chief say. He say, Jackimo feen-i-ay! Jackimo feen-i-ay! Hooray Melinda! Jackimo

feen-i-ay! Jackimo fender! You don't like what the big chief say. He say,

Jackimo feen-i ay! Well, my spy boy and your spy boy, sittin' by the bayou.

Yeah, my spy boy and your spy boy, we're gonna get your chicken by you! And he

Iko Iko on day! And it's jackimo feeno an-an-day! Jackimo feen-i-ay! Well, the

little-bitty boy got a heart of steel (Iko iko an-day!) and he never would bow

and he never would kneel. (Jackimo feen-i-ay!) He was a mighty brave when he

sang his song, (Iko iko an-day!) and that's why his name gonna carry on.

(Jackimo feen-i-ay!) Here me sing out... (Chorus) Well, the prettiest thing I

ever did see (Iko iko an-day!) was a Mardi Gras Injun in New Orleans. (Jackimo

feen-i-ay!) Yeah, they run' em up and they run 'em on down. (Iko iko an-day!)

And they play wild Injun when the sun go down. (Jackimo feen-i-ay!) Well, you

see my spy, she all dressed in green. (Iko iko an-day!) Yeah, hide the pistol

where it can't be seen. (Jackimo feen-i-ay!) Well, you see my spy, she all

dressed in red. (Iko iko an-day!) Gonna bury a hatchet in the big chief's head.

(Jackimo feen-i-ay!) Everybody sing now... (Chorus) Hear you sing out...

(Chorus) Well, the Mardi Gras comin' and it won't be long (Iko iko an-day!) 'til

the wild Tchopatoulas start to carry on. (Jackimo feen-i-ay!) Hear you sing

out... (Chorus) And it's jackimo feeno an-an-day! Jackimo feen-i-ay!
