Hey! Lвche pas la patate, mon neg!
Lвche pas la patate!
Shake and swing and do my thing;
Mais lвche pas la patate!

I go out, it's Saturday night,
And give it all I've got!
I dance with all the pretty girls!
Mais lвche pas la patate!
From Lafayette to Ville Platte, down!
I make all the spots!
I live it up; I don't give up!
Mais lвche pas la patate!

Hey! Lвche pas la patate, mon neg!
Lвche pas la patate!
Shake and swing and do my thing;
Mais lвche pas la patate!

J'vas au bal tous les samedis,
Pour escouer mes vieilles pattes.
J'danse avec toutes les belles filles.
Mais j'lвche pas la patate!
J'fais tous les clubs que je peux faire
Ent'Lafayette et la Ville Platte.
Oublies-moi pas des fois зa chauffe!
Mais lвche pas la patate!

Hey! Lвche pas la patate, mon neg!
Lвche pas la patate!
Une chose qu'est claire, j'fais mon affaire.
Mais j'lвche pas la patate!

Heey-ee! Lвche pas la patate!

I've got no wife to saddle me
And show me where to trot.
When I decide to go, I go!
Mais lвche pas la patate!
I go alone most all the time,
But sometimes I do not:
I call Marie to come with me.
Mais lвche pas la patate!

Hey! Lвche pas la patate, mon neg!
Lвche pas la patate!
Shake and swing and do my thing;
Mais lвche pas la patate!

Chu pas mariй, j'ai pas personne
Pour m'tendre le fond d'culotte.
Quand j'veux partir chu "gone vieux j'tons".
Mais j'lвche pas la patate!
J'vas lа tout seul la moitiй du temps.
Mais quand l'idйe me frappe:
J'appelle Marie la chиre p'tite fille et
J'lвche pas la patate!

Hey! Lвche pas la patate, mon neg!
Lвche pas la patate!
Une chose qu'est claire, j'fais mon affaire.
Mais j'lвche pas la patate!

Heey-ee!

One night, two Cajuns had a fight,
One big, the other not.
I hollered for the little man,
"Hey! Lвche pas la patate!"
The big man shook his fist and said,
"Here's what you've gone and got!"
I turned around, ran back to town.
Mais lвche pas la patate!

Hey! Lвche pas la patate, mon neg!
Lвche pas la patate!
Shake and swing and do my thing;
Mais lвche pas la patate!

Un soir au bal un tout p'tit bouge
Et un gros appris а s'battre.
J'voulais que le petit gagne et j'criais
"Lвche pas la patate!"
Le gros bougre m'a r'gardй et dit
Espиre que j'te rattrape
J'mй virй de bord, J'ai couru fort.
J'ai lвchй la patate!

Hey! Lвchй la patate, mon neg!
J'ai lвchй la patate!
Une chose qu'est claire, j'fais mon affaire.
J'ai lвchй la patate!

(Fade)
