Iko Iko

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.
