Lyrics:
I know a wonderful place to go,
Where they never see ice or snow,
Now why don’t you all go,
Down to old New Orleans.
You can ride on the old street car,
Even celebrate Mardi Gras,
Now why don’t you all go,
Down to old New Orleans.

Try that red beans and rice,
They’re all so nice,
You can even get a big praline.
Go to the riverboats there,
Any time you can,
Meet all those Carnaval Queens.

They got the best in all the land,
The best of the great jazz bands,
Now why don’t you all go,
Down to old New Orleans.
