The term "bayou" in the title of the "Blue Bayou" is a Franco-English term for a body of water typically found in a flat, low-lying area. It has been applied to various wetlands, areas of slow-moving streams and rivers, and to marshy lakes. The term derives from the Cajun French language, where it is a loan word from Choctaw "bayouk" ("creek", "small stream"). See more

[the wolf leans Peter downward
And don't stand that way either.
