Don't Cry For Me
Don’t cry for me sweet child, I’m doing what’s right
I would feel so guilty if I didn’t go and fight.
Don’t cry for me sweet child, I will be home soon
I’m making lots of friends here, I tell them all about you.
Don’t cry for me sweet child, Iraq is not that bad
I’m still safe and whole, so please do not be sad.
So don’t cry for me sweet child, because I am still here
And others have lost more, people they held dear.
Don’t cry for me sweet child, I should be the one that’s sad
To see all these lives being taken, is enough to drive a person mad.
So don’t cry for me sweet child, it won’t be much longer
The doctor said that with the right care, my leg will grow stronger.
Don’t cry for me sweet child, so the doctor was wrong
But I’ll still be okay, I won’t be long.
Don’t cry for me sweet child, I’m watching over you
I am now in Heaven, and I did the right thing to do.
Don’t cry for me sweet child, I will always be there
To fight in Iraq, was to show you that I care.
Don’t cry for me sweet child, it would be a waste of tears
Because if you keep me in your heart, I’ll always be there.
