Hey baby won't you stop what you're doin'
Go on home put your red dress on
Tell you mama I said not to worry
I'll have you home before the break of dawn
Sonnier's got his squeeze box pumping
Thibadeaux's got his fiddle out
Meet me over by the side of the river
There's big doins down at Boudreaux's house
Take my bateaux down to the bayou
Pole on over to the fais do do
Don't be late
Don't keep me waitin'
Everybody's gonna go
I wanna be there when the band starts playin'
Zydeco music makes me wanna dance
Sun's goin' down and a full moon's shinin'
Mighty fine night for the big romance
I've got a question, I just might pop it
I know something that you don't know
I got a ring of gold in my pocket
Tonight's the night and you can't say no
(Let the good times roll!)
