Iko-Iko Lyrics

by Ringo Starr

My grand-ma and your grand-ma were
Sit-tin' by the fire. - My grand-ma told
Your grand-ma: "I'm gon-na set your flag on fire."--

Talk-in' 'bout, Hey now! Hey now! I-KO, I-KO, un-day
Jock-a-mo fee-no ai na-n. - Jock-a-mo fee na-n.-

Look at my king all dressed in red.-
I-KO, I-KO, un-day. I bet-cha five dol-lars he'll kill you dead.--
Jock-a-mo fee na-n

Talk-in' 'bout, Hey now! Hey now! I-KO, I-KO, un-day
Jock-a-mo fee-no ai na-n. - Jock-a-mo fee na-n.-

My flag boy and your flag boy were
Sit-tin' by the fire. - My flag boy told
Your flag boy: "I'm gon-na set your flag on fire."

Talk-in' 'bout, Hey now! Hey now! I-KO, I-KO, un-day
Jock-a-mo fee-no ai na-n. - Jock-a-mo fee na-n.-

See that guy all dressed in green? -
I-KO, I-KO, un-day. He's not a man;
He's a lov-in' ma-chine.--
Jock-a mo fee na-n.--

Talk-in' 'bout, Hey now! Hey now! I-KO, I-KO, un-day
Jock-a-mo fee-no ai na-n. - Jock-a-mo fee na-n.-
