I Put a Spell on You
Screamin' Jay Hawkins Lyrics


I put a spell on you
Because you're mine
Stop the things you do
Watch out
I ain't lyin'

Yeah, I can't stand
No runnin' around
I can't stand
No put me down
I put a spell on you
Because you're mine, ohh yeah

Stop the things you do
Watch out
I ain't lyin'

Ohh, oh

I love you
I love you
I love you, anyhow
I don't care if you don't want me
I'm yours right now
I put a spell on you
Because you're mine

Ohh, oh, whoa, ooh, ah

Maybe because he was a bit of a weirdo ? Only reason I found SJH is because my stephfather told me a story about how he was.
My stephfather is one of the organisers of a festival in my country.
He told me how one of his volunteers picked up SJH from the airport. In a van with black tinted windows as Jay didn't want to see any daylight.


They drove the van inside the tent he burst out screaming PRAISE DA LAWDDD.
After his show Jay went back into the van...And that volunteer was so damn sick of him. He drove to a local naturepark and went on a 2 hour hike with the keys. Jay was stuck in the van hahahaha.


Absolutely brilliant.

I love how everyone copies this song and tries to make it seem like a love song but I’m pretty sure the original intent was for it to be creepy as fuck like this. This is the best version ever!

J Nighs

TO be fair They don't even remember the original intent they were all wasted on the original an he doesn't even remember recording it he said

@Juju Bee H Yeah, 9 when she did her arrangement of the song. She entered Norway’s Got Talent at 7 and won it all after turning 8. She did a demo for a song when she was 10, that a lot of people think could have been a #1 hit. There is a lot of speculation and rumors as to why she didn’t release it, but nothing that can be backed up with anything. Check it out, “I’m Still Holding Out For You”. It had to be leaked to the internet for us to enjoy it. https://youtu.be/Dv8mjCh5iiE

When you get so liquored you accidentally invented metal.

CrypticReality84

@Kevin F People are on crack man. The only thing metal shares with this is that it's human beings playing instruments and the imagery. I can argue that Johann Sebastian Bach was the first metal artist because of the heaviness of Toccata in fugue in D minor. Then again, I shouldn't have high expectations of humanity on YouTube.

Screaming is a genius and he had a lot of " stuff" to steal but we got to regroup.That's over with.Let's work on not repeating as much as possible."Scheme" work don't make the dream work.
