Out on de front porch, ol' man rockin'
Mama's in de kitchen on de ol' bayou
Kid gettin' some o' dat
finger lickin' chicken,
Piggin' on de bread pan, go child go
Kin folk come down Thibideaux,
hear Uncle Joe on de fiddle an' bow.
Rhythm o' de music
make ya tap yer toes, say oh no
Grab yer Cajun baby, take 'er by de han'
Dance to de fiddlin' man!
Storm come up, fishin' on de pirogue
Ol' man rockin' gonna fall out de boat.
Better watch out, gator gonna get 'im,
Can'e still out swimmum
to de bayou sho'
Mama come out shootin 'er shotgun
He say, "Mama don' shoot no mo',
gator don' come jus' a little too close!
Say oh, no! Grab yer Cajun baby
Take 'er by de han',
dance to de fiddlin' man, ayeee
Saturday night, party on de bayou
Cricket tell de bull frog, "watch dis show"
Raisin' Caine an' a little foot stompin'
Saturday night at de Fais Do Do
Couple come out doin' day two step
Ders Uncle Joe on de fiddle an' bow
Ol' Man Rockin' from a do si do
Say oh, no! Grab yer Cajun baby,
Take 'er by de han'
Dance to de fiddlin' man, Ayeee!
