Words & Music by Pat Flanakin

VERSE Well, I headed on up to Arkansas
Asked about the crawfish crawl
They looked at me like I was a fool
I said wait a minute
Let me take 'ya to school
Oh the crawfish crawl

CHORUS It's a dance when you're down South y'all
When that midnight water boil
You just drop 'em in the pot, it's hot
It's the crawfish crawl

VERSE Well now, come on over honey do the crawl with me
'Cause you're the cutest critter I ever did see
You put your hands in the air
Keep our feet on the ground
Stick our butt out baby
And shake it all around
That's the crawfish crawl

BREAK (Verse)

VERSE Well now, I headed on over to the Texas state
Ev'ry body two stepped around the place
I asked about the crawfish crawl
They threw me out the barroom door
Oh the crawfish crawl

BREAK (Verse)

VERSE Well now, come on feet take me hone
Take me back where I belong
I've spent two weeks baby in these shoes
Now I've gotta get back home to Baton Rouge
Where the crawfish crawl
