lyrics

I'm not a US citizen
I don't speak English very well
I never celebrate Thanksgiving Day

I live so far away from the land of dreams
Even so, Mississippi, wait for me
(Oh, please...)

I always dreamed of goin' to New Orleans
How did it take so long to know you, New Orleans?
I wonder how I lived without you, New Orleans
What can I do? I fell in love with New Orleans

I'm just not used to seeing a storm
Ain't no alligators where I'm from
Things are bigger and newer across the pond

It took me time to learn what “The Big Easy” means…
But, from now on, Louisiana, here we go!
(C'mon! C'mon!)

I always dreamed of goin' to New Orleans
How did it take so long to know you, New Orleans?
I wonder how I lived without you, New Orleans
What can I do? I fell in love with New Orleans
