You feel so good, Lafayette, now I've come to greet you
Tell all my friends I've come back again
I couldn't stay away, I was gone only a day
But I'm comin' back to my sweet Lafayette

I'm goin' down to Lafayette, I don't care how long I'm gone
It's so hard to leave you, Lafayette, now I know where I belong
When that sweet fiddle sounds and Clifton gets down
That music sounds so good to me, I just might dance until three
And I gotta get back to my sweet Lafayette

Oh, those boys in Lafayette, smilin' so pretty
Those sweet boys in Lafayette, they sure do look good to me
We danced all night long to a sweet Cajun song
Drinkin' and jivin' 'til dawn, I could dance on and on
Doin' a two-step in my sweet Lafayette
Take me back Lafayette, way down on the bayou
I'm your girl, Lafayette, I'm gonna hang around you
Eat that gumbo and rollin' and tumble
And do crazy things every night, soon I'll be feelin' alright
When I get back to my sweet Lafayette
When I get back to my sweet Lafayette
