Do You Know What It Means To Miss New Orleans? lyrics

Eddie delange / loise alter

Do you know what is means to miss new orleans
I miss it, each night and day
The longer I stay away
Miss the moist covered vines
The tall sugar pines
Where mocking birds use to sing
And I like to see the lazy mississippi
Are hurrying to spring
The mardy grass memories
Of creool tunes that fill the air
I dream of orleanders in june
And soon Im wishing that I was there
Do you know what is means to miss new orleans
And there is something more
I miss the one I care for
More than I miss new orleans
