I'VE LAID AROUND VIETNAM TOO LONG

CHORUS:
I've laid around and played around Vietnam too long
Summer's come and gone, monsoon's coming on.

LBJ and Ho Chi Minh, they don't get along
They don't get along,
Ho Chi Minh and LBJ, they don't get along
And I feel like I need to travel on.

(Chorus)

McNamara betrayed us with his rules to fight the war,
His rules to fight the war, his way to fight the war.
Yes, McNamara betrayed us with his rules to fight the war,
His rules to fight the war, and I think I need to be moving on.

(Chorus)

LBJ's little daughters are getting married off,
Getting married off, getting married off.
LBJ's little daughters are getting married off,
They'll soon be married off, and I'd like to be moving on.

(Chorus)

Papa writes to Johnny, but Johnny can't come home,
Johnny can't come home, no Johnny can't come home.
Papa writes to Johnny, but Johnny can't come home,
He's been in the Hanoi Hilton too long.

(Chorus)

Want to see my honey, want to see her bad,
I want to see her bad, yes, I want to see her bad.
I want to see my honey, I need her oh so bad
And I feel like I need to be going home.

(Chorus)

Black pajama Viet Cong are coming after me,
They're coming after me, they're coming after me.
The black pajama, straw lampshade hats
Are every where I see and I feel like I need to be going home.

(Chorus)
