For He’s a Jolly Good Fellow

For He's a Jolly Good Fellow

Traditional song, England/U.S.A.

“For He’s a Jolly Good Fellow” (or “For She’s a Jolly Good Fellow“, depending on gender) is, after “Happy Birthday”, the second most popular song in English language (next one is the “Auld Lang Syne”), and it has been translated into many other languages all over the world. “For He’s a Jolly Good Fellow” 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”.

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!
