"Hoochie Coochie Man" as written by and Forrest Richard Betts....
The gypsy woman told my mother
Before I was born
I got a boy child's comin'
He's gonna be a son of a gun
He gonna make pretty women's
Jump and shout
Then the world want to know
What this all about
But you know I'm him
Everybody knows I'm him
Well you know I'm the hoochie coochie man
Everybody knows I'm him
I got a black cat bone
I got a mojo too
I got the Johnny Concheroo
I'm gonna mess with you
I'm gonna make you girls
Lead me by my hand
Then the world will know
The hoochie coochie man
But you know I'm him
Everybody knows I'm him
Oh you know I'm the hoochie coochie man
Everybody knows I'm him
On the seventh hours
On the seventh day
On the seventh month
The seven doctors say
He was born for good luck
And that you'll see
I got seven hundred dollars
Don't you mess with me
But you know I'm him
Everybody knows I'm him
Well you know I'm the hoochie coochie man
Everybody knows I'm him...

    General CommentThis is originally a Hendrix song!?!? NO WAY! Are you sure?

    I'm not sure the lyrics are correct, though. Black cat bone, not bad, mojo, not bojo, at least.

    I wish people would use the right syntax on these lyrics. NOT i, PLEASE use I!!! LAME LAME LAME...also capitalize the first word of each line...anyway, just a little rant. Ah that felt good.

    General CommentAnd the lyrics here are not correct.....

    it should be-->
    An even more widely recorded song by Muddy Waters, called Hoochie Coochie Man, also mentions John the Conqueroo. Its lyrics include:

    I got a black cat bone, I got a mojo too,
    I got the John the Conqueroo, I'm gonna mess with you,
    I'm gonna make you girls, lead me by my hand,
    Then the world will know, the Hoochie coochie Man.

    ..... and black cat, mojo are related with the voodoo/magic and even John the Conqueroo is the term used to ascribe the relation of the roots of the magic in african/american people.....


    And this song was also done by Muddy Waters..... :)
