“My cousin used to bring his video games and we would play until the cows came home.” 「従妹がゲーム機を持ってきて、いつも遅くまでゲームをしていた。」

ずっと何かをして、終わりそうにない、遅くまでそれをしたら「牛たちが帰ってくるまで」と言います。もちろん、牛は普段日帰り旅行とかには行きませんが、牛たちはよく町に出かけて夜遅くまで帰ってこないと想像してください。

If you do something for a long time, with no end in sight, you do it “until the cows come home”. Of course, cows usually don’t go on day trips into the city. But imagine that the cows go to town and don’t come back until late at night.
