"Shout Bamalama" as written by and Otis Redding....
shout bamalama

he's down in alabama
shoutin' bamalama
way down in louisana
well, well, well
nobody's gonna set him down

lord have mercy on my soul
how many chickens have i stole
one last night and the night before
i'm going back and tryin' to get 10, 11 more
startin' to get 'em and i

i love a chicken, baby
shoutin' bamalama
well, well, well
nobody's gonna set him down

9 feet, 10 feet we're goin' for the build
9 feet left on a 10 feet of hill
10 feet turn around a 9 feet fence
his teeth fell out, but his tongue stayed in
it's gettin' said so...

he got the chicken, baby
shoutin' bamalama
well, well, well
nobody's gonna set him down

leo demarket rode a line one day
bad little fella comin' down the way
we were talkin' 'bout the family, its a cryin' shame
he tell ya, "mother is workin' on the chain gang"
she busts his britches now
she's good at workin' hard

shoutin' bamalama
well, well, well
nobody's gonna set him down

the preacher and the deacon were prayin' one day
along come a bear comin' down that way
the preacher told the deacon to say a prayer
he said, "lord, a prayer wont kill this bear"
i gotta make it, baby
shout bamalama
i gotta run for it
well, well, well
nobody's gonna set him down
