Love Potion Number Nine

	  		Love Potion Number Nine:The Clovers. 
Top of the charts in 1959. 

#1. 
Am                         Dm 
I took my troubles down to Madame Ruth. 
Am                           Dm 
You know that Gypsy with the gold-capped tooth. 
C                       Am 
She's got a pad down on Thirty-Fourth and Vine, 
Dm                         E                  Am 
sellin' little bottles of, Love Potion Number Nine. 

#2. 
Am                      Dm 
I told her that I was a flop with chicks. 
Am                                Dm 
I've been this way since nineteen-fifty-six. 
    C                         Am 
She looked at my palm and she made a magic sign.. 
    Dm                       E                  Am 
She said, 'What you need is, Love Potion Number Nine.' 

Chorus: 
    Dm 
She bent down and turned around and gave me a wink. 
    B 
She said "I'm gonna mix it up right here in the sink." 
   Dm 
It smelled like turpentine, it looked like India Ink.. 
  E 
I held my nose, I closed my eyes, I took a drink. 

#3. 
Am                      Dm 
I didn't know if it was day or night. 
Am                     Dm 
I started kissin' everything in sight. 
    C                           Am 
But when I kissed a cop down on Thirty-Fourth and Vine.. 
   Dm                         E                  Am 
He broke my little bottle of, Love Potion Number Nine. 

#4. 
Am                      Dm 
I didn't know if it was day or night. 
Am                     Dm 
I started kissin' everything in sight. 
  C                        Am 
I had so much fun that I'm goin' back again.. 
  Dm                        E                  Am 
I wonder what happens with, Love Potion Number Ten? 

OUTRO: 
Dm                 Am     Dm                 Am 
Love Potion Number Nine...Love Potion Number Nine. 
Dm                 Am  B  Am G  Am 
Love Potion Number Ni..i..i..i..ine.
