Christmas Poem 2009: Geaux Saints !

Fansn
For all my friends who are loyal members of the Who Dat Nation! Thanks to Brian and Emily for letting me mooch this photo. Personally, I don’t get into the NFL, but I realize the historical prospects of the hope before us with the Saints success so far this season.

For my part, Kermit’s signature sound has become such a cheerful and soothing part of my psyche over the years that a couple toots and his vocals trigger the ‘get up’ in me no matter where I’m at or what I am doing. My arm instinctively goes up to those around me in a big “c’mon, let’s go”.

Watch Kermit on You Tube

We have been blessed but this year, lets hope we been extra good . . . so my poem selection this year is a song. “A Saints Christmas” from Kermit Ruffins album HAVE A CRAZY COOL CHRISTMAS, from Basin Street Records.

I saw Santa Clause swingin’
swingin’ in the Treme, Jack –
I got a big wish for Santa
And it’s not a new Cadillac.

It’s better than Grandma’s cookin’
It’s better than hot beignets,
It’s better than a lot o’ money,
Much bigger than the Mardi Gras Day!

I don’t need no champagne or caviar
Don’t need no ice-cold brew
I don’t need no big ole BBQ Pit
Wait a minute, that’s NOT true!

I just had a rap with Santa
And we took us a little stroll,
And all I want for Christmas . . .
Is the Saints in the Superbowl !

I saw Santa Clause swingin’
Swingin’ in the Superdome
C’mon and do the bits and boogie,
Let’s rip their butts and go home!

It’s Christmas in New Orleans,
The Saints is on the road,
And all we want for Christmas,
Is the Saints in the Superbowl !

We want to go, go, go to the Superbowl
The biggest Christmas present ever,
C’mon Coach let’s go to the Superbowl
Who Dat Wearin That Black-N-Gold?!

And all we want for Christmas,
Is the Saints in the Superbowl !
C’mon Santa baby, before we get too old!

Horns!
I saw Santa Clause swingin’
Swingin’ in the Superdome
C’mon and do the bits and boogie,
Let’s rip their butts and go home!

It’s Christmas in New Orleans,
The Saints is on the road,
And all we want for Christmas,
Is the Saints in the Superbowl !

We want to go, go, go to the Superbowl
The biggest Christmas present ever,
C’mon Coach let’s go to the Superbowl
Who Dat Wearin That Black-N-Gold?!

I just had a rap with Santa,
And we took us a little stroll,
And all I want for Christmas . . .
Is the Saints in the Superbowl !

And Merry Christmas to Chef Who Dat !
Chef Who DAT!
