  • The big bass drum led the big parade
    All on a Mardi Gras Day
    The trombone was playing the tailgate song
    All on a Mardi Gras Day
    The bugler came down playing a bugle call
    All on a Mardi Gras Day
    And all that you could hear the people say
    Was "Oh Bah Lea"

    Everybody now comes [........] [in line?]
    All on a Mardi Gras Day
    [.........] are doing the second line
    All on a Mardi Gras Day
    [..............................]
    All on a Mardi Gras Day
    And all we're gonna say all night and day
    Is "Oh Bah Lea"

    The world danced down to St. Andrews Street
    All on a Mardi Gras Day
    From Chapitulla south to Magnolia Street
    All on a Mardi Gras Day
    I (espied/spied) the Injuns and [.............]
    All on a Mardi Gras Day
    And all that you could hear was the people saying
    "Oh Bah Lea"
    Black Eagles band plays [...] Fee-Nah-Nay
    All on a Mardi Gras Day
    And all that you could hear was the people saying
    "Oh Bah Lea"
