Home, Sweet Home! (1)

'Mid pleasures and palaces, though we may roam,
Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home!
A charm from the skies seems to hallow us there,
Which, seek through the world, is ne'er met with elsewhere.
Home! home! sweet, sweet, home!
There's no place like home!
There's no place like home!

Home, Sweet Home! (2)

The poor sailor boy, as o'er billows he roams,
Oft sighs for the cot he has left far at home;
And the sweet village bells, so pleasant and gay,
And the lass that he loves, who is far, far away.
Home! home! sweet, sweet, home!
There's no place like home!
There's no place like home!

Home, Sweet Home! (3)

An exile from home, splendour dazzles in vain,
Oh! give me my lovely thatched cottage again:
The birds singing gaily, that came at my call,
Give these, with contentment, much dearer than all.
Home! home! sweet, sweet, home!
There's no place like home!
There's no place like home!

Home, Sweet Home! (4)
