Hit it, Hal

Early in the mornin, she hitched a ride down to Louisville
Holdin onto a hundred dollar bill
Dressed herself like a Cajun Queen in New Orleans, baby
Yeah, she looked good, like a lady

Do it to me, James

And the Mississippi River runs like molasses in the summertime
And me, you know, I don't hardly mind

Sippin on a beer in Bourbon Street and I'm sittin easy
Don't get me wrong, it takes a lot to please me

Have a seat an take a load off your feet, and she said Yes
So I said, I like your dress
Swamps all around make ya feel kinda funny, don't they, honey
She crossed her legs and looked at me funny

Down on the bayou, why, you never know just what you're doin
Down on the bayou, why, you never know just what you're doin
Down on the bayou, why, you never know just what you're doin
Down on the bayou, why, you never know just what you're doin

Joseph

Early in the mornin, she hitched a ride down to Louisville
Holdin onto a hundred dollar bill
Dressed herself like a Cajun Queen in New Orleans, baby
Yeah, she looked good, like a lady

And the Mississippi River, it runs like molasses in the summertime
And me, you know, I don't hardly mind

Sippin on a beer in Bourbon Street and I'm sittin easy
Don't get me wrong, it takes a lot to please me

Everybody sing

Down on the bayou, why, you never know just what you're doin
Down on the bayou, why, you never know just what you're doin

Have a seat, take a load off your feet, and she said Yes
So I said, I like your dress
Swamps all around make ya feel kinda funny, don't they, honey
She crossed her legs and looked at me funny

Down on the bayou, why, you never know just what you're doin
Down on the bayou, why, you never know just what you're doin
Down on the bayou, why, you never know just what you're doin
Down on the bayou, why, you never know just what you're doin
Down on the bayou, why, you never know just what you're doin
