Adalida    (1994)

Adalida, pretty little Cajun queen.
Sweet Dixie flower, the belle of the bayou,
You're every young man's dream.
Adalida, I'd walk through a hurricane,
To stand beside you, sweet Adalida,
I'd swim the Pontchartrain.

Oh no, here you're comin' down the road,
With your cotton dress a swishin',
You gettin some attention from all the boys in Thibodaux.
Oh my, you're really fillin' up their eyes.
Smilin' and a winkin', I know what they're thinkin',
But I'm the only one who loves you so!

Adalida, pretty little Cajun queen.
Sweet Dixie flower, the belle of the bayou,
You're every young man's dream.
Adalida, I'd walk through a hurricane,
To stand beside you, sweet Adalida,
I'd swim the Pontchartrain.

Oh no, the hottest little dish I know.
I know you can tell it, you're makin' me so jealous,
From my head down to my toes.
Oh me, you could make a redneck green,
The way that your a-lookin', you got me a-cookin',
And I ain't talkin 'bout Etoufee'.

Adalida, pretty little Cajun queen.
Sweet Dixie flower, the belle of the bayou,
You're every young man's dream.
Adalida, I'd walk through a hurricane,
To stand beside you, sweet Adalida,
I'd swim the Pontchartrain.

Adalida, pretty little Cajun queen.
Sweet Dixie flower, the belle of the bayou,
You're every young man's dream.
Adalida, I'd walk through a hurricane,
To stand beside you, sweet Adalida,
I'd swim the Pontchartrain.

To stand beside you, sweet Adalida,
To stand beside you, sweet Adalida,
Just to stand beside of my sweet Adalida,
I'd swim the Pontchartrain.
