Well goodbye Joe me gotta go me oh my oh
Me gotta go pole the pirogue down the bayou
My Yvonne the sweetest one me oh my oh
Son of a gun we'll have big fun on the bayou
Well jambalaya and a crawfish pie and fillet gumbo
Cause tonight I'm gonna see my ma cher amio
I'm gonna pick guitar fill fruit jar and be gay-o
Well son of a gun we'll have big fun on the bayou
[ sax ]
Thibodaux Fontaineaux the place is buzzin'
Kinfolk come to see Yvonne by the dozen
Yeah dress in style and go hog wild me oh my oh
Well son of a gun we'll have big fun on the bayou
Well jambalaya and a crawfish pie...
[ sax ]
Settle down far from town get me a pirogue
And I'll catch all the fish in the bayou
Yeah swap my mon to buy Yvonne what she need-o
Son of a gun we'll have big fun on the bayou
Well jambalaya and a crawfish pie...
