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 Iíll be coming home soon
(Coming, coming, coming)
My time will be hot sometime in June
Donít forget, he said, to tell my sweet Mary
(Mary, my sweet Mary)
Her golden lips are sweet as cherry

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 USA
And this is what she wrote and say:
Donít 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, yeah, Vietnam
Somebody please stop that war now!
