on the subject of "Does anyone else ... want to be Granny Weatherwax when they grow up?". Doesn't apply to me incidentally, I aim to be a Vetinari when I'm older :)

Based on: Granny Weatherwax
Tune: Garbage, "When I Grow Up" (with crudish bits replaced)

Da da da daa (ad nauseam)

Hairpins come out
Granny stomps about
Like a giant chelonaut.

Everyone cowers
On seeing her powers
Headology really freaks them out.

She can fly a
Wooden broomstick
There's no need to walk about.

Others fly too
Nanny Ogg, that's who
Magrat and the King too,

When I grow up I'll be Weatherwax
When I grow up I'll make news on the clacks

Trying hard to
See this borrowing through
Floating out to Uberwald.

And the sign said
"I Aten't Dead"
Damn the consequences,

When I grow up I'll be Weatherwax
When I grow up I'll make news on the clacks

Da da da daa (ad nauseam)

Blood and blisters
On her fingers
Stake those vampires through the heart.

Watch her temper
She goes mental
Never has been gentle,

When I grow up I'll make news on the clacks
When I grow up
When I grow up
When I grow up I'll make news on the clacks

Da da da daa (ad nauseam)
