(Uuh!)
Down in New Orleans
Where the blues was born
It takes a cool cat
To blow a horn
On Lasalle and Rampart Street
The combo's there with a mambo beat

The Mardi Gras, mambo, mambo, mambo
Party Gras, pambo, mambo, mambo
Mardi Gras, mambo-ooh
Down in New Orleans

In Gert Town
Where the cats all meet
There's a Mardi Gras mambo
With a beat
Join the Chief with the Zulu gang
And truck on down
Where the mambo's swing

The Mardi Gras, mambo, mambo, mambo
Party Gras, mambo, mambo, mambo
Pardi Gras, mambo-ooh
Down in New Orleans

Down in New Orleans
Where the blues was born
It takes a cool cat
To blow a horn
On Lasalle and Rampart Street
The combo's there with a mambo beat

The Mardi Gras, mambo, mambo, mambo
Party Gras, mambo, mambo, mambo
Party Gras, mambo-ooh
Down in New Orleans

[Chorus:]
Mardi Gras, mambo, mambo, mambo
Party Gras, mambo, mambo, mambo
Pardi Gras, mambo, mambo, mambo
Fades-
Pardi Gras, mambo, mambo, mambo.
