Take A City Bride (Guilbeau)


Whoa yay guy chertay bebe
Tol' mama et tol' papa
di joh dit zhay dit par bon
(This is phonetically correct but not sure of it's linguistic accuracy)

I got a house on stilts a five dollar bill
A settin' on the banks of muddy, muddy bayou
Lot better than the streets of crowded cars
Pawn shops friendly neighborhood bars

Ah, but your mama and your papa won't let me come courtin'
They say that I can't make a good livin' for their child
Ah, but the fish bites good and the crawfish are plenty
Gonna make a lot of money when I take a city bride

I gotta paint can't run your pappy's got a big dog
Snappin' at my heels get away you mangy hound
Light's still burning and the ladder by the window
Take a chance gonna make another round

Ah, but your mama and your papa won't let me come courtin'
They say that I can't make a good livin' for their child
Ah, but the fish bites good and the crawfish are plenty
Gonna make a lot of money when I take a city bride

Yeah, but your mama and your papa won't let me come courtin'
They say that I can't make a good livin' for their child
Ah, but the fish bites good and the crawfish are plenty
Gonna make a lot of money when I take a city bride
Yeah, I'll make a lot of money when I take a city bride
