|There's a place I know
Where wonderful feelings of pleasure
Will touch your heart
And delight the senses of your mind
Come with me to T.J.'s Gingerbread House
As the door opened I was hypnotized
By the warm eyes and sparking faces
Of lovely Noelle and handsome Dupree.
As they recalled for me the enchanting story
Of T.J.'s Gingerbread House I began to feel
Intoxicated by the mystical smells floating out of the kitchen
Where Mama T.J. herself was busy performing her magic...
And smiling gingerbread men danced
With beautiful handmade dolls
To the happy sounds of pots and pans bubbling over with
fabulous Jambalaya, sassy corn bread
and Cajun come-back-dirty-rice
I too became a believer...
Dreams do come true at the Gingerbread House.
