Across the land, I'm spoken of
Wise as a snake, tame as a dove
Just like a wolf in sheep clothes
Shake the dust off before I go

I'm your medicine man
I'm your medicine man

I walk the land never seen before
I'm on a mission, conquistador
I'll be your slave, I'll be your king
I'll be what you want, be your everything

I'm your medicine man
I'm your medicine man
I'm your medicine man
I'm your medicine man

Got juju beads and a mojo drum
Got a whole lot more where that come from
I'll make a sign, I'll cross your head
Make you shake and dance gonna raise the dead

I'm your medicine man
I'm your medicine man
I'm your medicine man
I'm your medicine man

I'll take your pulse, I'll fix your health
Get what you need to save yourself
Might lose your house, might lose your home
But I'll give you back more than you have known
Put you in the black, gonna shake your bones
Your healer, your dealer, your only one

I'm your medicine man
I'm your medicine man
I'm your medicine man
I'm your medicine man

I'm your medicine man
I'm your medicine man
I'm your medicine man
I'm your medicine man
