(David Bowie)

You remind me of the baby
What baby? the baby with the power
What power? power of voodoo
Who do? you do
Do what? remind me of the baby

I saw my baby,
crying hard as babe could cry
What could I do?
My baby's love had gone
And left my baby blue
Nobody knew:

CHORUS
What kind of magic spell to use?
Slime and snails
Or puppy dogs' tails
Thunder or lightning
Then baby said
Dance, magic dance
(dance magic, dance)
Dance, magic dance
(dance magic, dance)
Put that baby spell on me
Jump, magic jump
(jump magic, jump)
Jump, magic jump
(jump magic, jump)
Put that magic jump on me
Slap that baby, make him free

I saw my baby,
trying hard as babe could try
What could I do?
My baby's fun had gone
And left my baby blue
Nobody knew

CHORUS

Dance, magic dance
(dance magic, dance) (x4)
Jump, magic jump
(jump magic, jump) (x2)

Put that baby spell on me

You remind me of the baby
What baby? the baby with the power
What power? power of voodoo
Who do? you do
Do what? remind me of the baby

Dance, magic dance, ooh ooh ooh
Dance magic, dance magic, ooh ooh ooh
Dance magic

What kind of magic spell to use?
Slime and snails
Or puppy dogs' tails
Thunder or lightning
Something frightening

Dance, magic dance
Dance, magic dance
Put that baby spell on me
Jump, magic jump (x2)
Put that magic jump on me
Slap that baby make him free
Dance, magic dance
(dance, magic dance) (x4)
Jump, magic jump
(jump, magic jump)
Jump, magic jump
Put that magic jump on me
Slap that baby

Dance, magic dance
(dance, magic dance) (x2)
Dance, magic dance
Slap that slap that baby make him free
Dance, magic dance
(dance, magic dance) (repeat ad-lib)
