    Lyrics

    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
