Good-bye 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 gonna have big fun on the bayou.
Jambalaya, crawfish pie and fillet gumbo
Cause tonight I'm gonna see ma ch egravere amie-o
Pick guitar, fill fruit jar and be gay-o,
Son of a gun gonna have big fun on the bayou.
Brother Larry!

Fontainaux, Thibodaux, the place is buzzin',
People come to see Yvonne by the dozen.
Dress in style, go hog wild and be gay-o,

Son of a gun gonna have big fun on the bayou.

Jambalaya, crawfish pie and fillet gumbo
Cause tonight I'm gonna see ma ch egravere amie-o
Pick guitar, fill fruit jar and be gay-o,
Son of a gun gonna have big fun on the bayou.
Sister Mary!

Jambalaya, crawfish pie and fillet gumbo
Cause tonight I'm gonna see ma ch egravere amie-o
Pick guitar, fill fruit jar and be gay-o,
Son of a gun gonna have big fun on the bayou.
Son of a gun gonna have big fun on the bayou!
