    [chorus]
    Hey, Vietnam, Vietnam,
    Vietnam, Vietnam,
    Vietnam, Vietnam, Vietnam.

    [verse 1]
    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, (coming, coming)
    My time ‘ll be up some time in June”,
    “Don’t forget”, he said, “To tell my sweet Mary,(Mary, My sweet Mary)
    Her golden lips as sweet as cherries”.

    [chorus]
    And it came from: Vietnam, Vietnam
    Vietnam, Vietnam, Vietnam,
    Vietnam, Vietnam

    [verse 2]
    It was just the next day, his mother got a Telegram, It was addressed from Vietnam.
    Now mistress Brown she lives in the USA, (yeah, ye-ah]
    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.”
