The Voodoo Walk

Ray Davies, released on Working Man's Café (solo) © Davray Music Ltd. 2007

.

When the heat stops you sleeping at night

And the dead leaves rustle around

And the calmness keeps you awake

And you pace around the room

.

That's the zombie in you manifesting itself

And you cry out loud and nobody can help

And it's a one way sign to the gates of hell

And there's no way back

No, there's no way back

Ain't no wonder you can't sleep at night

.

You just heard the voodoo call

So you pace around, do the zombie crawl

And you shuffle around in the prison cell

Doing the voodoo walk, dancing with yourself

And you just can't blame

The zombie inside of you

.

Or the voodoo curse hanging over you

Or the zombie walk, like an old soft shoe

Where the voodoo man's talking inside of you

Doing the voodoo walk, voodoo walk

Ain't no evil spirits round here

Or zombie people or demons with pointy ears

Ain't no spooks waiting to appear

.

Doing the voodoo walk

Talking the voodoo talk

Or the voodoo howl

Doing the voodoo walk, voodoo walk

.

Voodoo walk, voodoo walk

Doing the voodoo walk, voodoo walk

.

And the days are like living in hell

You're not well but you just did it to yourself

You know the look

You can tell by that haunted stare

You're never quite here

You're never quite really there

And the cemetery's empty

'Cos the zombies are everywhere

.

Doing the voodoo walk

Talking the voodoo talk

Or the voodoo howl

Doing the voodoo walk

.

Doing the voodoo walk

Talking the voodoo talk

Or the voodoo growl

Doing the voodoo walk
