The Lyrics

In Kunar Province in Afghanistan, two US Army soldiers continued to cook steaks for a cookout while their base came under attack by the Taliban. They didn't flinch!
Cooking in battle dudes!
Out of line?

Taliban assault was nothing new
Incoming fire
Reply with mortars

Two soldiers would have none of that
Cookout still goin' down
Steaks on the grille needed tending
Regardless of what was inbound!

Cooking in battle dudes
Out of line?
Fighting declined!

Scrambling troops
Firefight blues
Taliban were bad news
But it didn't stop the grille
Dudes were not scared
Kept to the kitchen duty
Had the cookout, ate their fill!

The troops did eat
Cooking in battle dudes!
Performance? Fine!
(Duplicated a Rommel feat)*
* during WW2 a similar situation happened when German troops came under air attack in North Africa. German soldiers cooking steaks and eggs off a tank didn't move and continued on cooking! Rommel was impressed!

Larry, this is nothing new. Montgomery in WW2 used to have his troops take tea and biscuit breaks during battles! Rommel had Luftwaffe aircraft lift wet Coca-Cola bottles captured in N Africa to 20,000 ft to freeze them ice cold for his troops! German mobile kitchens seldom stopped cooking in midst of battle. The French would stop to eat bread and cheese, and so on...
