Teddy Pendergrass - Voodoo Lyrics

Girl I can't wait, to come home to you
Can't concentrate on my job, cause I'm in the mood
See lately I've had, a one track mind
See its you, and you again
Friends think I'm wasting my time
And oh!
I've always been that kind of man
In control of my life
But girl ever since, ever since you came around
See I wanna take care of you
And make you my wife

It must be that
The voodoo that you do
That keeps me loving you
I gotta say
I like it baby

See my friends, see they call me on the phone and say Ted (Teddy)
Say let's go out, do you wanna play?
But I find myself wanting, to spend all my time with you
And I don't even care, what they're talking about
And oh!
Something strange has taken over me
And baby! Baby! I really really like it, yeah
See I've never felt, this way before
Girl that's for sure
And I don't need, I don't want no cure

It must be that
The voodoo that you do
That keeps me loving you (keeps me so in love)
I gotta say, I like it baby...
It must be that
The voodoo that you do
That keeps me loving you
(Sometimes your love just wants to make me stay)
I like it baby
Wanna say oh...
Come on and do to me what you did last night
I like it baby, I love it baby
Must be that (its gotta be)
The voodoo (the voodoo)
That you do (that you do)
That keeps me (so in love)
Loving you (in love with you girl)
I gotta tell ya, I love it baby...
Said I love it, I love it, I love it child

  1. Timberly Priest

    Teddy and Gerald did the damn thing with this one!

  2. Louisiana-Creole Brotha

    I remember when I was a kid/teenager my mom use to sit at the bar at our house, drink and play Teddy Pendergrass songs..

    At that time I hated this music, but now I love it..

  3. Junior Mitchell

    The best r&b artist ever he gets you in the mode even if you don't want to.

  4. Myles Mattison

    Knowing tha TP was not what he use to be when he recorded this is a testimony within itself. The richness in his voice said it all. TP & GL, Thank you for sharing your beautiful gift with the world. It was a pleasure sharing your stage and allowing me to hold that groove.

  5. Daniel Burns

    this song went to #25 on the R&B charts in 1993!!!

  6. Tas J

    This song was written by the REAL TEDDY BEAR 🧸...Gerald Levert. Can you hear the influence, especially the backup singers.

    When I was 11 for whatsoever reason my dad/brother allowed me to eat his lady as he stood by her . Later he tried to undo the "Voodoo" by smoking a cigarette on his job . It has been nearly 27 years since a similar "Voodoo" play , but I simply do not have that .

  17. Buford Burks

    My brother/dad and I were spiritual conjoined twins . Through me He could return to Wenonah area after 50 years . So I was told in Fall 1989 he was shown a White lady to be my next wife , so he took me down to her . Others fail to accept without him that play is out . So "five" years later on Iron Bowl Night 1994 , I got "Bear" caught .
