Verse:
Like a kid who stays away from school,
I left to roam, played hookey from Home Sweet Home.
I've been like most any other fool,
Who goes away to stray that's why I say:
 
Chorus:
Tie me to your apron strings again,
I know there's room for me upon your knee.
Bring back all those happy hours when,
You kissed my tears away, from day to day.
I thought that I was right, but I was wrong,
Please take me back tonight, where I belong.
Sing a cradle song to me and then,
Won't you tie me to your apron strings again.
