The Platters

The Platters were one of the most successful vocal groups of the early rock and roll era. Their distinctive sound was a bridge between the pre-rock Tin Pan Alley tradition and the burgeoning new genre. The act went through several personnel changes, with the most successful incarnation comprising lead tenor Tony Williams, David Lynch, Paul Robi, Herb Reed, and Zola Taylor. The group had 40 charting singles on the Billboard Hot 100 chart between 1955 and 1967, including four no. 1 hits. more »

Well, way down yonder in New Orleans in the land of the dreamy scenes
There's a garden of Eden, ah-you know what I mean

Yeah, Creole babies with flashin' eyes softly whisper with tender 
sighs
And then you stop! 
Oh won't you give your lady fair a little smile?
And then you stop! 
You bet your life you'll linger there a little while

Yeah, there is heaven right here on earth with those beautiful queens
Yeah, way down yonder in New Orleans
Whoo!

Way down yonder in New Orleans, whoo!, in the land of the dreamy 
scenes
There's a garden of Eden, you know what I mean

Well, Creole babies with flashin' eyes softly whisper with tender 
sighs
And then you stop! 
Oh won't you give your lady fair a little smile?
And then you stop! 
You bet your life you'll linger there a little while

Yeah, there is heaven right here on earth with those beautiful queens
Well, way down yonder in New Orleans
Yeah! whoo!
