New Orleans

Joan Jett & the BlackheartsBuy this song

I said a hey hey hey yeah 
I said a hey hey hey yeah 
C'mon everybody take a trip with me 

Way down to Mississippi down to New Orleans 
Where the honeysuckle's bloomin' on the honeysuckle vine 
And love is bloomin' there all the time every southern belle 
Is a Mississippi Queen down the Mississippi down in New Orleans
Oww 

I said a hey hey hey yeah 
I said a hey hey hey yeah 
Well c'mon take a stroll down on Basin street 
An' listen to the music with the Dixieland beat 
Where the magnolia blossoms they fill the air 
And if you ain't been to heaven then you ain't been there 
You got french moss hanging from a big oak tree 
Down the Mississippi down to New Orleans 

I said a hey hey hey yeah I said a look out child yeah yeah yeah

c'mon everybody take a trip with me 

Way down to Mississippi down to New Orleans 
Where the honeysuckle's bloomin' on the honeysuckle vine 
And love is bloomin' there all the time every southern belle 
Is a Mississippi Queen down the Mississippi down in New Orleans
Oww 

I said a hey hey hey yeah I said a look out child yeah yeah yeah

c'mon everybody take a trip with me
