I wanted you to love me
Had to know what was on your mind
I went to a gypsy woman
Just to help this heart of mine

She bent down in a comma
She said, “I know what to do
I mixed it up this morning
I must have been expecting you”

It’s made of snakes and snails
And puppydog’s tails
Things that you don’t know
It’s made of old wine, turpentine
Rat’s blood, tastes good
Mix it up and then I stir it slow

I wanted you to love me
Had to hear you say it too
I went to a gypsy woman
And asked her what to do

She gave me some love potion
Said to put it in your tea
I saw your face go red and hot
Then watch you turn it on me

It’s made of snakes and snails
And puppydog’s tails
Things that you don’t know
It’s made of old wine, turpentine
Rat’s blood, tastes good
Mix it up and then I stir it slow

I wanted you to love me
So I did what the gypsy said
When I woke up this morning
I saw you lying in bed

I went back to the gypsy
Asked what did she do
She said, “I’m sorry honey
but I have to have my fun too”

It’s made of snakes and snails
And puppydog’s tails
Things that you don’t know
It’s made of old wine, turpentine
Rat’s blood, tastes good
Mix it up and then I stir it slow

I wanted you to love me
