Down south in New Orleans
The prettiest girls I've ever seen
A sparkling eye and lips so sweet
And we make love to the Rumba beat

A ship's at anchor, my suitcase packed
I got a one way ticket, ain't comin' back
Life's a pleasure and love's a dream
Down south in New Orleans

My dark eyed baby, I'm on my way
Back into your arms to stay
I'm tired of work, I wanna play
I'll make sweet love to you night and day

Down south in New Orleans
The prettiest girls I've ever seen
A sparkling eye and lips so sweet
And we make love to the Rumba beat

A ship's at anchor, my suitcase packed
I got a one way ticket, ain't comin' back
Life's a pleasure, love's a dream
Down south in New Orleans

I want to get too loose, on Toulouse Street
I wanna kiss all the Creole girls I see
Drink all day, dance all night
Do it wrong, 'til I do it right

Down south in New Orleans
The prettiest girls I've ever seen
A sparkling eye and lips so sweet
And we make love to the Rumba beat

A ship's at anchor, my suitcase packed
I got a one way ticket, ain't comin' back
Life's a pleasure and love's a dream
Down south in New Orleans
