Any or all of these above mentioned Cajun lyrics are good.... Dewey Balfa explained to me once that Cajuns sing what they feel fits their their emotions at the time. Any of us "Cous Rouges" (="red necks" - non Cajun speakers) have to memorize Cajun lyrics before singing "Jolie Blonde" or any Cajun song for that matter, but the most important thing is that "Jolie Blonde" is often considered the "Cajun national anthem" in South Louisiana, and they very much appreciate any efforts at playing their music.
