There are many different versions and more verses, but this is the version and the verses that I recall from my time in Vietnam ('68).
The Saigon bargirls sing this song
Doo-dah,doo-dah!
The Saigon race track's five miles long
All the goddamn day!

Went to 'nam with a gun and pack
Doo-dah.doo-dah!
Came back home in a body sack
All the goddamn day!

Goin' to fight all night, goin' to fight all day
Bet my money on the NVA
You take the U.S.A.!

One Oh First in a night attack
Doo-dah.doo-dah!
VC hit them from the back
All the goddamn day!

Goin' to fight all night, goin' to fight all day
Bet my money on the NVA
You take the U.S.A.!

First Cav rides in Huey-Ds
Doo-dah.doo-dah!
Flaming balls into the trees
All the goddamn day!

Goin' to fight all night, goin' to fight all day
Bet my money on the NVA
You take the U.S.A.!

Ninth Division's down in the Plain of Reeds
Doo-dah.doo-dah!
Getting hit by mortars and RPGs
All the goddamn day!

Goin' to fight all night, goin' to fight all day
Bet my money on the NVA
You take the U.S.A.!
