Goodnight Saigon

歌詞

We met as soul mates

 

On Parris Islands

 

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 home front

 

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 on to each other

 

Like brother to brother

 

We promised our mothers we'd write

 

And we would all go down together

 

We said we's 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 hand

They ruled the night

And the night

 

Seemed to last as long as

 

Six weeks on Parris Islands

 

We held the coastline

 

They held the highlands

 

And they were sharp

 

As sharp as knives

 

They heard the hum of our motors

 

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
