Lyrics

The most famous of all the Voodoo queens that ever existed Was Marie Laveau down in Louisiana 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 go (eeeeeee) another man done gone

She lives in a swamp in a hollow log With a one eyed snake and a three legged dog She got a bent bony body and stringy hair And if she ever seen you all messing round there She go (eeeeeee) 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 When he was looking around for Marie Leveau He said Marie Leveau, you lovely witch Gimme little charm that'll make me rich Gimme million dollars and I tell you what I'll do This very night, I'm gonna marry you And it'll be, mmmm, 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 hands 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 damn ugly for a rich man like me Then Marie started numbling her fangs started gnashing Her body started trembling and her eyes started flashing And she went (eeeeeee) another man done gone So if you ever get down where the black trees grow And meet a voodoo lady named Marie Leveau 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 (ooweee) another man done gone
