This is an original tune by Kirby Shaw with a Cajun flair. With a driving tempo, the challenge for your singers for this piece is to achieve clear diction. The verses are extremely wordy and set in repeated eighth notes. The singers will need to spit out those consonants. The harmonies are traditional harmonies with simple parallel chords and smooth part writing. Any choir should be able to learn the notes and rhythms quickly. It is a fun piece!
