Well, way down yonder in New Orleans
In the land of the dreamy scenes
There's a garden of Eden, ah, you know what I mean
Yeah, Creole babies with flashin' eyes
Softly whisper with tender sighs

And then you stop, oh, won't you give your lady fair a little smile?
And then you stop, you bet your life you'll linger there a little while
Yeah, there is heaven right here on earth with those beautiful queens
Yeah, way down yonder in New Orleans, whoo

Way down yonder in New Orleans, whoo
In the land of the dreamy scenes
There's a garden of Eden, you know what I mean
Well, Creole babies with flashin' eyes
Softly whisper with tender sighs

And then you stop, oh won't you give your lady fair a little smile?
And then you stop, you bet your life you'll linger there a little while
Yeah, there is heaven right here on earth with those beautiful queens
Well, way down yonder in New Orleans, yeah! Whoo
