Come on, take me to the Mardi Gras
where the people sing and play.
Where the dancing is elite
and there`s music in the street
both night and day.
Hurry, take me to the Mardi Gras
in the city of my dreams.
You can legalize your laws,
you can wear your summer clothes
in the New Orleans.
And I will lay my burden down,
rest my head upon that shore.
And when I wear that starry crown
I won`t be wanting anymore...
Take your burdens to the Mardi Gras,
let the music wash your soul.
You can mingle in the street,
you can jingle to the beat
of the jelly roll.
Tumba tumba tumba Mardi Gras,
tumba tumba tumba day...
