Way down yonder in New Orleans
In the land of the dreamy scenes
There's a Garden of Eden
You know what I mean

Creole babies with flashin' eyes
Softly whisper their tender sighs then stop
Won't you give your lady fair a little smile?
Stop, ya bet your life you'll linger there a little while

We've got heaven right here on earth
With those beautiful queens
Way down yonder in New Orleans

You're gonna find heaven right here on earth
With all them beautiful queens
Way down yonder in New Orleans
I'm goin' down yonder to New Orleans
It's way down yonder in New Orleans
