Story Behind the Song

Written after going to New Orleans for Mardi Gras.

Lyrics

Late on a Friday down in New Orleans
Walkin? down Bourbon Street your neck all wrapped in beads
The girls are all so pretty and looking for a trade
They?re ready to go and willing to show
So put down that Hurricane

CHORUS:
She said, ?Sex for your beads! - Beads for my body!?
?Sex for your beads! - Beads for my body!?
?Sex for your beads! - Beads for my body!?
Give ?em up

Stop off for a bite, yeah
Have yourself a Po?Boy
Then jump back in the action lookin' for a joy toy
You duck in an alley with a girl named Sally whose body is well designed
One good look was all it took and she was all mine - all night

CHORUS

The girls up on the balcony are doin? things that?s pretty rare
The crowd below delights every time they take off their underwear
A word of caution to all of you who might venture down someday
That?s what?ll happen when you drink too many of those damn good Hurricanes!
