VIetnam song (Woodstock '69)

Country Joe and the Fish

Give me an f, f
Give me a u, u
Give me a c, c
Give me a k, k
Whats that spell?

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 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 aint no time to wonder why
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 come on generals lets move fast, your big chance is here at last
Nite you go out and get those reds cuz the only good commie is one thats dead
You know that peace can only be won, when you blow em all to kingdom come

Listen people I dont know you expect to ever stop the war if you cant sing any better than that
Theres about 300, 000 of you fuc|ers out there
I want you to start singing

Now come on mothers throughout 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
