All the guns are silent on the Western wall
And they cleaned the rifles that we never use it all
And we're writing letters just to pass the time
And the days go by on The Siegfried Line

Oh, they say the English have given up the war
And we heard the Russians won't last through ‘44
But a longtime soldier has an open mind
And a man grows old on The Siegfried Line

Soon, soon they say the war will be over, oh, oh
Home, home, we will be home in the summer, no, no

Oh, we light the campfire and we drank the beer
And we know the flag we fly must last a thousand years
And we eat Dutch chocolate and we drink French wine
And they feed us well on The Siegfried Line

Soon, soon they say the war will be over, oh, oh
Home, home, we will come home in the summer, la, la, la
(We will come home, we will come home, we will come home, come home)
