Say, there's a place in New Orleans That serves fried chicken with turnip greens Crawfish bisque that treats you right And Papa Joe plays there every night A little dark haired cutie says step right in And you can bet a whole dollar She'd be your friend Everybody there has a comical time Down at Papa Joe's

Papa Joe's got a swinging band You can rock and roll to Dixieland The customer know it's the place to go Down at Papa Joe's A little waitress comes to set you down She's got the best frog legs in town There's a welcome sign hanging on the door So don't you be afraid to ask for more Now the only time Joe closes at night Is when the police comes And turns out the light They get a little mad but they don't fight Down at Papa Joe's It's thicker than fleas on a monkey's back But the folks down there, they like it like that They live it up and they all come back Down at Papa Joe's
