Well, Bibbyman...I think ya nailed that one on the head...but yur making it easy for the rest of us!  I guess we can all view this as the example clue...so we know what to do with the rest.  

Sounds like fun, Jeff!   ;)  I say once we get the song all figured out, we all head to the studio, lay some tracks, and put it in the can.   ;D Who's singin' lead vocals?  Anybody got a tamborine floating around?  Any of you southerners got a jug?   :D  I'll bring my trombone along for the ride...

Hey.. I got all them already I'm sure

It should have been a Pukeko in a Punga Tree to start off though.

On the twelfth day of Christmas
My true love gave to me
Twelve piupius swinging
Eleven haka lessons
Ten juicy fish heads
Nine sacks of pipis
Eight plants of puha
Seven eels a swimming
Six pois a twirling
Five - big - fat - pigs !
Four huhu grubs
Three flax kits
Two kumera
And a pukeko in a ponga tree!

You might need to do a bit of research to figure out what some of our items actually are... but thats part of the fun  ::)

You are right about having to do a search. You got me on must of those.
Jeff,
When you say Bibbyman is close, are you referring to his spelling? I need to know. I need to know.

Hey Jeff,

I'd like a little clarification on the can o'peas. Are they good ol'USA grown peas? My next door neighbor is in the wholesale food business and he warned me against those cheap, lima bean colored peas from Bangladesh. They are cheap for a reason. Although the bugs do add protein. If I win the peas, can I trade them for a box of grits instead?
