What is a Cajun many people still do ask....
To supply one with an answer is not an easy task....
For a Cajun is the product of his heritage and this land....
As this way of life is granted through God's own hand.
From Acadia up north they were sent in exile....
Forced here to South Louisiana their fate to reconcile....
And reconcile they did and now they are so proud....
That praises to the Cajuns are shouted out loud.
From the swamps, bayous, marshes and the sea....
These people have hunted and fished, and lived free....
This mighty paradise so full of nature's treasures....
Is one that sustains and also gives us many pleasures.
But the people are the real resource you see....
For they are among the very best that can be....
These folks love their fun and really do care about you....
This is the accepted philosophy of the bayou.
Cajuns are a very unique people in every respect....
Just listen when they speak in their very own dialect....
They speak of the joy of living and what it's all about....
"Laissez les bon temps rouler" is what they all shout.
Let the good times roll is what this phrase means....
Its heard throughout South Louisiana down to New Orleans....
This Cajun and this culture is unique as you may find....
Why it is perhaps the best ever invented by mankind.
