David Zarkin asked "Who did Love Potion #9?" Potion

The answer, of course, is THE CLOVERS back in 1959 If you want to sing along, here are the lyrics.

Potion #9
The Clovers – 1959


I took my troubles down to Madam Rue
You know,
that gypsy with the gold-capped tooth
She’s got a place down on 34th and
Selling little bottles of Love Potion Number 9.

I told her that I
was a flop with chicks
I’ve been that way since 1966
She looked at my palm
and she made up my design
Said "what you need is Love Potion Number

She bent down and turned around and gave me a wink
She said "I’m
gonna mix it up right here in the sink"
It smelled like terpentine, it looked
like India ink
I held my nose, I closed my eyes, I took a drink

didn’t know if it was day or night
I started kissing everything in
But when I kissed a cop down on 34th and Vine
He broke my little
bottle of Love Potion Number 9.

Love Potion Number 9
Potion Number 9
Love Potion Number Ni-i-i-i-ine
