Mr. President ~ original album circa 1962

Glad To Be Home ~ Perry Como with The Ray Charles Singers
( Welcome home!, Welcome home!, 
Welcome home! Welcome home! ) 
 
I'm so glad to be home again 
I promise never to roam again
it's oh so good to be home again, 
I could cry, I'm so happy
I'm back where I had to be,
awfully glad to be home!
 
My heart suddenly mends again, 
among my neighbours an' friends again,
as I start tyin' loose ends again
I could cry, I'm so happy
there's no need of askin' me, certainly you can see 
just why I'm glad to be home!
Why I'm so glad to be home! 
 
( Glad to have you home again! . . . have you home again!
Hope you'll stay with us a while Sir! ) 
 
I'm so glad to be home again  ( He's so glad to be home again )
I promise never to roam again ( You promise never to roam again )
it's oh so good to be home again ( it's oh so good to be  ) 
I could cry ( He could cry ) I'm so happy ( he's so happy )
I'm back where I had to be,
awfully glad to be home ( Sweet Home! )
 
My heart suddenly mends again, 
among my neighbours an' friends again,
as I start tyin' loose ends again
I could cry, I'm so happy
there's no need for askin' me, certainly you can see 
just why I'm glad to be home!
 
< instrumental break >
 
( I'm so glad you've been home again )  
promise never to roam again 
promise never to leave the land I love! 
Glad to be home!
