Thread Name: Lyr Req: Song about Baba Yaga?
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Song about Baba Yaga?
And I have to own up about Maurice Ravel.
The lyric I recalled does no more than
"name-drop" Baba Yaga -- "babaiaga" in the original French --
along with a lot of other boogeypersons.
It's from the third of
Ravel's "Trois Chansons"
called "ronde," which I think means "rondo."
Written around 1915.

And the lyrics are by ...
Maurice Ravel.
