  • It's Evening In the Desert
    I'm Tired and I'm cold
    But I'm just a solder
    I do what I am told

    We Came with the Crusaders
    to save the holy land
    It's Christmas In Fallujah
    and no one gives a damn

    And I just got your letter
    And this is what I read you said

    I'm fading from your memory
    so I'm just as good as dead

    We are the armies of the empire
    We are the legionnaires of Rome

    It's Christmas In Fallujah
    and we ain't never coming home

    We came to bring these people freedom
    we came to fight the infidel

    there is no justice in the desert
    Because there is no god in hell

    They say osama's in the mountains
    deep in a cave near Pakistan

    But there's a sea of blood in Baghdad
    A sea of oil in the sand

    Between the Tigris and Euphrates
    another day comes to an end

    it's Christmas In Fallujah
    Peace on earth goodwill to men

    it's Christmas In Fallujah
    hallelujah hallelujah

    it's Christmas In Fallujah
    hallelujah hallelujah

    it's Christmas In Fallujah
    hallelujah hallelujah

    it's Christmas In Fallujah
    hallelujah hallelujah

    Merry Christmas from Fallujah
    hallelujah hallelujah
