Lyrics
Well, a-way down yonder in New Orleans,
In the land of the dreamy scenes,
a-There's a Garden of Eden.
a-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,
a-With those beautiful queens.
Yeah, way down yonder in New Orleans.
whoo!

[Instrumental break.]

Way down yonder in New Orleans, whoo!
In the land of the dreamy scenes,
a-There's a Garden of Eden,
a-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,
a-With those beautiful queens.
Well, way down yonder in New Orleans.

Yeah, whoo!

[Instrumental to end.]
