Marie Laveau

The most famous of the all the voodoo queens that ever existed is the Marie Laveau, down in Louisiana. [There are] a lot of weird ungodly tales about Marie. She's supposed to have a lot of magic potions and spells and curses.
 
Down in Louisiana, where the black trees grow,
lives a voodoo lady named Marie Laveau.
She got a black cat tooth and a Mojo bone
and anyone who wouldn't leave her alone
she'd go MRREE... 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 stran'y hair,
and if she ever seen y'all messing 'round there,
she'd go MRREE... 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,
and he was looking around for Marie Laveau.
 
He said "Marie Laveau, you lovely witch,
gimme a little charm that'll make me rich.
Gimme a million dollars and tell you what I'll do:
This very night, I'm gonna marry you.
Then It'll be mmm... 1another 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 ol' 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 MRREE... another man done gone!
 
Oh 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 OO-EEE... another man done gone!
