Well I went out a fishin' to make a little more
To take to Catelina so we could have some fun
On the way back, I knocked a hole in my bow
I got a hole in my pirogue, I can't go see my gal

The purtiest sight that you ever have seen
Is a moonlight night down in New Orleans
I'm up the river, just around the bend
I got a hole in my pirogue, I just cain't hold it in

Well Catelina's waitin' with tears in her eyes
Munchin' and a crunchin' on a crawfish pie
I smell a feeling floatin' through the air
I got a hole in my pirogue, I can't go see my Cher

The purtiest sight that you ever have seen
Is a moonlight night down in New Orleans
I'm up the river, just around the bend
I got a hole in my pirogue, I just cain't hold it in

Yeah I'm here on the bayou, sittin' all alone
With a busted bottom and I cain't pole it home
Catelina's waitin' lonesome as can be
I got a hole in my pirogue, I cain't go see my she

The purtiest sight that you ever have seen
Is a moonlight night down in New Orleans
I'm up the river, just around the bend
I got a hole in my pirogue, I just cain't hold it in
