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.

Fun fact: This song was originally supposed to be a blues ballad but before recording, the producer brought in and I quote "chicken and beer and got everyone drunk" causing the absolute masterpiece that is this. And entire genre created by accident.

@John Peterman shock/thrill rock

John Peterman

Drippy, What is the genre created?

Joey Guerra

No not at all, the man was clearly possessed. Traveling eye did you catch that? The masonic eye = satanic agenda This had nothing to do with beer and chicken. Yeshua is the way, the truth and the life!

KandyTexasHippieVet

Yes this is a fact

W. S. Lewis Piano Music

This man invented a whole music genre and gets absolutely no credit.

Let's fix this shit.

@Tre Angle Well, I've never heard any member of Bauhaus mention this guy in any interview or anything. And I certainly don't see it or hear it in either their music or their performances or their image. Bauhaus are more arty and elegant and this guy is really campy and kitchy.

@Tre Angle Well, the guy I replied to simply said "Goth". He didn't specify "Rock".

Tre Angle

@pheonix 5 Bauhaus has cited Jay as a major influence. Just stop it lol
