Perry Como ~ Mr. Saturday Night!

Original RCA Recording
 

( There's No Place Like )
Home for the Holidays

~ 1954 SINGLE VERSION

 
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!
 
I met a man who lives in Tennessee,
and he was heading for,
Pennsylvania and some homemade pumpkin pie!
From Pennsylvania folks are travellin’
Down the Dixie sunny shore,
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!
 
Oh! There’s no place like home for the holidays . . .
[ instrumental refrain ]
When you pine for the sunshine of a friendly gaze . . .
[ instrumental refrain ]
 
I met a man who lives in Tennessee,
and he was headin’ for,
Pennsylvania and some homemade pumpkin pie!
From Pennsylvania folks are travellin’
Down the Dixie sunny shore,
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!
