: 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 fillet 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.
