do you know what it means to miss new orleans lyrics – fats domino

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, the tall sugar pines
where mockingbirds used to sing
and i like to see the lazy mississippi
hurrying into spring

the moonlight on the bayou
a creole tune that filled the air
i dream about magnolias in june
and now i’m wishing that 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

the moonlight on the bayou
a creole tune that filled the air
i dream about magnolias in june
and now i’m wishing that i was there

do you know what it means to miss new orleans?
in that’s where you left your heart
if there’s something more, i miss the one i care for
more than i miss new orleans
