It's not "Do You Know What it Means to Miss New Orleans", but it works...

flick, in This post, puts a very serious situation into song.



I've had one song in particular going through my head. I appologise profusely, because I'm sure that lots of people will be offended by the nature of this post and other people by the content of it.


I heard about this place full of old bohos
Where you drink chartreuse, which it tastes nothing like cola
C-o-l-a cola
I heard about it thanks to Poppy Z Brite
Forgot it for a while and then Katrina hit NOLA
N-O-L-A NOLA no-no-no-no NOLA

Well I’m not the world’s most whimsical gal
But I have to wonder if they had a design
Oh, in NOLA no-no-no-no NOLA
Well I’m not dumb but I can’t understand
Why they didn't evacuate to the last man
Down in NOLA no-no-no-no NOLA no-no-no-no NOLA

But now there's shooting all day and night
They're running things on candlelight
Because Katrina destroyed the levee
And New Orleans is underneath the sea
Well it's not the most republican state
But you'd think that Bush would at least *try* to save some of NOLA
no-no-no-no NOLA no-no-no-no NOLA
NOLA no-no-no-no NOLA no-no-no-no NOLA

Could they get away?
Or did they ignore:
Are they that hardcore?
It was not just a breeze
When Katrina came without mercy

Well if they want then I guess they can stay
But I somehow doubt that it was that way down in NOLA
no-no-no-no NOLA
Shots will be fired but who knows why
It’s a mixed up muddled up flooded world down in NOLA
no-no-no-no NOLA

Well there's one thing that you can't ignore:
That it's never ever going to be like before
Will NOLA survive and will NOLA stand
And can they develop a re-building plan?

They couldn't manage to put folk in vans
But we know that now so we can help them with plans
To re-build NOLA
no-no-no-no NOLA no-no-no-no NOLA
NOLA no-no-no-no NOLA no-no-no-no NOLA
