En, de, twa, kat
Bonjou or Bonswa
Where my Creoles?!
Well sing it with me cher

Chorus:
Oh oh, yeah yeah, oh yeah
I AM CREOLE

Verse 1:
Let’s take it to the floor
I love to listen to zydeco
There’s things about us that you may not know
I AM CREOLE

From the lightest to the darkest complexion
Look on the map we go in all directions
Some wish they would...
Have a culture this good
..with the food boudin, etouffee
Ooh I wish you could

REPEAT CHORUS

Shouts out to Louisiana
New Orleans, the whole Acadiana
Lake Charles and Lafayette
Houma, Breaux Bridge, and Generette
Baton Rouge, I can’t miss
Thibodeaux, Shreveport, Natchitoches
All the Creoles in the US
Mississippi, Cali and Texas

Bridge:
it’s time to go, grab someone and hit the floor
on the count of four it’s time for you to do the Zydeco
En, de, twa, kat

Call & Response / Chant:
WHERE THEY AT NAH…..Where they at? (Repeat 4x)

Say we GET COOYON FOR THE CULTURE!
..cuz we CAN'T FORGET WHAT IT TAUGHT US! (Repeat 2x)

Say I AM, I AM, CREOLE, CREOLE (Repeat 2x)

I sat there with my parrain chillin’ on that bayou
Said..my parrain told me right there...you can’t let them people define you

Say I AM, I AM, CREOLE, CREOLE (Repeat 2x)

People all over the world... ask me what I am
Say... I AM CREOLE!... I AM CRE-OLE SO!! (Repeat 2x)

I AM CREOLE!!
