The lyrics (more or less*) the way we’ll sing them – everybody sing the first verse + chorus at least:

My spy boy met your spy boy, sitting by the fire
My spy boy told your spy boy I’m gonna set your flag on fire, talkin’ ’bout
Hey now, hey now. Iko-iko an-dé.
Jock-a-mo fino an dan dé. Jock-a-mo fin an dé.

My Grandma and your grandma, sitting by the fire
My Grandma told your grandma I’m gonna set your flag on fire, talkin’ ’bout…

Look at my queen all dressed in red, iko-iko an-dé
Bet you five dollars she’ll kill you dead.
Jock-a-mo fino an dan dé. talkin’ ’bout…
(chorus)
