I don't really know why I signed up again, two tours of duty in Vietnam, my partner and I made a bet against fear. Who could collect most gooks ears.
Our duty ended and we went back, We took all our ears in a large sack. We counted them out and I shed tears. You know I'd rather have more gooks ears
Well, I had to go back and win that bet, And see them ear holes, that I won't get. I walk away and make them reds pay dear. Napalm coming, frittered red gooks ears, alright
And now I'm back in the U.S.A. and I am happy everyday. And now I have bought a curio shop here. You know what I sell, yeah, what the hell, gooks ears. You know what I sell, yeah, what the hell, gooks ears.
