There is only one L in Vermilion

Here’s a song that my co-worker, Leslie Meyers penned with the team lead for Beauregard Parish, Richard Hendrickson (who can sing it!)

There is only one L in Vermilion
There is only one L in Chevrolet
There is only one L in Louisiana
And that is why people say:

You only need one L
To say “I Love You-
And one L to say
I won’t ever leave
But if you won’t be mine forever,
Then I’ll just sit here and grieve.

If you won’t be mine forever,
Then you can just go to -˜L.
