Cher - Dark Lady Lyrics




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"

[Chorus:]
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 black 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

[Chorus]

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

[Chorus]

    Iconic, will live on forever.

  7. buggabuggaboy

    She sounds like a goat. She can barely sing and she is so foul looking. People should get off it. She is so overrated.

  8. DoABarrelRoll

    Heard this on the radio- hella hard to track down as ‘song from 50-80s about a Gypsy’ doesn’t narrow it down ha!

  9. deborah vancleave

    Had this song in my head all night long

  10. Jeff Younger

    I am shocked and amazed that ANYONE likes this garbage... I love Cher but this is her low point professionally. It actually broke my Cheeze-O-Meter...

  11. Antonio Tadeu Campioto

    1974, ano incrível. Só mega sucessos. Cher musa dos anos 60. Não volta mais este tempo.

  12. Veronica Evans

    Best Teeth

  13. ladylacy64

    For me Cher, Tina, and Aretha are legends that will never be surpassed.

  14. Joshua David Felter

    One of my favorite Cher songs! I love blasting this song up!

  15. Joshua Brooks

    That line "She told me more about me then I knew myself" is so weird to me.

  16. Lisa Weiner

    Cher is just awesome!👍👍

  17. Kitty Ceres

    Goddess of the Moon.

  18. Kitty Ceres

    Cher, you're gorgeous, MA.

  19. Gerard Holguin

    She is actually singing this! No lip synching! This is the way it's done by a true talent!

  20. Tøxïc Dëvïl

    One of my fav songs.

  21. Curtis Chisholm

    Any straight black males, mid 30's living in nyc listening to this? I think Im the last one!

  22. DJ Sonic

    I had bought a box of 45 records and this song was in it. I had never heard this song before. Played it for the first time and fell in love with it.

  23. Lisa Morales

    love me some cher i feel her songs st8 to mi heart

  24. Lonnie Appleby

    Maybe it’s been answered, but why did she change for this show and say a two and a three unlike the queen and the three that appear in the original lyrics? This queen doesn’t understand if it was done to be politically correct even back in the 70s LOL

  25. John Smith

    seems like every show used those white microphones back then. They used to also stick a radio antenna into the end of it to make it look like it was wireless. (it wasn't. just used as a prop)

  26. The Starman

    A good song

  27. Caleb Moore

    A forgotten Halloween anthem

  28. Chewboiye

    I'm having a seizure watching the jewels heckling explode with light

  29. Asthetickiwi

    She killed them don't mess with her

    I Love song & why is Cher music Listening This 2019 Song is Dark with Music Dark Lady

  56. TTIICCUUSS

    Antes que Madonna, antes que Lady Gaga, Cher, siempre espectacular, la madre del show. Una historia tragicómica, una melodía dramática y una puesta en escena sencilla y a la vez fastuosa: Dark Lady. Inolvidable

  57. marlies beushausen

    Cher is like drowning in mystery, and take in , she dressed up for it, selfdependet in what is.

  58. Mike Jenkins

    Hi Jordan,look at cher,dark lady,take your mind off the flood,screen,mjlove you cher,

  59. Rod Kelly

    In Cher we trust

  60. Peter Wallace

    Oh heavens above. Do you know how many 'old men's hearts you are still 💔. We don't need a 🔫 held to our head either for a date........and would lay proposals at your feet for the love of Cher. 💘💞💕👠💋👠💕💞💘🇦🇺

  61. The Starman

    Classic

  62. patricia gilligan

    Cher IS a Music ICON I think but is she also a Dark LADY? I am told she had aRib Removal operation when Young to add curvature to an essentially Long Narrow Body? I am also Told she IS a CASTRATI From baby and although I love her voice I guess it is in the lower register Range for female? I am also told that All are rewarded with abundant FAME and FORTUNE for serving the OCCULT Music Industry that is a Religious CULT that Worships a DARK Diety or God? do you think at least some of this info is Correct or POSSIBLE?

  63. alpha wolf

    Listening to this on TV now!

  64. Arlene Bowers

    Cher is Cher! There has NEVER been a singer that can touch her! So beautiful and talented. Have loved her since the 60's and still do today. Many artists have tried to emulate her. She remains unique! So much talent!

  65. Mag Magnet

    HELLZ YEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Im glad the music video leaves it to imagination! I REALLY WANNA TURN THIS INTO A FUN CARTOON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  66. michael bertsch

  74. Hans Sjöberg

    Gröna Lund. 70--tal någon gång. Ett spel. Man kunde vinna singlar. Jag vann inte. Men dom spelade den här hela tiden och jag var helt hypnotiserad.

  75. WD Harris

    I've never really understood this song......Did they share a lover?

    bird10498

    Her lover was screwing the gypsie lady so she shot them both. No?

  76. Scott Nyob

    Think anyone will remember...or care about Lady G when SHE is 70???
    Cher is timeless.

    Fran Smith

    Scott Nyob Hell No!

    Alex Selinow

    Spot friggin on! Today's performers lack the iconic quality that make someone like Cher timeless.

    Alexandre Arena Filho

    are you talking about Gaga? what would Cher think of her fans taking down an artist like Lady Gaga? I would hope Cher fans would be more classy

    Alex Selinow

    @Alexandre Arena Filho I would think Gaga would be more classy. Get used to being disappointed.

    Brielle C

    There’s really no need to put down one artist to try and show your support for another, especially since Gaga is extremely talented and very vocal about being inspired by Cher. They are both incredibly creative and talented and will be remembered for a long time.

  77. Cary Groneveldt

    🎵She dealt out the cards🎵
    🎵A Queen & a three🎵
    🎵I said, "Holy shit, that's twenty-one for me!"🎵

    🎵The dealer said "No!",🎵
    🎵and picked up the cards.🎵
    🎵The next thing I knew🎵
    🎵the security guys beat me up🎵

    OK, so it doesn't rhyme.
    Whaddaya want for nothing: rrrrrrrrubber biscuit?

  78. Gayle Bertinelli

    I always loved Cher's music. Go Bob Mackie with her outfits

  79. Hugo Schnauzer

    That key change at 2:00 <3

  80. Nancy Aylward

  81. Cheryl bois

    what a talent and voice

  82. Gayle Bertinelli

    Love every song Cher sings.

  83. April brannon

    so i"m not the only one that has listened recently?!

  84. April brannon

    This would still be a good production song.

  85. April brannon

    it took me a while to find this song because it's my favorite old one

  86. Cracks by me

    I love the fact that the lyrics to this song is a story. And it is really good.

  87. Ginagina Lina

    She is off a movie

  88. Fatima Jones

    Cher was fierce back in her heyday.

  89. sailorcameron

    AMAZING

  90. David Green

    Cher.she.is.still. Nu Amber one

  91. Victoria Jean

    I was crazy about her when I was young....... love love this song, and half breed

  92. John Rotuno

    I had this song stuck in my head for 2 days so I needed to see this. Love me some Cher. A bona-fide legend but for those arguing the Cher vs Gaga subject, give it up! Gaga is immensely more talented as a singer, songwriter, musician and stage performer.. Put down the nostalgia glasses and it's obvious.

    Karen A

    John Rotuno but Cher could out dress and out sing Gaga

  93. Kylo Ren

    1:53 the way she handles the mic.

  94. spider23ranger

    Watched this program every week. This would be the last hit Cher performed on the Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour.

  95. Sheri lou Davis

    She is always will be sexy and cool and so kind love that g friend
