There's a little old town called New Orleans I know
There's a little old town called New Orleans I know
Hey, it's alright, everything swings all night
In a little old town called New Orleans I know

The quarter comes alive a little bit after sundown
The quarter comes alive a little bit after sundown
Hey, hear the beat of the Dixieland band playing down the street
In a little old town called New Orleans I know

We all get together and play on that corner sometimes
We all get together and play on that corner sometimes
Hey, there's old Babe, Porkchop's dancing with a harmonica stand
When we all get together and play on that corner sometimes

Get a muffaletta, get yourself some rice and beans
Get a muffaletta, get yourself some rice and beans
Get oyster stew, got a little on your brand-new suit
In a little old town called New Orleans I know

Now you're strutting around showing off your doobie-doo
Strutting around just showing off your doobie-doo
Hey, how you been, good to see you back on the streets again
In a little old town called New Orleans I know

In a little old town called New Orleans I know
There's a little old town called New Orleans I know
Hey, it's alright, everything swings all night
In a little old town called New Orleans I know
