  1. Based on Joe Falcon's "La Valse de Madame Sosten". Madame Sosten was Joseph Trahan Falcon, married to Sosthene Falcon. They had a daughter Alida, who was mentioned in the song. In Lawrence's version, he begs her parents to have her, even at the point of elopement (taking her through the window).
