??!! I Said Howdy He Said Hey Now, Hey Now

I will now ignore the taboo about writing about one’s own dreams because this dream is too weird and hilarious and musical to ignore.
I’m on my brother’s sailboat in South Florida and there’s Two Gallants, one of my favorite bands and a pair genuinely good guys. The Gallants, my brother, and I are all really happy to be there, floating along, basking in the South Florida sun, until the band realize they forgot the words to the song they were about to play.
“Don’t worry,” I say. “You can just sing ‘Paul Revere’ to the tune of ‘Iko Iko.’ We all know how it goes.”
So we start:
Here’s a little story I got to tell
About three bad brothers you know so well
It started way back
With Adrock, MCA, and me, Mike D
We had a little horsie named Paul Revere
Just me and my horsie and a quart of beer
Ridin’ cross the land
Kickin’ up sand
Sheriff’s posse on my tail because I’m in demand
Talkin’ bout hey now! Hey now! Iko iko inay
Jackamo fina nay
I woke up sing-rapping this freakish mash-up and it totally works. You can go on with all the lyrics and they synch up perfectly to “Iko Iko.” I must’ve known this unconsciously but I’d never put the two together before. Man, my brain is fucked up/awesome.
