Friends on the Other Side Lyrics

Dr. Facilier: Don’t you disrespect me, little man
Don’t you derogate or deride
You’re in my world now, not your world
And I got friends on the other side
Voodoo Spirits: (He’s got friends on the other side)

Dr. Facilier: That’s an echo gentlemen.
Just a little something we have here in Louisiana
A little parlor trick. Don’t worry.

Sit down at my table
Put your minds at ease
If you relax it’ll enable me to do
Anything I please

I can read your future
I can change it ’round some, too
I’ll look deep into your heart and soul
(You do have a soul, don’t you, Lawrence?)
Make your wildest dreams come true

I got voodoo, I got hoodoo,
I got things I ain’t even tried
And I got friends on the other side
Voodoo Spirits: (He’s got friends on the other side)

Dr. Facilier: The cards, the cards, the cards will tell
The past, the present, and the future as well
The cards, the cards, just take three
Take a little trip into your future with me
Voodoo Spirits: Are you ready

Dr. Facilier: Now you, young man, are from across the sea
You come from two long lines of royalty
I’m a royal myself, on my mother’s side
Your lifestyle’s high, but your funds are low
You need to marry a lil’ hunny whose daddy got dough
Mom and Dad cut you off, huh playboy?
Naveen: Eh, sad but true.

Dr. Facilier: Now y’all gotta get hitched but hitchin’ ties you down
You just wanna be free, hop from place to place
But freedom takes green

It’s the green, it’s the green
It’s the green you need
And when I looked into your future
It’s the green that I seen

On you little man, I don’t want to waste much time
You’ve been pushed ’round all your life
You’ve been pushed ’round by your mother
And your sister and your brother.
And if you was married you’d be pushed around by your wife
But in your future, for you I see
Is exactly the man you always wanted to be

Shake my hand, c’mon on boys
Won’t you shake a poor sinner’s hand
(both Naveen and Lawrence shake Facilier’s hands)
Are you ready?
Voodoo Spirits: (Are you ready?)

Dr. Facilier: Are you ready?
Transformation Central
Voodoo Spirits: (Transformation Central)

Dr. Facilier: Reformation Central
Voodoo Spirits: Reformation central!

Dr. Facilier: Transmogrification Central
Naveen: Ow!
Dr. Facilier: Can you feel it?

You’re changing, you’re changing,
You’re changing all right
I hope you’re satisfied
But if you ain’t, don’t blame me
You can blame my friends on the other side
Ha, ha, ha

Voodoo Spirits: (You got what you wanted)
(But you lost what you had)
