lyrics

Oh, there's no place like home for the holidays
Cause no matter how far away you roam
When you pine for the sunshine of a friendly gaze
For the holidays you can't beat home sweet home

I met a man here in Ontario
And he was headed for
Nova Scotia and some homemade pumpkin pie
From Alberta folks are traveling
Down to B.C.'s Sunshine coast
From Atlantic to Pacific
Gee the traffic is terrific

Oh, there's no place like home for the holidays
Cause no matter how far away you roam
If you want to be happy in a million ways
For the holidays you can't beat home sweet home

Take the bus, take a train, go hop an aeroplane
Put the wife and kiddies in the car
For the pleasure that you bring when you make that doorbell ring
No trip could ever be too far

I met a man here in Ontario
And he was headed for
Nova Scotia and some homemade pumpkin pie
From Alberta folks are traveling
Down to B.C.'s Sunshine coast
From Atlantic to Pacific
Gee the traffic is terrific

Oh, there's no place like home for the holidays
Cause no matter how far away you roam
If you want to be happy in a million ways
For the holidays you can't beat home sweet home
For the holidays you can't beat home sweet home
For the holidays you can't beat home
