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, crawfish pie and fillet gumbo
'Cause tonight I'm gonna see my ma-chère-amie-oh
Pick guitar, fill fruit jar and be gay-oh
Son of-a-gun, we'll have big fun on the bayou

Thibodaux, Fontaineaux, the place is buzzin'
Kinfolk come to see Yvonne by the dozen
Dress in style and go hog wild, me-oh-my-oh
Son-of-a-gun, we'll have big fun on the bayou
Settle down, far from town, get me a pirogue
And I'll catch all the fish in the bayou
Jambalaya and a crawfish pie

Later on, swap my mon', get me a pirogue
And I'll catch all the fish on the bayou
Swap my mon', to buy Yvonne what she need-oh
Son-of-a-gun we'll have big fun on the bayou
Jambalaya and a crawfish pie
