The Dixie Cups – Iko Iko lyrics

My grandma and your grandma were sittin' by the fire
My grandma told your grandma:
"I'm gonna set your flag on fire"

Talkin' 'bout, Hey now! Hey now! I-KO I-KO un-day
Jock-a-mo fee-no ai na-ne
Jock-a-mo fee-na-ne

Look at my king all dressed in red , I-KO I-KO un-day
I betcha five dollars he'll kill you dead
Jock-a-mo fee-na-ne
(chorus) =

My flag boy and your flag boy were sittin' by the fire
My flagboy told your flagboy:
"I'm gonna set your flag on fire"

See that guy all dressed in green? I-KO I-KO un-day
He's not a man, he's a lovin' machine
Jock-a-mo fee-na-ne
(chorus) =
