This song is by Country Joe and the Fish and appears on the album I-Feel-Like-I'm-Fixin'-To-Die (1967).

Well come on all of you big strong men
Uncle Sam needs your help again
He got himself in a terrible jam
Way down yonder in Vietnam
Put down your books and pick up a gun
We're gonna have a whole lotta fun

And its 1,2,3 what are we fighting for?
Don't ask me I don't give a damn
The next stop is Vietnam
And its 5,6,7 open up the pearly gates
Well there ain't no time to wonder why
WHOOPEE we're all gonna die

Well come on generals let's move fast
Your big chance is come at last
Gotta go out and get those reds
The only good commie is one that's dead
And you know that peace can only be won
When you blow them all to kingdom come

And its 1,2,3 what are we fighting for?
Don't ask me I don't give a damn
The next stop is Vietnam
And its 5,6,7 open up the pearly gates
Well there ain't no time to wonder why
WHOOPEE we're all gonna die

Well come on wall street don't be slow
Why man this is war go go go
There's plenty good money to be made
By supplying the army with the tools of the trade
Just hope and pray that if they drop the bomb
They drop it on the Vietcong

And its 1,2,3 what are we fighting for?
Don't ask me I don't give a damn
The next stop is Vietnam
And its 5,6,7 open up the pearly gates
Well there ain't no time to wonder why
WHOOPEE we're all gonna die

Well come on mothers across the land
Pack your boys off to Vietnam
Come on fathers don't hesitate
Send your sons off before its too late
Be the first one on your block
To have your boy come home in a box

And its 1,2,3 what are we fighting for?
Don't ask me I don't give a damn
The next stop is Vietnam
And its 5,6,7 open up the pearly gates
Well there ain't no time to wonder why
WHOOPEE we're all gonna die
