You may talk about your cities
In the East and in the West;
You may wrangle with each other
As to which one is the best,
But although this is a village
As anyone can see,
It is the only place on earth
Thatís really home to me.
Though we havenít any trolley
To go jangling down the street,
And we havenít any Court House
Where the politicians meet,
We have a splendid Normal School;
A High School of degreeó
Isnít that a corking reason
Why this town looks good to me?
We have no grand Cathedral
With dazzling pomp and glare;
No minaretted temple
To make the people stare,
But we have some modest churches
Where the seats are always free,
And the men who preach the Gospel
Are men of God to me.
We havenít any buildings
That almost scrape the sky,
We havenít any mansions
To make the poor man sigh,
But happy homes we have galore,
As all of you agree,
And thatís another reason
Why the town is home to me.
Our stores are not the finest
You can find within the state,
But they meet the needs of Mansfield,
And are always up-to-date.
Your business men are wide-awake
As you can plainly see;
Another reason why this town
Is on the map for me.
But the old friends and the new friends
That Iím always meeting here
Is the reason of all reasons
Why the town to me is dear;
And when I get my summons,
And my bark slips out to sea,
I hope Iíll find another home
Thatís just as dear to me.
