Home from work, time for a rest
This time of day it is the best
Altogether in the house
All as quiet as a mouse

Dog asleep on fireside rug
Looks so cozy and so snug
Babe in pram fast asleep
Resting in a perfect peace

Now at last I to can rest
Just like all the very best
To work again not till the morn
The worst time for me is the dawn

For then I must rise from my sleep
The boss happy I have to keep
Work until home time will arrive
Then back to my family where I thrive
