New Orleans ladies are alright
In the hardware stores in the hardware light
Their names are written on the bathroom walls
The New Orleans ladies ain't no ladies at all

They're cannibal girls in a mixed up world
Cannibal girls do exactly what you think they might do

New Orleans men are a wonder
They dress their ladies in diamonds and furs
After the opera that don't mean a thing
Then New Orleans boys they want the real thing

They want some cannibal girls in this souped up world
Cannibal girls do exactly what you think they might do

New Orleans ladies are alright
In their little sports car with a fork and a knife
Take them to a movie or a restaurant
Them New Orleans ladies sure know what they want

They want some cannibal girls in a screwed up world
Then cannibal girls do exactly what you think they might do
