Just a little extra I heard the young girl say as she swayed to the sounds
Mardi Gras makes! The Trumpets play the Indians Way, and Petes
Discrete as his clarinette meets 'The Peep's'! Yea... that's the beat!
Oh, what a way to see the world! Windows open and the people say,
'Show me some sista...' They shout... as the music drowns the
answers out! Just a little extra please, on Mardi Gras Day, that's the
To find a 'Dabloon'...'you know'..., 'just a li'lle extra'...'on the street'...
...'right aroun Noon'!
