When shadows fill the sky 
And evil's all around 
Don't call a preacher 
A different creature 
Bring the hoodoo down. 
Beside a sacred fire 
That's where he will be found. 
Somewhere in Haiti 
Baron Samedi 
Bring the hoodoo down. 
Bring the hoodoo down. 
Aah-aah-ahh  aah-aah-aah 
It's a river of blood 
And a river of tears. 
Aah-aah-ahh  aah-aah-aah 
It's a river of Love. 
I know you'll die to see 
That zombie jamboree. 
The dead will tango 
Until the mambo 
Bring the hoodoo down. 
Aah-aah-ahh  aah-aah-aah 
It's a river of blood 
And a river of tears. 
Aah-aah-ahh  aah-aah-aah 
It's a river of Love. 
We're gonna learn to dance 
And fall into a trance, 
And picking cotton 
Will be forgotten 
Bring the hoodoo down. 
Bring the hoodoo down. 
Bring the hoodoo down.
