Look a-yonder comin', comin' down that railroad track
Hey, look a-yonder comin', comin' down that railroad track
It's the Orange Blossom Special bringin' my baby back

Well, I'm going down to Florida and get some sand in my shoes
Or maybe Californy and get some sand in my shoes
I'll ride that Orange Blossom Special and lose these New York blues

"Say man, when you going back to Florida?"
"When am I goin' back to Florida? 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
