lyrics

My baby left me for the Mardi Gras
He always said he want to party hard
He said I live in the wrong direction
He said it won't change his affection
He even asked me did I want to go
But there's some things a man must do alone
Well I want for him to visit me
But Mardi Gras is a grand party.

So now I'm sitting here I can't go on
I want to hear the accordion
Feel the washboard up and down my spine
Two stepping and enjoy the ride
Now why on earth did I say no?
There is no other place I would rather go
Well I want for him to visit me
But Mardi Gras is a grand party
