GO TO THE MARDI GRAS by Scott Detweiler

When you go to New Orleans
You want to go see the Mardi Gras
When you see the Mardi Gras
Somebody tell you what’s carnival for

With your ticket in your hand
You want to go to New Orleans
When you get to New Orleans
I’m sure you’ll see the Zulu King

When you see the Zulu King
Down on St. Claude and Dumaine
If you stay right there
I’m sure you’ll see the Zulu Queen

Copyright 1948 Henry Roeland “Professor Longhair” Byrd

WHEN THE SAINTS GO MARCHING IN by Scott Detweiler

Oh when the saints go marching in
I want to be in that number
When the saints go marching in

When the sun refuse to shine
I want to be in that number
When the saints go marching in

When that brother blow his horn
I want to be in that number
When that brother blow his horn

IKO IKO by Scott Detweiler

Met my Manila mama from the isle of Jolo
I said, “I’m from the bayou”, then I made the sister mine , oh
Talkin bout hey now, hey now
Iko iko an day
Said Shocomo fino na nan day
Said Shocomo fin an day

Married in the chapel, everybody we know
Dance and singin all night long, at the big fais-do-do
Talkin bout hey now, hey now
Iko iko an day
Said Shocomo fino na nan day
Said Shocomo fin an day

Our love brought a lil baby, look just like her and me oh
Fed the chile jambalaya, ginatan and biko
Talkin bout hey now, hey now
Iko iko an day
Said Shocomo fino na nan day
Said Shocomo fin an day

Iko iko an day
