    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.
