"Strange Brew" is a 1967 song by British supergroup Cream.
Released in late May of that year as the lead single from their album Disraeli Gears, this song featured Eric Clapton on lead vocals rather than the usual lead by Jack Bruce.
The single peaked at number 17 on the UK charts in June of that same year.
The UK single release was the last Cream single to be released by Reaction Records.


After the Murray "the K" Show Cream recorded a song called "Lawdy Mama" with Ahmet Ertegun at Atlantic Studios in New York.
When Cream was working on the sessions for "Disraeli Gears", producer Felix Pappalardi took the tape of "Lawdy Mama" and with help from his wife Gail Collins transformed the song into "Strange Brew" which according to Eric Clapton "created a pop song without completely destroying the original groove."

Strange brew killing what's inside of you.

She's witch of trouble in electric blue.
In her own mad mind she's in love with you, with you.
Now what you gonna do?

Strange brew killing what's inside of you.

She's some kind of demon dusting in the flue.
If you don't watch out she'll stick to you, to you.
What kind of fool are you?

Strange brew killing what's inside of you.

On a ship in the middle of a raging sea
she would make a scene for it all to be ignored.
And wouldn't you be bored?

Strange brew killing what's inside of you.
Strange brew
Strange brew
Strange brew
Strange brew
Strange brew killing what's inside of you.
