In the South Land there's a
down on the river
Where the women are very pretty
And all the men deliver
They got musicIt's always playin'
Start in the day time, go all through the night
When you hear that music playin'Hear what I'm saying, it make you feel alright Grab somebody, come on down Bring your paintbrush, we're paintin' the town.
Honey, there's some sweetness goin' 'round Catch it down in New Orleans (musical intro)
We got magic, good and badMake you happy or make you real sad Get everything you want, lose what you had
Down here in New Orleans Hey partner, don't be shy Come on down here and give us a try
You wanna do some livin' before you dieDo it down in New Orleans (musical intro)
Stately homes and mansionsOf the Sugar Barons and the Cotton Kings Rich people, poor people, all got dreams
Dreams do come true in New Orleans
