"I Put a Spell on You" is the famous villain song of the 3 Sanderson Sisters, Winifred "Winnie" Sanderson (portrayed by bt Bette Midler), Mary Sanderson (portayed by Kathy Najimy), and Sarah Sanderson (portrayed by Sarah Jessica Parker), in the 1993 Disney fantasy comedy movie Hocus Pocus.

I Put a Spell on You was a 1956 song written by Screamin' Jay Hawkins, whose recording was selected as one of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll. It was also ranked #313 on the Rolling Stone magazine's list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

Bette Midler (as Winnie) sang a cover of this song, albeit with different lyrics, in Hocus Pocus.


I put a spell on you
And now you're mine
You can't stop the things I do
I ain't lyin'

 It's been three hundred years
Right down to the day
Now the witch is back
And there's hell to pay

 I put a spell on you
And now you're mine!

 Hello, Salem!
My name's Winifred!
What's yours?

 I put a spell on you
And now you're gone
(Gone gone gone, so long!)
My whammy fell on you
And it was strong
(So strong, so strong, so strong!)

 Your wretched little lives
Have all been cursed
'Cause of all the witches working
I'm the worst

 I put a spell on you
And now you're mine

 (Watch out! Watch out! Watch out! Watch out!)

 If you don't believe
You better get superstitious
Ask my sisters
"Ooh, she's vicious!"

 I put a spell on you...
I put a spell on you...

 Ah say ento pi alpha mabi upendi
Ah say ento pi alpha mabi upendi
In comma coriyama
In comma coriyama

 Hey, hey, high, high
Say bye-bye!
Bye bye!


  • During Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at the Magic Kingdom, a pop version of the song can be heard during exit of the HalloWishes fireworks show. The song is also sung by The Sanderson Sisters and various Disney Villains during the finale of "Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular".
