“The songs are so good.”  
— NEXT Magazine


They know the magic in Malaysia.

They've seen it work in old Peru.

It’s traveled five out of the seven seas,

From Mazatlán to tiny Timbuktu.


Its spell can have more power than any charm by far.

I’ll share its secrets with you, Karen,

Given things the way they are.


There’s a tradition in the South Seas,

Far over Fiji way,

A Polynesian superstition

To chase the blues away.


When hopes are draggin’

And smiles are laggin’

And heads are saggin’ low,

The natives seek a higher power

‘Cause in their hearts they know


When you call the Monsoopeechu Voodoo,

Monsoopeechu Voodoo call to you.

There’s a magic deep within the voodoo

And there’s magic deep inside of you.


All the strength you need,

All the beauty too,

Both gifts are like a seed that grows and grows inside of you.


So, if it's laughter that you're missin'

'Cause skies have turned to gray,

Just close your eyes and give a listen —

And soon the music play.


With ukes a-strummin’

And bongos drummin’,

Your heart will hum along.

Raise up your spirits in the sunlight

To dance and sing this song.


And soon you’ll wiggle like a fig’ll

When a wicked wind comes whippin’ through,

And then the wiggle makes you giggle.

That’s the magic that the voodoo do...



When you call the Monsoopeechu Voodoo,

Monsoopeechu Voodoo call to you

There’s a magic deep within the voodoo —

And a magic deep inside of you!


So do like-a me...

I’ll do like you do.

And we’ll duet both the same.

Brighten your day.

That is the way

The Monsoopeechu Voodoo teach to you.
