Now, your grandma's, and my grandma's,

sittin' by the fire

My grandma told your grandma,

"I'm gonna set your flag on fire."


Hey, now (hey now) Hey now, (hey now)

Iko-iko an dey (yeah)

Chakko mo fino, ah-nah-ney

Chakko mo fi-nah-ney


Now, your flag boy and my flag boy

Was sittin' by the fire

My flag boy told your flag boy

"I'm gonna set your flag on fire."


Hey, now (hey now) Hey now, (hey now)

Iko-iko an dey (yeah)

Chakko mo fino, ah-nah-ney

Chakko mo fi-nah-ney

(Hey, hey now)


Now, look at my king,

All dressed in red

Iko-Iko an-dey

I betcha' five dollars,

He'll kill ya dead

Chakko mo fi-nah-ney


Hey, now (hey now) Hey now, (hey now)

Iko-iko an dey (hey)

Chakko mo fino, ah-nah-ney

Chakko mo fi-nah-ney

IKO!
