Lyrics

Mid pleasures and palaces though we may roam Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home A charm from the sky 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, oh, there's no place like home An exile from home, splendour dazzles in vain Oh, give me my lowly thatched cottage again The birds singing gayly, that come at my call Give me them and the peace of mind, dearer than all Home, home, sweet, sweet home There's no place like home, oh, there's no place like home I gaze on the moon as I tread the drear wild And feel that my mother now thinks of her child As she looks on that moon from our own cottage door Thro' the woodbine, whose fragrance shall cheer me no more Home, home, sweet, sweet home There's no place like home, oh, there's no place like home How sweet 'tis to sit 'neath a fond father's smile And the caress of a mother to soothe and beguile Let others delight mid new pleasures to roam But give me, oh, give me, the pleasures of home Home, home, sweet, sweet home There's no place like home, oh, there's no place like home To thee I'll return, overburdened with care The heart's dearest solace will smile on me there No more from that cottage again will I roam Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home Home, home, sweet, sweet, home There's no place like home, oh, there's no place like home.
