That's what makes the Mardi Gras the craziest thing you ever saw.

Mardi Gras by me

There's an older couple on vacation,
A homeless man facing starvation,
A young girl with three kids
Too young to talk.

Exchange students from foreign nations,
And half the southern population
Must be down on Bourbon,
Ready to rock.

And rock they will
Right up until
The last bead is thrown
And the last bar is closed.

That's what makes the Mardi Gras
The craziest thing you ever saw.
A party full of greed -
You need
The beads.
The alcohol is overflowing,
And wait 'til you see what they're showing -
More skin than you'd believe,
Both he
And she.
For awhile they all love each other,
Everyone is someone's brother.
From Mr. Mayor
To the guy passed out on Bourbon Street.

The whites and blacks, Hispanics, Asians,
The boys in blue down at the station,
They're all out there
Throwing their cares away.

It's all about the scintillation
And who can last the duration -
From the beginning
All the way to Fat Tuesday.

And last they will,
Right up until
The last float's gone by
And the last cup is dry.

That's what makes the Mardi Gras
The craziest thing you ever saw.
A party full of greed -
You need
The beads.
The alcohol is overflowing,
And wait 'til you see what they're showing -
More skin than you'd believe,
Both he
And she.
For awhile they all love each other,
Everyone is someone's brother.
From Mr. Mayor
To the guy passed out on Bourbon Street.

There's Jesus freaks
And drunken creeps
And topless girls
You'd never ever
Stand a chance to meet...

Outside of Mardi Gras -
The craziest thing you ever saw.
A party full of greed -
You need
The beads.
The alcohol is overflowing,
And wait 'til you see what they're showing -
More skin than you'd believe,
Both he
And she.
For awhile they all love each other,
Everyone is someone's brother.
From Mr. Mayor
To the guy passed out on Bourbon Street.
