Home Cookin'

Album: Fancy Pants (1950)
  • (Home cookin', home cookin')

    (Bob)
    Oh woe is me, what goes with me
    I hate this livin' I've chose for me

    (Margaret)
    Tired of meetin' misery
    Should've never roamed and left that

    (Both)
    Home cookin', home cookin'
    Life is cruel, I was a fool to roam

    (Margaret)
    I climb this hill, I try this dale
    And then I step on a rusty nail

    (Bob)
    Never even get no mail
    She's so far from all that goes with

    (Both)
    Home cookin', home cookin'
    I'm afraid I shoulda stayed at home

    (With a porch light, screen door
    Banner from Niagara falls
    Green grass, lawn mower
    "Home, sweet home" upon the walls)

    (Both)
    That home cookin', home cookin'
    Quiet life is quite the life for me

    (Orchestral Break)

    (Margaret)
    I meet a guy, his name is Al
    I wanna keep him in my corral
    But he says he's just a pal
    Never comes around to try my
    Home cookin', home cookin'
    Life is cruel, I was a fool to roam

    (Bob)
    When I go out, the sun goes in
    The rain comes down and it soaks my skin
    Jonah is my next o' kin
    Darn the luck I shoulda stuck with
    Home cookin', home cookin'
    I'm afraid I shoulda stayed at home

    (With a cricket chattin'
    Summer nights you sit on the lawn
    Dog wants pattin'
    Nine o'clock you start to yawn

    (Both)
    That's home cookin', home cookin'
    Quiet life is quite the life for me

    (Musical Break)

    (Both)
    Rock of Ages on the organ
    Thanksgivin' every day

    (All)
    Be it ever so humble
    Give me that home cookin', home cookin
    And I'll never go away

    My ticket calls for Jasper Falls
    I'm headin' home and I'm gonna stay! Writer/s: JAY LIVINGSTON, RAY EVANS
