lyrics

On the levee by the lazy Mississippi
When that sun goes down Cresent City starts to cookin'
We'll add a pinch of me and you
To that old French Quarter stew
'Cuz it don't matter who do voodoo
In New Orleans, only in New Orleans

If you want music it's there on every corner
Dancin' in the streets
They got them taps nailed to their sneakers
You can Dixie-Land or blues it, all you gotta do is choose it
You got a problem you can lose it
In New Orleans, only in New Orleans

Bayou ladies, they're tall and tan and sassy
My head turns clear aroung
Every time one sashays past me
If you can't find love down there you can't find it anywhere
'Cause there's magic in the air down in
New Orleans, only in New Orleans

Oh my plane left yesterday
But I'm still here to say

Laissez le....Bon Temp Roulez
In New Orleans, only in New Orleans
Laissez le....Bon Temp Roulez
Only in New Orleans
