There’s a valley in Spain called Jarama,
That's a place that we all know so well,
for 'tis there that we wasted our manhood,
And most of our old age as well.

From this valley they tell us we're leaving
But don't hasten to bid us adieu
For e'en though we make our departure
We'll be back in an hour or two

Oh, we're proud of our British Battalion,
And the marathon record it's made,
Please do us this one little favour
And take this last word to Brigade:

"You will never be happy with strangers,
They would not understand you as we,
So remember the Jarama Valley
And the old men who wait patiently".


Fue en España en el valle del Jarama
lugar que nunca podré olvidar
pues allí cayeron camaradas
jóvenes que fueron a luchar.

Nuestro batallón era el Lincoln
luchando por defender Madrid
con el pueblo hermanados peleamos
los de la Quince Brigada allí.

Lejos ya de ese valle de lágrimas
su recuerdo nadie borrará
Y así antes de despedirnos
recordemos quien murió allá.
