Lagniappe

key of [D]

Down in the Vieux Carre
All you gotta say is ‘lagniappe’
When you want just a little bit more
Than you have bargained for

For the thirteenth doughnut
In the baker’s dozen
To give it to your
Pretty little cousin
Pull on the baker’s sleeve and say
‘Sil vous plait, mon, lagniappe’

The girls in New Orleans
Are so fine
If you’ve got the money
They’ve got the time
If you want another little
Roll in the hay
Smile real sweet,
Say. ‘lagniappe’

People used to say I had the starving artist look, but it was real. Not because I was anorexic or anything, but just because I didn’t have money for food. I did get ill but I had more of a mental illness than a physical illness.
