  • Lyrics
  • Gypsy woman told my momma, before I was born
    You got a boy-child comin', gonna be a son-of-a-gun
    Gonna make these pretty women, jump and shout
    And the world will only know, a-what it's all about

    Why'know I'm here
    Everybody knows I'm here
    And I'm the hoochie-coochie man
    Everybody knows I'm here

    On the seventh hour, of the seventh day,
    On the seventh month, the seventh doctor said:
    "He's born for good luck, and I know you see;
    Got seven hundred dollars, and don't you mess with me

    Why'know I'm here
    Everybody knows I'm here
    And I'm the hoochie-coochie man
    Everybody knows I'm here

    Gypsy woman told my momma
    Said "Ooh, what a boy,
    He gonna make so many women,
    Jump and shout for joy"

    Why'know I'm here
    Everybody knows I'm here
    And I'm the hoochie-coochie man
    Everybody knows I'm here

    Gypsy woman told my momma, before I was born
    You got a boy-child comin', gonna be a son-of-a-gun
    Gonna make these pretty women, jump and shout
    And the world will only know, a-what it's all about

    Why'know I'm here
    Everybody knows I'm here
    And I'm the hoochie-coochie man
    Everybody knows I'm here

    I got a black cat bone, I got a mojo too
    I got John the Conqueror, I'm gonna mess with you
    I'm gonna make you, pretty girl, lead me by the hand
    Then the world will know, the Hoochie-Coochie Man Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
