New Orleans Lyrics

I said "hey hey hey hey yeah" (I said "hey hey hey hey yeah")
I said "hey hey hey yeah" (I said "hey hey hey yeah")
Oh c'mon everybody, take a trip with me
Well, down the Mississippi down in New Orleans
They got honeysuckle growing on the honeysuckle vine
And love is a-blooming there all the time
Well, every southern belle is a Mississippi Queen
Down the Mississippi, down to New Orleans

I said "hey hey hey hey yeah" (I said "hey hey hey hey yeah")
I said "hey hey hey yeah" (I said "hey hey hey yeah")
C'mon, take a stroll down to Basin Street
Listen to the music with the Dixieland beat
Well the magnolia blossoms fill the air
Well, well, you ain't been to heaven till you been down there
They got ? hanging from the big oak trees
Get outta here, tell me 'bout it, I tell ya

I said "hey hey hey yeah" (I said "hey hey hey yeah")
I said "hey hey hey yeah" (I said "hey hey hey yeah")
C'mon everybody, take a trip with me, oooh
Down the Mississippi down to New Orleans, yeah yeah
Well, the honeysuckle's hanging on the honeysuckle vine
Well, love is blooming there all the time
Every southern belle is a Mississippi Queen
Down the Mississippi, down to New Orleans

Yeah, yeah yeah (yeah, yeah yeah)
Yeah, yeah yeah (yeah, yeah yeah)
C'mon, take a stroll down to Basin Street
Oh, listen to the music with the Dixieland beat, yeah
I said the magnolia blossoms fill the air
Well, you ain't been to heaven if you ain't been there
Honeysuckle hanging from a live-oak tree
Down the Mississippi, down to New Orleans

I said "hey hey hey yeah" (I said "hey hey hey yeah")
I said "look out, y'all, yeah" (I said "look out, y'all, yeah")
