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
