There’s a hundred thousand Frenchmen in New Orleans

In New Orleans there are Frenchmen everywhere


But your house could fall down

Your baby could drown


Wouldn’t none of those Frenchmen care


Everybody gather round

Loosen up your suspenders

Hunker down on the ground


I’m a cracker

And you are too

But don’t I take good care of you


Who built the highway to Baton Rouge


Who put up the hospital and built you schools


Who looks after shit kickers like you


The Kingfish do


Who gave a party at the Roosevelt Hotel

And invited the whole north half of the state down there for free


The people in the city

Had their eyes bugging out

Cause everyone of you

Looked just like me

Kingfish Kingfish

Everybody sing

Kingfish Kingfish

Every man a king

Who took on the Standard Oil men

And whipped their ass

Just like he promised he’d do

Ain’t no Standard Oil men gonna run this state

Gonna be run by little folks like me and you

Kingfish Kingfish

Friend of the working man

Kingfish Kingfish

The Kingfish gonna save this land
