cover

"In the middle of November 2007, Billy Joel recorded the anti-war Christmas In Fallujah. Performing the song live for the first time at the Sears Centre in Hoffman Estates, Illinois on December 1, Joel told the appreciative audience: "This song, in particular, needed a younger voice, someone who under different circumstances, might be over there with those other people." He then introduced Cass Dillon, a 21-year-old singer-songwriter from Long Island. [...]"

It's Evening In the Desert
I'm Tired and I'm cold
But I'm just a solder
I do what I am told

We Came with the Crusaders
to save the holy land
It's Christmas In Fallujah
and no one gives a damn

And I just got your letter
And this is what I read you said

I'm fading from your memory
so I'm just as good as dead

We are the armies of the empire
We are the legionnaires of Rome

It's Christmas In Fallujah
and we ain't never coming home

We came to bring these people freedom
we came to fight the infidel

there is no justice in the desert
Because there is no god in hell

They say Osama's in the mountains
deep in a cave near Pakistan

But there's a sea of blood in Baghdad
A sea of oil in the sand

Between the Tigris and Euphrates
another day comes to an end

it's Christmas In Fallujah
Peace on earth goodwill to men

it's Christmas In Fallujah
hallelujah hallelujah
(hoorah)

it's Christmas In Fallujah
hallelujah hallelujah
(hoorah)

it's Christmas In Fallujah
hallelujah hallelujah
(hoorah)

it's Christmas In Fallujah
hallelujah hallelujah
(hoorah)

Merry Christmas from Fallujah
hallelujah hallelujah
(hoorah)

Merry Christmas from Fallujah

hallelujah hallelujah
Hoorah!

Versione italiana di Kiocciolina
NATALE A FALLUJAH

È sera nel deserto
Sono stanco e ho freddo
Ma sono solo un soldato
Faccio ciò che mi viene detto

Siamo venuti con i Crociati
per salvare la terra santa
È Natale a Fallujah
e nessuno se ne frega

E ho solo la tua lettera
E questo è ciò che ho letto che hai detto

Sto svanendo dalla tua memoria
perciò sono praticamente morto

Siamo l'esercito dell'impero
Siamo i legionari di Roma

È Natale a Fallujah
e non abbiamo intenzione di tornare a casa

Siamo venuti per portare a questa gente la libertà
siamo venuti a combattere gli infedeli

Non c'è giustizia nel deserto
Perché non c'è dio all'inferno

Dicono che Osama sia nelle montagne
in una caverna profonda vicino al Pakistan

Ma c'è un mare di sangue a Baghdad
Un mare di petrolio nella sabbia

Tra il Tigri e l'Eufrate
un altro giorno giunge al termine

È Natale a Fallujah
Pace in terra e bontà agli uomini

È Natale a Fallujah
Alleluia alleluia
(hoorah)

È Natale a Fallujah
Alleluia alleluia
(hoorah)

È Natale a Fallujah
Alleluia alleluia
(hoorah)

È Natale a Fallujah
Alleluia alleluia
(hoorah)

Buon Natale da Fallujah
alleluia alleluia
(hoorah)

Buon Natale da Fallujah
alleluia alleluia
(hoorah)

alleluia alleluia
(hoorah)

alleluia alleluia
(hoorah)

alleluia alleluia
(hoorah)

alleluia alleluia
(hoorah)

alleluia alleluia
Hoorah!
