Down in Louisiana, bayous by and by
Pirogue pole or your natural soul
Keeps you tied to a tree high tide
Beer joint lights come on
And then the crowd starts rollin' in

Chorus:
Pretty soon you got stars on the water
You got stars on the water
It's like stars on the water, let it rain

Beaumont to Biloxi
Sea breeze at your door
Gypsy rains, dang hurricanes
White silver sandy shore
"Blue Light" lounge is shinin'
Way out on the view

Chorus:
It looks just like stars on the water
Just like stars on the water
Just like stars on the water, let it rain

(guitar instrumental)

When it's midnight down in Mobile
Moonbeams on the bay
They come from miles around to dance the jukebox down
And dig the good time sounds they play
All across the harbour
Night lights shinin' in

Chorus:
It looks just like stars on the water
Just like stars on the water
Just like stars on the water, let it rain

Chorus:
Pretty soon ya got stars on the water
You got stars on the water
It's like stars on the water, let it rain
