I Have a Grenade

Back to Contents

Technically "I Love a Parade" is not a Christmas song, but it fits "I Have a Grenade" so well that I just couldnít resist adding it to this set of War Carols.


I have a grenade, and Iím pulling the pin.

I throw it hard and I count up to five.

I throw a grenade and wait for the bang,

just to make sure no Krauts are alive,

that rat-a-tat-tat of the Tommy gun,

that rat-a-tat-tat and the enemyís done.

With practiced skill I throw for the kill.

I will while Iím still serving in the military.

I have a grenade and no lingering doubts.

Iíll kill the Krauts in a Hitler brigade,

for I have a grenade!
