I got a Black Magic Woman.
I got a Black Magic Woman.
Yes, I got a Black Magic Woman,
She's got me so blind I can't see.
But she's a Black Magic Woman and
she's trying to make a devil out of me.
I can't come down, it's plain to see.
I can't come down, I've been set free.
Who you are, and what you do,
don't make no difference to me.

Fee, fee, fi, fi, fo-fo, fum
Look at Molly now, here she comes
Wearin' her wig hat and shades to match
She's got high-heel shoes and an alligator hat
Wearin' her pearls and her diamond rings
She's got bracelets on her fingers, now, and everything
She's the devil with the blue dress, blue dress, blue dress,
Devil with the blue dress on
Devil with the blue dress, blue dress, blue dress,
Devil with the blue dress on

Now, New York City
on a Friday night
A lot of things happenin',
a lot of bright lights.
Saw a pretty woman
all dressed in red
She turned to me
and this is what she said
She said, Honey I got the blues
I got the blues
from ridin' all night
in these high heel shoes.

Well, she took me to the corner
that she called her home
Turned around
and we were all alone.
Come on in, she said with a smile
Come on in and we can rest a while.
Well, Honey I got the blues
I got the blues
from ridin' all night
in these high heel shoes.

I said, Listen here,
honey, I been around
You ain't foolin' me, 'cause
I know what you've found.
She bent kinda low and then
she tickled my lips.
She said, Listen here, son,
I'm gonna give you a tip
Honey I got the blues
I got the blues
from ridin' all night
in these high heel shoes.
And leave it on!

As I stand by your flame
I get burned once again
Feelin low down, Im blue

As I sit by the fire
Of your warm desire
Ive got the blues for you, yeah

Every night youve been away
Ive sat down and I have prayed
That you're safe in the arms of a guy
Who will bring you alive
Wont drag you down with abuse

In the silk sheet of time
I will find peace of mind
Love is a bed full of blues

And Ive got the blues for you
And Ive got the blues for you
And I'll bust my brains out for you
And I'll tear my hair out
Im gonna tear my hair out just for you
If you don't believe what Im singing
At three oclock in the morning, babe, well
Im singing my song for you

"Got any nails?"
"No!"
"Got any flies?"

Bell bottom blues, you made me cry.
I don't want to lose this feeling.
And if I could choose a place to die
It would be in your arms.
Do you want to see me crawl across the floor to you?
Do you want to hear me beg you to take me back?
I'd gladly do it because
I don't want to fade away.
Give me one more day, please.
I don't want to fade away.
In your heart I want to stay.

Some say the heart is just like a wheel
When you bend it you can't mend it
But my love for you is like a sinking ship
And my heart is on that ship out in mid-ocean

The wheel is turning and you can't slow down
You can't let go and you can't hold on
You can't go back and you can't stand still
If the thunder don't get you then the lightning will

Won't you try just a little bit harder
Couldn't you try just a little bit more
"Got any nails?"
"No!"
"Got any flies?"

Well they tell me of a pie up in the sky
Waiting for me when I die
But between the day you're born and when you die
They never seem to hear even your cry

So as sure as the sun will shine
I'm gonna get my share now of what's mine
And then the harder they come, the harder they'll fall, one and all
Ooh, the harder they come, the harder they'll fall, one and all

Well, the oppressors are tryin' to keep me down
Tryin' to drive me underground
And they think that they have got the battle won
I say forgive them Lord, they know not what they've done

'Cos as sure as the sun will shine
I'm gonna get my share now of what's mine
And then the harder they come, the harder they'll fall, one and all
Ooh, the harder they come, harder they'll fall, one and all

Oh yeah, well oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah

But I'll keep on fighting for the things I want
Though I know that when you're dead you can't
But I'd rather be a free man in my grave
Then living as a puppet or a slave

So as sure as the sun will shine
I'm gonna get my share right now of what's mine
And then the harder they come, the harder they'll fall, one and all
Ooh, the harder they come, harder they'll fall, one and all
Yeah, the harder they come, the harder they'll fall, one and all

They're selling postcards of the hanging
They're painting the passports brown
The beauty parlor is filled with sailors
The circus is in town
Here comes the blind commissioner
They've got him in a trance
One hand is tied to the tight-rope walker
The other is in his pants
And the riot squad they're restless
They need somewhere to go
As Lady and I look out tonight
From Desolation Row.

