come on all of you big strong men
Uncle Sam needs your help again
he's got himself in a terrible jam
way down yonder in Vietnam
so put down your books and pick up a gun
we're gonna have a whole lotta fun

and it's one • two • three
what are we fighting for?
don't ask me • I don't give a damn
next stop is Vietnam
and it's five • six • seven
open up the pearly gates
well there ain't no time to wonder why
whoopee! we're all gonna die

come on generals • let's move fast
your big chance has come at last
gotta go out and get those reds
the only good commie is the one that's dead
you know that peace can only be won
when we've blown 'em all to kingdom come

come on Wall Street • don't move slow
why man : this is war au-go-go
there's plenty good money to be made
supplying the army with the tools of the trade
just hope and pray that if they drop the bomb
they drop it on the Viet Cong

come on mothers throughout the land
pack your boys off to Vietnam
come on fathers • don't hesitate
send your sons off before it's too late
you can be the first one on your block
to have your boy come home in a box
