Well, I ain't superstitious
But a black cat crossed my trail
Well, I ain't superstitious
But a black cat crossed my trail
And don't you hit me wit' a broom
It's a sign you may get in jail

Now, when my right eye jump
I will be real glad
Now, when your right eye jump
You can bet you gonna be real glad
But when your left eye jump
It's a sign you're gonna be real mad

Well, I ain't superstitious
But a black cat cross' my trail
Well, I ain't superstitious
But a black cat cross' my trail
And don't you sweep me wit' a broom
It's a sign you may-a get in jail, mm-hm



(harmonica & instrumental)

'Well, I ain't -

(guitar & instrumental)

'Mmm-mmm-mmm, mm-mm'

(piano & guitar)

Now, when you buy the dessert
Well, you know
Somebody's comin' hungry
Well, if you buy the desert
You know somebody's comin' hungry
But when your right hand itch
You're gonna bet, you're gonna
Gettin' some money

Well, I ain't superstitious
But a black cat crossed my trail
Well, I ain't superstitious
But a black cat crossed my trail
And don't you hit me wit' a broom
'Cause you know I will get in jail

Well, I ain't superstitious

You know, I ain't superstitious

Oh well, I ain't superstitious

Well, I ain't superstitious
Well, I ain't superstitious
But a black cat cross my trail.
