I'm hopin' for the rain
To trickle down again
All over my skin
In the bayou wind

American Can
The Spanish moss in hand
And I'm on Esplanade
In a little park on Mystery Street in the shade

Seashells and Mardi Gras beads
In the sidewalk with the seeds
That fall down from the trees
And roll in the cracks while I'm on my knees

Don't need no umbrella
No guitar neither
I'm just fine
Enjoying the time

Ooh nah nah, hey mamma, mmm
Ooh nah nah, hey mamma, ooh

'Cuz this is home to me
Here in the Crescent City
Even in poverty and all the rest
You'll find humanity at it's best

In comes the second line
From Claiborne and Orleans
All the way down to Rampart Street
Toward the river with all your dreams

There's the Faubourg Marigny
Frenchman Street a destiny
Everybody's somebody and I'm home

Ooh nah nah, hey mamma, mmm
Ooh nah nah, hey mamma, ooh
