Oh, there's no place like home for the holidays,
'Cause no matter how far away you roam,
When you pine for the sunshine of a friendly gaze,
For the holidays, you can't beat home sweet home.

(Bridge:)
I met a man who lives in Tennessee, 
And he was headin' for
Pennsylvania, and some home-made pumpkin pie;
From Pennsylvania, folks are trav'lin' down 
To Dixie's friendly shores;
From Atlantic to Pacific, gee, the traffic is terrific.

Oh, there's no place like home for the holidays,
'Cause no matter how far away you roam,
If you want to be happy in a million ways,
For the holidays, you can't beat home sweet home.

(Bridge:)
I met a man who lives in Tennessee, 
And he was headin' for
Pennsylvania, and some home-made pumpkin pie;
From Pennsylvania, folks are trav'lin' down 
To Dixie's friendly shores;
From Atlantic to Pacific, gee, the traffic is terrific.

Oh, there's no place like home for the holidays,
'Cause no matter how far away you roam,
If you want to be happy in a million ways,
For the holidays, you can't beat home sweet home.

For the holidays, you can't beat home sweet home.
