The Lyrics

A newspaper in Louisiana that mentioned George & Germaine Briant after their deaths in early 2005.
News from the parish,
A great newspaper,

It’s an impression, The Clarion Herald,
The paper lets you know what you need to know,
There’s no suppression, The Clarion Herald,
Because there just isn’t, and I said so!

It has a passion, The Clarion Herald,
They even mentioned George & Germaine Briant,
There’s no one lashing, The Clarion Herald,
It’s easy to read, so please just try it!

Your eyes read it so tenderly,
The words answer your soul,

Everyone’s reading, The Clarion Herald,
And you are reading just what you’re thinking of,
So keep on reading, The Clarion Herald,
A newspaper that is easy to love,

You read in the chapel (That’s a bad idea...)
The Clarion Herald, parish news herald,
You don’t like this chapel,
The Clarion Herald, will say you’re mental!

The church is holding a long talk,
They notice you and want you to walk out the door,

You read, keep on reading,
The local officer rides on a foal,
He takes your newspaper and jails your soul,
Next day, no reading The Clarion Herald in your jail cell!!
