Home Sweet Home

MC:  (sings) Home, home, sweet sweet home
     Be it ever so humble
     There's no place like home
        - SHOCKHEADED PETER, p. 22

In this scene, the MC is singing a portion of the 1823 song “Home, Sweet Home” with music by Henry Bishop and lyrics by John Howard Payne.

Deanna Durbin sings the song in the 1939 movie FIRST LOVE:

A completely different, acoustic take:

Complete lyrics:

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 thro’ the world, is ne’er met elsewhere.

Home! Home!

Sweet, sweet home!

There’s no place like home

There’s no place like home!
