Jambalaya (On the Bayou) / ジャンバラヤ

Good-bye Joe, he gotta go, me oh my oh
He gotta go-pole the pirogue down the bayou
His Yvonne the sweetest one, me oh my oh
Son of a gun, we’ll have big fun on the bayou

Jambalaya and a crawfish pie and fillet gumbo
‘Cause tonight, I’m gonna see my
ma cher a mi-o
Pick guitar, fill fruit jar and be gay-o
Son of a gun, we’ll have big fun on the bayou

Thibodaux, Fontaineaux the place is buzzin’
Kin-folk come to see Yvonne by the dozen
Dress in style they go hog wild, me oh my oh
Son of a gun, we’ll have big fun on the bayou

Jambalaya and a crawfish pie and fillet gumbo
‘Cause tonight, I’m gonna see my
ma cher a mi-o
Pick guitar, fill fruit jar and be gay-o
Son of a gun, we’ll have big fun on the bayou

Jambalaya and a crawfish pie and fillet gumbo
‘Cause tonight, I’m gonna see my
ma cher a mi-o
Pick guitar, fi ll fruit jar and be gay-o
Son of a gun, we’ll have big fun on the bayou

Settle down far from town get him a pirogue
And he’ll catch all the fish in the bayou
Swap his mon to buy Yvonne what she need-o
Son of a gun, we’ll have big fun on the bayou
