Castin' My Spell
Johnny Otis Lyrics


I took a black cat, a cave bat
And threw them in a pot-pot (pot-pot, pot-pot-pot)
I took a blue snake, a green stake
And tied them in a knot-knot (knot-knot, knot-knot-knot)
I took a hog jaw, a dog's paw
And hung them on the line-line (line-line, line-line-line)
I took a horse hair, a green pair
And made a crazy sign-sign (sign-sign, sign-sign-sign)
I'm castin' my spell on you
I'm castin' my spell on you
I'm castin' my spell on you
You'll never-never be untrue

I took a ghost tooth, an old shoe
And put them in the ground-ground (ground-ground, ground-ground)
I took an old dish, a dried fish
And made a crazy sound-sound (sound-sound, sound-sound-sound)
I took a goose egg, a frog leg
And hit them in a sack-sack (sack-sack, sack-sack-sack)
I got a hindu to tattoo
A genie on my back-back (back-back, back-back-back)
I'm castin' my spell on you
I'm castin' my spell on you
I'm castin' my spell on you
You'll never-never be untrue, yeah

I took a black cat, a cave bat
And threw them in a pot-pot (pot-pot, pot-pot-pot)
I took a blue snake, a green snake
And tied them in a knot-knot (knot-knot, knot-knot-knot)
I took a hog jaw, a dog's paw
And hung them on the line-line (line-line, line-line-line)
I took a horse hair, a green pair
And made a crazy sign-sign (sign-sign, sign-sign-sign)
I'm castin' my spell on you
I'm castin' my spell on you
I'm castin' my spell on you
You'll never-never be untrue
You'll never-never be untrue
You'll never-never be untrue
You'll never-never be untrue
You'll never-never be untrue
