Well, come on all of you big strong men

Uncle Sam needs your help, again

He got himself in a terrible jam

Way down yonder in Vietnam

Put down your books and pick up a gun

We're gonna have a whole lotta fun

And it's 1 - 2 - 3, what are we fightin' for?

Don't ask me I don't give a damn, the next stop is Vietnam

And it's 5 - 6 - 7, open up the pearly gates

Well, there ain't no time to wonder why

whoopee! - we're all gonna die

Now come on Wall Street, don't be slow

Why man, this's war a-go-go

There's plenty good money to be made

Supplyin' the army with the tools of the trade

Just hope and pray that when they drop the bomb

They drop it on the Viet Cong

And it's 1 - 2 - 3, what are we fightin' for?

Don't ask me I don't give a damn, the next stop is Vietnam

And it's 5 - 6 - 7, open up the pearly gates

Well, there ain't no time to wonder why

whoopee! - we're all gonna die

Now come on generals, let's move fast

Your big chance is here at last

At night you go out and get those reds

Cause the only good commie is one that's dead

You know that peace can only be won

When you blow 'em all to kingdom come

And it's 1 - 2 - 3, what are we fightin' for?

Don't ask me I don't give a damn, the next stop is Vietnam

And it's 5 - 6 - 7, open up the pearly gates

Well, there ain't no time to wonder why

whoopee! - we're all gonna die

*Interlude* (verse)

And it's 1 - 2 - 3, what are we fightin' for?

Don't ask me I don't give a damn, the next stop is Vietnam

And it's 5 - 6 - 7, open up the pearly gates

Well, there ain't no time to wonder why

whoopee! - we're all gonna die

Now come on mothers throughout the land

Pack your boys off to Vietnam

Come on fathers, don't hesitate

Send your sons off before it's too late

Be the first one on your block

To have your boy come home in a box

And it's 1 - 2 - 3, what are we fightin' for?

Don't ask me I don't give a damn, the next stop is Vietnam

And it's 5 - 6 - 7, open up the pearly gates

Well, there ain't no time to wonder why

whoopee! - we're all gonna die...
