This slab of Latin soul tells the sorry tale of a superstitious partner. It was released as a single in 2018, gaining airplay on BBC 6 Music by Craig Charles.

lyrics

VERSE 1

Something’s happening
It’s a little bit hard to describe
Got this feeling
And I just can’t shake off the vibe

It’s unearthly
Like an incubus is here on my scene
Talking Obeah
A kind of Voodoo, do you know what I mean?

CHORUS
Well there’s Something Going On
Yeah there’s Something Going On

VERSE 2

He’s been changing
In the way he’s been acting with me
With his herbals and potions
Supernatural notions
He’s not the guy I took him to be

Superstition seems to govern every move that he makes
Hiring readers and peddlers
Paganistic meddlers
There just a bunch of fakes

CHORUS
Well there’s Something Going On
Yeah there’s Something Going On

GUITAR SOLO

CHORUS
And there’s Something Going On
Yeah there’s Something Going On

BRIDGE
Yeah, his head is full of all this mumbo-jumbo
And he just can’t seem to see that that is wrong
And people pulling him in all directions

CHORUS
Yeah, well there’s Something Going On
Yeah there’s Something Going On

VERSE 3
Now I’m not the kind of girl
Who believes in other worlds
But there’s something more to him than meets the eye

And I don’t believe in magic
But there’s something kind of tragic
In the way he thinks he’s underneath a spell

And I’m tryin’ to keep calm
But he’s causing me alarm
The man really needs to see a shrink

When he’s lighting all these candles
And I’m flying off the handle
Not surprised I really need a drink


CHORUS
‘Cos there’s Something Going On
Yeah there’s Something Going On

There’s Something Going On (REPEAT ad lib)
