(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!
