There’s a fellow roaming round the streetI think most of all I’d like to meetI must consider him a clever ladMaking like a young sir galahadEverywhere I go I think he’s beenHe autographs the walls around the sceneIf you look hard enough you’ll find him thereIn rooms of public places everywhereKilroy was hereLeft his name around the placeKilroy was hereThought I’ve never seen his faceOn a short vacation with my friendsI found I had time on my hands to spareSurveyed my telescope around the landAnd saw his name imprinted in the sandKilroy was hereLeft his name around the placeKilroy was hereThought I’ve never seen his faceOn a short vacation with my friendsI found I had time on my hands to spareSurveyed my telescope around the landAnd saw his name imprinted in the sandI wonder could he be a cavalierOr a roving musketeerOr just a dustman who’s insaneEveryplace regardless where or when.... strikes again and again and againIf I ever meet that man at allI’ll hang a plague upon my bedroom wallA monument erected in his nameWould help to contribute his nameKilroy was hereLeft his name around the placeKilroy was hereThought I’ve never seen his faceOn a short vacation with my friendsI found I had time on my hands to spareSurveyed my telescope around the landAnd saw his name imprinted in the sandKilroy was hereThough I’ve never seen his face
