The colonel said "these bodies stink wont someone come and drag them away"
We try to clean them up but they mow us down
And the English colonel looks the other way
Oh the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak
Well I ran for the trench but I had no time to speak
Well my heart said yes
But my head said no
When the English colonel said "its time to go"
He said "what's a few men?"
He said "what's a few men?"
He said "what's a few men?"
The colonel's job is never done
So he declares timeout on Christmas Day
We held the enemy in our arms
And we ploughed each others dead into the clay
Well the Lord said death will be no longer
And all of these things will pass away
There will be no sorrow and there will be no pain
And we'll swap cigrettes on christmas day
Well my heart said yes
But my head said no
When the english colonel said "its time to go"
He said "what's a few men?"
He said "what's a few men?"
He said "what's a few men?"
