Malvina Reynolds.
The French have gone and the Yanks have come
Say the Saigon children,
We live in war like our natural home
Say the Saigon children.

The Yankee comes when the French retreats
Say the Saigon children,
We play the game of War in the streets
Say the Saigon children.

You smash and burn, smash and burn
Say the Saigon children,
Viet kids are quick to learn
Say the Saigon children.

"Seek and destroy! Seek and destroy!"
Say the Saigon children,
What a line for a five year boy
Say the Saigon children.

We needed rice and you gave us a stone
Say the Saigon children,
Stone in the hand is easy thrown
Say the Saigon children.

Napalm burns through the forest cover
Say the Saigon children,
A jeep will burn if you turn it over
Say the Saigon children.

Take your PX and leave us alone,
Say the Saigon children,
Vietnam is our natural home
Say the Saigon children.

Are you missing Just a little rain?

No, Holger. See here. The song is included under Joan Baez. Anyway, its right title is "What have they done to the rain". Thanks! [CCG/AWS Staff]
