Johnny I Hardly Knew You
Chorus
With your guns and drums and drums and guns, huroo huroo
With your guns and drums and drums and guns, huroo huroo
With your guns and drums and drums and guns
The enemy nearly slew you
My darlin' dear you look so queer
Johnny I hardly knew you
While on the road to sweet Athy, huroo huroo (x2)
While on the road to sweet Athy
A stick to my hand, a tear to my eye
A doleful damsel I heard cry
Johnny I hardly knew you
I'm happy for to see you home, huroo huroo (x2)
I'm happy for to see you home
All from the island of ceylon,
So high in the cheek, so low in the bone,
Johnny I hardly knew you.
Where are the eyes that looked so mild, huroo huroo (x2)
Where are the eyes that looked so mild
When my poor heart you first beguiled
Why did you skedaddle from me and the child
Johnny I hardly knew you
Where are the legs that used to run, huroo huroo (x2)
Where are the legs that used to run
When first you went to follow the gun
Indeed your dancing days are done
Johnny I hardly knew you
You haven't an arm, you haven't a leg, huroo huroo (x2)
You haven't an arm, you haven't a leg
You're an eyeless boneless chickenless egg
You'll have to be put with a bowl to beg
Johnny I hardly knew you
They're rolling out the guns again, huroo huroo (x2)
They're rolling out the guns again
To go to war in France and Spain
They never shall have our sons again
Johnny I hardly knew you
