  • Dear Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau
    I'm on my knees, I'm beggin' you
    Awake the fallen one in me
    Thy power above all I hail

    The white room on your grave I brought
    Together with cigars and gold
    I'll find you at the river's end
    As the followers enter your realm

    Sing, voodoo Marie, let me hear thy tone
    Speak, voodoo Marie, let me hear thy tongue
    Queen of New Orleans mother of the coven
    Sing, voodoo Marie you've been called out again

    Concerned about the soul I hold
    In my heart I know he's stubborn too
    Awake the fallen father please
    Thy power above all I hail

    Sing, voodoo Marie, let me hear thy tone
    Speak, voodoo Marie, let me hear thy tongue
    Queen of New Orleans mother of the coven
    Sing, voodoo Marie you've been called out again

    How silent is the lonely one?
    What do we see, what do we know?
    Marie Laveau, I'm full of hope
    Let me speak until forever more

    How silent is the lonely one?
    What do we see, what do we know?
    Marie Laveau, I'm full of hope
    Let me speak until forever more

    Sing, voodoo Marie, let me hear thy tone
    Speak, voodoo Marie, let me hear thy tongue
    Queen of New Orleans mother of the coven
    Sing, voodoo Marie you've been called out again
    Called out again, called out again
    Called out again, called out again Writer/s: MICHAEL POULSEN
