Goodbye Joe, me gotta go, me-o-my-o
We've gotta go, pole the pirogue down the bayou
My Yvonne, sweetest one, me-oh-my-oh
Son of a gun, we'll have big fun on the bayou

Jambalaya and a crawfish pie, fil'e gumbo
'Cause tonight I'm gonna see my ma cher amio
Pick guitar, fill fruit jar, and be gay-o
Son of a gun, we'll have big fun on the bayou

(instrumental & sax)

Thibodaux, Fontaineaux, place is buzzin'
Kinfolks come to see Yvonne by the dozen
Dress in style, go hog wild, and be gay-o
Son of a gun, we gonna have big fun on the bayou

Jambalaya an' a crawfish pie, fil'e gumbo
'Cause tonight I'm gonna see my ma cher amio
Pick guitar, fill fruit jar and be gay-o
Son of a gun, we gonna have a big fun on the bayou.

~
