lyrics

Big Bungalou’s Jumping Jambalaya in New Orleans

Olive Pickle (OP): There are seven seas, seven sins, and seven, days--in a week,
Adam (A): I grew up in the streets and have seen them all before.
OP: But it doesn’t matter now, now we’re here together (Adam: Forever)
A: And, my little boy’s little body is literally just a smaller version of my own body.

Chorus:
Big Bungalou’s Jumpin' Jambalaya in New Orleans.
Big Bungalou’s Jumpin' Jambalaya in New Orleans.

OP: I’m a Napalm Girl with red lipstick and my heart set afire.
A: (Fa-fa-fa-fa fire!) I’m an elegant man, cigar in hand, and matches in my pocket.

OP: (His pocket, his pocket, his pocket.) The streamers are falling, and Bourbon Street is calling to the people in the street.
A: Life is hectic, your body—electric, so let’s all get down to the electric beat.

OP: The baby inside me’s heartbeat is beating, to the music in the street.
A: There are fourteen of my sisters, all shaking streamers, and holding beads.

Both: From the youngest to the oldest, they all have started dating.---

OP: And, now they want to find themselves a man.
A: I’m a man, all the pretty voices—sing to me.

Both: La la-la-la la-la la, la la

A: But, the singing, ohhh, the singing, it lifts them up into the skyways – along the vast expanse of highways.

Chorus:
Big Bungalou’s Jumpin' Jambalaya in New Orleans.
Big Bungalou’s Jumpin' Jambalaya in New Orleans.

Both:
We’ll find a boat at midnight in the middle of the road,
The drunks and musicians will pick it up in hand.
They’ll carry us down the street at midnight,
And our midnight parade will grow as people join in.
We’ll make a crowd that looks like it could start a riot,
We’ll make a crowd that creates its space.
No matter how many narrow streets,
There always will be room for us in this place.

Chorus:
Big Bungalou’s Jumpin' Jambalaya in New Orleans.
Big Bungalou’s Jumpin' Jambalaya in New Orleans.
Big Bungalou’s Jumpin' Jambalaya in New Orleans.
Big Bungalou’s Jumpin' Jambalaya in New Orleans.
