(Duh duh)
(Duh duh duh)
(Duh duh)

(Duh duh)
(Duh duh duh)
(Duh duh)
Louie Louie
(Duh duh)
(Duh duh duh)
(Duh duh)
Well me gotta go
(Duh duh)
(Duh duh duh)
(Duh duh)
Fine little girl
(Duh duh)
She waits for me
(Duh duh)
I catch a ship
(Duh duh)
And cross the sea
(Duh duh)
Sail that ship
(Duh duh)
Well all alone
(Duh duh)
And never think
(Duh duh)
IÕll make it home
(Duh duh)

Louie Louie

(Duh duh)
Well me gotta go
(Duh duh)
(Duh duh duh)
(Duh duh)
Louie Louie
(Duh duh)
(Duh duh duh)
(Duh duh)
Well me gotta go

Three nights and days I sail the sea
Me think of girls a-constantly
I'm on the ship me dream she there
Me smell the rose a-in her hair

I said Louie Louie
Oh baby now me gotta go
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Louie Louie
Oh baby now me gotta go

Word
I see Jamaica
(Duh duh)
Beautiful
(Duh duh)
It won't be long
(Duh duh)
Til I see my love
(Duh duh)
I'll take her in
(Duh duh)
My arms again
(Duh duh)
I'll tell her I
(Duh duh)
Will never leave again

I said Louie Louie
(Duh duh)
(Duh duh duh)
(Duh duh)
Well me gotta go
(Duh duh)
(Duh duh duh)
(Duh duh)
Louie Louie
(Duh duh)
(Duh duh duh)
(Duh duh)
Yeah me gotta go
(Duh duh)
(Duh duh duh)
(Duh duh)
I say me gotta go now
(Duh duh)
(Duh duh duh)
(Duh duh)
Me gotta go
