Well if you ever been down to New Orleans
You could understand just what I mean
All through the week, it's quiet as a mouse
But on Saturday night, they go from house to house

You don't have to pay the usual admission
If you're a cook or a waiter or a good musician
If you happen to be just passin' by
Stop in at the Saturday Night Fish Fry

It was rockin', it was rockin'
You never seen such scufflin and shufflin 'til the break of dawn
It was rockin', it was rockin'
You never seen such scufflin and shufflin 'til the break of dawn

Well my buddy and me was on the main stem
Foolin' around just me and him
But we decided we could use a little something to eat
And we went to a house on Rampart Street

Knocked on the door, it opened with ease
And a lurch little missy said, "Come in, please"
Before we could even bat an eye
We was right in the middle of a big fish fry

It was rockin', it was rockin'
You never seen such scufflin and shufflin 'til the break of dawn
It was rockin', it was rockin'
You never seen such scufflin and shufflin 'til the break of dawn

Well my buddy and me, we fell right in
And we hollered, "Whoa let the joy begin!"
Figured this was a good place to play
'Cause the party was already under way

But all of a sudden the lights went low
And everybody headed straight for the front door
I got so scared I didn't know where to go
So I stood right there, until I fell on the floor

It was rockin', it was rockin'
You never seen such scufflin and shufflin 'til the break of dawn
It was rockin', it was rockin'
You never seen such scufflin and shufflin 'til the break of dawn

Well the women was screamin', cryin', and yellin'
Bottles was flyin' and the fish was smellin'
Way up above all the noise they made
Somebody hollered, "Hey man, this is a raid!"

Didn't even know that we was breakin' the law
But somebody reached over and hit me on the jaw
Had us blocked off from the front to the back
They were throwin' us in the wagon like potato sacks

It was rockin', it was rockin'
You never seen such scufflin and shufflin 'til the break of dawn
It was rockin', it was rockin'
You never seen such scufflin and shufflin 'til the break of dawn

Well I knew I could get away if I had a chance
But shakin' like I had the St. Vitus dance
Tried to crawl under a bathtub
The policeman said, "Hey where you goin', bub?"

They got us all out of that house afire
Threw us all in that Black Maria
They might have missed a pitiful few
But they got poor me and my buddy too

It was rockin', it was rockin'
You never seen such scufflin and shufflin 'til the break of dawn
It was rockin', it was rockin'
You never seen such scufflin and shufflin 'til the break of dawn

Well they took us to jail in a dazed condition
And booked each one of us on suspicion
Had to call my chick to come and go my bail
And finally got me out of that rotten jail

And if you ever want to get a fist in your eye
Well just mention a Saturday night fish fry
Don't care how many fish in the sea
But, hey, don't ever mention a fish to me

It was rockin', it was rockin'
You never seen such scufflin and shufflin 'til the break of dawn
It was rockin', it was rockin'
You never seen such scufflin and shufflin 'til the break of dawn

It was rockin', it was rockin'
You never seen such scufflin and shufflin 'til the break of dawn
It was rockin', it was rockin'
You never seen such scufflin and shufflin 'til the break of dawn

It was rockin', it was rockin'
You never seen such scufflin and shufflin 'til the break of dawn
It was rockin', it was rockin'
You never seen such scufflin and shufflin 'til the break of dawn

Well it was rockin', it was rockin'
You never seen such scufflin and shufflin 'til the break of dawn
It was rockin', it was rockin'
You never seen such scufflin and shufflin 'til the break of dawn

It was rockin', it was rockin'
You never seen such scufflin and shufflin 'til the break of dawn
