fe na ne

Iko Iko is one of the best-known Mardi Gras songs - but not that many people realize that it came from the masking Indians.

The lyrics are somewhat garbled today, but a flag boy is still an essential part of every tribe.

One of my favorite things about this version - by the Dixie Cups - "found" percussion (drumsticks on a glass ashtray).
