XMas in Vietnam


Un appello dal Vietnam per una tregua di Natale, come nella prima guerra mondiale che duri perĂ² non trenta giorni ma almeno trent'anni.
The news is out tonight we're gonna stop the fight,
we're gonna have a cease-fire in the war!
Thirty hours is a start,
Hey Lyndon have a heart!
and make it thirty years or even more! more! more!
and make it thirty years or even more!

Just imagine Christmas day when kids come out to ply
Why the kids in Vietnam'll have a ball;
they'll be laughing in Da Nang
and up around Hai-phong
Their little backs won't be against the wall, wall, wall
Their little backs won't be against the wall

Long as Christmas is so quiet, why resume the bloody riot?
What's the sense in running up another score?
Is it holier to slay after Christmas fades away?
Then another Christmas and we're still at war,war,war
Then another Christmas and we're still at war.

What I'm saying in this poem is
Bring our soldiers home
And let's not kill our brothers anymore
Thirty hours is a start,hey Lyndon have a heart
And make it thirty years or even more,more,more,
And make it thirty years or even more.
