The U.S.A .& Australian governments abandoned their South Vietnamese allies to a fate they'd guaranteed but Hueys brought out family pets happily enough. Some lucky pooch had his name on the right list alright.


So Long Shuffle
Where's the ambassador,
look up into the sky.
He's gone from the roof,
and everybody knows why.
Big Huey takes him and
plucks him from death,
Name not on list?
Well, pal, save your breath.
Just like the old days,
bombs into the Timor Sea,
Public money slides of carriers,
Greetings Land of the Free.
People making Peace signs,
a new wave to ride on,
Hope they can hear me now
back where they come from
It's too bad,
there's a new administration,
Too bad,
someone else controls your nation.
It's too bad,
your trust was all in vain,
You know they didn't even give you a
lift out on the plane.
Napalm lovers plight their troth
and tumble in the fields,
Sow their seeds in the midday sun
and leave before they yield.
Napalm lovers kiss without lips
in someone else's war.
Bourgeois airlift to their ships
waiting for the thaw.
