[Chorus]
 Louie Louie, oh no
Me gotta go
Aye-yi-yi-yi, I said
 Louie Louie, oh baby
Me gotta go

Fine little girl waits for me
 Catch a ship across the sea
Sail that ship about, all alone  Never know if I make it home

[Chorus]

 Three nights and days I sail the sea
 Think of girl, constantly 
On that ship, I dream she's there 
I smell the rose in her hair.

[Chorus]

Okay, let's give it to 'em, right now!

See Jamaica, the moon above 
It won't be long, me see me love
Take her in my arms again 
Tell her I'll never leave again 

[Chorus]

Let's take it on outta here now
Let's go!!
