Sorry About that You're working very hard at MACV, Eighteen hours a day. For three months you've been on a project With no extra pay. You finally turn it in on time, To hear the General say, "The project's cancelled, we don't neeed it Throw that junk away!" cho:(spoken): Sorry about that! You're transferred into the Delta, Hamlets to defend, You reinforce your garrison, For fight to the bitter end; J2 has said VC will Attack tonight the town, Instead by day they hit Na Trang And burn it to the ground. cho:(spoken): Sorry about that! Next day you're patrolling When a lan mine lays you low, A Huey takes you to Saigon Your leg wound up to sew; They wheel you into surgery And of this there is no doubt The dirty carts mixed up the charts They took your appendix out! cho:(spoken): Sorry about that! And then your year is ended Your replacement's here and trained. You're out at Tan Son Nhut, with suitcase Finally to emplane. You're headed up the stairway, When the MPs come for you, To say your tour's just been extended, From one year to two. cho:(spoken): Sorry about that! From The Longest Year, Bowen and Fish Tune: Ghost Riders RG
