Dr. Jazz 
    (Holland) 
     
      Give me iko 
      I wanna ball the wall here 
      Shuffle in Dumaine 
      Hear the hookacumbi 
      Meet my tipatina 
      Love her hold her tightly 
      Wanna see her swaying 
      In New Orleans nightly 

      You know I wanna be there 
      Drinking in the morning 
      Holler in the evening 
      Dr. Jazz Dr. Jazz 
      Bake my jelly roll 
      You quicken my pulse 
      You make my rhythm slow 
      Crawfish gumbo 
      Rhythm from the jungle 
      Big chief rocking 
      I follow the voodoo king 
      Oolamalawaladollar 
      Thatís what the fez he sing 

      How long must it be 
      How long must I wait 
      Till Highway 49 takes me to your gate 
      I eat a bowl of gumbo 
      That creole child will serve 
      Sit on the verandah 
      Happy in a dixie world 

      Maybe on Sunday 
      Head for Baton Rouge 
      Dancing with the cajun 
      Twist away my blues 
      Then a drop of rain 
      A trickle in my eye 
      I look up and smile 
      At the rhythm that never, never dies
