Letra[editar | editar a fonte]

Existen varias versións, esta é a mais popular:

When Johnny comes marching home again
Hurrah! Hurrah!
We'll give him a hearty welcome then
Hurrah! Hurrah!
The men will cheer and the boys will shout
The ladies they will all turn out
And we'll all feel gay when Johnny comes marching home.

The old church bell will peal with joy
Hurrah! Hurrah!
To welcome home our darling boy,
Hurrah! Hurrah!
The village lads and lassies say
With roses they will strew the way,
And we'll all feel gay when Johnny comes marching home.

Get ready for the Jubilee,
Hurrah! Hurrah!
We'll give the hero three times three,
Hurrah! Hurrah!
The laurel wreath is ready now
To place upon his loyal brow
And we'll all feel gay when Johnny comes marching home.

Let love and friendship on that day,
Hurrah, hurrah!
Their choicest pleasures then display,
Hurrah, hurrah!
And let each one perform some part,
To fill with joy the warrior's heart,
And we'll all feel gay when Johnny comes marching home.

Tradución[editar | editar a fonte]

Cando Johnny veña marchando a casa de novo
Hurra! Hurrah!
Entón darémoslle unha calorosa benvida
¡Hurrah, ¡Hurrah!
Os homes animaran os mozos gritaran
As mulleres todas acudiran
E todos nos sentiremos alegres cando Johnny veña marchando a casa

A vella campá da igrexa soará con alegría
Hurrah! Hurrah!
Para darlle a benvida a casa ó noso querido mozo
¡Hurrah! ¡Hurrah!
Os mozos e mozas da vila din
Con rosas eles encherán o camiño
E todos nos sentiremos alegres cando Johnny veña marchando a casa

Estade listos para o xúbilo
Hurrah! Hurrah!
Darémoslle ó heroe tres veces tres
¡Hurrah! ¡Hurrah!
A coroa de loureiro esta lista agora
