Said hey-ay-ay-yeah
I said hey-hey-hey-yeah
Said hey-hey-yeah-yeah
I said hey-hey-hey-yeah

Come on everybody, take a trip with me
Down the Mississippi, down to New Orleans
The honeysuckle blooming on the honeysuckle vine
Love is blooming there all the time
Every Southern Belle is a Mississippi queen
Down the Mississippi, down to New Orleans

I said hey-ay-ay-yeah
Hey-ay-hey-yeah
Said look out child, yeah, yeah, yeah
Said look out child, hey, yeah, yeah

Come on, take a stroll down to Basin Street
And listen to the music of the Dixieland beat
Magnolia blossoms fill the air
If you wait, there's a heaven and you ain't been there
Rich moss hangin' from a big old tree
Down the Mississippi, down to New Orleans

Hey-ay-ay-yeah
I said hey-hey-yeah-yeah

Come on, everybody take a trip with me
Gotta go down the Mississippi, down to New Orleans
That's where my honeysuckle blooming on the honeysuckle vine
No, you know, love is a bloomin' there all the time
Every Southern Belle is a Mississippi Queen
Down the Mississippi, down to New Orleans

I said hey-ay-ay-yeah
I said hey-ay-hey-yeah
I said look out child, yeah, yeah, yeah
Said look out child, hey, yeah, yeah

Come on everybody, take a trip with me
Down the Mississippi, down to New Orleans...
