La noce a Josephine

“ . . . Nathan’s song is a polka about a wedding taking place in St Martinville. He lists all the parts of the pig eaten at a ‘cochonerie’ and tells a joke about a creature with a tail in front and one at its back—it’s an elephant.” *

Nathan Abshire & The Balfa Bros. • La Noce A Josephine • 1969
