2.The Colonel's job is never done
  So he declares time out on Christmas Day
  We held the enemy in our arms
  And we ploughed each others dead into the clay
  Well the Lord said "Death will be no longer
  And all of these things will pass away"
  There'll be no sorrow there'll be no pain
  And we'll swap cigarettes on Christmas Day
