Lead 1 x1
There you are, ha ha, I told you so, Harah! Tralah!
Lead 2 x1
Says everybody that we know, Harah! Tralah!
    C               G
But who hid a radio under the stairs,
    F                           C
An' who got caught out on their unawares?
          A   G     F E       A
When that new party army came marching right up the stairs

     A                                   G       G
When Johnny comes marching home again, Harah! Tralah!
  A                                       Em      Em
Nobody understands it can happen again, Harah! Tralah!
    C                      G
The sun is shining an' the kids are shouting loud,
        F                                 C
But you gotta know it's shining through a crack in the cloud,
        A       G    F   E        A
And the shadows keep falling when Johnny comes marching home...
