The song "Iko Iko" was a New Orleans song written in the 1950s.
Its mysterious words --
"Jockamo, fee-no ai" - are thought to be Cajun, a mixture of Creole,
French and English.
After 50 years of folk singers, the original author
of the song was tracked down by offBeat magazine. They asked him
what does "Jock-a-Mo" mean? Is it Mardi Gras Indian lingo? Does it mean
court jester? "What does it mean?"
