Do you know what is means
To miss New Orleans
And miss it each night and day
I know I'm not wrong

The feeling's getting stronger
The longer I stay away
Miss the moist covered vines
The tall sugar pines

Where mocking birds used to sing
And I'd like to see the lazy Mississippi
A hurrying into spring

The Mardi Gras memories
Of creole tunes that filled the air
I dream of oleanders in June
And soon I'm wishing that I was there

Do you know what it means
To miss New Orleans
When that's where you left your heart
And there's something more
I miss the one I care for
More than I miss New Orleans
