Black Magic Lyrics

"Black Magic"

[Lyrics - King; Music - Hanneman, King]

Cursed
Black magic night
We've been struck down
Down in this Hell
Spells surround me day and night
Stricken by the force of evil light
The force of evil light

Cast
Under his...

    It's about you being shy and not being confident but then you find your 'Secret Potion' which I confidence so basically it's a message to just be yourself and people will love you for who you are

    I really can't believe nearly everyone in the comments think this song is about sex with black men. It's clearly not the only black I get in it is black magic in the Witch way. The lyrics are actually self explanatory if you open your ears and listen to them. The song is about empowering women to live confidently. Little Mix's Leigh-Anne Pinnock said: "The message of 'Black Magic' is, basically, we are the girls with the secret potion and we're going to give it to all the other girls that want to get the man they want to get." Leigh-Annes words not mine. If you listen to the lyrics not onces does it mention or reference black men. It starts of saying. Plus my comments are in brackets. All the girls are knocking on my door. Wanna know what it is that make the boy's want more. Is your lover playing on your side. Said he loves you but he ain't got time. Here's the answer come and get it at a knock down price. (Saying I have a spell I'll give to you for a cheap price.)Full of honey to make him sweet. (Meaning that's one of the spells ingredients it's made of.) Crystal balling to make him see come and get it while you've still got time hey. As he needs reminding. What he's been missing so come and get it while you still got time. ( Go get the spell self explanatory.) Hey. Get your boy on his knees and repeat after me, say, Take a sip from the secret potion I'll make you fall in love for a spell that can't be broken one drop should be enough. Boy you belong to me I got the recipe and it's called black magic. ( Self explanatory again get him on his knees and repeat my spell to him and it's certainly doesn't mean give me oral sex lol. Like one person replied.) Take a sip from my secret potion and this spell can't be broken It'll keep you up all night. (With this being the only reference in the song that implies sex being it'll keep you up all night.) Boy you belong to me I got the recipe and it's called black magic. Everything in the song is self explanatory we ith absolutely no references to having sex with a black man. It sounds to me someone has jumped the gun with their reply and everyone else not knowing the true meaning of the song has believed that reply. Lol

    This whole time, I thought they were singing about casting some Harry Potter magic but when I looked at the lyrics, I saw that it looks like it could be about ladies stealing another lady’s guy.

    It's a song about the woman's desire for a large black man, her "tall black magic". She wants him to perform cunnilingus on her because she is excited and "full of honey" (the lines about "get your boy his knees" and "take a sip from the secret potion.") Then she will "keep you up all night" - the meaning of this is obvious. The true meaning of the song is quite subliminal, but it's not too hard to figure out at all.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    It;s about how there is this girl that has a "potion" (most likely meaning her good looks or personality) and how she stole another girl's man and made him fall in love with him, therefore making the guy leave his girl to go to the other.
    Pretty stupid, if you ask me. Just get a guy yourself. It's not that hard most of the time.
