"Down in New Orleans" is a song featured in Disney's The Princess and the Frog. It was nominated to the Academy Award for Best Original Song.

The prologue version is a short introduction song to set the mood of the film.

The title song is used to introduce us to various characters such as Tiana, Prince Naveen, and Doctor Facilier.

The final version acts as an epilogue, establishing where the major, living characters are by the end of the story.

Lyrics

The evening star is shining bright
So make a wish and hold on tight
There's magic in the air tonight
And anything can happen...

In the Southland there's a city
Way down on the river
Where the women are very pretty
And all the men deliver

They got music, it's always playin'
Start in the day time, go all through the night
When you hear that music playin'
Hear what I'm saying
(It) make you feel alright

Grab somebody, come on down
Bring your paintbrush, we're paintin' the town
There's some sweetness goin' 'round
Catch it down in New Orleans

We got magic, good and bad
Make you happy or make you real sad
Get everything you want, lose what you had
Down here in New Orleans

Hey partner
Don't be shy
Come on down here and give us a try
You wanna do some living before you die
Do it down in New Orleans

Stately homes and mansions
Of the Sugar Barons and the Cotton Kings
Rich people, poor people, all got dreams
Dreams do come true in New Orleans

In the Southland there's a city
Way down on the river
Where the women are very pretty
And all the men deliver

They got music, it's always playin'
Start in the day time, go all through the night
When you hear that music playin'
Hear what I'm saying
Make you feel alright

Grab somebody, come on down
Bring your paintbrush, we're paintin' the town
There's some sweetness goin' around
Dream do come true in New Orleans
