Lyrics: “I’d Rather Be Burned as a Witch” by Eartha Kitt

Seems like I?m on a roll in the lyrics department. Searching for the text file I?d posted previously, I came across no less than thirty-three other scarce lyric files. I don?t plan to post them all here, or at least, not all at once, but I couldn?t resist the Catwoman herself, Eartha Kitt. (Yes, I know there’re others–Julie Newmar, Halle Berry, etc) This gorgeous chanteuse exudes sensuality and independence. There would be no way I could avoid listing her among my favorites.

I?d Rather Be Burned as a Witch

They say that I’m a witch
And that I weave a spell.
Well…
I use my eyes to invite you,
My lips to delight you
And all the charms of the feminine wiles to excite you
They say that I’m a witch,
and that I weave a spell
Well, I’ll be a son of a—
I don’t know what
Wellll
Let me tell you brother
I’d rather be burned as a witch,
than never be burned at all.

I use my songs to entice you
with curses advise you
and all of my bags of tricks
to choose and rise you

They say that I’m a witch,
and that I weave a spell
Well, I’ll be a son of a—
I don’t know what
Welllll
Let me tell you brother
I’d rather be burned as a witch,
than never be burned at all.

You want a gal who will be your pal,
who would never look at another
who would be good and true
and take care of you?
Sorry, you want another.

I use my charms to undo you
my arms to unglue you
and all of the hex
of the weaker sex
to voodoo you

Yes, they say that I’m a witch and that I weave a spell
Well, I’ll be a son of a?
I don’t know what
Wellll
Let me tell you brother
I’d rather be burned as a witch,
than never be burned at all.

If you want a love
who’s a turtle dove
who will bring you life’s little joys
Who is sweet and shy
with a gentle eye
I’ll take them in with the boys

I use my eyes to invite you,
My lips to delight you
and you never can tell
when I use my teeth to bite you
They say that I’m a witch,
and that I weave a spell
Well, I’ll be a son of a?
I don’t know what
Wellll
Let me tell you brother
I’d rather be burned as a witch,
than never be burned at all.
