My Mardi Gras Mary

When it’s Carnival time
You can keep your vodka cranberry...
Dat’s when I grab for my Mardi Gras Mary...

When da flambeau start dancin’
And da Bonez Men get all scary...
Dat’s when I grab for my Mardi Gras Mary...

Party Gras all night till you wake the cemetery...
Dat’s when I grab for my Mardi Gras Mary...

When da Zulu floats break down
And all da crowds start growin’ wary...
Dat’s when I grab for my Mardi Gras Mary...

When the rain clouds start gettin’ dark
And the weather starts lookin’ hairy
Dat’s when I grab for my Mardi Gras Mary...

Party Gras all night till you wake the cemetery...
Dat’s when I grab for my Mardi Gras Mary...

When I meet a pretty lady in da Quarters
But she says her name is Gary...
Dat’s when I grab for my Mardi Gras Mary...

When she sees me wit my side girl
And I become da cat who swallowed da canary...
Dat’s when I grab for my Mardi Gras Mary...

Party Gras all night till you wake the cemetery...
Dat’s when I grab for my Mardi Gras Mary...
