Verse:
When I'm happy, when I'm happy, singing all the while,
I don't need nobody then to show me how to smile.
When I've been out on the spree, toddling down the street,
With this little melody everyone I greet.
 
Chorus:
Show me the way to go home, I'm tired and I want to go to bed.
I had a little drink about an hour ago, And it went right to my head.
Where ever I may roam, On land or sea or foam.
You will always hear me singing this song, Show me the way to go home.
