Crescent City Lyrics

Everybody's had a few, now they're talking about who knows who?
I'm going back to the Crescent City, where everything's still the same
This town has said what it has to say, now I'm after that back highway
And the longest bridge I've ever crossed over Pontchartrain

?Tous les temps sans temps?, that's what we say
We used to dance the night away
Me and my sister, me and my brother
We used to walk down by the river

Mama lives in Mandeville, I can hardly wait until
I can hear my zydeco and laissez les bon temps roulet
I take rides in open cars, my brother knows where the best bars are
Let's see how these blues'll do in the town where the good times stay

?Tous les temps sans temps?, that's what we say
We used to dance the night away
Me and my sister, me and my brother
We used to walk down by the river

?Tous les temps sans temps?, that's what we say
We used to dance the night away
Me and my sister, me and my brother
We used to walk down by the river
