No, it's not just you. :-)

IN LLAMEDOS

Where can you find pagans, sacrificial maidens,
Spirits of the earth and trees
Come to where the stones stand pointing to life's great and
Underlying mysteries
Through the changing season hear the voice of reason
This is where you're meant to be
Don't you be so fickle, take your golden sickle
And gather mistletoe with me

In Llamedos
Where you can hear the druids call
In Llamedos
Where the standing stones are tall
In Llamedos
Where there's lots of buggerall
In Llamedos, in Llamedos
No, there's not much here at all!

In Llamedos
Join the righteous and the wise
In Llamedos
Singing praises to the skies
In Llamedos
While the rain gets in your eyes
In Llamedos, (in Llamedos), in Llamedos (in Llamedos)

They want you, they want you
They want you as a new recruit

Made from solid blocks carved from the very rocks
Our circles are a sight to see
Don't they look terrific, grey and monolithic
Triumph of technology
Join the druids up there, diagnosing software
Incompatibility
Raise your voice and sing and dance the trodden ring
Believe in our theology

CHORUS

They want you, they want you
They want you as a new recruit

Who me? [1]
But, but I hate rocks!
Hey, look, I get dizzy just looking at a stone circle!
Good grief, what do I *look* like in this nightshirt!?

They want you, they want you in Llamedos

[1] The spoken word bit should be read in an outrageous welsh accent.
