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 (Have mercy)
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 (Its' the eagles wing, baby, what did I say) 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 chile, yeah, voodoo chile 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 (Have mercy) 'Cause I'm a million miles away And at the same time I'm right here in your picture frame (Yeah! What did I say now) 'Cause I'm a voodoo chile Lord knows, I'm a voodoo chile (yeah!)
Well my arrows are made of desire From far away as Jupiter's sulphur mines Say my arrows are made of desire, desire From far away as Jupiter's sulphur mines (Way down by the Methane Sea, yeah) 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 (Yeah) 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 chile Lord knows I'm a voodoo chile
