Like a kid who stays a -way from school,
I left to roam played hook -ey from Home Sweet Home
I've been like most an -y oth -er fool
Who goes a -way to stray that's why I say
Tie me to your a -pron strings a -gain
I know there's room for me up -on your knee
Bring back all those hap -py hours when
You kissed my tears a -way From day to day
I thought that I was right but I was wrong
Please take me back to -night where I be -long
Sing a cra -dle song to me and then
Won't you tie me to your a -pron strings a -gain.
