Love Potion No. 9
The Clovers Lyrics


I took my troubles down to Madame Rue
You know that gypsy with the gold-capped tooth
She's got a pad on Thirty-Fourth and Vine
Sellin' little bottles of Love Potion Number Nine

I told her that I was a flop with chicks
I've been this way since ninteen-fifty-six
She looked at my palm and she made a magic sign
She said "what you need is Love Potion Number Nine"

She bent down and turned around and gave me a wink
She said "I'm gonna mix it up right here in the sink"
It smelled like turpentine, it looked like India ink
I held my nose, I closed my eyes, I took a drink

I didn't know it was day or night
I started kissin' everything in sight
But when I kissed a cop at Thirty-Fourth and Vine
He broke my little bottle of Love Potion Number Nine

I held my nose, I closed my eyes, I took a drink

I didn't know it was day or night
I started kissin' everything in sight
I had so much fun that I'm going back again
I wonder what happen with love potion number ten?
Love Potion Number Nine
Love Potion Number Nine
Love Potion Number Nine

Lyrics for ya:

I took my troubles down to Madame Rue
You know that gypsy with the gold-capped tooth
She's got a pad down on Thirty-Fourth and Vine
Selling little bottles of Love Potion Number Nine

I told her that I was a flop with chics
I've been this way since 1956
She looked at my palm and she made a magic sign
She said "What you need is Love Potion Number Nine"

She bent down and turned around and gave me a wink
She said "I'm gonna make it up right here in the sink"
It smelled like turpentine, it looked like Indian ink
I held my nose, I closed my eyes, I took a drink

I didn't know if it was day or night
I started kissing everything in sight
But when I kissed a cop at Thirty-Fourth and Vine
He broke my little bottle of Love Potion Number Nine

I held my nose, I closed my eyes, I took a drink
I didn't know if it was day or night
I started kissin' everything in sight
But when I kissed a cop at Thirty-Fourth and Vine
He broke my little bottle of Love Potion Number Nine

Love Potion Number Nine
Love Potion Number Nine
Love Potion Number Nine

I took my troubles down to Madame Ruth, you know that Gypsy with the Gold-Capped Tooth.
She's got a path on 34th and Vine, selling little bottles of Love Potion #9.
I told her that I was a flop with chicks, I've been this way since 1956.
She looked at my palm, and she made a magic sign. She said, "What you need is: Love Potion #9"

She bent down, and turned around, and gave me a wink.
She said, "I'm gonna mix it up, right here in the sink."
It smelled like turpentine, and looked like India Ink.
I held my nose, I closed my eyes. (I took a drink.)
I didn't know if it was Day or Night, I started kissing everything in sight.
But when I kissed a Cop at 34th and Vine, he broke my little bottle of Love Potion #9.

Instrumental

I held my nose, I closed my eyes. (I took a drink.)
I didn't know if it was Day or Night, I started kissing everything in sight.
But when I kissed a Cop at 34th and Vine, he broke my little bottle of Love Potion #9.
Love Potion #9 x3

Why is this version not more popular than the searchers? This is beautiful!

Lucas 50

Because the searchers are white...White bands often covered songs from black bands!

Eddie Kay

Production. Searchers version had just enough bells and whistles.

holitipu

@Lee Etchells yeah but the point still stands...considering how much music was being made by black artists...one group at the top doesn t make sense does it.
