I'll tell it like it happened it was Darius an Nolan and me,
Just a few po' boys tryin to get up out of Missouri
Took 55 to Lousiana stopped by the highway to eat,
They both had craw fish strictly chicken for me
Back out under thunderheads the radio the radio was southern soul
Thet interrupted Clarence Carter with a strange ass local show
They were saying

Come down to Lake Pontchartrain rest your soul and feed your brain
That's where you will get to see everything the water can be

The rain was comin down, the wind was howling outside Slidel
It was the kind of night that makes you think the whole world is goin to hell
We got off on an exit cuz we couldn't read the map so great
Near the Choctaw motel we parked to liberate
When out of the bayou came a man like the lake had a tongue
He was right up on the glass all yellow eyed black teeth bangin on the windshield screaming like a demon at the top of his lungs

Come down to Lake Pontchartrain rest your soul and feed your brain
Free for you and all your friends!
Crawfish till the bitter end come down to lake potchatrain wade to where the shallows break that's were you will get to see everything the water can be

I was drivin out of there as fast as a Camry could
But the interstate was flooded and I had to take the road through the woods
Bad move in retrospect the road disappeared in the rain
And I stood on the brakes when I saw the sign: lake pontcahrtrain
Darius was yelling that he saw somebody out in the swells he jumped out runnin and Nolan was goin as well
Come back! Why the hell would they leave the car?
And that's when I heard it make no mistake the voices were calling them under the lake

Come down to lake pontchartrain (x4)

The crawfish were screaming the waves dance in time
My friends went in deeper, the water it climbed
I watched in terror the lake opened wide and horribly roaring it pulled them inside.
That's how it happened, why would I lie, there were no bodies I've got none to hide, I'm just a boy who lost his friends in the rain, any more questions just go and ask lake Pontchartrain.
