Lyrics

The morning sky over yonder looks like cinnamon toast
From the bayou looking south to the funky gulf coast
The balmy breeze is like a dose of the Holy Ghost
And the groove’s so sweet and real
that we feel like we’re in heaven almost,
Baby me and you….
Shake-a shake-a shimmy shimmy cha-cha-cha, a-woo wooo

We’ headin’ down the Mississippi, yeah, my baby and me Shacking in a double shotgun in the Big E-Z
and whatever makes our monkey dance, we’ gonna set it free ‘cause the life we love to live makes as happy like a couple’o gypsies
A couple‘o black eyed peas…..
come on Shake-a shake-a shimmy shimmy
Chicky wah wah, a wee hee

Bridge: It’s only a dream about NOLA,
It’s only a dream about NOLA
Watermelon slice, baby don’t think twice, a woo woo
It’s only a dream about NOLA,
Sounds so nice, baby don’t think twice, a woo woo

Well, we ain’t down with messin’ around with none of that voodoo scene,
And it gets hotter than the devil’s dick in New Orleans
But the second line’s a pumpin’ just like rice and red beans
and it seems to be the place where we can go to make our dreams come true
Baby me and you…
come on Shake-a shake-a shimmy shimmy cha-cha-cha, a-woo wooo

Probably everything you’ve heard about NOLA is true
the jambalaya, Gumbo, and the po-boys too
All the cats on down Frenchman Street be jammin’ the groove Did I forget to mention, baby, we gots nuffin’ to lose
but the blues?
Baby me and you…..
Shake-a shake-a shimmy shimmy cha-cha-cha, a-woo wooo

Shake-a shake-a shimmy shimmy cha-cha-cha,
Shake-a shake-a shimmy shimmy chicky wah-wah
Shake-a shake-a shimmy shimmy cha-cha-cha,

FYI:  There are several other musicians named John Cain. Internet searches can't distinguish between us. Therefore I started using my alternate name J. Riley Cain. It seems fitting since I moved to New Orleans. It sounds kind of "southern." Much of my catalogue of material is still found under the name John Cain.
