    Paul Hardcastle
    In 1965 Vietnam seemed like just another foreign war but it wasn't
    It was different in many ways, as so were tose that did the fighting
    In World War II the average age of the combat soldier was 26
    In Vietnam he was 19
    In-in-in Vietnam he was 19

    The shooting and fighting of the past two weeks continued today
    25 miles west of Saigon
    I really wasn't sure what was going on

    Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
    19, 19, 19, 19

    In Vietnam the combat soldier typically served
    A twelve month tour of duty
    But was exposed to hostile fire almost everyday
    Ni-ni-ni 19, Ni-ni-ni 19

    Hundreds of thousands of men who saw heavy combat
    In Vietnam were arrested since discharge
    Their arrest rate is almost twice that of non-veterans of the same age
    There are no accurate figures of how many of these men
    Have been incarcerated

    But a Veterans Administration study
    Concludes that the greater of vets
    Exposure to combat could more likely affect his chances
    Of being arrested or convicted

    This is one legacy of the Vietnam War

    All those who remember the war
    They won't forget what they've seen
    Destruction of men in their prime
    Whose average was 19

    De-de-destruction
    De-de-destruction
    War, war

    De-de-destruction, wa, wa, war, wa, war, war
    De-de-destruction
    War, war

    After World War II the men came home together on troop ships
    But the Vietnam vet often arrived home within 48 hours of jungle combat
    Perhaps the most dramatic difference between
    World War II and Vietnam was coming home
    None of them received a hero's welcome

    None of them received a heroes welcome, none of them, none of them
    Ne-ne-ne, ne-ne-ne, none of them, none of them, none of them
    None of them received a hero's welcome
    None of them received a hero's welcome

    According to a Veteran's Administration study
    Half of the Vietnam combat veterans suffered from what
    Psychiatrists call
    Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder

    Many vets complain of alienation, rage or guilt
    Some succumb to suicidal thoughts
    Eight to ten years after coming home
    Almost eight hundred thousand men are still fighting the Vietnam War

    De-de-destruction
    Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni19 19
    19, 19, 19, 19
    Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
    19, 19, 19, 19

    When we came back it was different, everybody wants to know
    "How'd it happened to those guys over there?
    There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
    We did what we had to do

    There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
    People wanted us to be ashamed of what it made us
    Dad had no idea what he went to fight and he is now
    All we want to do is come home

    All we want to do is come home
    What did we do it for?
    All we want to do is come home
    Was it worth it

    I've done everything I canAll the people that I see I will never understandIf I find a way to change, if I step into the lightThen I'll never be the same, and it all will fade to whiteEver on and on I continue circlingWith nothing but my hate in a carousel of agony
