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 will be, hope some time in June

Don't forget he said to tell my sweet Mary
"Her golden lips are sweet as cherry"
And it came from
Vietnam, Vietnam, Vietnam, Vietnam
Vietnam, Vietnam, Vietnam

It was just a next day his Mother got a telegram
It was addressed from Vietnam
Now Mistress Brown she lives in the usa
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

It was just a next day his mother got the telegram
It was addressed from Vietnam
Now Mistress Brown she lives in the usa
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 now
Vietnam, Vietnam, Vietnam, Vietnam
Vietnam, Vietnam, Vietnam
What I'm saying now somebody stop that war now
Vietnam, Vietnam, Vietnam, Vietnam
Vietnam, Vietnam
