Happy Daze

The Sky is blue and the storm is gone
I knew it wouldn't take too long
Got ourselves a new President
He's gonna get me a job so I can pay the rent.

Happy Days are here again
Down in New Orleans
Happy Days are here again
Happy Days are here again
Down on Bourbon Street
Happy Days are here again

Get a drink at the Red Fish Grill
Eat dirty rice till I get my fill
Marti Gras man it gets so hot
I'll throw you some beads
You show me what you got


Put a dollar in my coffee can
And I'll play my banjo till the Saints go marching in
Like o'l Bo Jangles gonna dance all night long
So get another drink and everybody sing along
