Testo della canzone Welcome Home 23 Jan 1913 di Irving Berlin
Album: Miscellaneous
1st verse:] Jack Jones left his wife and home
Left his wife and home to roam
Sunday night a year ago last May; the other day
He came back wrapped up in fear
Wond’ring if his wifey, dear
Would receive him in the same old way: and say
As he slowly walked inside
She looked at him and cried

[chorus:] I’m mighty glad that you came back
Welcome home, welcome home, welcome home
I’m mighty glad that you came back, Jack
Night and day I thought about you
It was hard to live without you
I don’t know of any braver life saver
I need some brand new winter clothes
Welcome home, welcome home, welcome home
To protect me when the winter snows blow
Here’s some bills that you can pay
They’ve been due since ‘way last May
Landlord comes for rent today
Welcome home

[2nd verse:] Sit right down said she to he
You look like a Christmas tree!
Hang your whiskers, Mister Santa Claus, upon your jaws
Your voice sounds a trifle old
I’m afraid you’ve got a cold
Cough right up and don’t you even pause, because
Wifey needs an Easter hood
The stove needs coal and wood
