In the L shaped state, down below,

people will greet you with a friendly “hullow.”

Enter Louisiana;

With blends of cultures from all around,

and a French Quarter in New Orleans town.

Enjoy Mardi Gras in February,

and feast on dishes with quite a lot of dairy.

Welcome to Louisiana;

The 18th state to join the union,

an excellent place to host a reunion.

With the Mississippi River flowing through,

it’s the home to 1,140 people named Drew, ’tis true!

With the Brown Pelican as the state bird,

there used to be Buffalo by the herd.

The Bayou state is pretty great,

So enjoy this town, and don’t be late.

Good Old Louisiana.
