Thread Name: Lyr Req: Papa Noel & Petit Papa Noel
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Papa Noel
PAPA NO√čL, written by Roy Botkin, and performed by Brenda Lee, was originally released as Decca single #30776 (1958). It appears on 2 Brenda Lee albums: "Best of Brenda Lee: 20th Century Masters/The Christmas Collection," MCA Nashville CD 000052002, 2003; and "Little Miss Dynamite," Bear Family 4-CD set 15772, 1995; and on the various-artists collection "Lifetime Intimate Portraits: Christmas Belles," Rhino CD 79987, 2000.

I transcribed this from a sound sample found at Barnes & Noble. Some words are highly doubtful. I assume those are names of Cajun musicians and tunes mentioned in the lyrics, but I have been unable to confirm this.

See ...(?). I know that I'll be there-o.
See "Ol' Cocoon" and "The Moon" led by Aunt Jo-Jo.
See Joe Rivet on "My Sweet Pet" and "Get Me Some Sugar."
Oh, Santa Claus will come tonight down on the bayou.
