Representative Text

1 Home, home, can I forget thee?
Dear, dear, dearly loved home?
No, no, still I regret thee,
Though I may far from thee roam.
Home, home, home, home,
Though I may far from thee roam,
Dearest and happiest home.

2 Home, home, why did I leave thee?
Dear, dear friends do not mourn!
Home, home, once more receive me,
Quickly to thee I'll return,
Home, home, home, home,
Quickly to thee I'll return,
Dearest and happiest home.
