Mother always said
Keep away from her
When she goes by the dogs all cry, but cats all purr
She's the Voodoo Queen
Up from New Orleans
Here she comes now lookin' like the universe was all hers

Voodoo Queen Marie
She ran the town of New Orleans
Ran it since her middle teens, like her favorite toy
Well that's just fine because
That was just exactly what it was
There ain't nobody, ain't no laws made to fit Queen Marie

Has she got the power?
Don't the men all stare?
Golden hoops and rainbow clothes, long black shiny hair
Hangin' to her hips
Cherry coloured lips
Other women walk on the earth but this one sails through the air

Folks tell fabulous lies
They say that green light shines from her eyes
Say that she's a cat in disguise, say there's horns on her head
Say she's married as well
They say she wed the devil in hell
Turned him into a big black snake and keeps him under her bed

Watch that woman shake
She's dancin' with her snake
Dancin', dancin' all night long on the moon-lit, candle-lit voodoo lake
Dressed in flamin' red
Dancin' with the dead
Dancin' all night long with a red fish tail over her head

The voodoos know her name
They pass the tail from hand to hand
You could go all through this land and never hear a word said
But if you know where to look
It won't be found in anyone's book
But the voodoos know and say Queen Marie's not dead
