lyrics

It’s carnival time and I should feel divine
but I don’t have the strength to rise and shine
I hear the festive music and the glee
I wish there was a place down there for me

Just last year I danced all night and drank my fill
now here I am reaching for my sleeping pills
another waking moment I can’t stand
so wake me when it’s over if you can

Mardi Gras, Mardi Gras why did you come this year?
all I’ve got left are some memories and cheap souvenirs
we danced and he kissed me under the Mardi Gras moon
he sang words of love but now he’s changed his tune

I hear the distant music of the bands
I’m losing all the feeling in my hands
pretty soon I’ll see him in my dreams
at our last Mardi Gras in New Orleans

This year the parade will pass me by
but in my dreams there’ll be no need to cry
no one will be lonely, sad or blue
and every lover’s wish will come true

Mardi Gras, Mardi Gras why did you come this year?
all I’ve got left are some memories and cheap souvenirs
we danced and he kissed me under the Mardi Gras moon
he sang words of love but now he’s changed his tune
