For those of you unfamiliar with this tune come here to check out Satchmo in all of his glory doing this classic jazz tune: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x6b...eet-blues-1959
Won't you come along with me.
Down that Mis - sis - sip - pi;
We'll take a ship to the land of dreams.
Cruise down the river,
Bloggin 2 New Orleans.
John and Kuki's there to greet us
Our cruisemates will meet us,
Where all the bloggers love to meet
Heaven on earth, they call it New Orleans
Erato Street is the street
Where the Cruisemates always meet
In New Orleans, land of dreams
You'll never know how nice it seems
Or just how much it really means.
Glad to be, yessiree
Where welcomes free, dear to me,
Well Melody you are just so full of crap, but I still love ya honey! I put a link on it to 1959 Louis Armstrong performance for folks not versed in the fine art of dixieland, that I grew up cutting my teeth on.
I helped Beenie with her lyrics.....WOW I'm tired! Great song though.....what do you think? Melody

Yes we are funny! AND we have great fun when we are together! So Beenie remind me when you will be in town so I can meet you. Will your Mom be with you? We need to find a karaoke place...for y'all...not me....I'm the audience! Melody
If you are going to walk on thin ice, you may as well dance!
No mom isn't coming...Dad can't raise enough cash to get Venice to take her off his hands. So he's stuck with her. That's OK NOLA is full of great musicians, we don't need her.
I still have to sing the pork chop song for you guys.. still not sure who I want to dedicate it to. Well I have a year to decide.
Can you believe that Kuki didn't know Basin Street Blues? It's a good thing he's coming to NOLA so we can help broaden his horizons into the world of trad jazz and all that good stuff. I think he needs a trip to Preservation Hall so he can experience it first hand.
OK I will look at it in the morning. It is a cute song. Well see what we can come up with. Well girlfriend, its time for me to put the beenie to bed. Take care, D/H is suppose to be home tomorrow. I fear he may not be able to get his car out of the airport parking lot since it snowed so heavily in Chicago, if thats the case, I will have to drive up in the giant blue TuRD and get him and leave the car there until we can get it out. Pray he gets the car out, because I have been to Chicago once this week and that was enough. I hate the city in the winter time, and only mildly despise it in the summer... It's not the city really, its the traffic.
Either way I'll pop in and see if we can't come up with something creative, looks like you were doing pretty well yourself though.
Mel...the things we Louisiana folks will do for our Cruisemate Friends ..I'll work on it this weekend on Sunday after church since there is no football and I'm buying some new 8) 8) Smooth Jazz to listen too 8) 8) ...You know that will distract me from my real mission of catching up on all my back issues of Playboy Magazine so I will be able to spot the last 24 Playmates of the Month at the pool on my Playboy Jazz Cruise 2 weeks earlier
I love Beenie's suggestion that we have Kuki give us a XXXX nightshirt and we can wear it on deck on PJ night..You can wear a Saints/LSU inspired thong and I'll wear a Jazz/60's Motown inspired speedo underneath our nightshirt :: and since you just came from the Zulu Ball we can teach all our Cruisemates how to 2nd line around the deck to our "theme song"..I'll see if I can get Irma Thomas to record it for us on a CD prior to the cruise
