Way down yonder, in New Orleans
In the land of the dreamy scenes
It's a garden of Eden, you know what I mean

Creole babies with lovin' eyes
Softly whisper their tender sighs
Stop, ya bet your life you'll linger there, a little while
Stop, won't you give your lady fair, a little smile?

It's the heaven right here on earth
All the beautiful queens
Way down yonder, in New Orleans

Stop, won't you give your lady fair, a little smile?
Stop, give lady fair, a little smile
