Lyrics

My grand-ma and your grand-ma were sit-tin' by the fire.
My grand-ma told your grand-ma: "I'm gon-na set your flag on fire."

Talk-in' 'bout, Hey now ! Hey now ! I-ko, I-ko, un-day
Jock-a-mo fee-no ai na-né, jock-a-mo fee na-né

I'm like a Bedouin drawn to the pyramids by the tribal chant, lurking in the darkness, wondering what new magic is emanating from those ancient structures.

Iko, Iko the story, if I'm not mistaken is an old french Creole song from New Orleans about a poverished neighborhood standing up against "the man", authorities to be at the time. Fighting for the injustice to stop. It's a Creole chant that says something like "big man, big man kiss my f**king a**." Yup I'm being totally serious. Found the story behind the song one day online.
