Track Name: I Wanna Be Like Batman
I wanna see the world in black and white,
And if that cat creeps around, she’ll be in my sights.
Got you jokers in the palm of my hand,
And you won’t sleep.
I wanna be like Batman.

Wanna be unleashed; get the fuzz off my tail.
And tell that Supertool this dog ain’t for sale.
When they say sit I stand.
Tell the police
I wanna be like Batman.

Now it’s all so that these Bat-bills get paid
For the Bat-car, the Bat-schools, and a bigger Batcave.
So I drink and I think on the old Bat-days when I can
And fall asleep, and in those dreams
I wanna be like Batman.
Track Name: Pas Avec Toi
Je veux bois la bierre,
Mais pas avec toi.
Pas avec toi, pas avec toi.

Je veux manger mon diner,
Mais pas avec toi.
Pas avec toi, pas avec toi.

We wanna drink beer,
But not with you.
Not with you, not with you.
Track Name: Evangeline
These are days with no tomorrow,
Evangeline.
Mother Mary, take our sorrows
And give us time.


Le grand dérangement larmes nous,
Evangeline.
Je vais encore chercher pour vous
Il prend le travail.

Et je vais vous voir de nouveau dans
Notre maison vraie.
Nous allons être ensemble
A jamais.

Je vais attendre sous la branche,
Evangeline,
Sur le bayou, près de la grange.
Il prend le travail.

Et je vais vous voir de nouveau dans
Notre maison vraie.
Nous allons être ensemble
A jamais.

And I waited out there for you
On the Bayou Teche.
Our roads will wind forever,
So I hold my breath.

And I'll see you out there again in
Our home someday.
Nous allons être ensemble
A jamais.
Track Name: Lafayette
Lafayette, we met too long ago,
When the days were hotter than a stove,
But there ain’t no girls like the girls south of Grand Coteau
I could crawl across the coals
Back to my home again.

And Alesi’s is still on my mind.
And Judice Inn isn’t too hard to find.
I could drive down I-10 only for the Olde Tyme
And a daiquiri to go
Back to my home again.

So now I ease dans la Nouvelle Orleans
Entoure par la Riviere Mississippi.
Mais pour moi le Vermillion est le vrai envie.
Je voudrais etre comme nouveau
Back in my home again.
Track Name: Harahan
And so we’ve traced through every evidence in sight
And lost our sleep over innocence and fitting into white
And never knowing why we go.

It’s always the same animal anyway.
They just need someone to blame
For all the fires and the floods that put them out.

We’ll keep the peace,
You keep the score
And hope it goes well.
It’s hard to tell it.
I need to make it all so clear.

If I don’t make it out I won’t be caught alive
Analyzing every inch in every step in every mile
So that we know when we’re evil.

It’s always the same animal anyway.
They just need some fool to blame
For all the fires and the floods that put them out.

We’ll keep the peace,
You keep the score
And hope it goes well.
It’s hard to tell it.
I need to make it all so clear.
Track Name: Swamp Pop Quiz
All by myself, just like before,
But I’ve no use for my pride anymore,
So take me back. Take me back.
`Cause I don’t want to be free.

When your love is good
It still ain’t the best,
But in the nights since you’ve been gone
I’ve forgotten all of the rest.

So take me back. Take me back.
`Cause I don’t want to be free.

Oh, you were the worst bitch I’ve known,
But I guess I don’t want to die all alone,
So take me back. Take me back.
`Cause I don’t want to be free.
Track Name: Non Con Lei
Vorimo berre dais la birra
Non con lei, non con lei
Tempo di partira
Veremente, veremente.

Non poe restira
Non beve birra
Veremente, veremente.

Ahh, non con lei, hey hey.
Ahh, pas avec toi, wah ah.

Je veau bois la bierre
Pas avec toi, pas avec toi
Je veau manger mon diner
Pas avec toi, pas avec toi

??? Pas avec toi, pas avec toi.
Track Name: Cajun Rebirth
(you go round
and a-round
to get around
our town)

Faites ce que vous voulez...

Je me sens comme funkin' it up, sens comme funkin' it up...
Track Name: With A Little Help From My Swamp Pop
Put away your books and chores.
Just ignore the great outdoors.
Leave your family and friends
Until the games have reached the end.

Don’t even try to relax
In places built with your tax.
They don’t care in the least.
Win, lose, or draw they still feast.

It’s time to leave the show.
If we left they’d never know.
12th seat, 7th row. I got places to go.

In creeps a shadow over his mind.
He’s been there too many times.
Miss a game and it’s a crime.
So believe just like Syme.
Track Name: Edison de Nouveau
Edison, c’est beaucoup plus de travail.
Je ne vais pas decider.
Laisser dormer ou rester endormi
Comme nous sommes.

J’ai besoin de changement.
Mais je ne sais pas pour sur
Si Monty Hall a autre chose pour moi
Derriere l’autre mur.

Edison, j’ai termine.
Il est marron et orange.
Maintenant je suis sur que
Je me trompe.

Dieu ne sait pas
Ce que je vois
Avec ma decision.
