Way down in Louisiana
Down in Cajun land
Folks got something goin'
Goes something like
Folks come an git'cha tootsie

I wants to t'tie ya puppe'tame me
I'm diggin' on a scoobydoo
Diggin' on'a scubadie
Ooh boog-a-boo you
You ooh boog-a-boo you, little boy
Get hip to the consultation of the boolawee

Said, golly, sweet Charlie
There's a thing it's called copesetic now
Boog-a-boo, look at you
What I'd like to do to you boy
Ooh boog-a-boo you
You ooh boog-a-boo you, hey baby
Get hip to the consultation of the boolawee

Your pappy's doing time in the pokey
Your family got busted
Ya'll can't be trusted
What I like to do to you, boy
You ooh boog-a-boo you
You ooh boog-a-boo you, baby
Get hip to the consultation of the boolawee

Niki, Niki, Niki
Niki, Niki Hoeky
