Video #1: Here is a video of my daughters and me playing and singing "Home Sweet Home."
"Home, Sweet Home" is a song adapted from American actor and dramatist John Howard Payne's 1823 opera Clari, or the Maid of Milan, the song's melody was composed by Englishman Sir Henry Bishop with lyrics by Payne.
Home Sweet Home 'Mid pleasures and palaces Though I may roam Be it ever so humble There's no place like home A charm from the sky Seems to hallow us there Which seek thro' the world Is ne'er met with elsewhere chorus: Home! Home! Sweet, sweet home! There's no place like home There's no place like home To thee, I'll return O verburdened with care The heart's dearest solace Will smile on me there No more from that cottage A gain I will roam Be it ever so humble There's no place like home (chorus)
