​Vietnam Song (Live From Woodstock)

This song is by Country Joe and the Fish.

Intro Spoken
Give me an "F! ..."F"! give me a "U"! ..."U"!
Give me a "C"! ..."C" Give me a "K"! ..."K"!
WHATS THAT SPELL? ..."FUCK!" (x5)

Well common all of you big strong men, uncle sam needs your help again,
He got himself in a terrible jam, way down yander in Vietnam,
Put down your books and pick up a gun, we're gunna have a whole lotta fun.

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

Now come on wall street don't be slow, why man this's war a-go-go,
There's plenty good money to be made, supplyin' the army with the tools of the trade,
Just hope and pray that when they drop the bomb, they drop it on the Vietcong.

Now common generals lets move fast, your big chance is here at last.
Night you go out and get those reds 'cause the only good commie is one that's dead,
You know that peace can only be won, when you blow 'em all to kingdom come.

(Spoken)- listen people I don't know you expect to ever stop the war if you can't sing any better than that... there's about 300,000 of you fuc|ers out there... I want you to start singing...

Now common mothers throughout the land, pack your boys off to vietnam,
Common fathers don't hesitate, send your sons off before it's too late,
Be the first one on your block, to have your boy come home in a box

Alrite!
