"When am I goin' back to Flor'da? I don't know, don't reckon I ever will." "Ain't you worried about getting your nourishment in New York?" "Well, I don't care if I do-die-do-die-do-die-do-die." Hey, talk about a-ramblin' She's the fastest train on the line Talk about a-travellin' She's the fastest train on the line It's that Orange Blossom Special Rollin' down the seaboard line (Contributed by Nancy - January 2006) ***** TRIVIA: Written in 1938, there is still some dispute as to who actually wrote this song. Some sources credit Ervin T. Rouse alone. Others credit both Rouse and Robert "Chubby" Wise jointly.
