In 1965 Vietnam seemed like just another foreign war, but it wasn't
It was different in many ways, as so were those that did the fighting
In World War II the average age of the combat soldier was twenty-six
In Vietnam he was nineteen
In in in in in in in Vietnam he was nineteen
In in in in in in in Vietnam, he was nineteen
In Vietnam, he was nineteen
Na na na na nineteen
The heaviest fighting of the past two weeks
Continued today twenty-five miles northwest of Saigon
I really wasn't sure what was going on
Na na na na nineteen, nineteen
Nineteen, nineteen, nineteen,
In Vietnam the combat soldier typically served a twelve-month tour of duty
But was exposed to hostile fire almost every day
Na na na na na na na na na na na na na nineteen
Na na na na na na na na na na na na na nineteen
Na na na na na na na na na na na na na nineteen
Na na na na na na na na na na na na na nineteen
In Saigon a US military spokesman said today
More than seven hundred enemy troops were killed last week
In that sensitive border area
In all of South Vietnam
The enemy lost a total of two thousand six hundred eighty-nine soldiers
All those who remember the war
They won't forget what they've seen
Destruction of men in their prime
Whose average age was nineteen
De de de de des de de de destruction
de de de de des de de de destruction.
According to a Veteran's Administration study
Half of the Vietnam combat veterans suffered from what psychiatrists call
Post-traumatic stress disorder
Many vets complain of alienation, rage, or guilt
Some succumb to suicidal thoughts
Eight to ten years after coming home
Almost eight-hundred-thousand men
Are still fighting the Vietnam war
None of them received a hero's welcome
Nineteen
Saigon Saigon
Sa Sa Sa Sa Saigon Saigon
Sa Sa Sa Sa Sa Sa Sa Sa Sa Sa Saigon
Nineteen (na na na na na na na na na na na na na nineteen)
(na na na na na na na na na na na na na nineteen)
Nineteen (na na na na na na na na na na na na na nineteen)
(na na na na na na na na na na na na na nineteen)
Vietnam, Sa Sa Saigon
Vietnam, Sa Sa Saigon
Vietnam, Sa Sa Saigon
Vietnam, Sa Sa Saigon
Purple heart, Saigon
Purple heart, Sa Sa Saigon
I wasn't really sure what was going on
I wasn't really sure what was going on
