Iko Iko – Dr. John (1972)

1) My grandma and your grandma,
were sittin’ by the fire
My grandma told your grandma,
I’m gonna set your flag on fire

Refrein: Talkin’ ‘bout hey now, (hey now!)
Hey now, (hey now!)
Iko, iko unday,
Jock-amo feeno ai nané,
Jock-amo fee nané

2) Look at my king all dressed in red
Iko, iko, unday
I betcha five dollars he’ll kill you dead
Jock-amo fee nané

Refrein: Talkin’ ‘bout hey now, (hey now!) (etc.)

3) My flag boy and your flag boy
were sittin’ by the fire
My flag boy told your flag boy
I’m gonna set your flag on fire

Refrein: Talkin’ ‘bout hey now, (hey now!) (etc.)

4) See that guy all dressed in green
Iko, iko, unday
He’s not a man, he’s a lovin’ machine
Jock-amo fee nané

Refrein: Talkin’ ‘bout hey now, (hey now!) (etc.)
