When Johnny comes marching home


Where have you been Johnny Weir Johnny Weir
when you hid in furs and sequins?
Where have you been Johnny Weir Johnny Weir
when you hid in tucks and sit spins?

Where have you been Johnny Weir Johnny Weir
when you showed us your fabulous closet?
Where have you been Johnny Weir Johnny Weir
when "He's gay" was the common sense posit?

When Johnny comes skating home skating home
he writes down how he did it his way.
When Johnny comes marching home marching home
he kicks up his heels and says "I'm gay."

Welcome home Johnny Weir Johnny Weir,
what comes next for you is unclear.
Welcome home Johnny Weir Johnny Weir,
don't be a coquettish stranger.
