Ozzy Osbourne Mr. Crowley Lyrics

Last updated: 02/27/2014 09:33:49 AM

Mr. Crowley, what went down in your head
(Oh) Mr. Crowley, did you talk to the dead
Your lifestyle to me seems so 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
(Oh)Conceived in the eye of a secret
Yeah, they scattered the afterbirth


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


Was it polemically sent?
I wanna know what you meant
I wanna know
I wanna know what you meant, yeah!


Thanks to for submitting Mr. Crowley Lyrics.

If you can't write a proper English sentence, don't leave a comment. If English is your second language, comment in your native one so at least we can pretend you have a command of that language. I hate people who leave what they think is an intelligent, deep, thoughtful response, but their grammar is so fucked up you can't even understand wtf they are saying. Use, punctuation "properly!". Otherwise, just go somewhere and die.

Magic is not good white ,black. It's all. Bad it is not of god ..... I'll pray for the deceived.... Do not what thou wilt do that whic is pleasing to god. Know and love him and you shall have everlasting life in peace and love.... Jesus loves you!! God bless!!!! <3

An addition to things sorted out | Reviewer: Aaa | 10/8/13

Quite right as B mentioned below. Aleister Crowley was NOT a black magician and despised black magic.

I think it was a goat which had sex with a women, or a man having sex with a goat, and at the point of orgasm, the head was cut of the goat. Total white magic as anyone can see. Crystal clear magic... or Bee magic.

There are a ton of documentaries about Crowley out there. Go see for yourselves and don't waste your times expressing your points of view in here. They will just get "sorted out".

Let's sort some things out! | Reviewer: Bee | 9/30/13

Simply put:

- Crowley was not a black magician, in fact, he despised black magic.

- He was an occultist who wrote the Liber Al Vel Legis, The Book of the Law, and created a ceremonial magickal system based on the concept of Thelema (Will). The Liber was its masterwork.

- Most people don't even know what SATAN means. It is a word to specify anything in opposition to another. If you believe in one religion and that the truth of God belongs in it only, all other religions automatically become "satanist", adversaries, to yours.

- Anton LaVey was indeed a Satanist. But nothing to do with Crowley, please. Instead, Mr Aleister was involved with the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn on his early years.

- Perhaps Ozzy was just curious about Crowley's magickal work. No worshipping, no criticism. Just curiosity. Actually Crowley's picture even appears at the Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's cover. He was a very clever and "mysterious" man who inspires curiosity to people not formally involved in Occultism. That's all.

Idiots!! | Reviewer: STACHDADDY | 9/26/13

I really can't believe the comments people have made. Idiots!!! Crowley was NOT A black magician? Yes, the song is about him but Ozzy doesn't worship him or Satan, never has never will. Ozzy is actually a Christian, a really shitty one like I am a really shitty one but his is nonetheless. Check out the documentary his son Jack made about his dear old dad. Dummies, the world is full of dummies. Ozzy rules, love you Ozzy!!!

Missing the Point | Reviewer: butsrslytho | 2/10/13

OK guys, this speculation is all well and good but it's clear that you're all missing the real point here. The only actual significance this song has is that it's deffs the where the writers of Supernatural got their inspiration for the character Crowley. Sheesh guys, sort out your priorities...;P

aleister crowley | Reviewer: jimmym | 12/15/12

Just to make sure you all know this song is all about a man called aleister crowley a black magician known as "the wickedest man in the world" youtube him if you dont beleieve me

I know where it is, the pieces fit. | Reviewer: Anonymiss | 11/17/12

Crowley lake, Sudbury ON, white horse is a quarry above Crowley lake. (check out a map on google with satellite mode) very symbolic, considering that Sudbury is where the 2nd meteor hit earth, dating 2.1 billion years ago, I would argue it would be the beginning of a "new era" or time. 00 :) xx

to the moron that dont believe, | Reviewer: jojofosho | 10/21/12

Are you afraid of what is waiting for you, a man with nothing to believe in" well just has nothing! dont you get it fool every comment thus far is a different belief interpritation of WHAT they believe so think befor you go off on your tandom of facts peace!

Don't sweat it. | Reviewer: Brother Bob | 8/4/12

Many words have many meanings. Don't waste your time trying to second-guess what the lyrics mean. It's an endless and fruitless journey, because YOU WILL NEVER KNOW THE TRUTH! Instead, just kick back and let your mind relax and immerse itself in the music.

wtf mate!? | Reviewer: wendy city | 5/24/12

Mr.Crowley wasn't just a flat out Satanist, he was an occultist, likened to H.P. Blavatsky. He has ties to Jack Parsons and the freemasons, if you take the time to read, all will be revealed. It wouldnt hurt either to read some of his works. thanks to all the good historical facts presented from the previous commenters, it was an amazing brain sandwich, yum.

We get the point, people! | Reviewer: Shahir | 4/29/12

All this debacle and arguing over something that is purely art! Yes, it's about Aleister Crowley and the crazy and unreal things he did. And in the lyrics, Ozzy wonders about this. But really, this song is one of the best I've ever heard, with haunting singing by Ozzy and THE MOST BRILLIANT guitar work by the legend Randy Rhoads! His solos are breathtaking and so masterful... I love it

Uncovered thing | Reviewer: Moein | 3/21/12

After reading the lyrics for many times and seeing the films about satanism: it's true, it's about Aleister Crowley, but i'm almost sure that this song is dissaproving Crowley. But one thing gets me fu**in hanged up.
Crowley has written a book with the title "Wizard of Oz" !!! and he used "OZ" for several times in his books as a Satanic Symbol!
now you can find out why i'm hanged up! the album Blizzard of Oz really looks like the name of Crowley's book "Wizard of Oz" and also Osbourne's nickname "Ozzy" is drastically similar to "Oz", the symbol that Crowley used it as a satanic symbol in his books..

For you information | Reviewer: Craig Berthiaume | 1/24/12

Yeah, just so you all know - Ozzy didn't write the lyrics to Mr. Crowley. To be honest, Ozzy didn't write the lyrics to anything. When he was in Sabbath it was Mr.Geezer Butler that did the lyrics. For the first two Ozzy albums it was actually the bass player, Bob Daisly, that wrote the lyrics.

In response to "Just Lookin out".... | Reviewer: Keystone28 | 1/3/12

Just lookin out wrote:
"The song Mr Crowley is DEFINITELY a song ABOUT a very well known satanist named Aleister Crowley. The man was a High Priest of The Church of Satan and was very close to its founder, Anton LaVey."

Really? Because if you took the time to research what you said, you'd know that Lavey was 16 when Crowley died, and moreover,after LaVey read Crowleys work, he was of the opinion that Crowley was a druggy poseur whose greatest achievements were as a poet and a mountain-climber.

It's a song about what a nutjob Crowley was, nothing more. If you read the lyrics to some of his early Sabbath work, you can see that he was not writing anything satanic. Just look at the lyrics for "after forever" by Black sabbath, and you'll know the truth about them.

"Could it be you're afraid of what your friends might say
If they knew you believe in God above?
They should realize before they criticize
that God is the only way to love."

Nuff said.
