Well, it's been a long, long time now since we've met
And I still think that you're the sweetest girl can get
Though your hair is turning gray you get prettier day by day
And I still think that you're the sweetest in every way.
Now, we've not got very long here to remain
And I'm so proud that in our life there's been no shame
Yes, we're thankful for our son and his little son will come
They have made our life so happy since they came.
I've spent many many long nights away from home
And I know that you've been lonesome all alone
But the time has come and fast just to look back on the past
And thank God for giving us our happy home.
And thank God for giving us our happy home...
