UP AND DOWN CANAL

UP AND DOWN CANAL

WORDS AND MUSIC BY HENRY GROSS ©1989 HALFMINE MUSIC B.M.I.

 

EARLY IN THE MORNING, LATE INTO THE NIGHT
WE GO OUT DANCING, HOLD EACH OTHER TIGHT
ROCKIN’ AND A ROLLING UP AND DOWN CANAL

COFFEE AND A BEIGNET WHEN FEET START MOVING SLOW
REST UP FOR A MINUTE, THEN IT’S TIME TO GO
ROCKIN’ AND A ROLLING UP AND DOWN CANAL

DRINK BROWN WHISKEY ON BOURBON STREET
MY HEAD STARTS SPINNING, I CAN FEEL THE BEAT
AIR’S SO HEAVY, CUT IT WITH A KNIFE
BEST DAMN TIME EVER IN MY LIFE

SO IF YOU SEE ME PASS OUT DON’T CARRY ME BACK HOME
‘CAUSE WHEN I’M FINISHED DREAMING I WANT TO CARRY ON
ROCKIN’ AND A ROLLING UP AND DOWN CANAL

DRINK BROWN WHISKEY ON BOURBON STREET
MY HEAD STARTS SPINNING, I CAN FEEL THE BEAT
AIR’S SO HEAVY, CUT IT WITH A KNIFE
BEST DAMN TIME EVER IN MY LIFE

SO ORDER UP A DOUBLE, SHOOT IT DOWN AND THEN
HAVE YOURSELF A PARTY WITH SOME BRAND NEW FRIENDS
ROCKIN’ AND A ROLLING UP AND DOWN CANAL
