Do you know what it means to miss New Orleans 
And miss it each night and day?
I know I'm not wrong - this 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; 
I dream about Magnolias in bloom 
And I'm wishin' 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.
