I love the way she calls my name I love the way she talk She's three parts wild, one part tame I love the way she walk Chorus (2X) Bayou Baby Bayou -- Ma Bayou Belle Since I saw her dancin' in the moonlight Down by the wishing well She's on my mind day an' night I'm underneath her spell Chorus (2X) Bayou Baby... She's fine as she can be Built up solid off the ground Hair down to her knees Soft like eider down Chorus (2X) Bayou Baby... I walked up to her, stars in my eyes I said, Baby, how you want your rollin' done? She looked straight into my heart Whispered in my ear -- Roll me from sun to sun Chorus (2X) Bayou Baby Bayou -- Ma Bayou Belle
