I broke the doldrums of my dreary dreams
The london bridge kept fallin' down
I blew my coop and flew to new orleans
To feast my heart on higher ground
I wanna thank you for the love you bring
Louisiana is a song I sing
Me oh my I don't know what to do
But love you
Voila! the marshal frand of mardi gras
A royal rascal smack dab in his prime
One billon blue doubloons and a single straw
In a royal flask of cajun wine

I wanna thank you for the love we made
Louisiana is a sweet parade
Me oh my I don't know what to do
But love you
I wanna thank you for the love you shine
Louisiana is a love of mine
Me oh my I don't know what to do
But love you
Oh mardi gras!
