New Orleans

Let It Rain

Ya can’t stop da rain...
When it wantsta come down...
Especially in New Orleans...
Where people do drown...

Ya can dress up all pretty...
To getcha friendly going on...
But when it rains in New Orleans...
It might rain ‘til dawn...

So ya make ya way inside...
To da nearest bar...
Cuz when da streets flood...
Ya don’t wanna be found in ya car...

Once ya inside da bar...
Ya find a nice warm chair...
Ya getcha yaself a drink...
And ya let down ya hair...

Ya take off ya wet shoes...
And ya put up ya feet...
Cuz before ya know it...
A nice dude ya might meet...

As da drinks get to flowin’...
Ya forget about da rain...
The conversation gets good...
Nobody’s feeling’ no pain...

So ya can dress up all pretty...
To getcha friendly going on...
Cuz when it rains in New Orleans...
It might get friendly til dawn...
