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 or.....

I goin' down yonder to new orleans

It's way down yonder in new orleans
