Tony Martin – Sweet Elyse lyrics

Take a little bit of voodoo magic
Just a little won't do much harm
Then follow the scent of the sweet perfume
To the woman with open arms
Yeah that's sweet Elyse

If heaven ever made a nightmare
When refuge is never found
From the touch of a woman
So obsessed by love
It will run you into the ground
Yeah that's sweet Elyse

Here she comes ringin' the bell
Knockin' at my door
Don't you know sweet Elyse
You must have met her before
See a family man cryin' on his knees
And when you hear the hound dogs howl
That's sweet Elyse

She will turn the night into evermore
Just to dance beneath the stars
There's not a place left
In heaven or hell
To protect you from her charms
Yeah that's sweet Elyse

If heaven ever made a nightmare
Just to dance beneath the stars
Then Elyse is the woman
She's one in a million
She will kill you with her charms
