Around a fire pit with great old platoon
Tending to the scars from my recent leg wound.
The British have stopped their bombardments on me
And it seems that I might be running low on bottled whiskey.
Coming close to midnight, there’s a silence in the air.
I’m staring deep into the eyes of mein treuses pferd.
As the numbing from the alcohol is burning my throat
I stick my head above this trench grabbing Dandy by the rope

I’m dancing with Dandy
I’ve got mud on my feet
And I’m drinking stale whiskey
Soon it will be Christmas Eve

As I head back to fire I forget how cold it was.
My hands are frozen icicles I’m gonna chop them off.
I can no longer feel the rifle that I hold in my hand
My bones are locking up I hope I get another chance to go

Dancing with dandy
With mud on my feet
While drinking stale whiskey
Soon it will be Christmas Eve
