BOOGALOO DOWN BOURBON STREET

HEADIN’ OUT OF MEMPHIS,
WITH THE SETTING SUN.
DRIVIN’ THROUGH THE DELTA,
ON HIGHWAY 61.
THIS FLATHEAD FORD IS KNOCKIN’,
THESE OLD TIRES SING A TUNE,
AND THE COTTONFIELDS GLOW LIKES GHOSTS
IN THE LIGHT OF THE MOON.
AND WE’RE ROLLIN’, WE’RE ROLLIN’…
 
WE’RE GONNA BOOGALOO DOWN BOURBON STREET,
WITH THE WILD TCHOUPITOULAS AND DR. JOHN.
BOOGALOO DOWN BOURBON STREET,
WE’RE GONNA PARTY ALL NIGHT LONG.
COME ON! COME ON!
 
ON THE BANKS OF THE BIG MUDDY,
ON A STEAMY SUMMER NIGHT.
BARGES PLY THE RIVER,
AND SWEEP THE SHORES
WITH THEIR SPOTLIGHTS.
ME AND GEORGE DICKEL,
JUST WATCHIN’ THAT RIVER FLOW,
ON DOWN TO NEW ORLEANS,
AND THE GULF OF MEXICO.
AND IT’S ROLLIN’, IT’S ROLLIN’…
 
WE’RE GONNA BOOGALOO DOWN BOURBON STREET,
WITH LOUIS ARMSTRONG AND SIDNEY BECHET.
BOOGALOO DOWN BOURBON STREET,
WE’RE GONNA PARTY ‘TIL THE BREAK OF DAY.
 
WE’RE GONNA BOOGALOO DOWN BOURBON STREET
WITH ALLEN TOUSSAINT AND FATS DOMINO.
BOOGALOO DOWN BOURBON STREET,
WE’RE GONNA PARTY,
C’MON, LET’S GO! LET’S GO!
