The Planet Of New Orleans Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Standin' on the corner
Of Toulouse and dauphin
Waitin' on Marie-Ondine
I'm tryin' to place a tune
Under a Louisiana moonbeam
On the planet of New Orleans

In a bar they call the Saturn
And in her eyes of green
And somethin' that she said in a dream
Inside of my suit I got my mojo root
And a true love figurine
For the planet of the New Orleans

New Orleans, with other life upon it
And everythin' that's shakin' in between
If you should ever land upon it
You better know what's on it
The planet of the New Orleans

Now I'm tryin' to find my way
Through the rain and the steam
I'm lookin' straight ahead through the screen
And then I heard her say
Somethin' in the limousine
'Bout takin' a ride across the planet of the New Orleans

If she was an ace and I was just a jack
And the cards were never seen
We could have been the king and the queen
But she took me back to her courtyard
Where magnolia perfume screams
Behind the gates and the granite
Of the planet of the New Orleans

New Orleans, with other life upon it
And everythin' that's shakin' in between
If you should ever land upon it
You better know what's on it
The planet of the New Orleans

With other life upon it
And everythin' that's shakin' in between
If you should ever land upon it
You better know what's on it
The planet of the New Orleans
The planet of the New Orleans
