7 ways to tell it's FESTIVAL time!

#1
If you're standing in a crowd.
It's festival time.

#2

If you see any royalty in Louisiana!
It's gotta be festival time.

#3
If you see a wagon of girls wearing crowns go by
(no you're not in Disney Land).
It's just festival time.

#4
If you see a firetruck that ain't in a hurry.
It must be festival time.

#5
If you see young girls with loads of
beads wrapped around their necks.
And not so young women fighting 'bout a little prize.
You got it, it's festival time.

#6
If you find yourself yelling "Throw me something Mister!"
That's right, must be festival time.

If you see masses of signs for fried . . . anything.
Festival time!
