"Mr. Crowley" as written by and R. Daisley O. Osbourne....
Mr. Crowley,
what went wrong in your head?
Oh, Mr. Crowley,
did you talk with the dead?
Your life style to me
seemed tragic
With the thrill of it all
You fooled all the people with magic
Yeah you waited on Satan's call

Mr. Charming,
did you think you were pure?
Mr. Alarming,
in nocturnal rapport
Uncovering things that were sacred
Manifest on this Earth
Conceived in the eye of a secret
And then scattered the afterbirth
Go

Mr. Crowley,
won't you ride my white horse?
Oh, Mr. Crowley,
it's symbolic of course
Approaching a time that is classic
I hear that mating call
Approaching a time that is drastic
Standing with their backs to the wall

Was it polemically sent?
I want to know what you meant
I want to know
I want to know what you meant
Go.

    General CommentThe only cover I liked of cradle was hallowed be thy name, this ruined the song for me, now every time I listen to Mr. Crowley I can only hear this pos.

    General CommentLike Hallowed Be Thy Name, this cover sucks real bad, again the solo suckes and of course the vocals suck even worse.

    General CommentIt's an excellent cover. Honestly, much better than Ozzy's but I feel as though Ozzy lacks highly in vocal talent so I'm not surprised that this is more to my liking.

    General CommentIt is not a horse race to see who has the better version. Cradle paid Ozzy tribute and anybody that argues that Cradle is garbage is simply wishing that everybody would not respect their favorite musicians music.

    My honest opinion is that I didn't originally like this song because it sounded incredibly cheesy, but the Cradle version made it viable and great. I respect Ozzy more from having heard this cover. Great work by Cradle on this song.
