lyrics

I’m not drunk I’m just tired
Been a marathon week of working and wired
Cramming everything trying to fill up my brain to the brink
But I gave it my all yah I left it on the table
And when I stood up I felt rather unstable
But that’s what I get for trying so hard to think

On Mardi Gras morning
When I’m stuck in school
How could life be so cruel
As a midterm scheduled at 9am on
Mardi Gras morning
I’m the biggest fool
I forgot the golden rule
When you’re out of state
No one knows the date

I’m not drunk but I hope I soon will be
Gotta catch up to my friends in the Marigny
Even if it’s virtually by the way of Facebook
So I put on my feathers and some glitter for sparkle
Not a costume per say, but in Georgia it’s a marvel
So honey be a peach and try a friendlier look

Cuz it’s Mardi Gras morning
And I’m stuck in school
How could life be so cruel
As a midterm scheduled at 9am on
Mardi Gras morning
I’m the biggest fool
I forgot the golden rule
When you’re out of state
No one knows the date

No one knows the date
It’s Mardi Gras morning
And no one knows the date
It’s Mardi Gras morning

I’m not drunk, well maybe just a little
I got OZ on but it’s harder to revel
As a party of one when you’re 500 miles away
So I guess that it’s time to chalk it up to higher learning
Drink to my friends and hope that they’re burning
A candle for two at both ends as they dance and play

On Mardi Gras morning
When I’m stuck in school
How could life be so cruel
As a midterm scheduled at 9am on
Mardi Gras morning
I’m the biggest fool
I forgot the golden rule
When you’re out of state
No one knows the date
And it’s just another cold Tuesday
And you wonder what they’re going to say
About your green and gold lame´
But you really don’t care anyway
Cuz it’s Mardi Gras morning
