Excellent points, JereNYC. I think the sad truth is that the lyrics for the title song of "Mame" are simply not very good, at least not in context. Herman thought it would be funny and amusing to write a song about a bunch of Southerners singing about black eyed peas and grits, magnolia trees, picking cotton, mint juleps, "reviving the South," and so on, even though none of that has anything to do with the supposed reason they're celebrating Mame, which is that she went on a fox hunt and brought the creature back alive rather than killing it.
