I'll look in my superstition books. But first, a little song:

THE SEVENTH SON
(W. Dixon)
Sung by Johnny Rivers

Everybody talkin' 'bout the seventh son
In the whole wide world there is only one

And I'm the one, I'm the one
I'm the one, I'm the one
The one they call the seventh son

I can tell your future, it will come to pass
I can do things to you make your heart feel glad
Look in the sky, predict the rain
Tell when a woman's got another man.
