Mike Gastineau:      SEAHAWKS LUCKY THINGS DIDN’T GET WORSE Read More

The Story

“The Witch” was the first single released by the legendary Tacoma punkers, The Sonics. The 7″ was backed by a cover version of Little Richard’s “Keep A-Knockin'” (on the b-side). “The Witch,” (though in the grand scheme of things did not have the worldwide impact some of the songs in this particular countdown did), is a groundbreaking anthem that may have single-handedly generated a regional rock sound that the rest of the planet now associates with the Pacific Northwest. The unmistakable simplicity of the song, the growling chord progression and the speaker-blowing vocals (of Gerry Roslie) are all components responsible for bringing bands like Nirvana, Mudhoney and The Fall-Outs to life.

The Lyrics

Say there’s a girl
Who’s new in town
Well you better watch out now
Or she’ll put you down
‘Cause she’s an evil chick
Say she’s the witch

She got long black hair
And a big black car
I know what you’re thinking
But you won’t get far
She gonna make you itch
‘Cause she’s the witch

Well, she walks around late at night
Most other people sleeping tight
If you hear her knocking on your door
You better sneak away

Now you know the score
‘Cause I set you straight
But you better be careful
Before it’s too late
She gonna make you itch
‘Cause she’s the witch

She walks around late at night
Most other people sleeping tight
If you hear her knocking on your door
You better stay awake

Well you know you will
Say don’t you know
And do you remember
That I told you so
Gonna do you in
‘Cause she’s the witch

Ah hoo
Ah hoo
