SATURDAY NIGHT FISH FRY (Jordan / Walsh) If you've ever been down to New Orleans Then you can understand just what I mean All through the week it's as quiet as a mouse But on Saturday night they go from house to house You don't have to pay when you only mention If you're a cook or a waiter or a good musician If you just happen to be passing by Stop in at the Saturday night fish fry It was rocking, it was rocking You never seen such scuffling and shuffling 'Til the break of dawn It was rocking, it was rocking You never seen such scuffling and shuffling 'Til the break of dawn Now my buddy and me was on the bandstand Fooling around, just me and him We decided we could use something to eat So we went to a house on Rampart Street We knocked on the door and it opened with ease A light-skinned miss said 'Come in, please' Before we could even bat an eye We was right in the middle of a big fish fry It was rocking, it was rocking You never seen such scuffling and shuffling 'Til the break of dawn It was rocking, it was rocking You never seen such scuffling and shuffling 'Til the break of dawn Now the woman was screaming and jumping and yelling The bottles were flying and the fish were smelling From way up above all the noise they made Somebody hollered 'Better get outta here, this is a raid' I didn't know we were breaking the law Somebody reached over and hit me on the jaw They had locked up from the front and the back Putting them in the wagon like potato sacks It was rocking, it was rocking You never seen such scuffling and shuffling 'Til the break of dawn It was rocking, it was rocking You never seen such scuffling and shuffling 'Til the break of dawn I knew I could away if I had the chance But I was shaking like I had St. Vitus' Dance I tried to crawl under a bathtub A policeman said 'Hey, now where you going, bud?' They got us outta there like a house on fire And put us all in that black mariah They might of missed one or two But they got both me and my buddy too It was rocking, it was rocking You never seen such scuffling and shuffling 'Til the break of dawn It was rocking, it was rocking You never seen such scuffling and shuffling 'Til the break of dawn Well we headed for jail in a dazed condition They booked each one of us on suspicion My chick came down and she went my bail Finally got me outta that rotten jail If you ever wanna go get a fist in your eye Just mention a Saturday night fish fry I don't care how many fish in the sea Don't ever mention a fish to me It was rocking, it was rocking You never seen such scuffling and shuffling 'Til the break of dawn It was rocking, it was rocking You never seen such scuffling and shuffling 'Til the break of dawn It was rocking, it was rocking You never seen such scuffling and shuffling 'Til the break of dawn
