Iko Iko Lyrics

My grandma and your grandma
Sitting by the fire
My grandma tells your grandma
"I'm gonna set your flag on fire"

Talkin' 'bout
Hey now
Hey now
Iko iko an nay
Jockomo feena ah na nay
Jockomo feena nay

Look at my king all dressed in red
Iko iko an nay
I bet you five dollars he'll kill you dead
Jockomo feena nay

CHORUS:
Talkin' 'bout
Hey now (hey now)
Hey now (hey now)
Iko iko an nay (whoah-oh)
Jockomo feena ah na nay
Jockomo feena nay

My flag boy and your flag boy
Sitting by the fire
My flag boy says to your flag boy
"I'm gonna set your flag on fire"

(CHORUS)

(bridge)

(hey now)
(hey now)
(hey now)
(hey now)
Jockomo feena nay
Iko!

See that guy all dressed in green
Iko iko an nay
He's not a man, he's a loving machine
Jockomo feena nay

(4x)
Talkin' 'bout
Hey now (hey now)
Hey now (hey now)
Iko iko an nay (whoah-oh)
Jockomo feena ah na nay
Jockomo feena nay

(repeat till fading end)
Jockomo feena nay

'No magic involved in this 1953 song. Actually, according to Wikipedia, it is about a New Orleans Mardi Gras parade collision between two Native American tribes.

I first heard it in "Rain Man" and always associate it with Tom Cruise yelling into his phone!! :D

don't ever hesitate to tell sonomee you love them, because one day you might regret not letting him know how you felt because it would have made everything different.

This chant is west African in origin bought to New Orleans by Haitians. It reflects west African tonal patterns.

@ Steve, yes 'flag burnin' but they are talking about the Mardi Gras Indian's and their tribe. They have flag boys that carry the tribes flag in front of their march on Carnival Day in the morning.
