Louie Louie
Toots and The Maytals Lyrics


Louie, Louie, oh baby, I gotta go
Yi, yi, yi, yi, yi
Louie, Louie, oh baby, I gotta go

A fine girl who waited for me
I catch a ship across the sea
I sailed the ship all alone
I wondered when I'm gonna make it home

Louie, Louie, oh baby, I gotta go
Yi, yi, yi, yi, yi
Louie, Louie, oh baby, I gotta go

Three nights and days I sailed the sea
I think of the girl constantly
On the ship, I dream she there
I smell the rose that's in her hair

Louie, Louie, oh baby, I gotta go
Yi, yi, yi, yi, yi
Louie, Louie, oh baby, I gotta go

I see Jamaican moon above
See the girl I'm thinking of
I take her in my arms and then
Say I'll never leave again

Louie, Louie, oh baby, I gotta go
Yi, yi, yi, yi, yi
Louie, Louie, oh baby, I gotta go

Oh, I gotta go now
Uh, huh, I gotta go

As mods in London in the 1960s we danced to his fantastic music, I still love it and always get the Reggae and Ska out every Saturday, Toots will live on, watching the Glastonbury concert recently the audience were half his age and loving it , we were blessed to have him on Earth.

John Beecroft

Indeed we were. His life Our blessing

when Ska is around, I don't even realise I'm dancing.
