Apparently, David Seville recorded on Liberty records. The song, "Witch
Doctor" appeared on the album (remember those?) below, sung by Seville.
Probably 1962. Web site is: http://www.bsnpubs.com/libertyc.html and I used
to have the song on a 45. (That's a small record with a large hole, not a
gun.) I was 12 at the time.
I also found the words on a site in the Netherlands.
I guess it's a big hit in the Netherlands.
