  • No won't you come along with me
    Down the Mississippi
    We'll take trip to the land of dreams
    Floatin' down the river down to New Orleans

    And the band'll be there to meet us
    Oh, friends to greet us
    That's where the light and the dark folks meet
    A heaven on earth - they call it Basin Street

    Basin Street is the street
    Where the elite always meet
    Out in New Orleans, the land of dreams
    You'll never know how nice it seems
    Or just how much it really means
    And I'd rather be, yes-sir-ee
    New Orleans the land of dreams
    Where I can lose my Basin Street blues

    Now ain't you glad you came with me
    We went down the Mississippi
    We took a trip
    To the land of dreams
    We floated down the river
    Down to New Orleans

    Basin Street - that's the street
    Where the elite always meet
    Down in New Orleans, the land of dreams
    And you'll never know how nice it seems
    Or just how much it really means
    I'd rather be, yes-sir-ee
    New Orleans the land of dreams
    Where I can lose my Basin Street blues
