Christmas Song Lyrics
Compiled by Charles P. Scott

There's No Place Like Home for the Holidays
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 face
For the holidays, you can´t beat
Home, sweet home

I met a man who lives in Tennessee
And he was headin´ for Pennsylvania and some homemade pumpkin pie
From Pennsylvania folks a travelin´ down to Dixie´s sunny shore
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

About This Song
This popular Christmas tune was written by Como's frequent accompanist Robert Allen and lyricist Al Stillman, who teamed up to write several hits of the era for Como, The Four Lads ("Moments To Remember") and Johnny Mathis ("Chances Are"). Como recorded the song again in 1959 for his Season's Greetings From Perry Como album, which features a different arrangement and accompaniment from the Mitchell Ayres Orchestra and the Ray Charles Singers. Both versions are staples of Christmas compilations and are frequently played on the radio during the season.

Around a decade earlier, Bing Crosby debuted "I'll Be Home for Christmas," a melancholy Christmas standard about a soldier stationed overseas who dreams of coming home for the holidays. Como's tune shares the sentiment, albeit in a more upbeat fashion. His characters actually do make it home in time for the festivities, braving holiday gridlock ("gee, the traffic is terrific!") for a slice of homemade pumpkin pie.
