She`s my red hot Louisiana mama 
From a town called New Orleans 
Golden hair and eyes of blue 
My real live Dixie queen 
My Louisiana mama from New Orleans 
 
She lives down on the bayou 
When she`s really wild as can be 
My heart longs to be there 
So that once again I can see 
My Louisiana mama from New Orleans 
 
I met her at the Mardi Gras 
On a warm and bright sunny day 
I had to leave her standing there 
But I`m going back to stay So if you ever go down the south my friend 
 
To see what you can find 
Remember when you get there 
She`s mine all mine all mine 
My Louisiana mama from New Orleans 
 
She lives down on the bayou 
When she`s really wild as can be 
My heart longs to be there 
So that once again I can see 
My Louisiana mama from New Orleans 
 
I met her at the Mardi Gras 
On a warm and bright sunny day 
I had to leave her standing there 
But I`m going back to stay 
 
So if you ever go down the south my friend 
To see what you can find 
Remember when you get there 
She`s mine all mine all mine 
My Louisiana mama from New Orleans
