Goodnight Saigon(Vietnam Veterans Version) - Billy Joel (比利·喬)

We met as soulmates

On Parris Inland

We left as inmates

From an asylum

And we were sharp

 

As sharp as knives

And we were so gung ho to lay down our lives

We came in spastic

Like tameless horses

We left in plastic

As numbered corpses

And we learned fast

To travel light

Our arms were heavy but our bellies were tight

 

We had no homefront

We had no soft soap

They sent us playboy

They gave us bob hope

We dug in deep

And shot on sight

And prayed to Jesus Christ with all of our might

We had no cameras

To shoot the landscape

 

We passed the hash pipe

And played our Doors tapes

And it was dark

So dark at night

And we held onto each other

 

Like brother to bother

We promised our mothers we'd write

And we would all go down together

 

We said we'd all go down together

 

Yes we would all go down together

 

Remember Charlie

Remember Baker

They left their childhood

On every acre

And who was wrong

And who was right

It didn't matter in the thick of the fight

 

We held the day

 

In the palm of our hands

 

They ruled the night

And the night seemed to last as long as six weeks

On Parris Island

 

We held the coastline

They held the highland

And they were sharp

As sharp as knives

They heard the hum of the mortars

 

They counted the rotors

And waited for us to arrive

 

And we would all go down together

 

We said we'd all go down together

 

Yes we would all go down together
