Grant me the courage to change the things I can change,
the serenity to accept the things I can’t change,
and the wisdom to know the difference.

I was born on the edge of the big muddy flow
my daddy was French, my mother creole
I’m slow and heavy underneath the sun
but I’m more than willing when the night time comes
I’m a well known street, I’m a marching drum
I’m a dancer, a preacher, a sophisticated bum
I’m a wild tchapatoula, a dice rolling judge
I’m a barker tryin’ to fool you into a late night club

I am the Big Easy I been hit by a storm
brought to my knees have mercy lord
I got soul I got heart
all alone I’m coming out of the dark
I am the Big Easy

— from I am The Big Easy by Ray Bonneville

“Oh Mr. Bluebird on my shoulder.
(what’s up Mr. Bluebird?)
It’s the truth, its actual.
Everything is satisfactual.”

We dance round a ring and suppose,
But the secret sits in the middle, and knows.
