All Over That Girl

Drew James © 2005

 

I touched down in this Mardi Gras town about half past eight

And waited in line for the taxicab ride down to Vieux Carre

The moon was high in the Louisiana night when I hit the street

It was a carnival parade, a drunken masquerade and it felt so sweet

 

I saw her leaning there against a lamppost

An angel in red boots and black hose

She threw some plastic beads in my direction

I caught ‘em in my teeth just to get her attention

 

It was all over that girl, it was all over that girl

I pictured in my mind what it would be like to be with her

It was all over that girl, it was all over that girl

Outside of her there was nothing else I wanted in this whole wide world

 

Together we ran, hand in hand down to Jackson Square

She held me tight on a buggy ride through the humid night air

After a taste at a quiet little place we were flying high

She whispered “Trick or Treat” down on Rampart Street with the devil in her eye

 

Then she led me through the gates of an old graveyard

To a tomb covered with x’s and strange marks

I read the name out loud “Marie Laveau”

She kissed me and said, “That’s me, you know!”

 

(Chorus)

 

I woke up in the morning all alone

Leaning up against a broken headstone

Now I spend my time wanderin’ ‘round the Quarter

Vainly searching for her

 

I can’t get over that girl, I can’t get over that girl

I keep picturin’ in my mind what it would be like to be with her

I can’t get over that girl, I can’t get over that girl

Outside of her there’s nothing else I want in this whole wide world

 

It was all over that girl, now I can’t get over that girl
