The most famous of the voodoo queens that ever existed
There's a lot of weird ungodly tales about Marie,

Lives a voodoo lady named Marie Laveau
And anyone who wouldn't leave her alone
She'd go another man done gone
With a one-eyed snake and a three-legged dog

She'd go another man done gone
Into the swamp come handsome Jack
A no good man like you all know
He said Marie Laveau, you handsome witch

This very night, I'm gonna marry you
So Marie done some magic, and she shook a little sand
Made a million dollars and she put it in his hand
I'm getting ready for my wedding day

Then Marie started mumbling her fangs started gnashing
And she went another man done gone.
So if you ever get down where the black trees grow
If she ever asks you to make her your wife

The most famous of the voodoo queens that ever existed
There's a lot of weird ungodly tales about Marie,

Lives a voodoo lady named Marie Laveau
And anyone who wouldn't leave her alone
She'd go another man done gone
With a one-eyed snake and a three-legged dog

She'd go another man done gone
Into the swamp come handsome Jack
A no good man like you all know
He said Marie Laveau, you handsome witch

This very night, I'm gonna marry you
So Marie done some magic, and she shook a little sand
Made a million dollars and she put it in his hand
I'm getting ready for my wedding day

Then Marie started mumbling her fangs started gnashing
And she went another man done gone.
So if you ever get down where the black trees grow
If she ever asks you to make her your wife
