Jimmy Buffett Creola Lyrics

Last updated:

By: Jimmy Buffett, Ralph MacDonald, William Salter
Chorus:
Creola
In my sola
I loved what they were sayin'
I loved what they were playin'
Creola

Creola
On my victrola
Makes me feel like dancin'
Fall in love romancin' the melody
Creola, Creola, Creola for me

I remember as a child all the happiness and smiles
Flowed around my grandma's Sunday table
While Auntie Mae was sayin' grace
Papa T would sneak a taste
Catch a funny look from my cousin Mabel

Then daddy'd beat the drum
The old folks start to hum
Sing the only song that we all knew
Ambiance so fine, dancin' drinkin' wine
Sing about the lifestyle on the bayou

Chorus:
Creola (creola)
In my sola (sola)
Loved what they were sayin' (sayin')
Loved what they were playin' (playin')
Creola

Creola (creola)
On my Victrola (Victrola)
Makes me feel like dancin' (dancin')
Fall in love romancin' the melody
(Do do do do, do do do do)
Creola, Creola (Creola), Creola for me

It's in the mood, it's in the blood
It's in the food, it's in the mud
It's a spicy kind of life
Creola

It's in the mood, it's in the blood
It's in the food, it's in the mud
Creola, Creola, Creola for me

(pan instrumental)

The years have come and gone
Still the old song lingers on
I keep it in my heart with fond affection
Like the family good luck charm
That keeps away the harm
Creola's always there for my protection

Chorus:
Creola (Creola)
Good for your sola (sola)
Loved what they were sayin' (sayin')
Loved what they were playin' (playin')
Creola

Creola (Creola)
On my Victrola (Victrola)
Makes me feel like dancin' (dancin')
Fall in love romancin' the melody
(Do do do do, do do do do)
Creola, Creola (Creola), Creola for me

It's in the mood, it's in the blood
It's in the food, it's in the mud
It's a spicy kind of life
Creola

Just repeat the words I say
About a thousand times a day
Creola, Creola

It's in the mood, it's in the blood
It's in the food, it's in the mud
It's a spicy kind of life
Creola

Just forget about the mumbo jumbo
Hello to the world of gumbo
Creola, Creola

It's in the mood, it's in the blood
It's in the food, it's in the mud
It's a spicy kind of life
Creola

It's in the mood, it's in the blood
It's in the food, it's in the mud
Creola, Creola
