Ritmo Calypso of New Orleans: Music

Carnival in New Orleans

(Ritmo Calypso)
July 16, 2009
Frederick Woodworth

The song covers festivities and activities of a typical Mardi Gras day in New Orleans.

            

      Carnival in New Orleans

Time to go, everybody let’s go

go to the carnival in New Orleans

In the Vieux Carre, it’s a little risqué

Come we go down and see Zulu today

        Chorus

        Come we go down, Come we go down

Down to the carnival in New Orleans

        Come we go down, Come we go down

Down to the carnival in New Orleans.

Red beans and rice in me belly so nice

And the rumba down by the riverside

Down to Decatur and Jackson Square

Go to Frenchmen, we do samba there
