Lyrics:

Evil Eye

Vs 1	I was walkin' down the street
	With the woman by my side
	A man come up to meet
	Givin' me the evil eye
	I said "Hey mister don't ya do dat
	Just keep on walkin' by".

Vs 2	But the dude, he keeps on comin',
	Look me up and down real hard
	I can tell his blood's a runnin'
	I can see his face is scarred
	But I don't give no ground up no,
	Got a shield against the harm.

Ch	Don't you give me no evil eye
	I got a blue bead on a chain
	You can give me dat evil eye
	But I got a blue bead on a chain
	Aní if you shoot me that evil eye,
	I gonna shoot it right back again.

	[Solos (Ch)]

Vs 3	You know the power of the Evil Eye,
	Is strong and ancient, so Iím told
	Itíll stop you in your tracks,
	It will make your blood run cold,
	Your protected from the Evil Eye,
	By the gris-gris that you hold.

	[chorus]

Ch	Don't you give me no evil eye
	I got a red string on my wrist
	You can give me dat evil eye
	But I got a red string on my wrist
	You can stick it in your evil eye,
	In my world you don't exist.
