Got my mojo working, but it just won't work on you Got my mojo working, but it just won't work on you I want to love you so bad, I don't know what to do
Going down to Louisiana to get me a mojo hand Going down to Louisiana to get me a mojo hand I'm gonna have all you women under my command
Got my mojo working Got my mojo working Got my mojo working Got my mojo working Got my mojo working, but it just won't work on you
I got a gypsy woman givin' me advice I got a gypsy woman givin' me advice I got a whole lottsa tricks keepin' her around

Nick from London, United KingdomMuddy Waters caught Ann Cole on tour in 1956 and was so impressed with her version of the Preston Foster song that he reworked the lyrics and attempted to copyright it as his own. The original publishers, Dare Records, were none too pleased but the matter was settled out of court resulting in the ambiguous situation of two separately copyrighted versions, although in recent years, Chess has credited the song to Foster. Ann Cole began her career with the family spiritual group, The Colemanaires, who made a number of recordings for Ann's uncle's own label, the Coleman Recording Company. In 1954, she cut four singles for Timely Records, before Baton took up her contract releasing Are You Satisfied as the first single. Rhythm and Blues Magazine, July 1957, 'It seems that the fabulous young belter of the blues, Miss Ann Cole, has finally dug into a good luck treasure chest and has come up with the winning sound that has her on the hit kick... if "Mo-Jo" means the power of producing hit records, then it sure is working for lovely little Ann... hip yourself to the happenings.'
