Ghost Advisors II

Some Yanks went out advising down in southern Viet Nam
While countering Ho's insurgency they encountered the Madame;
It was frequently confusing in the land where plastic flies,
Just which ones were the VC and whom they should advise.

cho: Chieu Hoi! Chi Yi! (rhymes with eye)
     Chost advisors bye and bye.

They built strategic hamlets and they gave out USOM aid,
They convinced the Montagnards that they really had it made,
They defoliated jungles and they pulled up VC rice.
They swatted the mosquitoes and they searched for body lice.

From The Longest Year, Bowen and Fish
