Kingsmen version

Louie Louie, oh baby,
Me Gotta Go ... Ay yi yi yi yi
Louie Louie, oh baby,
Me Gotta Go ... Ay yi yi yi yi

A fine little girl, she waits for me
Me catch the ship for cross the sea
Me sail the ship all alone
Me never think me make it home

Louie Louie, oh baby,
Me Gotta Go ... Ay yi yi yi yi
Louie Louie, oh baby,
Me Gotta Go ... Ay yi yi yi yi

Three nights and days me sail the sea
Me think of girl constantly
On the ship I dream she there
I smell the roses in her hair

Louie Louie, oh baby,
Me Gotta Go ... Ay yi yi yi yi
Louie Louie, oh baby,
Me Gotta Go ... Ay yi yi yi yi

(Guitar solo)

Me see Jamaica moon above
It won't be long me see my love
I take her in my arms and then
Me tell her I'll never leave again

Louie Louie, oh baby,
Me Gotta Go ... Ay yi yi yi yi
Louie Louie, oh baby,
Me Gotta Go ... Ay yi yi yi yi

Richard Berry Version

Fine little girl she waits for me
Me catch the ship for cross the sea
Me sail the ship all alone
Me never think me make it home

Louie, Louie, me gotta go
Louie, Louie, me gotta go

Three nights and days me sail the sea
Me think of girl constantly
On the ship I dream she there
I smell the roses in her hair

Louie, Louie, me gotta go
Louie, Louie, me gotta go

Me see Jamaica moon above
It won't be long, me see my love,
I take her in my arms and then
Me tell her I never leave again

Louie, Louie, me gotta go
Louie, Louie, me gotta go