Cinderella, she seems so easy
"It takes one to know one," she smiles
And puts her hands in her back pockets
Bette Davis style
And in comes Romeo, he's moaning
"You belong to Me I Believe"
And someone says, "You're in the wrong place, my friend
You better leave"
And the only sound that's left
After the ambulances go
Is Cinderella sweeping up
On Desolation Row.

Now the moon is almost hidden
The stars are beginning to hide
The fortunetelling lady
Has even taken all her things inside
All except for Cain and Abel
And the hunchback of Notre Dame
Everybody is making love
Or else expecting rain
And the Good Samaritan, he's dressing
He's getting ready for the show
He's going to the carnival tonight
On Desolation Row.
Now Ophelia, she's 'neath the window
For her I feel so afraid
On her twenty-second birthday
She already is an old maid
To her, death is quite romantic
She wears an iron vest
Her profession's her religion
Her sin is her lifelessness
And though her eyes are fixed upon
Noah's great rainbow
She spends her time peeking
Into Desolation Row.

Einstein, disguised as Robin Hood
With his memories in a trunk
Passed this way an hour ago
With his friend, a jealous monk
He looked so immaculately frightful
As he bummed a cigarette
Then he went off sniffing drainpipes
And reciting the alphabet
You would not think to look at him
But he was famous long ago
For playing the electric violin
On Desolation Row.

Dr. Filth, he keeps his world
Inside of a leather cup
But all his sexless patients
They're trying to blow it up
Now his nurse, some local loser
She's in charge of the cyanide hole
And she also keeps the cards that read
"Have Mercy on His Soul"
They all play on penny whistles
You can hear them blow
If you lean your head out far enough
From Desolation Row.
Across the street they've nailed the curtains
They're getting ready for the feast
The Phantom of the Opera
In a perfect image of a priest
They're spoonfeeding Casanova
To get him to feel more assured
Then they'll kill him with self-confidence
After poisoning him with words
And the Phantom's shouting to skinny girls
"Get outa here if you don't know"
Casanova is just being punished for going
To Desolation Row.

At midnight all the agents
And the superhuman crew
Come out and round up everyone
That knows more than they do
Then they bring them to the factory
Where the heart-attack machine
Is strapped across their shoulders
And then the kerosene
Is brought down from the castles
By insurance men who go
Check to see that nobody is escaping
To Desolation Row.

They be to Nero's Neptune
The Titanic sails at dawn
Everybody's shouting
"Which side are you on ?"
And Ezra Pound and T. S. Eliot
Fighting in the captain's tower
While calypso singers laugh at them
And fishermen hold flowers
Between the windows of the sea
Where lovely mermaids flow
And nobody has to think too much
About Desolation Row.
Yes, I received your letter yesterday
About the time the door knob broke
When you asked me how I was doing
Was that some kind of joke ?
All these people that you mention
Yes, I know them, they're quite lame
I had to rearrange their faces
And give them all another name
Right now I can't read too good
Don't send me no more letters no
Not unless you mail them
From Desolation Row
-- smell every flower --

And I say row, Jimmy row
Gonna get there?
I don't know
Seems a common way to go
Get down, row, row, row
row, row
I can't come down, it's plain to see.
I can't come down, I've been set free.
Who you are, and what you do,
don't make no difference to me.

Row, row, row your boat
Gently down the stream,
Merrily merrily, merrily, merrily
Life is but a dream

Row, row, row the boat
Gently to the shore,
If you see a lyin' bear
Don't forget to roar

Row, row, row your boat
Gently down the lake,
Don't stand up and rock the boat
That's a big mistake!

Row, row, row your boat
Gently down the stream,
Ha ha fooled ya all
I'm a submarine

Row, row, row your boat
Gently down the stream,
Merrily merrily, merrily, merrily
Life is but a dream
