Louie Louie

Louie Louie, me gotta go
Louie Louie, me gotta go
A fine girl, she wait for me
Me catch the ship across the sea
I sailed the ship all alone
I never think I'll make it home
Louie Louie, don't leave me
Louie Louie, me gotta ride

Three nights and days we sailed the sea
Me think of girl constantly
On the ship, I dream she there
I smell the rose in her hair
Louie Louie, don't leave me
Louie Louie, me gotta ride

Me see Jamaican moon above
It won't be long me see my love
Me take her in my arms and then
I tell her I never leave again
Louie Louie, don't leave me, me gotta ride
Louie Louie, don't leave me, me gotta go
