Well I went outta fishin' to make a little mon
To take to Cajun Leena so we could have some fun
On the way back I knocked a hole in my bow
I got a hole in my pirogue I can't go see no gal
[Chorus:]
The prettiest sight that you ever have seen some moonlite night down in New Orleans
I'm up the river just around the bend
I got a hole in my pirogue I just can't haul it in
[ guitar ]
Cajun Leena's waitin' with tears in her eyes, munchin' and a cruchin' on a crawfish pie
I can smell the file' floatin' through the air
I got a hole in my pirogue I can't go see my chere
The prettiest sight...
[ guitar ]
Yeah I'm here on the bayou sittin' all alone
With a busted bottom and I can't haul it home
Cajun Leena's waitin' lonesome as can be
I got a hole in my pirogue I can't go see my she
The prettiest sight...
