Lil' Kim:
Where's all my soul sisters
Let me hear y'all flow sisters

Hey sister, go sister, soul sister, flow sister
Hey sister, go sister, soul sister, go sister

He met Marmalade down in old Moulin Rouge
Strutting her stuff on the street
She said, hello, hey Joe
You wanna give it a go, oh

Gitchi gitchi ya ya da da (hey hey hey)
Gitchi gitchi ya ya hee (hee oh)
Mocca chocolata ya ya (ooh yeah)
Creole Lady Marmalade (ohh)

Voulez-vous coucher avec moi, ce soir (oh oh)
Voulez-vous coucher avec moi (yeah yeah yeah yeah)

He sat in her boudoir while she freshened up
Boy drank all that magnolia wine
On her black satin sheets
Is where he started to freak, yeah

Gitchi gitchi ya ya da da (da da yeah)
Gitchi gitchi ya ya hee (ooh yeah yeah)
Mocca chocolata ya ya (yeah, yeah)
Creole Lady Marmalade, uh

Voulez-vous coucher avec moi, ce soir (ce soir)
Voulez-vous coucher avec moi (ooh)

Lil' Kim:
Yeah, yeah, aw
We come through with the money and the garter belts
Let 'em know we 'bout that cake, straight out the gate
We independent women, some mistake us for whores
I'm saying, why spend mine when I can spend yours
Disagree, well that's you and I'm sorry
I'ma keep playing these cats out like Atari
Wear high heeled shoes, getting love from the Jews
Four bad ass chicks from the Moulin Rouge
Hey sisters, soul sisters
Betta' get that dough sisters
We drink wine with diamonds in the glass
By the case, the meaning of expensive taste
We wanna gitchi gitchi ya ya (come on)
Mocca chocolata (what)
Creole Lady Marmalade

One more time, come on now

Marmalade (ooh)
Lady Marmalade (ooh yeah)
Marmalade (ohh)

Hey, hey, hey
Touch of her skin feeling silky smooth, oh
Color of cafe au lait, alright
Made the savage beast inside
Roar until he cried

More, more, more

Now he's back home doing nine to five (nine to five)

Living a gray flannel life

But when he turns off to sleep, memories keep

More, more, more

Gitchi gitchi ya ya da da (da da)
Gitchi gitchi ya ya hee (ohh)
Mocca chocolata ya ya (ooh)
Creole Lady Marmalade

Voulez-vous coucher avec moi, ce soir (ce soir)
Voulez-vous coucher avec moi (all my sisters, yeah)
Voulez-vous coucher avec moi, ce soir (ce soir)
Voulez-vous coucher avec moi (ohh)

Come on, uh

Christina (Christina:)
Pink (Pink:)
hey, hey, Lady Marmalade
Lil' Kim (Lil' Kim:)
Hey, hey, uh uh uh uh uh uh uh
Mya (Mya:)
Oh oh ohh yeah
Rockwilder baby
Moulin Rouge
Oh ooh
Da dum da dum
Missy Elliott:
Misdemeanor here
All (except Missy)
Creole Lady Marmalade, ooh yessa

    It's New Orleans slang, babies... The song as a whole is about a regular corporate type of guy who once had an unforgettable experience with a beautiful Creole hooker. In the chorus ("Gitchie, gitchie yaya, dada, gitchie, gitchie yaya hee") she calls to him on the street, "Get your mocha-chocolate (referring to her skin) yaya (sex) here, daddy." The French ("Voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir") means, "Would you like to go to bed with me tonight."
