I'm going back down in New Orleans
I'm going back down in New Orleans
Well, I'm going where I can get my rice and beans

We are the cooking'est Creoles in the world you ever seen
We are the cooking'est Creoles in the world you ever seen
And if you don't believe me, follow me back down to New Orleans

Well, my man is a doctor and he lives off of rice and beans
Well, my man is a doctor and he lives off of rice and beans
That's why he done gone and left me back down in New Orleans

I've got the cooking'est sister in the world you ever seen
I've got the cooking'est sister in the world you ever seen
But she can't cook nothing but them rice and beans

And you can't tell me nothing, baby, that I never seen
And you can't tell me nothing, baby, that I never seen
And if you don't believe me, follow me back to New Orleans
