Planet Of New Orleans Lyrics - Dire Straits

Review The Song (4)



Standin' on the corner
Of Toulouse and Dauphine
Waitin' on Marie-Ondine
I'm tryin' to place a tune
Under a Louisiana moonbeam
On the planet of New Orleans

In a bar they call The Saturn
And in her eyes of green
And somethin' that she said in a dream
Inside of my suit I got my mojo root
And a true love figurine
For the planet of New Orleans

New Orleans - the other planet
With other life upon it
And everythin' that's shakin' in between
If you should ever land upon it
sponsored links
You better know what's on it
The planet of New Orleans

Now I'm tryin' to find my way
Through the rain and the steam
I'm lookin' straight ahead through the screen
And then I heard her say
Somethin' in the Limousine
'Bout takin' a ride across the planet of New Orleans

If she was an ace
And I was just a jack
And the cards were never seen
We could have been the king and queen
But she took me back to her courtyard
Where magnolia perfume screams
Behind the gates and the granite
Of the planet of New Orleans

Amazing and unique song | Reviewer: Johnny Brit | 2/20/13

so after listerning to the On Easy Street Album for over 10 years i found myself staying at the Hotel St Marie, which is on the Corner of Toulouse and Dauphine in Nawlins. It's an extraordinary song that comes along once in a while, and it invokes true talent and emotions. So listerning to it again while sitting here it feels like there is a presence similar to when I sat at the bus shelter roundabout at Penny Lane bus stop, in Aigburth Liverpool and listend to the Beatles.







one of the magical songs of my life | Reviewer: cindi burkey | 9/7/09

discovered in dallas at kera 90.1 which used to be housed in a wooden shack-type structure and we would play an album side and go up on the roof at 3am and look up at the transmitter tower and bask in the orange streetlights and the 90 degree humidity.
those were beautiful nights.

Breathtaking composition | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/14/07

First heard it during a holiday in Italy.. Almost started crying immediately.
Then listened to the masterpiece for like 80 times a day for almost 2 years time. Tells you somethin'?

Supernatural Knopfler Magic!
