Do you know what it means to miss New Orleans
And miss it each night and day
I know I'm not wrong the feeling's gettin' stronger
The longer, I stay away

Miss them moss covered vines, the tall sugar pines
Where mockin' birds used to sing
And I'd like to see that lazy Mississippi hurryin' into spring

The moonlight on the bayou
A Creole tune that fills the air
Oh, I dream about magnolias in June
And wishin' that I was there

Do you know what it means to miss New Orleans
When that's where you left your heart
There's one thing more I miss the one I care for
More than I miss New Orleans

Do you know what it means to miss New Orleans
And miss it each night and day
I know I'm not wrong the feeling's gettin' stronger
The longer, I stay away

Miss them moss covered vines, the tall sugar pines
Where mockin' birds used to sing
And I'd like to see that lazy Mississippi a-hurryin' into spring

Oh the muddy grass and the memories
Of Creole tunes that fill the air
I dream of oleanders in June
And still I'm wishin' that I were there, were there

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

More than I miss New Orleans
More than I miss New Orleans
