Subject: Lyr Req: There ain’t no place like home

Has anyone come across a comic song with the following (partial) lyrics

Possible title is “There ain’t no place like home”

I sailed my ship on the seven seas
Drank port wine with the Portuguese
Played mahjong with the real Chines,
    But there ain’t no place like home

I paddled on the Amazon
with only my Pyjamas on
Seen trees with straight bananas on
    But there ain’t no place like home

I met a sad faced guy one night
In Dino’s place in Rome
I asked him why you’re ?????
He said “ only when I’m at home”

Ah but as for me though I sailed the sea
Even had kicks in Waikiki
Because you’re waiting there for me
    But there ain’t no place like home

I now believe that it is an unpublished song written by a now deceased member of one of my folk clubs. I discovered a recording of the composer performing the song from which I have transcribed most of the lyrics. It has a pleasant melody and when I manage to eek out the last few phrases, I will air it on one of the Monday Mudcat Zoom sessions.
In the meantime, watch this space!

The composer was Terry Williams.
Here’s the full lyrics;-

There ain’t no place like home”

I sailed my ship on the seven seas
Drank port wine with the Portuguese
Played mahjong with the real Chinese,
    But there ain’t no place like home

I paddled on the Amazon
with only my Pyjamas on
Seen trees with straight bananas on
    But there ain’t no place like home

I met a sad faced guy one night In Dino’s place in Rome
I asked him if he’s lonely, He said “ only when I’m at home”

Ah but as for me though I sailed the sea
Even had kicks in Waikiki
Because you’re waiting there for me
    But there ain’t no place like home

I had coffee in Brazil,
in Philadelphia I met Phil
In Holland picked a daffodil,
But there ain’t no place like home

I crossed the plaines of Waterloo
Climbed the mountains of Peru
Tasted tea in Timbuktu,
But there ain’t no place like home

Some folks go abroad each year Foreign parts to roam
But all the things they do out there, They can do much better at home ( and cheaper)

I’ve seen France and I’ll tell you this
There’s no sensation that I miss
In Paris I had a frenchmans kiss,
But there ain’t no place like home

I’ve walked the streets of Zanzibar
They say that’s where the bargains are
But I’ve fared better in a church bazaar,
But there ain’t no place like home

No matter what the Arab thinks
I’ve seen the Nile and the water stinks
And I couldn’t care less about the Sphinx,
But there ain’t no place like home

In Iceland I once met a girl Who could not get enough
At her request I did my best, But she soon broke it off

Yes, I’ve been a roving son of a gun
I’ve had my fill of foreign fun
But after all is said and done,
there ain’t no place like home

Bradfordian
