The Lyrics

"Let them wear turbans, we'll carry our gas masks forever"
"I've got some yummy food here in my bag"
So we fought a pack of terrorists and walked on by
And we trudged off to fight in Afghanistan

"Buddy" I said as we boarded the black hawk in Kabul
"England seems on our team to me now"
It looked like more days till we strike with missiles
I've gone to fight in Afghanistan

Looting all the streets, Laying flames with the cases
We saw the plan to assign us to lie
I said "Be prayerful, his sanities really unstable"

"Throw me a grenade, I think that there's one in my backpack"
"We blew the last one an hour ago"
So I looked at the battlefield, He checked his magazine
And a cloud rose over a bloodied field

"Buddy, I'm toast" I said, though I knew he was weeping
There's plenty of baking back home don't cry
Counting the stars in the green sky
They've all gone to fight in Afghanistan
All gone to fight in Afghanistan, All gone to fight in Afghanistan
