My name I come from Liverpool , is Francis Tolliver .
Two years ago the war was waiting for me after school .
For Belgium and Flanders , Germany to here ,
I fought for King and country I love dear .
That put bitter cold in the trenches ‘ Twas Christmas ,
Still frozen fields of France , there were no Christmas song was sung ,
Our families back in England , were toasting us that day
Their brave and glorious lads so far away .
Cold and rocky ground I was lying with my classmate ,
When the peculiar sound across the lines of battle came
I ” Now, boys , I listen, ” says each soldier strained to hear ,
As one young German voice sang out so clear .
” He said , you know bloody well is singing ! ” My partner says to me
Soon, one by one , each German voice joined in harmony ,
Cannons rested silent , the gas clouds rolled no more
Christmas wars have brought us relief .
He ended and a reverent pause was spent as soon as
” God Rest Ye Merry , Gentlemen ” struck up some boys from Kent
They next sang “Stille Nacht was . ” ” Tis ‘ Silent Night ‘ , ” I say ,
And in two tongues one song filled the sky .
” There ‘s someone coming toward us ! ” Front line sentry cried ;
All sights were fixed on their behalf trudging a long Figure
His truce flag , showed a very bright Christmas star on the field , eg ,
He bravely , strode unarmed into the night .
Soon one by one on either side , walked into No Man’s Land
With neither gun nor bayonet we met hand-to- hand
We shared some secret brandy and we wished each other well ,
And in a flare lit soccer game we gave them hell .
We are at home, chocolate , cigarettes , and photographs turnover
These sons and fathers far away from families of their own ,
Young Sanders played his Squeezebox and they had a violin ;
This curious and unlikely band of men .
Soon daylight stole upon us and France France again ;
With sad farewells we each prepared to settle back to war
But the question haunted every heart that lived that wonderous night ,
” Whose family have I fixed within my sights ? ”
‘Twas Christmas frost , so bitter hung in the trenches ,
Sang songs of peace as the frozen fields of France , was heated
They work to correct the war had put walls between us ,
Had been crumbled and were gone forever .
In Liverpool I dwell My name is Francis Tolliver, is
Each Christmas come since World War I , I ‘ve learned my lesson well
Call the shots , which would not be among the dead and lame
And at each end of the rifle we ‘re the same
