Red Bayou (Call the Law)
The Prince song I used here is "Call the Law".

These are the lyrics I used for my repeated poetic refrain:

"Back to the scene,
the basement's packed
Buddy at the front door
breakin' backs
"


Red Bayou

Iridescent walking lies
monochrome suspicious eyes
New Orleans publicity
Mayor corrupt bright fight city

"Back to the scene,
the basement's packed
Buddy at the front door
breakin' backs
"

Music winds down time
Red Bayou, so lost the rhyme
Storm descends on Ponchetrain
Wind ferocious, so's the rain

"Back to the scene,
the basement's packed
Buddy at the front door
breakin' backs
"

Levees failed and that's a fact,
Can't hide from waters sweeping back
Let us down in our beliefs
Just "fly by" from commander-in-chief

"Back to the scene,
the basement's packed
Buddy at the front door
breakin' backs
"
