I wrote this after I became the 'star' of some folk's home videos:

I Believe

Laissez le bon temps rouler,
They told me over by Vieux Carre.
I boogied down by Bourbon Street,
A fais-do-do to a Zydeco beat!

Hey, everybody's gotta believe in something,
I believe I'll have another beer!

I look up on a balcony,
A Creole mama throwin' beads at me!
I showed her all I had to show,
She showed me hers then threw me some more!

Yeah, everybody's gotta believe in something,
I believe I'll have another beer!

Well, BigAssBeer, three bucks a pop,
I been a-drinkin' 'em all day non-stop.
I empty my cup and before I know,
Some tourists stuff it fulla dough!

Ahh, everybody's gotta believe in something,
I believe I'll have another beer!

Well, I stooped to rest me onna stoop,
When up the street came a tourist trouppe!
A-pointin' thier video cams at me
I dropped trou n gave 'em sum'n good to see!

(Yeah, I mooned 'em!
Shot 'em both cheeks!
They didn't have to ask me,
Boxers or breifs?)

Mmmn, everybody's gotta believe in something,
I believe I'll have another beer!

They all sounds very funny Terry. It would sound even better if we could
hear someone singing your poems with music!

Check this! It's already become a tagline...
