What do you say?

What do you say?

What do you say when  you get your orders for Iraq?
Dont worry baby, in six months I'll be back.

What do you say to your two little sons?
Daddy loves you and I'll be home when my works all done.

What do you say to your family you have held so dear?
Watch after my family for me since I can't be here.

What do you say out in the desert when you are all alone?
God keep us all safe, and bring us all home.

What do you say when the order comes down to attack?
You pray to god please watch your back.

What do you say when the sky is lit up and the bombs are so loud?
Thank God I'm and American that I'm free and I'm proud.

What do you say when the fighting is all done?
You say thank God, tell my wife and two sons I love them and I'm coming home.
