Last night when I was writing the Jazz Cats post, this song kept going through my head:

Down in New Orleans
Where the blues was born
It takes a cool cat
To blow a horn.
On LaSalle
and Rampart Street
The combo’s there with a mambo beat.

The song is called Mardi Gras Mambo, and it goes like this:

Now, listen to the song again, but sing this words instead

Down in New Orleans
where the sounds are sweet
In a back-alley
corner off of Bourbon Street
There’s some hipster kitties
(they don’t chase no rats).
They make swinging music – ’cause they’re Jazz Cats!

Isn’t it cool?
