lyrics

I love these drunken tourists with their cheap souvenirs
They turned my town into a house of horrors long before the Katrina years
My name is miss Cecile, I run a hurricane stand
I use my family's secret recipe, send you off to Dreamland

It's bitch's brew, bittersweet
Pairs well with gator tail and chicken feet
Witch's stew down in the glade
Wing of bat, tongue of toad with just a pinch of nightshade

This here's my cousin Roofie, all ham hock and pork loin
Dumb as a doorknob, but he's chicory strong, happy as Hell to take your coin
Keeps his good eye on you amateurs in your two dollar tee shirt
I'm the brains, he's the brawn making sure nobody gets hurt

It's bitch's brew, bittersweet
Pairs well with gator tail and chicken feet
Haitian hoodoo down in the glade
Wing of bat, tongue of toad with just a pinch of nightshade

Belladonna going to show you the way home
The angel's trumpets will be blowin'
My ancestors worked the sugar trade
Manning the milk stools of the deadly nightshade

I love these drunken tourists posing for Polaroids
I take their money, shake their hands, pump 'em full of alkaloids
My name is miss Cecile, I run a hurricane stand
I use my family's secret recipe, send you off to Dreamland

It's bitch's brew, bittersweet
Pairs well with gator tail and chicken feet
A sip or two down in the glade
Wing of bat, tongue of toad with just a pinch of nightshade

My name is miss Cecile, I run a hurricane stand
I use my family's secret recipe, send you off to Dreamland
