My pickup truck

Hello, does anyone have the original lyrics to the Cajun two step called my pickup truck, also know as the mernentau two step? Thanks, greatly appreciated!

Re: My pickup truck

Are you talking about Cinquante Piastres from Bonsoir Catin?

Because, if you are, then here you go.

Cinquante Piastres, mes vieux cuillotes, et mon pick-up truck
C'est tous que j'ai a mon nom,
Cinquante Piastres, mes vieus cuillotes et mon pick-up truck,
C'est tous que me reste asteur t'es gone.

Je croyais pas que j'etais un millionnaire
Tit' fille, quand on s'a marie.
Mais, le jour tu m'as quitté, ouais, pour un autre,
C'est la mon payer a change.

J'ai vendu le swimming pool, ils ont pris le bateau,
Je reste dans une vielle cabane au Grand Coteau,
Le pretre, il m'a dit, "You're out of luck",
Cinquante piastres, mes vieux culottes, et mon pickup truck
