Jambalaya
Fats Domino Lyrics


Goodbye, Joe, me gotta go, me-oh, my-oh
Me gotta go, pole the pirogue down the bayou
My Yvonne, the sweetest one, me-oh, my-oh
Son of a gun, we'll have big fun on the bayou

Jambalaya and a crawfish pie and filé gumbo
'Cause tonight I'm gonna see my ma chère amie-o
Pick guitar, fill fruit jar and be gay-o
Son of a gun, we'll have big fun on the bayou
Thibodaux, Fontaineaux, the place is buzzin'
Kinfolk come to see Yvonne by the dozen
Dress in style, go hog wild and be gay-o
Son of a gun, we'll have big fun on the bayou

Jambalaya and a crawfish pie and filé gumbo
'Cause tonight I'm gonna see my ma chère amie-o
Pick guitar, fill fruit jar and be gay-o
Son of a gun, we'll have big fun on the bayou

Fats Domino was simply a musical giant. His musical influence is phenomenal. As long as great music is appreciated there will always be a special place for Fats Domino.

I was looking for the original single recording by Fats & stumbled across this rockin' live version. Fantastic performance by all!

Man I absolutely love Fats! Especially this. My dad always played it when I was growing up. I'm 39 now and still get that same feeling now as I did as a kid. Rest in peace big man and may your music live on....❤

saw him in London MANY years ago. What an act! He came onto the stage pushing his grand piano with his tummy. The sax lineup was brilliantly threatening. It was a complete show. Always loved his music ever ince I sang it in a small group in 1960. But we were, of course, a very tepid version of this great man. Sorry you have left us fats....

¡Rock cajún del bueno! Bendito seas Fats, mi viejo héroe. Vivirás para siempre en cuantos bailaron tus canciones y se embriagaron en tu ritmo, puro y enfebrecido como las sustancias “esenciales”.

RIP Fats. Absolute legend!

This is a great version of Jambalaya. I wish I could find it on iTunes. At over 4 minutes long it's unusual for the time. Good stuff Carlos
