At that moment she is showing the power of her voice, and she plays her voice off Guy’s guitar, much as she has played her movements off it in the previous couple of minutes. It was one of those magic music moments.


This is what music is all about. What a joy to watch and listen to!

Lyrics below

Well, I’m a voodoo child
Lord I’m a voodoo child

Well, the night I was born
Lord I swear the moon turned a fire red
The night I was born
I swear the moon turned a fire red
Well my poor mother cried out
“Lord, the gypsy was right!”

And I seen her, fell down right dead

Well, mountain lions found me there waitin’
And set me on a eagles back
Well, mountain lions found me there,
And set me on a eagles wing
He took me past to the outskirts of infinity,
And when he brought me back,
He gave me a Venus witch’s ring
Hey!
And he said “Fly on, fly on”

Because I’m a voodoo child, yeah, voodoo child
Hey!

Well, I make love to you,
And lord knows you’ll feel no pain
Say, I make love to you in your sleep,
And lord knows you felt no pain
‘Cause I’m a million miles away
And at the same time I’m right

Here in your picture frame
‘Cause I’m a voodoo child
Lord knows, I’m a voodoo child

Well my arrows are made of desire
From far away as Jupiter’s sulfur mines
Say my arrows are made of desire, desire
From far away as Jupiter’s sulfur mines
I have a humming bird and it hums so loud,
You think you were losing your mind, hmmm…
Well I float in liquid gardens
And Arizona new red sand
I float in liquid gardens
Way down in Arizona red sand
Well, I taste the honey from
A flower named Blue,
Way down in California
And the in New York drowns as we hold hands
‘Cause I’m a voodoo child
Lord knows I’m a voodoo child
