Songtekst

Hahaha
Ayo, Big Wave
Tell 'em I come
Small Jam alongside JW

My bestie and your bestie
Sit down by the fire
Your bestie says she want party
So can we make these flames go higher

Talkin' 'bout hey now (Hey now)
Hey now (Hey now)
Iko iko an day
Jocomo fee no an dan day
Jocomo fee nan nay

Start my truck, let's all jump in
Here we go together
Nice cool breeze and big palm trees
I tell you: life don't get no better

Talkin' 'bout hey now (Hey now)
Hey now (Hey now)
Iko iko an day
Jocomo fee no an dan day
Jocomo fee nan nay

A keia mamang gwele
Step on the dancing floor
Hips be winding, DJ rewinding
Take it to the island way

Keio, baby mama
Put on your dancing shoes
One drop it drop it low now, take it to the max now
Jammin' the Small Jam way
Ja-ja-ja-jammin' the Small Jam way

My bestie and your bestie
Sit down by the fire
Your bestie says she want party
So can we make these flames go higher

Talkin' 'bout hey now (Hey now)
Hey now (Hey now)
Iko iko an day (Oh)
Jocomo fee no an dan day
Jocomo fee nan nay

Let me take it from here

Solomon girl straight up right hoochie mama
Make we party non stop in a island banda
Swing those hips and back it up to me ragga
A chance fi party, ladies do the Dougie Dougie

I'm jammin' island reggae reppin' blue, green and yellow
Me tappin' on me beat make ya slow wind for me, baby
Speakers pumpin', people jumpin'
We're jammin' the island way

Shoutout to the good-time crew
All across the islands
Grab your shoes, then we'll two by two
And now we're shinin' bright like diamonds

Talkin' 'bout hey now (Hey now)
Hey now (Hey now)
Iko iko an day (Oh)
Jocomo fee no an dan day
Jocomo fee nan nay (Yes)

One drop it, drop it low now
Take it to the max now
Jammin' the Small Jam way
Wind it

Wind up, go down, wind up, go down
Twist your body backwards (We go, we go)
We go left, left, we go right, right
Turn it around and forward (Wind and go down again)

Wind up, go down, wind up, go down
Twist your body backwards (Twist it back)
We go left, left, we go right, right
Turn it around and forward

My bestie and your bestie
Dancing by the fire
Your bestie says she want party
So can we make these flames go higher

Talkin' 'bout hey now (Hey now)
Hey now (Hey now)
Iko iko an day (Oh)
Jocomo fee no an dan day
Jocomo fee nan nay
Jocomo fee nan nay
Jocomo fee nan nay
Jocomo fee nan nay
