Lyrics

Well I always wanted to be a big rock star
Just like Jimmy, Eric, and Jimi
Playin on the big stage
Drivin all the girls crazy
On Yeah!
Well I just need a little bit of what they got

Mojo
Got to get a mojo
Mojo
Can you give me just a mojo
Mojo
Yeah I gotta have a mojo

So I headed down to New Orleans to meet the masters
They told me I had to meet the queen
Miss Jolene
Oh Yeah!
Well she saw perfumed in liquor and tobacco
And I said

Well she read some voodoo from a book
Jumped around and shook
Took twenty dollars and some leaves
Oh Yeah!
She said Now get outta here boy and don't worry.

Turn on the Yardbirds
Disconnect the phone
Shakin' my stick and rollin' my bones
Stickin' chicken feathers in a little yellow cone
Yeah, Yeah!

Now I'm on the big stage
Electricity flows through my vains
The boys are on the killin' floor
And all the girls are screaming out for more
Oh Yeah!

Turn on the Yardbirds
Disconnect the phone
Shakin' my stick and rollin' my bones
Stickin' chicken feathers in a little yellow cone
Yeah, Yeah!

Five little girls standing in a row
Waiting back stage after the show
I'm gonna take 'em out
Yeah, we're gonna have a go
Yeah, Yeah!

If I recall correctly Dan came up with the initial riff and I took it from there. This is a tribute to the Yardbirds. One of my all time favorite bands, Dan's as well. Harry helps on the oh-yeah vocals
