Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Twas The Night Before Christmas

twas the night before christmas
bombs bursting in air
even saint nick
was heard saying a prayer

his reindeer were primed
a special mission was planned
to bring gifts to our soldiers
in iraq and iran

the gi's were weary
the days were too long
soon santas elves
would sing christmas songs

christmas cheer
was about to be spread
let's hurry up
get out the lead

gifts were loaded
the sleigh over flowing
a gps for santa
so he'll know where he's going

warm socks a plenty
rum cakes galore
cds and photos
all this and much more

the gift that was missing
the one thing denied
peace to all mankind
too many have died

with hope in their hearts
the sleigh sped a way
merry christmas to all
may peace find a way
