Love Potion #9
Words & Music:
Jerry Leiber & Mike Stoller
I took my troubles down to Madame Ruth.
You know that gypsy with the gold-capped tooth.
C Am Dm
She's got a pad down at 34th and Vine.
Selling little bottles of Love Potion Number Nine.
I told her that I was a flop with chicks.
I'd been this way since 1956.
She looked at my palm and she made a magic sign.
She said, "What you need is Love Potion Number Nine."
She bent down and turned around and gave me a wink.
She said, "I'm gonna make it up right here in the sink."
It smelled like turpentine and looked like India ink.
I held my nose, I closed my eyes, I took a drink.
I didn't know if it was day or night.
I started kissing everything in sight.
But when I kissed the cop down at 34th and Vine.
He broke my little bottle of Love Potion Number Nine.
Love Potion Number Nine. [3x]
