The Carpenters - Jambalaya
Tekst en muziek: Hank Williams
(1974)








Goodbye Joe, he gotta go, me oh my oh
He gotta go, pole the pyre down the bayou
His Yvonne, the sweetest one, me oh my oh
Son of a gun, we’ll have big fun on the bayou



Thibodaux, Fontaineaux, the place is buzzin’
A Kin-folk come to see Yvonne by the dozen
Dressed in style, the go hog wild, me oh my oh
Son of a gun, we’ll have big fun on the bayou



Jambalaya and a crawfish pie and fillet gumbo
For tonight I’m a-gonna see my-my cher a mi-o
Pick guitar, fill fruit jar and be gay-o
Son of a gun, we’ll have big fun on the bayou



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



Jambalaya and a crawfish pie and fillet gumbo
For tonight I’m a-gonna see my-my cher a mi-o
Pick guitar, fill fruit jar and be gay-o
Son of a gun, we’ll have big fun on the bayou



Jambalaya and a crawfish pie and fillet gumbo
For tonight I’m a-gonna see my-my cher a mi-o
Pick guitar, fill fruit jar and be gay-o
Son of a gun, we’ll have big fun on the bayou



Jambalaya and a crawfish pie and fillet gumbo
For tonight I’m a-gonna see my-my cher a mi-o
Pick guitar, fill fruit jar and be gay-o
Son of a gun, we’ll have big fun on the bayou



Jambalaya and a crawfish pie and fillet gumbo
For tonight I’m a-gonna see my-my cher a mi-o
Pick guitar, fill fruit jar and be gay-o
Son of a gun, we’ll have big fun on the bayou
