lyrics

Crash on the levee mama water's gonna overflow
Swamp's gonna rise ain't no boat's a gonna row
Now you can train on down to Williams Point
You can bust your feet and you can rock this joint
But oh mama ain't you gonna miss your best friend now
You're gonna have to find yourself another best friend somehow

Now don't you try and move me you're just gonna lose
There's a crash on the levee and mama you've been refused
Well it's sugar for sugar and it's salt for salt
If you go down in the flood it's gonna be your falt
But oh mama...

Well that high tide's risin' mama don't you let me down
Pack up your suitcase mama don't you make a sound
Now it's king for king it's queen for queen
It's a gonna be the meanest flood that anybody's seen
But oh mama...
You're gonna have to find yourself another best friend somehow
