LYRIC

Johnny I hardly knew ya

When on the road to sweet Athy,

Hurroo Hurroo

When on the road to sweet Athy,

Hurroo Hurroo

When on the road to sweet Athy

A stick in the hand, A drop in the eye

A doleful damsel I heard cry

Johnny I hardly knew ya

Where are the eyes that looked so mild,

Hurroo Hurroo

Where are the eyes that looked so mild,

Hurroo Hurroo

Where are the eyes that looked so mild

When my poor heart you first beguiled

Why did ya run from me and the child

Johnny I hardly knew ya

[Chorus:]

We had guns and drums and drums and guns,

Hurroo Hurroo

We had guns and drums and drums and guns,

Hurroo Hurroo

We had guns and drums and drums and guns

The enemy never slew ya

Johnny I hardly knew ya

Where are the legs with which you run,

Hurroo Hurroo

Where are the legs with which you run,

Hurroo Hurroo

Where are the legs with which you run,

When first you went to carry a gun

Indeed your dancing days are done

Johnny I hardly knew ya

[Chorus]

You hadn't an arm, you hadn't a leg,

Hurroo Hurroo

You hadn't an arm, you hadn't a leg,

Hurroo Hurroo

You hadn't an arm, you hadn't a leg

You're a spinless, boneless, chickenless egg

You'll Have to be put with the bowl to beg

Johnny I hardly knew ya

I'm happy for to see ya home,

Hurroo Hurroo

I'm happy for to see ya home,

Hurroo Hurroo

I'm happy for to see ya home

From the isle of Ceylon

Johnny I hardly knew ya

[Chorus]
