"I Put a Spell on You" is a 1956 song by the late Jalacy "Screamin' Jay" Hawkins. The song was later used in the 1993 Disney fantasy comedy film Hocus Pocus, featuring the witches Mary, Sarah, and Winifred "Winnie" Sanderson as they perform it to hypnotize a group of people.

The Hocus Pocus version was performed by Winifred's actress Bette Midler, Mary's actress Kathy Najimy, and Sarah's actress Sarah Jessica Parker.

Lyrics

I put a spell on you
Because you're mine
You better stop the things you do
I tell ya I ain't lyin'

I ain't lyin'
You know I can't stand it
You're runnin' around
You know better daddy
I can't stand it 'cause you put me down
Oh no

I put a spell on you
Because you're mine

You know I love you
I love you
I love you
I love you anyhow
And I don't care if you don't want me
I'm yours right now

I put a spell on you
Because you're mine

You know I can't stand it
Your running around
You know baby daddy
I can't stand it
'Cause you put me down

Ooh, I put a spell on you
Because you're mine
Because you're mine

Because you're mine
Oh yeah

I put a spell on you
And now you're mine
You can't stop the things I do
I ain't lyin'

It's been three hundred years
Right down to the day
Now the witch is back
And there's hell to pay

I put a spell on you
And now you're mine!

[Hello, Salem!
My name's Winifred!
What's yours?]

I put a spell on you
And now you're gone
(Gone gone gone, so long!)
My whammy fell on you
And it was strong
(So strong, so strong, so strong!)

Your wretched little lives
Have all been cursed
'Cause of all the witches working
I'm the worst

I put a spell on you
And now you're mine

(Watch out! Watch out! Watch out! Watch out!)

If you don't believe
You better get superstitious
Ask my sisters
"Ooh, she's vicious!"

I put a spell on you...
I put a spell on you...
Sisters!

Ah say ento pi alpha mabi upendi
(Ah say ento pi alpha mabi upendi)
In comma coriyama
(In comma coriyama)

Hey, hey, high, high
Say bye-bye!
Bye bye!
