In My Happy Home In Hohokus
Words by Dottie Burman, Music by Robin Field

I have a handsome, huggable husband.
He tells me business is great!
He's so ambitious to make it grow,
He often comes home late
To our happy home in Ho Ho Kus,
Free from tension and strife.
Our happy home in Ho Ho Kus,
Where everything is wonderful in my life.

I have a dear, adorable daughter.
She finished college in May.
We have such a loving relationship,
She moved back in to stay
In our happy home in Ho Ho Kus.
Free from tension and strife.
Our happy home in Ho Ho Kus,
Where everything is wonderful in my life.

And my Mom is a model mother,
Who is growing older with grace!
We get along well with each other,
As long as I go every day to her place
Near my happy home in Ho Ho Kus,
Free from tension and strife.
My happy home in Ho Ho Kus,
Where everything is wonderful,
Everything is wonderful,
Everything is wonderful in my life.

I have a gratifying profession,
Which is the créme de la créme.
As guidance counsellor, I help kids.
Some call at four A. M.
At my happy home in Ho Ho Kus,
Free from tension and strife.
My happy home in Ho Ho Kus,
Where everything is wonderful in my life.

I have a gorgeous house and a garden
A mile away from my school.
And although I never liked swimming,

I am glad my husband built a pool
At my happy home in Ho Ho Kus,
Free from tension and strife.
My happy home in Ho Ho Kus,
Where everything is wonderful in my life.

And I love my convenient kitchen.
There's a desk in one little nook
Where I happily work on my papers,
Which inspires me then to do laundry and cook

In my happy home in Ho Ho Kus,
I'm a chef, a gard'ner and maid,
A companion and nurse's aid.
I don't mind that I'm never paid.
In my happy home in Ho Ho Kus
I'm a mother, daughter and wife.
And as long as I don't focus
On my neck, where I have this pain,
I really can't complain,
Because everything is wonderful,
Everything is wonderful,
Everything is wonderful in my life.
