Jambalaya Lyrics

Artist: Fats Domino

Jambalaya
Jimmy C. Newman
Music & Lyrics : H. Williams
Notes : Also performed by "Creedence Clearwater Revival"

Goodbye, Joe, me gotta go, me oh my oh.
Me gotta go, pole the pirogue down the bayou.
My 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 fil* gumbo
'Cause tonight I'm gonna see my ma cher amio.
Pick guitar, fill fruit jar and be gayo,
Son of a gun, we'll have big fun on the bayou.

Thibodaux, Fontaineaux, the place is buzzin',
kinfolk come to see Yvonne by the dozen.
Dress in style and 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 fil gumbo
'Cause tonight I'm gonna see my ma cher amio.
Pick guitar, fill fruit jar and be gayo,
Son of a gun, we'll have big fun on the bayou.

Settle down far from town, get me a pirogue
and I'll catch all the fish in the bayou.
Swap my mon to buy Yvonne what she need-o.
Son of a gun, we'll have big fun on the bayou.

Jambalaya and a crawfish pie and fil gumbo
'Cause tonight I'm gonna see my ma cher amio.
Pick guitar, fill fruit jar and be gayo,
Son of a gun, we'll have big fun on the bayou.



* Note by Jim Shilliday dlp-pa.org>:
The word fil (with an acute accent on the e,
pronounced feelay) is a spice used to flavor the soup...

spelled 'file' (pronounced fe lay - the e and the a are long) is sassafrass leaves and it doesn't spice it up. It actually flattens the taste and you add it per person
