Description
I did this last year, but too late for Halloween, which someone suggested I should have entered it for. Also another commented it was a bit 'Trebley', so I put it though Ozone and tweaked and I think this is a better more rounded sound, M

Lyrics
“Come back Billie”

1“Come back Billie”, I heard Momma cry,
“That girl will eat you up, I’m gonna tell you no lie,
Don’t believe her words; don’t listen to her song,
You need to get back home, where you belong”,
Shadows dance as she plays her game,
She’s a Voodoo woman and she has no shame
Listen now, if she calls your name,
For the things you’ll do, there’s gonna be no blame,
Her spell is cast, it will always last,
‘Till she’s had her way and love’s been tamed.
She’ll steal your heart and your mind as well,
Everybody says that she came from Hell.
Whether right or whether wrong,
When you hear her song, you’ll know you belong.
(Spoken)
Any night when the Moon is high… you can hear her call
With a haunting cry…..She dances round a red hot flame,
She’s always calling out… callin’ out…. Somebody’s name,
Yeahhhh!... Somebody’s name..Yep Yep I can hear it now…Yep yep I can hear it now.
Instrumental.
2“Come back Billie”, I heard Momma cry,
“That girl will eat you up, I’m gonna tell you no lie,
Don’t believe her words; don’t listen to her song,
You need to get back home, where you belong”,
She’ll drive you crazy, real crazy, if you do what she asks you to do….
Ooooh, crazy lady….. Ooooh, crazy lady…..

Voodoo woman get outa’ my life,
what ya’ doin’ with people it just ain’t right,
If it takes my last breath, I just gotta say,
Stop breakin’ people’s hearts an’ throwin’ ‘em away,
Voodoo woman don’t sing your song,
You’re breakin’ people’s hearts and it’s just plain wrong,

“Come back Billie” I heard Momma say,
But I didn’t pay attention, so I had to pay,
The voodoo woman had me in her spell.
I thought I’d gone to Heaven, but it turned out Hell.

Come Back Billie
I really dig this grooving beat you got going on here Maurice - very easy to get caught up in this one. I couldn't stop moving all the way through - very fun. I like your vocal performance - it almost has a rhythm of its own. Your spoken part in the middle reminds me of Vincent Price in Michael Jackson's Thriller - spooky!

Enjoyed listening to this Maurice - thanks! And Happy Halloween!

Thanks Sig
Glad it got you swaying along and yes the vocal certainly helps with the beat especially in the part "Till she's had her way, and love's been tamed', when it was sung slightly on the off beat. The Vincent Price thing haunts me too LOL I was on a TV game show some years ago where the Host compared me visually to him, cheers M
