’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:

There’s no place like Home!

Oh! give me my lowly thatch’d cottage again!
The birds singing gaily that come at my call,
Give me them with the peace of mind, dearer than all:
