C.W. Stoneking - The Love Me Or Die

I studied evil, I can't deny
Was a hoodoo charm called a Love Me or Die
Some fingernail, a piece of her dress
Apocathery, Devil's behes'
I will relate, the piteous consequence my mistake
Fallin slave to passin desire
Makin' the dreaded Love me or Die
Against a Jungle primeval green
She had the looks of a beauty queen
No bangles or chain, wearin' broken shoe
Seventy-five cent bottle perfume
I said, "Good mornin", I tipped my hat
All the while I was cunning like a rat
Smilin gaily, looked her in the eye
I felt in pocket, the Love me or Die
My past history, one to behold
I studied magic from days of old
Membership, secret societies
Power and wealth in my family
But Matilda, Darling
Why you don't take my wedding ring
Like a demon under the floor
I buried the hoodoo down the back door
Lawd, word broke through the town
That a fever strike Matilda down
Nine thirty, the doctor arrive
Priest come runnin, quarter to five
Standin in the weeds early next day
I saw the meat wagon rollin away
I seen Matilda layin in the back
Her old mother wearin a suit of black
Sound the trumpet, and bang the drum
I wait for me judgement to come
I know her spirit is down beneath
I hear the weepin and gnashing of the teeth
Flames of Hell licks at my feet
In the shadow of the Jungle I feel the heat
Matilda's waiting in Hell for me too
All cause she died from a bad hoodoo
