This is a very funny song. I first heard of it from the soundtrack of movie Rain Man, sung by Belle Stars.

Belle Stars ♪ Iko Iko
Iko Iko

my grandma and your grandma were sittin' by the fire.
my grandma said to your grandma: “i'm gonna set your flag on fire.”

 Talkin' 'bout, hey now! hey now!
 — iko, iko, un-day Jock-a-mo fee-no ai na-né. jock-a-mo fee na-né.—
Yock-a-mo feen-o and-dan-day

look at my king all dressed in red. — iko, iko, un-day—
i bet-cha five dollars he'll kill you dead. — Jock-a-mo fee na-né—


my flag boy and your flag boy were sittin' by the fire.
my flag boy said to your flag boy: “i'm gonna set your flag on fire.”


See that guy all dressed in green? — iko, iko, un-day—
He's not a man; He's a loving machine. — Jock-a-mo fee na-né.—


Title: Iko Iko. Lyrics: James Crawford. Music: Lloyd Price. Date: ~1950.
