Carnival Time

Lyrics: Al Johnson
Music: Al Johnson

Played by Theryl "Houseman" DeClouet (of Galactic) with Phil Lesh and Friends at their Mardi Gras concert in 2005.

The Green Room is smoking, and the Plaza burning down
Throw my baby out the window, let the joint burn down
All because it's carnival time
Well, it's carnival time
Well it's carnival time
Everybody's having fun

The whole street is jumping from one side to the other
The joints are jamming packed, and I'm about to fall
All because it's carnival time
Well, it's carnival time
Well it's carnival time
Everybody's having fun

You bring a nickel, and I'll put a dime
Honk it together now and we can drink some wine
All because it's carnival time
Well, it's carnival time
Well it's carnival time
Everybody's drinking wine

The whole street is jumping from one side to the other
The joints are jamming packed, and I'm about to fall
All because it's carnival time
Well, it's carnival time
Well it's carnival time
Everybody's having fun
