Here are the full lyrics of the song that became Jolson's signature piece.
Ev'rything seems lovely,|
When you start to roam,
The birds are singing the day that you stray,
But wait until you are further away.
Things won't be so lovely,
When you're all alone,
Here's what you'll keep saying,
When you're far from home.
Mammy, Mammy,We all start our travels,
Looking for a friend.
If you went searching down deep in your mind,
You know you just left the best pal behind,
After all our travels,
Where do we all wend?
Back home to our first love,
At the journey's end.
