ALTIn Fallujah and Tikrit
it’s just another day
of gunfire and car bombs
and sandstorms on the way.
Another day of trying –
“It’s All Good”, is what we say;
just one more day of dying,
It’s just another day…
If the enemy was smarter
they’d stay silent, and they’d wait
Until we brought our troops home
and left them to their fate –
We want to do the right thing,
we want to help them to their feet
But there’s gunfire in Fallujah
and sadness in Tikrit…
