Boogie Woogie Gator

Lyrics: Laurence - Music: Laurence and yeP!

Appears on...




Way down in the bayou with a mangrove high
There live a scaly fellow just a-drinkin' his wine.
With two google eyes and four funky feet
He's a-rockin all day long to the cajun bayou beat.

He's the Boogie Woogie Gator
The Boogie Woogie Gator...
The Boogie Woogie Gator be a-two-step 'til the mornin' come.

With a half a jug of ripple and the two-step his game
Everyone at Tipitina's done know his name.
On Basin Street he jump up with the slide trombone
But he stop at the Hypnotic Clambake on the way home.

Chorus

The Gator keep a-dancin' each and every day
'Coz chef Mobie on his tail with the gumbo soufle.
He got to keep dancin' he Don't want to get ate
But he stop by for some country funk to keep him up late.

The Boogie Woogie Gator be a-comin' for you
Make you tap your head and make you stomp your shoe.
So if you got a two-step come on and take a chance
'Coz he Don't wanna eat you, he just wanna make you dance!

Chorus

The Boogie Woogie Gator
The jambalaya gator
The Mardi Gras gator
The rent party gator
The Goonygoogoo gator
The Lisa-peppy gator
The mutha funkin' gator
The Boogie Woogie Gator now!

He's the Boogie Woogie Gator
The Boogie Woogie Gator...
The Boogie Woogie Gator be a-two-step 'til the mornin' come.
