Support our boys in Vietnam,

Support the soldiers fighting for us.

Bring them home alive and well.

It'll make our generals sad, I know,

The generals want to keep fighting.

Bring them home, bring them home.

Bring them home alive and well.

They want to tangle with the foe,

The soldiers want to fight and defeat Vietnam.

Bring them home, bring them home.

Bring them home alive and well.
