celticblues5 Lyr Req: Bon Temps Roulle / Bon Ton Roullie (13) RE: Lyr Req: Bon Temps Roulle / Bon Ton Roullie 07 Jul 00


Katie Webster's version - (really terrific, with lots of background chatter by the band)

Aye-yi-yi-yi-yi-yi-yi

See me there, I ain't no fool
One smart Frenchman, never been to school
Wanna get somewhere in Creole town
Stop & let me show you your way around

Let the Bon Ton Roulez
Let the [?moule boule?] (sounds like moulay-boulay)
Dontcha be no fool-ay
Let the Bon Ton Roulez

Wanna have yourselves some real fine fun
Go down in Loo-zee-anna & get you one
Find 'em cuttin' cane all down the line
I got a cotton-picker & he's really fine

(cho)

At the church bazaar or baseball game
French la-la, well it's all the same
Wanna have fun, you gotta go
Way out in the country to the zydeco

(cho)

Well, if you wanna know what "Bon Ton Roulez" really means
Just good time rollin' like you've never seen
Grab your gal and get in the groove
& when the feelin' hits you, all you do is move

(cho, rpt, etc)

Aye-yi-yi-yi-yi-yi-yi
