Chocolate City

Chocolate City
additional lyrics by the Queen of the Universe
with thanks to Hizzonah, C. Ray Nagin, Mayor of New Orleans for the inspiration

Sung to the tune of Paradise City by Guns 'N' Roses

(with apologies)
(I'm sleep deprived)


CHORUS:
Take me down to the chocolate city
Where the folks'll be brown
And the streets'll be gritty
Take me home (Oh, won't you please take me home)

Just a native livin' far from my street
Missin' the feelin' of the city's heart beat
Food stamps now gone and we want somethin' to eat
We've got a lot of mouths to feed
And there's much more that we need

Come back. Rebuild. Or so they say.
We gotta keep askin' for the Fema money
We gotta keep fightin' the beauracracy.
Spreadin' 'round' the wealth is only fair
Everybody' gettin' their share

CHORUS x2

Waitin' for the trailer that Fema will bring
We'll be sittin' here pro'bly 'til Spring
The Mayor says it's okay to come back and wait
'Specially if you're the color of Cafe au lait
Tell me that you're not gonna leave

CHORUS x2

So far away x4

City of New Orleans' been torn apart
Now she's a laughing stock with a broken heart
She said turn me around and take me back to the start
Are we all losing our minds? Color blind?
She's seen it all a mllion times

CHORUS x4

I want to go
I want to know
Oh, won't you please take me home

I want to see
Oh, look at me
Oh, won't you please take me home

Take me down to the chocolate city
Where most folks are brown
And the streets still gritty
Take me home (Oh, won't you please take me home)

Take me down to the chocolate city
Where most folks are brown
And the streets still gritty
Oh, won't you please take me home

Take me down
Oh yeah
Beat me down
Oh, won't you please take me home

I want to see
Oh, look at me
Oh, won't you please take me home

I want to see
Boy, I'm gonna be mean
Oh, oh take me home

Take me down to the chocolate city
Where most folks are brown
And the streets still gritty
Oh, won't you please take me home

I want to go
I want to know
Oh, won't you please take me hooooooome
Baby
