Hey
Vietnam
Vietnam
Vietnam

Vietnam
Vietnam
Vietnam
Vietnam.
Yesterday I got a letter
From my friend
Fighting in Vietnam

and this is what he had to say:
'tell all my friends
That I'll be coming home soon

my time 'll be up some time in june.
Don't forget' he said
'to tell
My sweet Mary

her golden lips as sweet as cherries'.
And it came from:
Vietnam
Vietnam
Vietnam

Vietnam
Vietnam
Vietnam
Vietnam!

It was just the next day
His mother got a Telegram

it was addressed from Vietnam.
Now mistress Brown she lives in the U.S.A
And this is
What she wrote and said:
'Don't be alarmed'
She told me the telegram said

'but mistress Brown
Your son is dead!'
And it came from:
Vietnam
Vietnam
Vietnam

Vietnam
Vietnam
Vietnam
Vietnam!

Somebody please stop that war now!
Vietnam
Vietnam
Vietnam

Vietnam
Vietnam
Vietnam
Vietnam!
