They do their best, they do what they can
They get them ready for Vietnam

From old Hanoi to East Berlin
Commando...Involved again

They do their best, they do what they can
They get them ready for Vietnam

First rule is - The laws of Germany
Second rule is - Be nice to mommy
Third rule is - Don't talk to commies
Fourth rule is - Eat kosher salamis

They do their best, they do what they can
They get them ready for Vietnam

From old Hanoi to East Berlin
Commando...Involved again

They do their best, they do what they can
They get them ready for Vietnam

First rule is - The laws of Germany
Second rule is - Be nice to mo-mo-mo-mommy
Third rule is - Don't talk to commies
Fourth rule is - Eat kosher salamis
