Rumours have persisted for years that this song is about John Paul Jones and some rather decadent exploits at the Royal Orleans Hotel. The line about `kissing whiskers’ infers some sort of involvement with a drag queen. In the song, Jones is referred to as John Cameron, to avoid naming him directly.


One town love, You better take care how you use it
Try to make it last all night, And if you take your pick
Be careful how you choose it, Sometimes its hard to feel it bite
Feel it bite.
A man I know, went down to Louisiana, Had himself a bad, bad fight
And when the sun peeks through
John ?????????? ????????
He kissed the whiskers and left and right

Now, now, now, A fight subsides
Out at a hotel in the quarter, Our friendship took a bash tonight
Now love gets hot, Look far for a sea with water
Grew whiskers sittin' there through the night


Down on Bourbon street, You know it's right
You can see my friend, When they run around us in the night
Most everywhere, Until the closet's bare
Run for the razor, Doin' up my hair

New Orleans queens, Sure know how to schmooze it
Maybe for some that seems alright
When I step out, I'm struck down with my sugar
She done talk like Barry White!

Now, one town love, Take care how you use it
And try to make it last all night
Take your pick, Be careful how you choose it
Sometimes it's hard to feel it bite.
