New Orleans

Theres me
Tripping on a cloud
Im laughing, tumbling down
Ive fallen on your doorstep
New Orleans
It stretches beneath my feet

I am the king of Bourbon Street
I strike a match
And all the street lights catch
Theres you
Dancing on a roof
You say you love me 100 proof

You move inside a nightgown
Reveal yourself to the town
A trumpet speaks
Its voice rising up over Bourbon Street
Your ride the sound
And throw your love on down
