Airborne and Arnhem

you came and fell
into the heal of arnhemís hell
giving your life
you tried to drive
the jerries back.
you could not ...
but there was no lack
of courage and of human will
and arnhemís air received a thrill
of joy and hope
and after that of sadness
but in our heart still stays the gladness
the gratitude for what you did
the price you paid
was high and many slayed
but by this offer
you won the hearts of millions
who were condemned to suffer
