Big Mamou (Grand Mamou)    (1952)

...
Grand Mamou

You went away and left me in Big Mamou
Yes, you left me for another, left me alone and oh, so blue
Please come back, hey, cheri, come on back
Make me happy and live with me in Big Mamou

...
Grand Mamou

You can have your dirty rice and crackers, too
You can have your file gumbo and your cold black coffee, too
Please come back, hey cheri, come on back
Make me happy and live with me in Big Mamou

...
Grand Mamou

(1)
On va toute aller a Grand Mamou,
Jolie monde, jolie fille, moi j'connait pas fais pa sa.
Eh ha ha, oh mignonne,
Ah bien moi j'men va la bas a Grand Mamou.

(2)
Why'd you go away and leave me in big Mamou,
You went away and left me alone and so blue.
Please come back, oh baby come on back,
Come on back and live with me in big Mamou.

(3)
Oh moi j'men va la bas a Grand Mamou,
Moi j'men va toute seule, en jonglant ca q'ta fait.
Si tu voudrait r'venir, avec moi a Grand Mamou,
J'serait content de t'avoir pour me femme.

(4)
Yeah I'm going to, to the big Mamou,
I'm going all alone, thinking of what you've done.
If you want to come back, with me to big Mamou,
I'd be happy, to have you for my wife.

(5)
Oh 'tite cherie, villaine maniere,
Tu va pleurer un jour, pour toute ca q'ta fait.
Et moi j'men va, dans les chemins toute seule,
Et moi j'men va la bas a Grand Mamou.
