Iko Iko:The Dixie Cups.
Hit the top 40 in 1965.
The song lyrics are partly Creole French &
the song is allegedly about the Mardi Gras.
The only music during the whole song is Barbara
Hawkins beating time with drumsticks on a Coke bottle.
I added the chords.

#1.
F
My grandma and your grandma
                    C                   
were sittin' by the fire.
C
My grandma told your grandma,
                           F                           
I'm gonna set your flag on fire.

CHORUS:
F
Talkin' 'bout

Hey now, hey now, hey now, hey now.
          C
Iko iko unday.
         
Jockamo feeno ai nan ai,
                F     
Jockamo fee nan ai.

Verse 2:
F
Look at my king all dressed in red.
          C         
Iko iko unday.

I betcha five dollars he'll kill you dead.
                F              
Jockamo fee nan ai.

CHORUS:

#3.
F
My flag boy and your flag boy,
                    C                   
were sittin' by the fire.
C
My flag boy told your flag boy,
                           F                      
I'm gonna set your flag on fire.

CHORUS:

#4:
F
See that guy all dressed in green?
          C         
Iko iko unday.
C
He's not a man, he's a lovin' machine.
                F             
Jockamo fee nan ai.

CHORUS:


A sixties smash from Kraziekhat.
