Oh, won't you come along with me
Down to Mississippi?
We'll take our boat to the land of dreams
Steam on down the river down to New Orleans

Oh, the band is there to greet us
Friends will meet us
See the place where the folks all meet
Heaven on earth, they call it Basin Street

Oh, Basin Street is the street
Where all the elite meet
Down in New Orleans, the land of dreams
You'll never know how nice it seems
Or just how much it really means

I'm glad to be, yes siree
Where welcomes free and dear to me
That's where I'll lose my Basin Street blues
I mean my Basin Street blues, yeah

Oh, Basin Street is the street
Where all the elite meet
Down in New Orleans, the land of dreams
You'll never know how nice it seems
Or just how much it really means

I'm glad to be, yes siree
Where welcomes free and dear to me
That's where I'll lose my Basin Street blues

Well, aren't you glad you came with me
Down the Mississippi? The mighty Mississippi
We saw the place where the folks all meet
Heaven on earth, they call it
Heaven on earth, they call it
Heaven on earth, they call it Basin Street
