Lyrics

Twelfth Night?A?Pick it

T?was the twelfth night after Christmas
When the wise men came to town
Just to worship baby Jesus
And to lay their presents down
The Catholics they named that day
The Feast of Epiphany
And there ain?t no place more catholic
Than way down yonder in New Orleans

It?s the twelfth night after Christmas
Way down in New Orleans
They?re getting ready for the Mardi Gras
And you know what that means
They?re gonna spotlight the ridiculous
They?re gonna set their spirits free
Gonna show the world the meaning
Of the word epiphany

You got the leader of the people
Sayin baby you can?t blame me
We never saw it coming
It was a hurricane four days at sea
At fifteen miles an hour?don?t tell me it snuck up on you
There?s nothing more ridiculous than hearing you say there was nothing you could do
It?s the twelfth night after Christmas
Way down in New Orleans
They?re getting ready for the Mardi Gras
And you know what that means
They?re gonna spotlight the ridiculous
They?re gonna set their spirits free
Nothin more ridiculous than what them down there done seen

You got the police on the Gretna Bridge turning everybody back
Leastways everybody standing next to anybody black
You got Mr. Brown sayin come on down
Gonna make you feel at home
Gonna give you all we got to give
Right down to the Superdome
Abandonment sandwiches
Bottled neglect
Hot and cold running indifference
And the emperor just stopped by to drop off some of his old clothes
Or maybe they?re his new clothes
It?s so hard to tell?.




It?s the twelfth night after Christmas
Way down in New Orleans
They?re getting ready for the Mardi Gras
And you know what that means
They?re gonna spotlight the ridiculous
They?re gonna set their spirits free
Nobody got more spirit than they got
Down in New Orleans

Now the black Mama raised her babies right
Black Papa he done too
And the children of these parents
Well they knew what they had to do
They gathered food and water and they
Gave it all away
And they did not need pissant epiphany
To make them act that way

So why don?t you go on down to New Orleans
Check out the Mardi Gras
Shuffle on over to the Superdome
So you can see what they saw
Then slide on over to the Lower Ninth Ward
Watch those levees bend and sway
Just remember there?s a levee back in your hometown
It?s looking just the same old way

It?s the twelfth night after Christmas
Way down in New Orleans
They?re getting ready for the Mardi Gras
And you know what that means
They?re gonna spotlight the ridiculous
They?re gonna set their spirits free
Gonna show the world the meaning
Of the word epiphany
