DOCTOR VELVET
(James 'Doc' Starkes)
THE NITE RIDERS (APOLLO 466, 1955)

He's got roots, herbs, black dust and mojo
Don't let him sprinkle that stuff around your door
Take heat all you cats that don't believe
I got ruby dust up my sleeve
I can cure your blues from your head to your toe
Yeah, sprinkle that stuff all around your door
He's got roots, herbs, black dust and mojo
Don't let him sprinkle that stuff around your door

If your girl's done something to make you weep
I got something to make her talk in her sleep
I got something that will cure your sorrows
I make you hit the number, hit the number tomorrow
He's got roots, herbs, black dust and mojo
Don't let him sprinkle that stuff around your door

Don't laugh you fool, don't laugh at me
Well, it's I, Doctor Velvet, that your gal came to see
(Oh you're the one)
I bet you one thing, you won't be there no more
She'll sprinkle that stuff around your door

He's got roots, herbs, black dust and mojo
Don't let him sprinkle that stuff around your door
I got roots, herbs, ruby dust
I'll make amends, so you won't even rust
I'll tell you something if you wanna know
I'll make you even wanna come back for more
That's why they call him Doctor Velvet
That's me!
