Your cassette and your soul
And your hidden pride’s all you hold
We were walking hand in hand
Toward a sky of gold
You were young
It was new
And the coin it had your picture too
As the gold it turned to diamonds
In the city of Baton Rouge

Baton Rouge
Under the southern moon

I get the feeling that we’ve stayed too long
And you slowly made your way along one side sur le boulevard
Can you hear the sound of a distant song?
And the Creole people proudly say that they still remember you

Baton Rouge
Under the southern moon

It’s so hard in this land of the petticoat insurrection
And the naughty Marietta refused to play the game

Baton Rouge
Under the southern moon

And this Louisiana is our home
Filles à la Cassette came from France to live in a southern land
What a day I think we’re nearly done
There’s no love in this unsettled land so far from their distant home

Baton Rouge
Under the southern moon
Raking the streets of Bayou
