    @ Chimino .... Sugar Boy WHO "original"??? This is a traditional Mardi Gras Indian song from WAY before that guy was ever a dream in his daddy's hand.

    This is based on a New Orleans folk melody commonly used for celebrations like parades. The "Jock-a-mo fee-na-nay" chorus, so central to the song's refrain, is a subject of long debate. Scholars have proposed various linguistic origins, suggesting, alternately, that it the phrase is Native American, West African, or a creolization of those languages with New Orleans French. Hypotheses about its meaning range from "Kiss my ass" to "Very good" to "The fool will not play today." http://www.songfacts.com/detail.php?id=8955
