What happened to the purple heart I sent from war
You drew a peace sign in it and stuck it to the front door
I'm so confused

What happened to the uptight woman that I once knew
You're running around now, with flowers in your hair
I'll grow my hair too

Sometimes the way that you love me
Makes me want to go back to Vietnam
The way that you love me
Love forever

Well I met you at the protest rally she dragged me to
You had lost your legs and you have also grown your hair
So burn this flag, son

Sometimes the way that you love me
Makes me want to go back to Vietnam
The way that you love me
Love forever

Your legs are twisted and broke
But you will dance again
Your dreams have gone up in smoke
But you will dance again

Sometimes the way that you love me
Makes me want to go back to Vietnam
The way that you love me
Love forever
Sometimes the way that you love me
Makes me want to go back to Vietnam
The way that you love me
Love forever

Your legs are twisted and broke
But you will dance again
Your dreams have gone up in smoke
But you will dream again
