ALEX CHILTON
"The Oogum Boogum Song"
(Alfred J. Smith)

Oogum, oogum, boogum, boogum, boogum,
Now, baby, your castin' your spell on me,
I-I say, "Oogum, oogum, boogum, boogum, boogum,
Now, baby, your castin' you're spell on me."
You got me doin' funny things like a clown,
Just a-look at me.

When you wear your high-heeled boots,
With your hip hugger suit, huh!
It's all right, you're outta sight.
An' you wear that cute mini skirt,
With yore brother's sloppy shirt, huh!
I admit it, girl, that I can dig it.

An'-a I says, oogum, oogum, boogum, boogum, boogum,
Now, baby, you're castin' your spell on me.
I say, "Oogum, oogum, boogum, boogum, boogum,
Now, baby, you're castin' your spell on me."
You got me doin' funny things like a clown,
Just a-look at me.

When you wear your bell-bottom pants,
I just stand there in a trance, huh!
I can't move, you're in the groove.
Would you believe little girl,
That a-I'm crazy 'bout you? Huh!
Now goin' with your bad self.

Ooo-ooo, ooo-hoo, now, mercy, mercy on me.
Huh! All right.

When you wear those big earrings,
Long hair, an' things-a.
You got style, girl, that shore is wild.
An' you wear that cute trench coat,
An' you're standin' an' posin'.
You got soul, you got too much soul.

I just says, "Took out the ooos there,
Took out the boos there,
Took out the boo,
Now, castin' your spell on me."
But I says, "Took out the ooos there,
[Fade.]
Took out the boos there,
Took out the boo.
Now castin' your spell on me."
I say, "Took out the ooos there,
Took out the boos there..."
