Acadiana Time

Story Behind The Song

I was working for a real jerk at the time in Houston, TX and was SOO longing for a quick weekend trip back home to my little home town to just hang out with some friends fishing, maybe catch a festival, etc. A lot of the neat references are a result of making myself try to over complicate it a bit using MasterWriter software.

Song Description

I wrote this one being a bit homesick and about to get fired from my Corporate job for telling off my VP. It talks about the longing to barely pack and haul butt quick back home to get my mind and soul back right with my origins.

Lyrics

I'm comin off of a real bad work week - working for a total control freak

I've spent 5 days tongue in cheek - I'm beyond the help of Campho-Phenique

I think the only thing that might help is some time spent not by myself
with some friends and a big top shelf, a little liquid therapy, do it yourself

So I email everyone - How about a Cajun Poker run?
Let's get outside and have some fun - Let the work stress come undone

(Chorus):
I'm craving some Acadiana Time. Time to live this City out way behind

Kick back and breathe some fresh farmland air

Watch some Cajun cuties shake their derrières

Refresh our Souls and minds livin' on Acadiana Time

(Verse)

I get a reply right away - We're cooking up a pot of étouffée

come on over, don't delay, Tomorrow we'll be fishing out on Vermillion Bay

So don't forget your fishing gear, the reds are running this time of year

Hurry it up and have no fear, we garontee we wont run out of beer

Let us know when you're on your way, we got an extra bed where you can stay

Come on down to South LA it'll be just like the good ole days

(Chorus)

Come and get you some ..
Acadiana Time. Do like Merle Leave that big City way behind
Kick back and breathe some fresh farmland air
Watch some Cajun cuties shake their derriès
Refresh our Souls and minds livin' on Acadiana Time
