OUR MUSICAL HOME.
Copyright, 1893, by Spaulding & Gray
Words and Music by Win J. Hardman.
Music, sweet music's a language that nations can all understand;
Oh, how It cheers the poor wand'rer when far from his dear native land;
You may drop in any evening, for sisters or I seldom roam,
And hear a selection from our grand collection, in our musical home.
Jennie can play you a solo, without any note being false;
Katie can play a mazurka, and Nellie a classical waltz;
Love Songs and songs that are warbled as far as the ships sail the foam-
In fact, we have everything that you can play or sing in our musical home.
Mother sits rocking and smiling, as happy as happy can be;
Father is proud of his daughters, at least, that's been whispered to me;
All the young men we have captured, they gather, like bees 'round the comb,
At our new piano, and sweetly they sing O, in our musical home.-Refrain.
