This holiday season, from my military family to yours, I hope you’re able to celebrate with people you love. Whether you’re celebrating far from home, making a dash home for a few days, or starting new traditions with your own family, I hope your holiday season is filled with hope, love, joy, and peace.

And in case you’re looking for a new-fangled holiday song to carry you through the season, I bring you a new and improved version of “Santa Baby” called “Soldier Baby,” sung (just for fun!) by AWN Social Media Coordinator, Joy Ortiz.

Click the play button below and follow along to the lyrics.

(To the tune of” Santa Baby”)

Soldier baby, slip a dream post onto the sheet, for me.

Been an awful good girl.

Soldier baby, so hurry home from training tonight.


Soldier baby, a four-bedroom home with a view, light blue.

I’ll wait up for you, dear.

Soldier baby, so hurry home from training tonight.


Think of all the time we’ve missed.

Think of all the goodbyes ending with a kiss.

Next year we could be apart,

But you will always have my heart.


Soldier baby, I want to hold you into the night, alone.

Send the children away.

Soldier baby, so hurry home from training tonight.


Soldier honey, one thing that I really do need, indeed,

to have you here by my side.

Soldier baby, so hurry home from training tonight.


Soldier cutie, I’ll help you with your uniform. My debrief,

it will keep you warm.

Soldier baby, so hurry home from training tonight.


I don’t need no fancy things.

No designer purses or that Tiffany’s.

I support you through and through.

You know I believe in you.


Soldier baby, I wouldn’t trade this life for a thing. Nothing.

You make it all worthwhile.

Soldier baby, so hurry home from training tonight.

Hurry home from training tonight.

Hurry, tonight.


Happy holidays, from my family to yours.
