Part I: What I've Learned

It takes warrior to kill 50 men,
It takes a gentleman to apologize,
And on the way to meet my Filipino son
Well I’m going to celebrate the war we've won.

I'm in the finest army I’m a working man,
Dropping bombs all over northern Vietnam,
Cambodia I got a backup plan,
This is what I've learned from war in Vietnam

I’d love to see the red sun rising in Japan,
Recall the glory days of dying like a man
With every death is born a brand new life,
Master of doublespeak make everything all right.

I'm in the finest army I’m a working man,
Dropping bombs all over northern Vietnam,
Cambodia I got a backup plan,
This is what I've learned from war in Vietnam

I'm in the finest army I’m a working man,
Dropping bombs all over northern Vietnam,
Cambodia I got a backup plan,
This is what I've learned from war in Vietnam

Baghdad it's all you, Tehran I want you, Kabul I call you,
Tight squeeze in the middle of a jail cell,

Don’t think that I forgot our friends in Mexico,
Or down in Nicaragua or right here up at home,
It’s just that lately I've been ever so busy,
Plotting out targets for the next 10 to 15.

I'm in the finest army I’m a working man,
Dropping bombs all over northern Vietnam,
Cambodia I got a backup plan,
This is what I've learned from war in Vietnam

I'm in the finest army I’m a working man,
Dropping bombs all over northern Vietnam,
Cambodia I got a backup plan,
This is what I've learned from war in Vietnam

Baghdad it’s all you, Tehran I want you, Kabul I call you,
Tight squeeze in the middle of a jail cell!
