Hootchie Cootchie Man

A gipsy woman told my mother
before I was born
"I got a boy child coming
He's gonna be a son of a gun.
He's gonna make pretty womens
jump and shout
then the world wanna know
what's this all about"

But they know I'm him
Everybody knows I'm him
I'm the Hootchie Cootchie Man
Everybody knows I'm him

I got a black cat bone
I got a mojo too
I got a John the Conquerer root
I'm gona mess with you
I'm gonna make you girls
Lead me by the hand

Then the world will know
the Hootchie Cootchie Man
Everybody knows I'm him
I'm the Hootchie Cootchie 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 to good luck"
And that you see
I got seven hundred dollars
don't you mess with me

But you know I'm him
Everybody knows I'm him
I'm the Hootchie Cootchie Man
Everybody knows I'm him
