Won't you come along with me
We'll take a boat to the land of dreams

Old friends there to greet us
Heaven on earth, they call it Basin Street
Basin Street is the street
In New Orleans, land of dreams
Or just how much it really means
Glad to be, oh yes-sire
Where I can lose, lose my Basin Street Blues
Basin Street, oh Basin Street
New Orleans, land of dreams
