Dark Lady Lyrics

Artist: Cher


The fortune queen of New Orleans,
Was brushing her cat in her black limousine
On the backseat were scratches from
The marks of men her fortune she had won
Couldn't see through the tinted glass,
She said "Home James" and he hit the gas
I Followed her to some darkened room,
She took my money, she said "I'll be with you soon"

Dark Lady laughed and danced and lit the candles one by one
Danced to her gypsy music till her brew was done
Dark Lady played back magic till the clock struck on the twelve
She told me more about me than I knew myself

She dealt two cards, a queen and a three
And mumbled some words that were so strange to me
Then she turned up a two-eyed jack,
My eyes saw red but the card still stayed black
She said the man you love is secretly true
To someone else who is very close to you
My advice is that you leave this place,
Never come back and forget you ever saw my face

Dark Lady laughed and danced and lit the candles one by one
Danced to her gypsy music till her brew was done
Dark Lady played back magic till the clock struck on the twelve
She told me more about me than I knew myself

So I ran home and crawled in my bed,
I couldn't sleep because of all the things she said
Then I remembered her strange perfume,
And how I smelled it was in my own room!
So I sneaked back and caught her with my man,
Laughing and kissing till they saw the gun in my hand
The next thing I knew they were dead on the floor,
Dark Lady would never turn a card up anymore

Dark Lady laughed and danced and lit the candles one by one
Danced to her gypsy music till her brew was done
Dark Lady played back magic till the clock struck on the twelve
She told me more about me than I knew myself

It's not "played back magic", it's "played black magic", I think.

I love Cher! Her music is amazing. My favorite song she did was "Song for the Lonely". It is still my favorite today! I love you Cher!

Great song. I taped it off the radio over 30 years ago, but this is the first time I got all the lyrics.
by michelavedon on 8/20/2009 3:09am
This is a wonderful, moving dramatic monologue set to music. It is stirring and ONLY Cher could have sung it with such abandon.

very nice song i love cher
by Rose on 11/4/2010 2:33pm
Played "back" magic is not only incorrect ("black" as posted is) but the lyrics in this line, "Then I remembered her strange perfume...how I smelled it ONCE in my own room"...."once" not "was"...
I also don't believe the line regarding "her fortune she had won" is correct, either...
by Allie on 5/27/2011 9:23am
Nothing else to say. CHer is just the best there is.
by rong on 6/18/2011 7:14am
not varry nice to kill id say
by Carmine on 7/22/2011 12:22am
rong, its a song get over it, cher took the interest of some people to show that if you misuse magic or use black magic things could go wrong. so "not very nice to kill id say" good God its a song get over it!

This song is haunting and mystical.I listened to it 3 x and it made me sad with tears welling up in my eyes. Then I figured it out. It is because all the minors in this song.It sets a mood.This song is genius. I have to keep playing it because it is addictive.
