Let's see...

At the Seven-teenth Street Canal,
Six pack of Dixie (or Dix pack of Sixie or errrr...., depending on what point in the song)
Fried onion rings,
(Get a Christmas tree) Be-fore you drive me nuts,
Three french breads,
Tujaque's recipe,
and a crawfish they caught in Arabi.

My kids know the rest but I can't recall all of it at this point. The ninth day is "the Lower Ninth Ward".

8 Bayou Mamas
Lower 9th Ward
10... Arruugh, brain fart. Googled it and darn, I shoulda known it.

How about a chorus of Norris the Nocturnal Neutria instead?

"Norris, you're a Nocturnal Nutria
Norris, don't know what we're gonna do witcha'
Norris, better think about your futura

You and all your pals, out in the canals
Swimmin after dark at West End Park
We don't know where you're goin
We don't know where you been
But Santa don't come till you're really tucked in"

Oh geez! All these years I've been thinking 8 Bayou Mamma's! Sheesh, no telling what other lyrics I've been murdering all these years.

We spent our Christmas Eve in Walgreens with Benny Grunch. A concert in a drug store, in Chalmette. How yat is that? It was definately an interesting experience. We got a kick out of the people who were freaked out that they had to shop around the audience and band. If y'all get the chance next year, go to one of their Walgreens concerts. It's so funny just to see other people's reactions .
