I'm sippin' my beer on a bar stool,
Three days out of Vietnam;
This guy who had had one too many
Thought he'd come down on me like a bomb.
I said, look here let me tell ya
Before you try to put me on the floor,
I stepped right up and defended
You guys in an undeclared war.
I'm a Vietnam combat veteran,
But I don't want to fight no more.
So if you will kindly excuse me
I'll just make my way to the door.
I was in Vietnam over two years;
Till I thought I had had enough war.
But when I got home VC was VA
So I fought ‘em for twenty years more.
We all fought for peace but there ain't none
For the vets of the Vietnam war.
Come on, Buddy!
