Note: Jones: 'This is just a little play song that comes from St. Simons Island. I don't know all of it. The words mean they're going to make a lot of money and carry it back to the island, carry it back to their gal. A lot of the folks eat alligator tail, and the song means they are going to have a big alligator party.'
