Shawn James & The Shapeshifters – Love Me Or Die lyrics
[Verse 1]
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 of my mistake
Falling slave to passing desire
Making the dreaded Love me or Die

[Verse 2]
Under a Jungle primeval green
She had the looks of a beauty queen
No bangles or chain, wearing broken shoe
Seventy-five cent bottle perfume
I said, "good morning", I tipped my hat
All the while I was cunning like a rat
Smiling gaily, looked her in the eye
I felt in pocket, the Love me or Die

[Verse 3]
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

[Verse 4]
Lawd, word broke through the town
That a fever strike Matilda down
Nine thirty, the doctor arrive
Priest come running, quarter to five
Standing in the weeds early next day
I saw the meat wagon rolling away
I seen Matilda laying in the back
Her old mother wearing a suit of black

[Verse 5]
Sound the trumpet, and bang the drum
I wait for me judgement to come
I know her spirit is down beneath
I hear the weeping 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
