Some people think they jive me
But I know they must be crazy
Don't see dey misfortune
Guess they just too lazy

Je suis le grand zombie
My yellow belted choison
Ain't afraid of no tomcat
Fill my brains with poison

Walk through the fire
Fly through the smoke
See my enemy
At the end of dey rope

Walk on pins and needles
See what they can do
Walk on gilded splinters
With the king of the Zulu

Everybody come, you may kill it, come, come
Walk on gilded splinters

'Til I burn up ('til I burn up, 'til I burn up, 'til I burn up)

I roll out of my coffin
Drink poison in my chalice
Pride begins to fade
And y'all feel my malice

Put gris-gris on your doorstep
Soon you'll be in the gutter
Melt your heart like butter
A-a-and I can make you stutter

Everybody come, you may kill it, come, come
Walk on gilded splinters
Come, you may kill it, come, come
Walk on gilded splinters
Come, you may kill it, come, come
Walk on gilded splinters

'Til I burn up ('til I burn up, 'til I burn up, 'til I burn up)
Kill it, come, come
Walk on gilded splinters

Coco Robichaux
Come on down to my soiree
Bring your parain, your marraine, your mamie, your daddy, your cousin
And the whole family
No fine de cose bonne
La jovial la chandelle
C'est la fée Carabosse
Coco Robichaux
Coco Robichaux
Padre diablo
Gran come the bride

With your Coco Robichaux
With your Coco Robichaux

'Til I burn up ('til I burn up, 'til I burn up, 'til I burn up)
Way on down mia tana
Come, come, padre diablo

'Til I burn up ('til I burn up, 'til I burn up, 'til I burn up)

Everybody come, you may kill it, come, come
Gotta walk on gilded splinters
Come, you may kill it, come, come
Walk on gilded splinters
Coco Robichaux
Dine at the soiree on the bayou
Bring your parain, your marraine, your mamie, your padre diablo
Mamie, your pappy, your padre diablo
Here come the bride
La jovial la chandelle
C'est la fée Carabosse
And his cold salon
Fini
Fini

'Til I burn up ('til I burn up, 'til I burn up, 'til I burn up)
Gilded splinters
Walk on gilded splinters
Walk on gilded splinters

Coco Robichaux
Padre diablo
Walk on gilded splinters

'Til I burn up ('til I burn up, 'til I burn up, 'til I burn up)
Come, you may kill it, come, come
Walk on gilded splinters

(Come, you may kill it, come, come)
Coco Robichaux
(Walk on gilded splinters)
(Come, you may kill it, come, come)
(Walk on gilded splinters)
La femme a les finis
La cold salon
C'est la fée Carabosse
Comme le grand
Parain at marraine, mamie, nannie too
Un padre diablo
Cryin' on the road
Parain at marraine, mamie, nannie
An ochre
Parain, mamie, nannie, pappy
