  • Song Lyrics:
    Well, hi there, buddy
    Thought I`d drop you a line
    I haven`t seen you
    For a hundred years

    When you get time
    Will you let me know
    If it`s true what a fella hears

    Heard you been leading
    Those campus demonstrations
    You`re as busy as you can be
    If the sit downs, walk outs
    And others aggravate you
    Bet you hardly ever think of me

    Well, I`m on a little
    Vacation in South Vietnam
    And expense paid trip for one
    I got my own little rifle
    And a great uniform
    And a job that must be done

    For it`s sleeping in the jungle
    And ducking real bullets
    And man, it`s a lot of fun
    Wish you were here
    (Wish you were here)
    Wish you were here
    (Wish you were here)

    I heard you let your hair grow
    Til it`s hanging on your shoulders
    And you hardly have time to shave
    Bet the girls all flip
    'Cause you look so fine like
    Something crawled out of a cave

    Heard Uncle Sam
    Done scared you to death
    But you fooled him just in time
    Just stuck a little match
    To your old draft card
    Then you burned up
    A future like mine

    Well, I`m on a little
    Vacation in South Vietnam
    And expense paid trip for one
    I got my own little rifle
    And a great uniform
    And a job that must be done

    For it`s sleeping in the jungle
    And ducking real bullets
    And man, it`s a lot of fun
    Wish you were here
    (Wish you were here)
    Wish you were here
    (Wish you were here)

    Oh, I know you`re not scared
    You`re a real brave guy
    You`re a regular Cassius Clay
    And I know you`da fought
    When the country was young
    But the world`s just different today

    Well, you just stay home
    And leave the fighting to us
    And when the whole
    Durn mess is through
    I`ll put away my rifle
    And the old uniform
    And I`ll come looking for you

    For it`s sleeping in the jungle
    And ducking real bullets
    And man, it`s a lot of fun
    Wish you were here
    (Wish you were here)
    Wish you were here
    (Wish you were here)

    Wish you were here, old pal
    (Wish you were here)
    Wish you were here
    (Wish you were here)
    Wish you were here, little buddy
    (Wish you were here)

    I wanna introduce
    You to them Comms
    (Wish you were here)
    Come on over and we`ll just
    Hold em 'til you get here, okay
    Wish you were here
    (karlap)
