Lyrics:

My spy boy saw you spy boy sittin by the bi-yo
My spy boy told your spy boy, Im gonna set you flag on fi-yo.

I said, hey now, hey now,
Aiko aiko all day, jockomo feeno na na nay, jockomo feena nay.

My grandma and your grandma were sitting by the fire
Said my grandma to your grandma, gonna get your tail on fire.

I said, hey now, hey now,
Aiko aiko all day, jockomo feeno na na nay, jockomo feena nay.

Aboput the song's origins:
"Iko Iko" is a much-covered New Orleans song that tells of a parade collision between two "tribes" of Mardi Gras Indians. The lyrics are derived from Indian chants and popular catchphrases. The song, under the original title "Jock-A-Mo", was written in 1953 by James "Sugar Boy" Crawford in New Orleans, but has spread so widely that to popular belief, it is commonly assumed to be a much older folk song.
