Officer
Sorry sergeant we must eccelerate
State department says we evacuate
The word is we must be out by dawn

Chris
Christ!

Officer
Sorry sergeant its straight from Washington
No one leaves the grounds now not anyone
As fast as we load the planes we're gone

A Vietnamese
But my girl's out there!

Marine Captian
OK keep quiet don't shout
The ambassador wont leave till everyone's out
The choppers on their way there's room for you all

Marine

Their climbing over the wall
Get back!

Officers
Get back I tell you don't shout
The ambassador won't leave till everyone's out

Marine
The ambassador just sent an order to freeze

Marine Captian
That's It! No more Vietnamese
Get in!

A Vietnamese
But my girl's out there!

Kim
I'm the wife of a soldier
Please let me through!
Help me who must I pay
Tell me what I must do

A Vietnamese
Let me out, I got to go back for my bride

Kim
Listen someone!
My husband is waithing inside!

A Vietnamese
Please Kim, hear the phone
I can't get there, please be home

Kim
Please Chris, no one sees!
I am lost here. Find me please!

Both
Please, get me through -
I don't care how
Don't take my love away, not now!

Kim (Chris)
Oh, Chris, (Oh, Kim)
I can't get free (Please get free)
Still I'm with you (I am with you)
Wait for me (Wait for me)

The Marine Captian
Sorry Sergeant, inside the Embassy!
We are pulling out now and there will be
No more reprives

A Vietnamese
I got till the old man leaves!

John
Chris, don't be a schmuck -
Th' Ambassador is leaving now

A Vietnamese
Take me with you
Take my children

Another
I have a letter from...!

Another
I helped the C.I.A.!

Crowd
They'll kill who they find here!
Don't leave us behind here!

A Vietnamese
I've a wife who left already

Another
I've an aunt in New York!

Another
I have gold, I can pay!

Crowd
There is no one left to find here!
They have left us all behind here!

Kim
I must get in there - Listen, anyone!
Please tell my husband... Look, I have his gun!

A Vietnamese
Out of my way, if that's all you've got

Crowd
If I am here when they come, I'll be shot!

A Vietnamese
Let me go, John,
I can't leave her
Why in the world should I be saved
Instead of her!

Crowd
They'll kill who they find here
Don't leave us behind here!

John
It's not you
It's war that cruel
And if some dreams get smashed
Perhaps it's best if they were

Crowd and Kim
There is no one to find here!
They have left us behind here!

John
Wake up, my friend
Your mercy trip has failed
There's nothing you can do,
That ship has sailed
She's not the only one
We'll have betrayed

Crowd
Get to the roof,
Or else we are betrayed!

Kim
Oh Chris -
I still believe!
The heart of you
Is here with me
My heart against all odds,
Holds still
