The Meters - Fire On The Bayou

Fire on the bayou
Fire on the bayou
Fire on the bayou
Fire on the bayou

Down in New Orleans, in Lucky's din
He wouldn't deal y'all for a 5th of gin
One dude wanted a bottle of wine
Hit that dude yes he did up for a dollar and a dime

Fire on the bayou
Fire on the bayou

Take a little toke on your smoke
Buy yourself a bottle of wine
Cool, cool wine going down your throat
Don't try and tell me don't make you feel fine

Fire on the bayou
Fire on the bayou

I got a nickel now, you got a dime
Let's get together and have a good time
Goin' to buy a fifth, going to buy a joint
when you gettin' down now, you doin' things right"

"I got swamp water runnin' through my veins
The Mississippi River can't be tamed
I pole my pirogue in the middle of the night
I'm an uptown ruler, I can do it right"
