Pack Up the Louie Lyrics

Time just flies

The cop rings and it's half past eleven
Can't believe it but the time just flies
Soon I'll be on a cruise into heaven
Hearin' stories and 1000 lies
About the things that I'd never do
Experience that I don't have
It's kinda scary, I'm the big queen Mary
Gotta get it, gotta do it fast
Gotta grab a piece of paper, I wish I could find my pen
What am I taking you? What am I waited for?

I gotta pack, gotta pack up the Louie
And I can't leave a thing behind
Gotta pack, gotta pack up the Louie
For every different change of mind
I got a pocket for every reason
Every season be another day
I gotta pack, gotta pack up the Louie
I love my Louie when I go away

Louie, Louie, Louie, pack up the Louie
We're gonna I pack it up every day
Louie, Louie, Louie, pack up the Louie
Lock it up and we're on our way
Louie, Louie, Louie, pack up the Louie
Pack it up, we're on our way
Louie, Louie, Louie, pack up the Louie
Louie, Louie, Louie, pack up the Louie

First stop is gonna be Buenos Aires
Tango listener all night long
Two days and we're heading off to Rio
Kind of running from morning 'til dawn
Then I'll slumber as queen senorita
Do Havana down the emerald way
But before I get on the line
Some gotta go, some gotta stay
So I brought a piece of paper, tear it out of my cahier
Next time, I'm not hesitating
I think I'm leaving today I gotta pack, gotta pack up the Louie
And I can't leave a thing behind
Gotta pack, gotta pack up the Louie
For every different change of mind
I got a pocket for every reason
Every season be another day
I gotta pack, gotta pack up the Louie
I love my Louie when I go away

All aboard, Buenos Aired, Rio de Janeiro, Havana and the Emerald way

I gotta get to Cameron too
And 19 of the west side
Is there a boat somewhere?
From 18 to spare
Can you help little me?
Got that spark, you know, spark in the air

I gotta pack, gotta pack up the Louie
And I can't leave a thing behind
Gotta pack, gotta pack up the Louie
For every different change of mind
I got a pocket for every reason
Every season be another day
I gotta pack, gotta pack up the Louie
I love my Louie when I go away

Louie, Louie, Louie, pack up the Louie
We're gonna I pack it up every day
Louie, Louie, Louie, pack up the Louie
Lock it up and we're on our way
Louie, Louie, Louie, pack up the Louie
Pack it up, we're on our way
Louie, Louie, Louie, pack up the Louie
And I'm the Louie, we're on our way

Thoughts & Meanings

Some of the lyrics, particularly in the first verse, invoke the sense that it is a song about the great journey of death. It is interesting to consider the rest of the lyrics and consider the experience of the narrator in this light.

Louis Vuitton Steamer Trunk...Caro is gonna Pack Up The Louie for a big cruise

Is it dirty or figurative? At face value the song is about anticipation for a once in a lifetime, exotic destination trip. The Louie is probably a reference to Louis Vuitton luggage (as referred to in the movie Leap Year). But there's a deeper level. She lists 3 exotic south american destinations but finishes the list with The Emerald Way, which is slang for a decisive moment in one's life.
