Subject: I put a spell on you

I am looking for the lyrics to I Put a Spell on You. I know that CCR did this, but I believe the Screamin' Jay Hawkins version had more verses.

Can anyone help with this or other versions?

Thanks,

Steve Latimer

The lyrics to "I Put A Spell On You" by Jay Hawkins are here. Another version is here. And here are the lyrics as performed by CCR.

But have you heard Screamin' Jay's "Constipation Blues"? Final verse starts off "plop! let it go let it go"

yours, in the interests of good taste, Callie

Here's a page with notes from Jay and lyrics for "Constipation Blues". This site also has a page on "I Put A Spell On You" with still more versions.

Omigod! Jeff, you're a gem!

I'm going to have to send my hubby to this website - the Constipation Blues is his favourite song (don't know why, he's a big muesli-eater himself).

Many thanks

Karolina,

I couldn't get the Blueclickything to the Screamin' Jay version to work. Do you know the URL, I can put it in manually.

Thanks again,

Steve

I PUT A SPELL ON YOU
As sung by Screamin' Jay Hawkins

I put a spell on you
Because you're mine.
Stop the things you do.
Watch out! I ain't lyin'.
I can't stand no runnin' aroun'.
I can't stand no puttin' me down.
I put a spell on you
Because you're mine.

Stop the things you do
Watch out! I ain't lyin'.
I love you. I love you. I love you.
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, mine, mine!


Also recorded by: Annie Lennox, Buddy Guy (with Carlos Santana), Creedence Clearwater Revival, Jeff Beck, Manfred Mann, Marilyn Manson, Nina Simone, Queen Latifah, Shane MacGowan and friends, The Animals, and others.

This song is often included in Halloween-themed anthologies.

you forgot the "Crazy World of Artur Brown" - complete with a helmet lit with meths. Even Alice Cooper rated him as crazier than some long forgotten band that were bugging Alice on the subject of craziness. Might even have been Screaming Lord Such. But I forget.
