lyrics

BOOGIE ON THE BAYOU


IT WAS DOWN IN LOUISIANA WHERE I MET MY SWEET MARIE
IT WAS LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT ALL RIGHT
AN’ SHE SURE TOOK A SHINE TO ME
LIGHTNIN’ STRIKES WHEN LEAST EXPECTED
THIS CAJUN LADY CAME ON STRONG
DAY AFTER DAY HAD IT MADE IN THE SHADE
AN’ WE BOOGIED ON THE BAYOU ALL NIGHT LONG

BOOGIE ON THE BAYOU ALL NIGHT LONG
BOOGIE ON THE BAYOU 'TIL THE BREAK OF DAWN

I WAS DOWN ROUN’ CRAWFISH ALLEY
WHEN I MET MA SWEET CHÉRIE
HIT ME LIKE A HURRICANE A FREIGHT TRAIN
NOTHIN’ I COULD DO C’EST LA VIE
NO MATTER WHERE I AM WITH MY DELTA BABY I CAN’T GO WRONG
SHE TOOK ME IN HER ARMS AN’ INTO HER HEART
NOW WE BOOGIE ON THE BAYOU ALL NIGHT LONG

BOOGIE ON THE BAYOU ALL NIGHT LONG
BOOGIE ON THE BAYOU 'TIL THE BREAK OF DAWN
BOOGIE ON THE BAYOU ALL NIGHT LONG
BOOGIE ON THE BAYOU ’TIL THE BREAK OF DAWN

SHE’S A DARK-HAIRED DARK-EYED LONG-LEGGED CAJUN LADY
LOOKS SO GOOD IN HER TIGHT BLUE JEANS
DARK-HAIRED DARK-EYED LONG-LEGGED CAJUN LADY
FROM WAY DOWN SOUTH IN NEW ORLEANS

BOOGIE ON THE BAYOU BOOGIE ON THE BAYOU
BOOGIE ON THE BAYOU BOOGIE ON THE BAYOU

BOOGIE ON THE BAYOU ALL NIGHT LONG
BOOGIE ON THE BAYOU ALL NIGHT LONG
SHE’S A DARK-HAIRED DARK-EYED LONG-LEGGED CAJUN LADY
BOOGIE ON THE BAYOU ALL NIGHT LONG

BOOGIE ON THE BAYOU ALL NIGHT LONG
BOOGIE ON THE BAYOU ALL NIGHT LONG

SHE’S A DARK-HAIRED DARK-EYED LONG-LEGGED CAJUN LADY
BOOGIE ON THE BAYOU ALL NIGHT LONG
BOOGIE ON THE BAYOU ’TIL THE BREAK OF DAWN
BOOGIE ON THE BAYOU ’TIL THE BREAK OF DAWN
BOOGIE ON THE BAYOU
