Down in New Orleans

Lyrics from The Princess and the Frog
Written by Randy Newman
Performed by Dr. John


In the South Land there's a city
Way down on the river
Where the women are very pretty
And all the men deliver

They got music
It's always playin'
Start in the daytime, go all through the night
When you hear that music playin'
Hear what I'm saying, it'll make ya feel alright

Grab somebody, come on down
Bring your paintbrush, we're painting the town
There's some sweetness going around
Catch it down in New Orleans

We got magic, good and bad
Make ya happy, make ya 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
Ya wanna do some livin' before you die
Do it down in New Orleans

Stately homes and mansions
Of the sugar barons and the cotton kings
Rich people, poor people all got dreams
Dreams do come true in New Orleans
