Waktu rilis: 01-08-1986

A long time ago, yeah

Before you was born dude

 

When I was still single

 

And life was great

 

I held this job as a traveling salesman

 

That kept me moving from state to state

 

Well, I'm standing on the corner of Lafayette

 

State of Louisiana

 

Wondering where a city boy could go

 

To get a little conversation

 

Drink a little red wine

Catch a little bit of those Cajun girls

Dancing to Zydeco

 

Along come a young girl

 

She's pretty as a prayerbook

Sweet as an apple on Christmas day

I said good gracious can this be my luck

 

If that's my prayerbook

Lord let us pray

 

Well, I'm standing on the corner of Lafayette

State of Louisiana

 

Wondering where a city boy could go

To get her in a conversation

 

Drink a little red wine

 

Dance to the music of Clifton Chenier

The King of the Bayou

 

Well, that was your mother

And that was your father

Before you was born dude

When life was great

 

You are the burden of my generation

I sure do love you

But let's get that straight

 

Well, I'm standing on the corner of Lafayette

Across the street from The Public

Heading down to the Lone Star Cafe

 

Maybe get a little conversation

 

Drink a little red wine

Standing in the shadow of Clifton Chenier

Dancing the night away
