Take Me to the Mardi Gras is a song by the American singer-songwriter Paul Simon. It was the fourth single from his third studio album, There Goes Rhymin' Simon (1973), released on Columbia Records. Smooth jazz keyboardist Bob James made an instrumental cover of the song for his 1975 album "Two", whose intro has since become a widely recognized drum break.
