In the south land 
There's a city 
Way down on the river
Where the women are very pretty
And all the men deliver

We got music
It's always playin
Start in the day time
And go all through the night
And when you hear that music playing
Hear what I'm sayin
Make you feel alright 

Grab somebody
Come on down
Bring a paint brush
We're painting the town
There's some sweetness goin around
Dreams do come true in new Orleans
