Jambalaya - The Carpenters

1. Strophe

Goodbye, Joe, me gotta go, me oh my oh.

Me 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.

 

2. Strophe

Thibodaux, Fontaineaux, the place is buzzin',

Kinfolk come to see Yvonne by the dozen.

Dressed in style they go hog wild, me oh my oh.

Son of a gun, we'll have big fun on the bayou.

 

1. Refrain

Jambalaya and crawfish pie and fillet gumbo

For tonight down 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.

 

Instrumental 

 

3. Strophe

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.

 

2. Refrain

Pick guitar, fill fruit jar and be gayo,
