“Home Sweet Homeroom” ("Home Sweet Classroom")

"Home Sweet Homeroom” (or “Home Sweet Classroom") is a saying that has been printed on wall hangings that are frequently seen in school classrooms. The saying is a variation from John Howard Payne‘s song, “Home! Sweet Home!” (1823). “Home, Sweet Classroom” was cited in 1988 and “Home, Sweet Homeroom” was cited in 1994.


Wikipedia: Home! Sweet Home!
“Home! Sweet Home!” (also known as “Home, Sweet Home”) is a song that has remained well known for over 150 years. Adapted from American actor and dramatist John Howard Payne’s 1823 opera Clari, or the Maid of Milan, the song’s melody was composed by Englishman Sir Henry Bishop with lyrics by Payne. The words are as follows:

Mid pleasures and palaces though we may roam,
Be it ever so humble, there’s no place like home;
A charm from the skies seems to hallow us there,
Which seek thro’ the world, is ne’er met elsewhere.
Home! Home!
Sweet, sweet home!
There’s no place like home
There’s no place like home!
