23rd Oct: It's time for the Second TV Tropes Halloween Avatar Contest! Details here.
There's a bat they call Lestat who will sink his teeth in you,
You might meet a creature from a swampy black lagoon.
And if the moon is full
You might meet the loup-garou!
Don't go by the river side,
You'll be sorry if you do!
Stately homes and mansions
Of the sugar barons and the cotton kings
Rich people, poor people, all got dreams
Dreams do come true in New Orleans
—The Princess and the Frog, "Down in New Orleans"
Mentally or physically
I wanna be in the New Orleans
Red Hot Chili Peppers, "Apache Rose Peacock"
Long before the Superdome
Where the Saints of football play
Lived a city that the damned call home
Hear their hellish rondelet...
Home of pirates, drunks and whores
Tacky overpriced souvenir stores
If you want to go to hell, you should take a trip
To the Sodom and Gomorrah of the Mississip'
Stinking, Rotten, vomiting, vile
Putrid, brackish, maggotty, foul
Crummy, lousy, rancid, and rank
