About Hold Tight

"Hold Tight, Hold Tight (Want Some Seafood Mama)", commonly known as "Hold Tight", is a 1938 Sidney Bechet song, composed by Bechet's guitarist Leonard Ware and two session singers with claimed contributions from Bechet himself. The song became known for what at the time were considered suggestive lyrics, and then for a series of lawsuits over songwriter royalties.

Hold tight hold tight hold tight hold tight
Foo-ra-de-ack-a-sa-ki
Want some seafood Mama
Shrimpers and rice they're very nice
Hold tight hold tight hold tight hold tight
Foo-ra-de-ack-a-sa-ki
Want some seafood Mama
Steamers and sauce and then of course I like oysters lobsters too
And I like my tasty butter fish 
When I come home from work at night 
I get my favorite dish, fish!
Hold tight hold tight hold tight hold tight
Foo-ra-de-ack-a-sa-ki
Want some seafood Mama
