Lyrics

THE BALLAD OF MISS LOUISE


It was a long, hot summer day
And the sun was shining down extra hard
I was walking home from work
When I spied Miss Louise out in her yard

She offered me a drink of water
Somehow that water turned to wine
There was Louise and me and me and Louise
And I just kind of lost my mind
AND NOW I
Can?t go home ? Any more ? No

I tried to bow out gracefully
But Louise was standing guard on the door
She said, ?Why don?t you just relax?
There?s ever so much left to explore.?

Well, I don?t like how this is going at all
But if I?m to survive
I guess I?m gonna have to do whatever it takes
To get out of here alive
BUT EVEN IF I DO ? I still
Can?t go home ? Any more ? No

Well, I wound up down on Bourbon Street
Appearing lost and weak in the knees
There were people milling all about
And everywhere I looked I saw Louise

There?s a lesson to be learned here
Of that you can be sure
The more turns you make while walking home
The more you must endure
AND YOU SURE
Can?t go home ? Any more ? No
