Lyrics

Well I've never missed you quite as much
As I did that night in New Orleans
In spotted cat on Frenchmans Street,
You should have heard this woman sing
Transported
To a timeless place where everything was magical
And baby all it made me do
Is think about you

You're twenty thousand miles away
Probably getting up for work
Awoken by a saxophone
The other side of the world
It feels like you can hear me
As I propose my love to you.
I'm coming home tomorrow
And I've got something that I wanna ask you.

And we'll eat oysters and crawfish and seafood all day
And we'll dance all evening
Make love all night
In a cheap motel on the banks of the Mississippi.
Well I'm coming home tomorrow
With a question for you
I'd like to bring you back here one day.
For a New Orleans honeymoon.

But I know that you would love it here,
The city would look good on you
Catch a necklace from the sky
Fear the wind and feal the voodoo.

Playful, proud, and positive
The daughter of a summers day
They'll be dancing in the street
The minute that the brass band plays
A song about the number.
Is it fifty one or forty six?
It doesn't really matter
As the song belongs to both of us.
It's written in the river
And you can hear it when the buskers sing

I'll love you forever
That's why I'm bringing home a ring.

And we'll eat oysters and crawfish and seafood all day
And we'll dance all evening
Make love all night
In a cheap motel on the banks of the Mississippi.
Well I'm coming home tomorrow
With a question for you
I'd like to bring you back here one day.
For a New Orleans honeymoon.

Well I bought this ring on royal
street from a little family jewellery shop
Reminds me of the perfumery in my
favourite Tom Robbins book with aloe bar and coudra
And a love that is immortal
So if you choose to wear it
That's exactly what it stands for
Through life and death and space and time
Comedy and tragedy

I'll love you forever baby
Will you marry me?

And we'll eat oysters and crawfish and seafood all day
And we'll dance all evening
Make love all night
In a cheap motel on the banks of the Mississippi.
Well I'm coming home tomorrow
With a question for you
I'd like to bring you back here as my wife
On a New Orleans honeymoon.
