It's called the mojo boogie
It's called the mojo boogie
You know the mojo boogie, begin to slide on down

I thought she was teachin' me a brand-new way
I said, gypsy tell me, tell me what to say

They even got the thing they call the mojo hand

They got the mojo boogie
They call that mojo boogie
You know that mojo boogie, begin to slide on down

Slide on down

I got me a mojo, man it sure is crazy
The gypsy forgot to teach me, just how to operate it
I went to a night club, I was squeezin' it tight
I know that was the cause of them people startin' to fight

It was the mojo boogie
Must have been that mojo boogie
It was that mojo boogie, begin to slide on down

Yeah it was the mojo boogie
I had the mojo boogie
It was that mojo boogie
Gotta be that mojo boogie
It was that mojo boogie, begin to slide on down
