Words & Music by Carolyn Leigh & Cy Coleman
Recorded by Frank Sinatra, 1963

Those fingers in my hair,

That sly, come hither stare

     Em7                  A7           D9
That strips my conscience bare - it's witchcraft.

And I've got no defense for it;

The heat is too intense for it -

Dm                      E7+         AM7
What good would common sense for it do?

  A7         D9          D6     D         A7sus4     A7
'Cause it's witchcraft, wicked witchcraft,

         D9      D6        D9         D6     G#m7-5    C#7
And although I know it's strictly taboo,

When you arouse a need in me,

My heart says, "Yes, indeed!" to me -

Em            Em+5         Em7      A7
Proceed with what you're leading me to.

It's such an ancient pitch,

But one I wouldn't switch,

Em7              A7sus4  A7        D    Cdim  G/B  A7
'Cause there's no nicer witch than you.

(Second time)

Em7              A7sus4  A7        D    Gdim    D
'Cause there's no nicer witch than you.
