Pow Wow – Iko Iko lyrics

(B. Hawkins/are. Hawkins/J. Johnson)

My grand-ma and your grand-ma were
Sittin' by the fire
My grand-ma told your grand-ma:
" I'm gonna set your flag on fire "

Talkin' 'bout
Hey now! Hey now!
Iko, iko unday
Jock-a-mo fee-no ai na-n?
Jock-a-mo fee na-n?

Look at my king all dressed in red
Iko, iko unday
I betcha five dollars he'll kill you dead
Jock-a-mo fee na-n?

Talkin' 'bout
Hey now! Hey now!
Iko, iko unday
Jock-a-mo fee-no ai na-n?
Jock-a-mo fee na-n?

See that girl all dressed in green
Iko, iko unday
She's not a girl, she's a lovin' machine
Jock-a-mo fee na-n?

Talkin' 'bout
Hey now! Hey now!
Iko, iko unday
Jock-a-mo fee-no ai na-n?
Jock-a-mo fee na-n?

Mardi gras's coming and it won't belong
Iko, iko unday
Till everybody's singing my little song
Jock-a-mo fee na-n?

Talkin' 'bout
Hey now! Hey now!
Iko, iko unday
Jock-a-mo fee-no ai na-n?
Jock-a-mo fee na-n?

Talkin' 'bout
Hey now! Hey now!
Iko, iko unday
Jock-a-mo fee-no ai na-n?
Jock-a-mo fee na-n?
