Bayou Lena
Transcribed by: Chris Cooper


Hey Hey-a Bayou Lena
Ain't she a beautiful girl
C'mon take it up to New Orleans
And drink a bottle of cheap red wine

Well, she walked in to the room wearing a gator skin suit
Barfly's slack jaws droppin' to the floor
With the grease on her fingers and lipstick on her toes
When the lights turned red, she began to take it off

She dances in the corner makin' minimum wage
Back home with seven hungry mouths to feed

Hey Hey-a Bayou Lena
Ain't she a beautiful girl
C'mon and take it up to New Orleans
And drink a bottle of cheap red wine

She likes to shimmy in the shadows 'til the brink of day
Cockfight pretty woman that I love
With a pissed off disposition and a shit eatin' grin
With a smile on her face she looks you in the eye

Dangling in the corner makin' minimum wage
Back home with seven hungry mouths to feed

Hey-a Bayou Lena
Ain't she a beautiful girl
C'mon and take it up to New Orleans
And drink a bottle of cheap red wine

Well now, there's blood sittin' on the barstool
You know she's looking for Ms. Lana Lee
Yeah, spinnin' wheel spinnin' on the liquor machine
Sayin' what goes up, must come down

With this little southern show in a gator skin suit
Jailbird vagrants stompin' to the floor
Mixin' drinks with muddy water and kitchen cigarettes
At the night of joy, what a night of joy

Dances in the corner makin' minimum wage
Back home with seven hungry mouths to feed

Hey-a Bayou Lena
Ain't she a beautiful girl
C'mon take it up to New Orleans
Let's drink a bottle of cheap red wine

Hey-a Bayou Lena
Ain't she a beautiful girl
C'mon take it up to New Orleans
Let's drink a bottle of cheap red wine

Hey Bayou Lena
Ain't it a beautiful world
It's still a beautiful world
It's still a beautiful world
