Barrel bombs barrel bombs whistle all the way

Song of the Syrian Arab Airforce
( لقوات الجوية العربية السورية‎ )
To the air of Jingle Bells

Dashing through the sky
in a Syrian airforce plane
O’er the streets we fly
Laughing all the way
Barrel bombs we fling
Setting towns alight
what fun it is to laugh and sing
A slaying song tonight

CHORUS:
Barrel bombs barrel bombs
whistle all the way
Oh what fun it is to ride
In a Syrian airforce plane
Barrel bombs barrel bombs
Whistle all the way
Oh what fun it is to ride
In a Syrian airforce—Russian export—plane!

AWAY IN ALEPPO

To the air of Away in a Manger

Away in Aleppo
A stone for a bed
The little war orphan
Lay down his sweet head

The bombs in the night sky
dropped down where he lay
But the little war orphan
Had no food that day.

The bombs are exploding
The baby awakes
But the little war orphan
No crying he makes

Bless all the dear children
In Aleppo’s enclave
And may the White Helmets
Dig him out of his grave

SILENT NIGHT HOMSI NIGHT

Silent night Homsi night
All is calm all is bright
Siege is over but no-one saved
Bombs are falling on Al Waer
Homs as quiet as the grave (2)

Silent night Homsi night
Grass and olives was their diet
‘Starve or submit’ the regime said
Bakeries bombed there was no bread
Sleep in hunger and dread (2)

Silent night Homsi night
UN grumbled at the sight
Abdel Basset’s team was brave
But Friends of Syria never came
Homs – as quiet as the grave (2)
