I would never normally go bowling
On a Friday morning in New Orleans
But I like to come here to remember
The kind of places you took me

Like the time we stole a Datsun
And drove all night to the Everglades
Until we crashed it in a big electric storm
And stood there listening to the bayou rain

The county Sheriff had a hair-lip
Louisiana's pride and joy
But he said politely as he cuffed me
"I never busted an English boy"

"But I will accept a contribution
To the Opelousas' Charity Ball
But you better drive this dirty Datsun
Into the Gulf of Mexico"

Under a Cajun moon I lay me open
There is a spirit here that won't be broken
Some words are sad to sing, some leave me tongue-tied
(But the hardest thing to tell you )
But the hardest words I know are I love you goodbye
I love you goodbye

Typhoon Pierre delayed my plane till morning
(Jusqu'au matin)
Let the bontemps rouler from your accordion
(L'accordien)
Under a Cajun moon I lay me open
(Y a un esprit partout)

There is a spirit here that won't be broken
(Simple words are sad to sing)
Some words are sad to sing
(They leave me tongue-tied)
Some leave you tongue-tied
(But the hardest thing to tell you my friend)

But the hardest words I know
(Is I love you goodbye)
Are I love you goodbye
(Je t'aime, au revoir)
I love you goodbye
(Je t'aime, toujours)
I love you, goodbye
I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you goodbye
