Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Song about Baba Yaga?
I never heard of her from my French side, but from the Russian grandmother and Hungarian mom, oh yeah! One of my favorite characters...
For those of you not from Eastern Europe, she's the wicked witch of the woods who eats children, but *also* has a house that stands on duck's feet and turns around and around to watch on all sides, and if you get away from her she will chase you in a mortar, driving it on with the pestle, and sweeping her traces away from behind her with a broom. I always admired that versalitity.
