"They All Ask'd for You" as written by and Neville Modeliste....
Hey, Lamba
Crawfish etouffee
They all asked for you

I went on down to the Audubon Zoo
And they all asked for you
They all asked for you
(For who?)

Well, they even inquired about you
I went on down to the Audubon Zoo
And they all asked for you

The monkeys asked
The tigers asked
And the elephant asked me too

Boom, boom, boom, boom, boom
Boo, dee bee doo, poo boom
Boom, boom
Boo, dee bee doo, poo boom

Hey, Lamba (hey Lamba, hey Lamba, hey Lamba)
Red beans and rice
Creole gumbo

I went on up to the big ol' sky
And they all asked for you
(For who?)
They all asked for you

Well, they even inquire about you
I went on up to the big ol' sky
And they all asked for you

The ducks asked
The eagles asked
And the buzzard asked me too

Boom, boom, boom, boom, boom
Boo, dee bee doo, poo boom
Boom, boom
Boo, dee bee doo, poo boom

Hey, Lamba (hey Lamba, hey Lamba, hey Lamba)
Grits and fish drippings
And a crawfish boudin étouffée
Boiled willies and tomato paste
Do it
Put your hands together

I went on down to the deep blue sea
And they all asked for you (for who?)
They all asked for you
(For me?)

Well, they even inquire about you
I went on down to the deep blue sea
And they all asked for you
(For me?)

The shark asked
The whale asked
And the barracuda asked me too

They all asked for you
(Every morning)
They all asked for you
(Every morning)
Everybody there, crawling nowhere, they all ever ask for you

They all asked for you
(Every morning)
They all asked for you
(Every evening)
Everybody there, running nowhere, they all ever ask for you

    General CommentThis is such a great song. It's incredibly upbeat and they sing about animals and Louisiana Creole food -- who could ask for more?
