Song Lyric Sunday – Lady Marmalade

This week for Song Lyric Sunday, Jim Adams has prompted us with Dreams/Lullaby/Sleep. I like this theme! I have gone with the great Patti La Belle’s Lady Marmalade with famous lyrics “Voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir?”. We all know it means “Will you sleep with me tonight?” but I don’t think they will be sleeping much so hope it still fits the category!

Lyrics

Lady Marmalade

(Voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir)
Patti La Belle


Hey Sister, Go Sister, Soul Sister, Go Sister
Hey Sister, Go Sister, Soul Sister, Go Sister

He met Marmalade down in old New Orleans
Struttin' her stuff on the street
She said 'Hello,
Hey Joe, you wanna give it a go? Mmm, mmm

Itchi Gitchi Ya Ya Da Da
Itchi Gitchi Ya Ya here
Mocha-choca-lata Ya Ya
Creole Lady Marmalade

Voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir?
Voulez-vous coucher avec moi?

He sat in her boudoir while she freshened up
The boy drank all her magnolia-wine
On the black satin sheets where oh I swear he started to freak

Itchi Gitchi Ya Ya Da Da
Itchi Gitchi Ya Ya here
Mocha-choca-lata Ya Ya
Creole Lady Marmalade

Voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir?
Voulez-vous coucher avec moi?

Hey, hey, hey
Touching her skin feelin' silky smooth
The colour of cafe au lait
Made the savage beast inside
Roar until it cried, more, more, more

Now he's back home doing 9 to 5
Living his grey flannel life
But when he turns off to sleep
Old memories creep, more, more, more

Itchi Gitchi Ya Ya Da Da
Itchi Gitchi Ya Ya here
Mocha-choca-lata Ya Ya
Creole Lady Marmalade

Voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir?
Voulez-vous coucher avec moi?
Voulez-vous couchez avec moi ce soir?
Creole Lady Marmalade

Voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir?
Voulez-vous coucher avec moi?
Voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir?
Voulez-vous coucher avec moi?
Voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir?
Voulez-vous coucher avec moi?
Voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir?
Voulez-vous coucher avec moi?

Itchi Gitchi Ya Ya Da Da
Itchi Gitchi Ya Ya here
Mocha-choca-lata Ya Ya
Itchi Gitchi Ya Ya here

      Thank you Jim. I just couldn’t post last week, but I love your song lyric challenge! So much fun. I think this song was used in another prompt some weeks ago but it definitely relates to β€˜sleeping’ 🀣

    I love the original but I am more of a fan of the 2001 remake. Maybe because I love Christina’s vocals more. But Patti is talented too.
