Jingle Bells, Revised

I had a brainstorm the other day: an idea for a novelty song that could become a Christmas classic (see below). Instead of “Jingle Bells,” it’s “Jolies Belles,” to the same tune. It’s all about a guy who likes to dance with pretty girls and spends the whole day doing just that — in one Cajun town after another. (I actually did that once, thirty years ago, and it was fun, too!) All I need now is a Cajun band to record it for me. If you know of one that might be interested, please pass this on. (If you don’t know of any, but would like to, here’s a list. There’s nothing better than a good Cajun or Zydeco band for a party or special event.)
