Stop The Cavalry Lyrics

Songwriters: Lewie, Jona;

Hey, Mr. Churchill comes over here
To say we're doing splendidly
But it's very cold out here in the snow
Marching to and 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 dum dum
Dub a dub a dum
Dub a dum dum dub a dum
Dub a dub a dum

Dub a dub a dum dum
Dub a dub a dum
Dub a dum dum dub a dum
Dub a dub a dum

Wish I was at home for Christmas
Bang, that's another bomb on another town
While Hussar 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 dum dum
Dub a dub a dum
Dub a dum dum dub a dum
Dub a dub a dum

Dub a dub a dum dum
Dub a dub a dum
Dub a dum dum dub a dum
Dub a dub a dum

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's been waiting two years long
Wish I was at home for Christmas

This is awesome song, so festive and not cheesy like so many other songs at this time of the year are, I also think it has a great link with our troops over seas now, and hope that all of them can come home safe for Christmas :)

In the NW it is a Christmas song. With 20 years active duty as a Marine I can fully appreciate it as simply a human emotional statement of wishing to be home. No need for me to view it as a protest.

A beautiful song about how we should try everything in our might to stop wars. That would be a better world indeed.
