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 getting stronger The longer I stay away Miss the moss-covered vines, tall sugar pines Where mockingbirds used to sing I'd love to see that old lazy Mississippi Hurrying 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 one thing more, I miss the one I care for More than I miss New Orleans (Contributed by Mel - June 2004)
