The most famous of the voodoo queens that ever existed Is Marie Laveau, down in Louisiana There's a lot of weird ungodly tales about Marie She's supposed to have a lot of magic potions, spells and curses.... Down in Louisiana, where the black trees grow Lives a voodoo lady named Marie Laveau Got a black cat's tooth and a Mojo bone And anyone who wouldn't leave her alone She'd go another man done gone She lives in a swamp in a hollow log With a one-eyed snake and a three-legged dog She's got a bent, bony body and stringy hair If she ever seen why'all messing round there She'd go another man done gone And then one night when the moon was black Into the swamp come handsome Jack A no good man like you all know He was looking around for Marie Laveau He said Marie Laveau, you handsome witch Give me a little a little charm that'll make me rich Give me a million dollars and I tell you what I'll do This very night, I'm gonna marry you Then It'll be another man done gone So Marie done some magic, and she shook a little sand Made a million dollars and she put it in his hand Then she giggled and she wiggled, and she said Hey, Hey I'm getting ready for my wedding day But old handsome Jack he said goodbye Marie You're too damned ugly for a rich man like me Then Marie started mumbling her fangs started gnashing Her body started trembling and her eyes started flashing And she went another man done gone So if you ever get down where the black trees grow And meet a voodoo lady named Marie Laveau If she ever asks you to make her your wife Man, you better stay with her for the rest of your life Or it'll be another man done gone
