lyrics

Major Meing he disagreed
With Ho Chi Minh's philosophy
So he joined the Saigon team
They sent him to the South China Sea

Sargent Phuong lived in Saigon
Hated the war that was going on
He got a letter in the mail
Said "Help Major Meing or go to jail."

We make a toast to Sargent Phuong
He fought for right, to put down the wrong

Lieutenant May was brave and bold
Man he liked to run the show
I was a soldier, young and strong
State side duty didn't last long

They sent us to the South China Sea
To support and advise Major Meing
Marble Mountain Team 15
Quong Nam Province infantry

Treeline treeline a cobra will do
six-digit grid a B-52
LZ Baldy Firebase Ross
Find Hawk Hill you'll never get lost

Engage and destroy the enemy
U.S. air and the South's infantry
Man we made quite a team
We put the hurt on the enemy

We make a toast to Sargent Phuong
He fought for right, to put down the wrong

Easter offensive started by the Cong
When the smoke cleared the winner was Saigon
'73 we went home, South Viets were on their own
2 years later Charlie came to town
No U.S. Air, the South went down

Major Meing he got away
Now he lives in West L.A.
Sargent Phuong, well he's all gone
Killed In Action Province Quong Nam

Lieutenant May, he lives in Vegas
Wrote a couple books, he's almost famous
We get together every year
To tell a few jokes, and have a few beers

We make a toast to Sargent Phuong
He fought for right, to put down the wrong

We make a toast to Sargent Phuong
He fought for right, when his friends were gone.
