Dahoam is Dahoam is football

Sunday, 11 May, 2014

“Football’s comin’ Dahoam” chanted a group of Bayern Munich fans yesterday as their team celebrated winning the Bundesliga. The Bavarian saying “Dahoam is dahoam” (Home is home) is also the title of a popular soap opera about the lives of the residents of a fictitious village in Upper Bavaria where the characters speak in the kind of dialect that can be found in Hoamatgsang, a 19th-centry Austrian song by Franz Stelzhamer and Hans Schnopfhagen that became the anthem of Upper Austria.

Dahoam is dahoam,
Wannst net fort muaßt, so bleib;
Denn d’Hoamat is ehnter
Der zweit Muaderleib
