Lyrics:

Well the rains came and the wind howled and they said everybody get ready

Now you all know her name She's taking dead aim and it ain't gonna be pretty

Before the levees broke somebody mis-spoke and said it looks like we dodged a bullet

Then the floods came and the life we knew was washed away in a minute

Bridge:
Looked like the whole world froze for a while as the people were carried away

And we knew for the ones who would no longer smile we'd have to bring New Orleans back one day.

I hope they here us singing

Chorus:
Hey labas it's Mardi Gras - Mardi Gras in the city

It seems Mother Nature had a different plan - ain't that a pity

Well she knocked us down but don't count us out if you do you're gonna look silly

You can't break the spirit of New Orleans and Mardi Gras in the city


Bridge:
Looked like the whole world was on our side when the Saints came home to stay

And with hope and faith in the Lord above you know we're finally back on our way

Come on and sing it now

Chorus:
Hey labas it's Mardi Gras - Mardi Gras in the city

It seems Mother Nature had a different plan - ain't that a pity

Well she knocked us down but don't count us out if you do you're gonna look silly

You can't break the spirit of New Orleans and Mardi Gras in the city

You can't break the spirit of New Orleans and Mardi Gras in the city

Hey labas it's Mardi Gras - repeat……………
