“For He’s a Jolly Good Fellow” (or “For She’s a Jolly Good Fellow”, depending on the person we sing it for) is a song to wish in case of birthday, marriage, birth, or just for good luck, health or to congratulate somebody.

The tune is based on the 18th century French song “Marlbrough s’en va-t-en guerre” and the song “The bear went over the mountain” is in turn based on “For He’s a Jolly Good Fellow”.

The song is one of the most popular ones in English-language countries, and it has been translated into many other languages all over the world.


“For He’s a Jolly Good Fellow” lyrics

British version

For he’s a jolly good fellow, for he’s a jolly good fellow
For he’s a jolly good fellow, and so say all of us
And so say all of us, and so say all of us
For he’s a jolly good fellow, for he’s a jolly good fellow
For he’s a jolly good fellow, and so say all of us!

American version

For he’s a jolly good fellow, for he’s a jolly good fellow
For he’s a jolly good fellow, which nobody can deny
Which nobody can deny, which nobody can deny
For he’s a jolly good fellow, for he’s a jolly good fellow
For he’s a jolly good fellow, which nobody can deny!
