I-Feel-Like-I'm-Fixin'-to-Die Rag Country Joe McDonald
Tekst piosenki i chwyty na gitarę
DCome on all of you big strong men,
GUncle Sam needs your help again.
DHe's got himself in a terrible jam
GWay down yonder in Vietnam
ASo put down your books and pick up a gun,
GWe're gonna have a whole lotta fun. Chorus:
DAnd it's one, two, three,
GWhat are we fighting for?
DDon't ask me, I don't give a damn,
GNext stop is Vietnam;
DAnd it's five, six, seven,
GOpen up the pearly gates,
AWell there ain't no time to wonder why,
GWhoopee! we're all gonna die. 2:
DCome on generals, let's move fast;
GYour big chance has come at last.
DGotta go out and get those reds —
GThe only good commie is the one that's dead
AYou know that peace can only be won
GWhen we've blown 'em all to kingdom come. [Refren] 3:
DCome on Wall Street, don't move slow,
GWhy man, this is war au-go-go.
DThere's plenty good money to be made
GSupplying the Army with the tools of the trade,
AJust hope and pray that if they drop the bomb,
GThey drop it on the Viet Cong. [Refren] 4:
DCome on mothers throughout the land,
GPack your boys off to Vietnam.
DCome on fathers, don't hesitate,
GSend your sons off before it's too late.
AYou can be the first one on your block
GTo have your boy come home in a box. [Refren] Note: As I have mentioned elsewhere I am guilty of leaving out the women in my early material so now I always sing the last verse like this: Come on mothers throughout the land / And pack your boys off to Vietnam / Come on fathers, don't hesitate / and send your DAUGHTERS off before it's too late / And be the first one on your block to have your KIDS come home in a box.
