Why I am Unable to Serve in the War on Christmas

Here is a classic anti-war tune, The Draft Dodger Rag by Phil Ochs. Listen here in RealPlayer.

Mr. O'Reilly, I would love to fight in your war to save Christmas. I, too, long for the day when all the Muhammed worshipers bow the knee to the Baby Jesus and fill their stockings with plastic toys made in China. However...

Bill, I'm only eighteen,
I got a ruptured spleen
And I always carry a purse.
I got eyes like a bat,
My feet are flat,
My asthma's getting worse.
Yes, think of my career,
My sweetheart dear,
My poor old invalid aunt.
Besides, I ain't no fool,
I'm a-goin' to school,
And I'm a-workin' in a defense plant.
