I usually walk on the quiet side
And my dreams are mostly tame
If you knew me a few years ago
You'd hardly believe I was the same.
But yesterday I made a transformation
And out of my shell I came
Doing something totally unexpected
I experienced my fifteen minutes of fame.
Kokopeli's Bistro advertised a Zydeco Day
With Cajun food on the menu
But I asked, how can this be "Gumbo"
Since they forgot to brown the roux?
The Blackened Chicken was quite delicious
Being enriched with a crawfish stew
But I wouldn't call it Cajun 'cause the chef
was from Alabama and didn't have a clue.
We couldn't wait for the music to start
So curious to see how they would do.
The band was named the Hurricajuns
Though they weren't from the Blue Bayou.
The fiddle player looked like a member of KISS
Poooyiiiieee, I am not kidding you,
The accordion player was more authentic
At least he'd been to Cajun country...Eunice and Mamou!
I went to introduce myself and get acquainted
As though I had no shame...
To tell them how much I liked their music
And discover from where they came.
I was really flattered when they invited me
To share in the late stage of their game
And play the triangle with the band
And receive my fifteen minutes of fame!
