    Lyrics

    (Vince Matthews, Kent Westberry)

    From somewhere outside I hear
    The street vendor cry file' gumbo
    Through my window I see him going
    Down the street and he don't know
    That she fell right to sleep
    In the damp tangled sheet so soon
    After love in the hot afternoon.

    Chorus:
    Now the bourbon street lady
    Sleeps like a baby, in the shadows
    She was new to me and full of mystery, but now I know
    That she's just a girl and I'm just a guy in the room
    For love in the hot afternoon.

    --- Instrumental ---

    We got high in the park this morning
    And we sat without talking
    Then we came back here
    In the heat of the day, tired of walking
    Where under her breath
    She hummed to herself, a tune
    Of love in the hot afternoon.

    Chorus:
    Now the bourbon street lady
    Sleeps like a baby, in the shadows
    She was new to me and full of mystery, but now I know
    That she's just a girl and I'm just a guy in the room
    For love in the hot afternoon...
