You Can Help

It’s Happy This and Merry That
Can’t you see that hearts are breaking?
So many people, crying, suffering
While we go out celebrating

Jesus has his birthday soon
But another mother’s lost her son
She can’t recall it is Christmas time
His battle wasn’t won

Another name gets carved in stone
His photo goes up there, on TV
“I think that is sad”, I hear you say
“But what’s it got to do with me?”

“They know the risks when they sign on
No one forces them to join”
But if there was “call up” then you would see
The other side of the coin

“I didn’t start any stupid war
I never wanted anyone to die”
They know that, those lads over there
But you are their reason why

So you can celebrate your Christmas
In whatever way you chose
You can eat and drink and hug your kids
Or pickle yourself in booze

The choice is yours because of them
So ask what you can do
To help them and their families
Who give their Christmases for you
