New York Dolls — Hoochie Coochie Man lyrics

Gypsy woman told my mother
Before I was born
Got a boy child comin
Like a son of a gun
A boy and girl
Both jump and shout
And world's gonna find out
What it's all about

Because I and I am
Yeah, everybody knows I am
Said I'm your hoochie coochie man
And everybody knows I am

I got a black cat bone
A mojo tooth
Talk bout john the conqueree
That don't mess with you
A man and a woman
A boy and girl
In hoochie coochie ghetto
Drive around the world

Just like I am
And everybody knows I am
Said I'm your hoochie coochie man
And everybody knows I am

On th 7th hour
Come 7 days
Talk bout 7 months
And 7 docters say
Your born for bad luck
That's a low down shame to see
I got seven thousand dollars
Don'tcha mess with me

Because I am
Yeah, everybody knows I am
Said I'm a hoochie coochie man
And everybody knows I am
Everybody knows...
You know I am.
