Those fingers in my hair
That sly come-hither stare
Strips my conscience bare
And I've got no defense for it
That heat is too intense for it
What good would common sense for it do?
'Cause it's witchcraft, wicked witchcraft
And although I know it's strictly taboo
When you arouse the need in me
My heart says "Yes, indeed" in me
"Proceed with what you're leadin' me to"
It's such an ancient pitch
But one I'd never switch
'Cause there's no nicer witch than you
Patricia Barber Quartet
"When you hear music, after it's over, it's gone in the air.
You can never capture it again. "
