"The Green Manalishi (with The Two-pronged Crown)" as written by and Peter Green....
Now when the day goes to sleep and the full moon looks
And the night is so black that the darkness cooks
And you come creeping around, making me do things I don't want to do

Can't believe that she needs my love so bad
Come sneaking around, trying to drive me mad
Busting in all my dreams, making me see things I don't want to see

Cause you're the Green Manalishi with the two-pronged crown
All night dragging us up, or you're bringing us down
Just taking my love, and slip away
Leaving me here, trying to keep from following you

    General CommentThis is the greatest Vocal demonstartion ever made, truly the best of HAlford, I havent seen anyone have that kinda control on his voice. the scream at the end was amazing (or whatever it was)

    General Commentas was previously said, the song was originally done by Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac. Green based the song off a dream he had in which he was spoke with a green dog that supposedly represented money. so the Green Manalishi is money... and the two-pronged crown is supposed to represent the devil.

    the mac version is pretty cool, but the Priest version blows it away. the guitar riff is so dirty and nasty. i just recently got into Priest and i absolutely love this song.

    General CommentRipping good cut. There's no arguing with that disco drumming after the first verse.
