(Home Sweet Home, Jeremiah Morelli)
I welcome you here, dear stranger,
To my humble little abode,
Come rest away from the danger
For long and tiring was the road.
The fire in the hearth is warm
And the company quite charming,
Do stay at least until the storm
Has passed away in the morning.
To entertain you I shall tell
An interesting story of mine,
Of a young man and a love spell,
That took place -oh!- ages ago,
When the white bells still rung the shrine,
And this aged heart was without woe…
