Chorus:

  Jamballaya, Crowfish Pie, Fillet Gumbo,
  'Cause tonight I'm gonna see ma'cher amiyou
  Pick Guitar, Fill Fruit Jar and be Gayou
  Son ov'a gun we'll have big fun on the bayou

Thibideaus, Fauntineaus, place is buzzin'
Kinfolk come see Ivonne by the dozen
Dressed in style, go hogwild, me oh, my oh
Son ova gun we'll have big fun down the bayou

  Chorus

; This  third  verse is for some reason missing almost on all the
; recordings by Hank and others, even though you can find  it  in
; the lyrics. Here it is

Settle down far from town, by me a pirogue
And I'll catch all the fish in the bayou
Swap my mon' by Ivonne what she need'o
Son ov'a gun we'll have big fun on the bayou

  Chorus.
