Hoochie Cooochie Man

Our take on the Willie Dixon classic

 

The gypsy woman told my mother
On the day I was born
You got a boy child comin'
He's gonna be a son of a gun
He gonna make pretty women's
Jump and shout
Then the world wanna know
What it's all about
Because I'm him
Everybody knows I'm him
I'm the hoochie coochie man
Everybody knows I'm him

got a black cat bone
I got a mojo too
I got the Johnny Conqueror root
He's gonna mess with you
I'm gonna take all the women
Lead me by my hand
Then the world gonna know
I'm the hoochie coochie man
Because I'm him
Everybody knows I'm him
I'm the hoochie coochie man
Everybody knows I'm him

On the seventh hour
On the seventh day
On the seventh month
The seven doctors say
He was born for good luck
Just you wait and see
I got seven hundred dollars
Don't you fool with me
