I was out on the leave at the time just duckin' the fog nosin' around like a hungry dog
I saw a crowd of people on the White House lawn all carrying signes about VietNam
It was a strange looking bunch but then I never could understand some people
The telegram of sympathy then he handed me a pen
My friends over there who're givin' their lives
I said Ho-Chi who he said Ho-Chi-Min people's leader North VietNam
I though I'd better move before I got in a fight
Then I thought of another telegram that I've just read
It wasn't too long till I was feelin' downright sick
I thought to myself boy ain't that right
I said it's a shame that every man who ever died up there that far off land
Course he looked at me like I was kinda crazy just another warmonger
To cool myself off and pacify my brain
Had about an hour to catch myself a plane
