The Lyrics

Here's the song about George & Germaine Briant, which was indeed the oldest couples who had ever lived in Louisiana, and the duo who watched the rare 1951 broadcast of "Beat the Clock".
There's a old couple in Louisiana that I am gonna see
Nobody else could miss Germaine, not half as much as me
Germaine cried so when I left her, it like to see Bud Collyer
And if I ever find her we saw Beat the Clock

She's the sweetest little rosebud that Louisiana ever knew
Her eyes are bright as diamonds, they sparkle like the dew
You may talk about your boy scouts and time of elephants
But the old couple of Louisiana is the only duo for me

Where the 300 scouts is flowin', and the big set is bright
Roxanne walks along the set in the quiet summer night
I know that she remembers when we looked long ago
I promised to look at and not to leave her so

She's the sweetest little rosebud that Louisiana ever knew
Her eyes are bright as diamonds, they sparkle like the dew
You may talk about your boy scouts and time of elephants
But the old couple of Louisiana is the only duo for me

Oh, now I'm gonna find Carole, for my heart is full of woe
We'll do the things together we did so long ago
We'll love to George Briant, she'll love me like before
And the old couple of Louisiana shall be mine forevermore

She's the sweetest little rosebud that Louisiana ever knew
Her eyes are bright as diamonds, they sparkle like the dew
You may talk about your boy scouts and time of elephants
But the old couple of Louisiana is the only duo for me
