"Voodoo" as written by Ashanti S. Douglas, Irving Domingo Lorenzo and Marcus Vest....
Say you don't know me, you'll burn
You can refuse, but you'll lose, it's by me
Say you don't want me, you'll learn
Nothin you do will be new, 'cause I'm through

Call me a liar, you knew
You were a fool, but that's cool, it's all right
Call me the Devil, it's true
Some can't accept but I crept inside you

So if a stranger calls you
Don't let him whisper his name
'Cause it's Voodoo, oh!

Fade into shadow, you'll burn
Your fortune is free, I can see it's no good
Never look back, never turn
It's a question of time 'till your mine and you learn

So if a stranger sees you
Don't look in his eyes
'Cause he's Voodoo!

Say you don't know me, you'll burn
You can refuse, but you'll lose, it's by me
Say you don't want me, you'll learn
Nothin you do will be new, 'cause I'm through

Voodoo!

Bring me your children, they'll burn!
Never look back, never turn!
Cry me a river, you'll learn Voodoo!!

    General CommentWell thats your opinion. I think the album is great. About the song I think its about the evil side everyone has inside them.

    General CommentThis is some of Tony Iommi's best work, the thing about about Black Sabbath that I hate is that no one talks about Tony Iommi. Every time they mention Black Sabbath its about Ozzy and Dio. Tony gave Heavy Metal its sound. I love Ozzy and Dio, but Iommi was and is the sound of metal.

    General Comment"The Mob Rules" wasn't really a GREAT album either. I only like "E5150".

    General CommentI agree with you dehumanizer123, the album is a good album with Dio. Although, I like "Heaven And Hell" better, "The Mob Rules" is still a good album. "Voodoo" isn't a bad song, but I like "Over And Over" the best.

    General CommentI almost think this song could be about how God can be quite the tyrant to those who don't obey his every command, but then again, the members of Sabbath are pretty religious, so I doubt that.
