Belle Stars ♪ Iko Iko
This is a very funny song. I first heard of it from the soundtrack of movie Rain Man, sung by Belle Stars.
Iko Iko my grandma and your grandma were sittin' by the fire. my grandma said to your grandma: “i'm gonna set your flag on fire.” (Chorus) Talkin' 'bout, hey now! hey now! —iko, iko, un-day Jock-a-mo fee-no ai na-né. jock-a-mo fee na-né.— Yock-a-mo feen-o and-dan-day look at my king all dressed in red. —iko, iko, un-day— i bet-cha five dollars he'll kill you dead. —Jock-a-mo fee na-né— … my flag boy and your flag boy were sittin' by the fire. my flag boy said to your flag boy: “i'm gonna set your flag on fire.” … See that guy all dressed in green? —iko, iko, un-day— He's not a man; He's a loving machine. —Jock-a-mo fee na-né.— …
