Suitors

There are suitors at my door
Olaya bahia
Six or eight or maybe more
Olaya bahia
And my father wants me wed
Olayo bahia
Or at least that’s what he said

Chorus:
Olay olah olayoh bahia
Olay olah. Olayo bahia
Olay olah alaya bahia
Olay olah alaya bahia

And I told him that I will
Olaya bahia
When the rivers run uphill
Olaya bahia
Or the fish begin to fly
Olaya bahia
Or the day before I die
Olaya bahia

Irrigation runs uphill
Olaya bahia
Doesn’t that give you a thrill
Olaya bahia
And fish do really fly
Olaya bahia
And tomorrow I might die
Olaya bahia

Now I am old and grey
Olaya bahia
And I’m single to this day
Olaya bahia
And my father wants me wed
Olaya bahia\
But I told him no instead
Olaya bahia
