"Stop the Cavalry" as written by Jona Lewie and Rob De Nijs....
Hey, Mr. Churchill comes over here
To say we're doing splendidly
But it's very cold out here in the snow,
Marching to win from the enemy
Oh I say it's tough, I have had enough
Can you stop the cavalry?

I have had to fight, almost every night
Down throughout these centuries
That is when I say, oh yes yet again
Can you stop the cavalry?
Mary Bradley waits at home
In the nuclear fall-out zone
Wish I could be dancing now
In the arms of the girl I love

(Dub a dub a dumb dumb)
(Dub a dub dubadum dubadum dub a dub dubadum)

Wish I was at home for Christmas

Bang! That's another bomb on another town
While Luzar and Jim have tea
If I get home, live to tell the tale
I'll run for all presidencies
If I get elected I'll stop, I will stop the cavalry

(Dub a dub a dumb dumb)
(Dub a dub dubadum dubadum dub a dub dubadum)

Wish I was at home for Christmas

Wish I could be dancing now
In the arms of the girl I love
Mary Bradley waits at home
She has been waiting two years long
Wish I was at home for Christmas

    General CommentCan't believe this has no comments. Brilliant, love the lyrics. It's about a bloke fighting in a war, wishing he could be home for Christmas. Best Christmas No. 1. I think it was, anyway.
