Performed by The Jingle Janglers
(This is a rough studio demo, but it's getting close!)

From the Sights and Sounds of Mardi Gras,

To the Scenic wrought-iron Fences

Nu Awlins is a city,

That will stimulate your senses!

I am Tasting okra gumbo over rice, topped with file',
And I Taste five pounds of crawfish, that were boiled the spicy way
I am Tasting all the Kingcake, with colors, oh so fine!
And if I "get the Baby", the next party will be mine.

I am Seeing lovely oak trees, which grace our city park
I See the shimmer of the moonlight, on the Mississippi dark
I am Seeing wistful tourists, as they wander through the square
I See Azaleas and Crepe Myrtle oh so pretty, everywhere

I am Hearing all the music, as it floats down Bourbon Street
I Hear the Streetcar on the Avenue, which clangs a steady beat
I'm Hearing waves that splash the sea-wall, on the lake as sunlight fades
And I Hear, "Throw me something Mister," from the crowds at the parades

Now if your heart has been enamored,

By the charm of New Orleens

Come along and sing this song,

Cause you know what it means.

I am Tasting okra gumbo over rice, topped with file',
And I Taste five pounds of crawfish, that were boiled the spicy way
I am Tasting all the Kingcake, with colors, oh so fine!
And if I "get the Baby", the next party will be mine.

I am Seeing lovely oak trees, which grace our city park
I See the shimmer of the moonlight, on the Mississippi dark
I am Seeing wistful tourists, as they wander through the square
I See Azaleas and Crepe Myrtle oh so pretty, everywhere

I am Hearing all the music, as it floats down Bourbon Street
I Hear the Streetcar on the Avenue, which clangs a steady beat
I'm Hearing waves that splash the sea-wall, on the lake as sunlight fades
And I Hear, "Throw me something Mister," from the crowds at the parades

With all this tasting, seeing, hearing,

From this place I shall not roam

And you must know that I'm smilin',

'Cause New Orleans is my home

You must know that, I'm smilin',

'Cause ... New Orleans is my home


A fun New Orleans song!
