The Bayou Song


Hi! I’m Matt Corriel and today I wanted to share with you
another one of my tunes! This is a song I wrote called,
The Bayou Song. Recently, I asked my friends on Facebook if there were any tunes of mine
that it would bring them joy to hear and The Bayou Song got a couple shout-outs. It’s in Gb major, for those keeping count,
and the whole purpose of the tune was I wanted to write a lyric
with the word “bayou” in it and the whole tune grew up around that. I think that’s all I have to say. Again, we hear this great music
coming from the other room. I wish we could do both. I’m gonna drown her out
with The Bayou Song. Here we go. Everybody’s got a little thing
that they’re afraid to do and, baby, I wanna do that thing with you so you can say you finally lived for a while. I have always found some words
are hard to say. Help me say I found my faith today and I’ll make it all worth your while. Take a piece. Take a chance.
Take a single go at it. You’ve gotta live before you die. When opportunity calls you, baby,
what are you gonna do? I can be tender. With your total surrender I’ll take you down to the bayou, baby, if you wanna make love under a southern sun. Aw, you can go anywhere, do anything.
Stay anyhow. If you want it, you can have it,
but you’re gonna have to have it now. (It’s about sex.) Only a little kid
would wish upon a star but, hell, with times being
what they are I guess I’ll give it a try. Cause I’ll take a little help
when and if it comes and if I get too much
then I’ll save you some and pass it on by and by. Aw, take a piece. Take a chance.
Take another go at it. Everyone deserves two tries. You say you’re not really ready
for a serious steady but so you can discover
we are right for each other I’ll take you down to the bayou, baby, if you wanna make love under a southern sun. Aw, you can go anywhere, do anything.
Stay anyhow. If you want it, you can have it,
but you’re gonna have to have it now. Yeah! If you want it, you can have it,
but you’re gonna have to have it now. [Piano solo] Yeah, yeah! Whoa! Take a piece. Take a chance.
Take another go at it. You’ve gotta live before you die. Opportunity calls you!
What’cha gonna do? Oh, and I can be tender.
With your absolute surrender I’ll take you down to the bayou, baby, if you wanna make love under a southern sun. Aw, you can go anywhere, do anything.
Stay anyhow. If you want it, you can have it,
but you’re gonna have to have it now! Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. If you want it, you can have it,
but you’re gonna have to have it now. That’s The Bayou Song.
