You don't fight, we won't fight
We can sleep in peace this Christmas night
The war is over by the troops decree
It's a dead-end fight and we all agree
But what are we gonna do come the morning light?

You don't fight, we won't fight
We can meet half way on the bloody ice
Comradely bond with no arms drawn
I'm wondering who's side we're on
I got a flask of something strong and I'm sharing it with friends tonight

You don't fight, we won't fight
We can bury our dead, honor them right
I'll pray for you, and you'll pay for me
And we'll re-define bravery
I'm strong and proud but I don't wanna die tonight

You don't fight, we won't fight
I've got half your men right in my sights
But I've seen your lives and I've seen your dead
So I'm firing well above your heads
The world's gone mad but I ain't gonna take a life

You don't fight, we won't fight
Will this courage last past Christmas night?
And what will they say in hundred years?
When they look back on what happened here?
What are we gonna do come the morning light?
