Good-bye joe me gotta go me oh myo
Me gotta pole the pirogue down the bayou
My yvonne sweetest one me oh myo
Son of a gun we're gonna have big fun on the bayou
(chorus)
Jambalaya crawfish pie filet gumbo
Cause tonight i'm gonna see my cher-mio
Pick guitar fill friut jar and be gay-o
Son of a gun we're gonna have big fun on the bayou

Fontainebleau,thibodeux, the place is buzzin
Kinfolk come to see yvonne by the dozen
Dress in style go hog wild me oh myo
Son of a gun we're gonna have big fun on the bayou

(repeat chorus)

Settle down far from town get me a pirogue
And i'll catch all the fish on the bayou
Spend my mon to buy my gun for the need-o
Son of a gun we're gonna have big fun on the bayou

(repeat chorus)
