Thread Name: Lyr Req: Papa Noel & Petit Papa Noel
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Papa Noel (from Brenda Lee)
I'm pretty sure this:

    See [ma nu man?] and Martha Anne, I know they'll all be there-o,

Should be:

    See ma Nannan and ma Parrain, I know they'll all be there-o,

"Parrain" is a french term for 'godfather' - I'm not sure were "Nannan" comes from exactly but I've found a couple references to it with a couple of google searches; it means "Godmother".

I'm so stoked to find the lyrics for this song, I've ben looking for these for two years.
