The Dixie Cups - Iko Iko
Misc Unsigned Bands
Iko Iko:The Dixie Cups. Hit the top 40 in 1965. The song lyrics are partly Creole French & the song is allegedly about the Mardi Gras. The only music during the whole song is Barbara Hawkins beating time with drumsticks on a Coke bottle. I added the chords. #1. F My grandma and your grandma C were sittin' by the fire. C My grandma told your grandma, F I'm gonna set your flag on fire. CHORUS: F Talkin' 'bout Hey now, hey now, hey now, hey now. C Iko iko unday. Jockamo feeno ai nan ai, F Jockamo fee nan ai. Verse 2: F Look at my king all dressed in red. C Iko iko unday. I betcha five dollars he'll kill you dead. F Jockamo fee nan ai. CHORUS: #3. F My flag boy and your flag boy, C were sittin' by the fire. C My flag boy told your flag boy, F I'm gonna set your flag on fire. CHORUS: #4: F See that guy all dressed in green? C Iko iko unday. C He's not a man, he's a lovin' machine. F Jockamo fee nan ai. CHORUS: A sixties smash from Kraziekhat.
