lyrics

Hey hey Colleen
How long has it been?
I can't wait to get back to the Crescent City
Hey Colleen
Get your tambourine
Join the band and clap your hands
And hear the words I sing

I'm headed to New Orleans
For more than just one reason
Watcha wanna, watcha gonna eat?
I got the water boilin’
And the shrimp are in season
We’ll wash 'em down, won't slow down
And get behind the beat

Hey hey Colleen
They miss you on the scene
Cause they know you are an Uptown ruler
You will find us on Oak Street
Where my favorite folks meet
Everyone is having fun
You'll make it so complete

I'm headed to New Orleans
For more than just one reason
Roll the good times out into the street
Day or night it feels alright
And the music is so pleasin'
We’ll dance around in our hometown
And get behind the beat

Hey hey Colleen
You're a fleur de lis
So are Isabelle, Olivia, and Lilly
There go the king and queen
In purple gold and green
Those colors run right through our blood
And brighten all our dreams

I'm headed to New Orleans
For more than just one reason
There's all kinds and every kind of heat
The Farenheit it feels alright
And the pepper in the seasonin'
But as a rule we keep it cool
And get behind the beat

Oh let's walk around in our hometown and get behind the beat

Everyone is having fun...let's get behind the beat!
