Xmas In February - Lou Reed

Sam was lyin' in the jungle

 

Agent orange spread against the sky like marmalade

 

Hendrix played on some foreign jukebox

They were praying to be saved

 

Those gooks were fierce and fearless

That's the price you pay when you invade

 

Xmas in february

 

Sam lost his arm in some border town

 

His fingers are mixed with someone's crop

 

If he didn't have that opium to smoke

 

The pain would never ever stop

 

Half his friends are stuffed into black body bags

 

With their names printed at the top

 

Xmas in february

 

Sammy was a short order cook

 

In a short order black and blue collar town

Everybody worked the steel mill

 

But the steel mill got closed down

 

He thought if he joined the army

 

He'd have a future that was sound

Like no xmas in february

 

Sam's staring at the vietnam wall

It's been a while now that he's home

 

His wife and kid have left, he's unemployed

He's a reminder of the war that wasn't won

He's the guy on the street with the sign that reads

"please help send this vet home"

 

But he is home

 

And there's no xmas in february

No matter how much he saves
