One part sad and two parts brave
One part silent and one part says:

To the stars!

One part black and two parts blue
One part wishes the best
Four decades ago a young man left Mississippi
To fight the war in Vietnam...
Did two tours and got shot received the metal of honor
When he got home
Lil Bar Codes
Get It Real Life Arizona By The Cargo
Battle Field Soldier I'm Out Here Till The Box Close

[Chorus]

[Verse 2: Gorilla Zoe]
Spark Plugs,
I Where I'm From That's Why My Mind Gone
World War Ii When I Shoot Get My Grind On
Vietnam War In The Car Glock Nine Home
World War Iii Up In Me
Four decades ago an man left Mississippi
To fight the war in Vietnam 
Did two tours and got shot received the metal of honor
When he got home he
One part sad and two parts brave
One part silent and one part says
To the stars

One part black and two parts blue
One part wishes the best for
the drive-bys double 
'Cause the youth them not go war and go fight with knuckle 
The two sides scuffle
Vietnam not go a war with no more kung-fu nunchacku

And should they, you'd consider that a gain
You bring a lot of trouble to the town and then you leave
That's part of your Communistic game
I
stalk
My man say he was god holdin' the devil's pitchfork
That's why I'm throwin' rhymes like Geronimo's tomahawk

[Verse 2: Jeru]
War, many shout it but
years. 
Their names are engraved permanently on the Vietnam wall.
More than 17 million members of the armed forces perished during world war2. 
1 million,
There was Gemini Jim and Scorpio Sal
They was livin' by the Golden Gate
Freezin' their nose and wearin' leather clothes
And dealin' every way but
over my bed

My Granddaddy fought in World War Two
But my Daddy went to Vietnam
And I ain't scared to grab my gun
And fight for my homeland
If you
[Verse 1]
I remember waking up
Running down a dirt road
Morning dew a shinin', watermelon by the wagon load
Little baby brother and my sisters in
stalk
My man say he was god holdin' the devil's pitchfork
That's why I'm throwin' rhymes like Geronimo's tomahawk

[Verse 2: Jeru]
War, many shout it but
war, not wars,
Make love, not war.
1 - 2 - 3 - 4
We don't want your fucking war.
1 - 2 - 3 - 4
We don't want your fucking war.
1 - 2 - 3 - 4
We
But when I see us now
I really find it strange
How little, how much we've changed

In the years gone by
I guess it's meant to be that way
Jimmy
Down at the corner by a hot-dog stand
I seen a man, I said, 'howdy friend'
I guess there's just us two
He screamed a bit and away he flew
Thought I was
Some time ago a crazy dream came to me,
I dreamt I was walkin' into World War Three,
I went to the doctor the very next day
To see what kinda
too much though
I know I look funny

Down at the corner by a hot-dog stand
I seen a man, I said, "Howdy friend
I guess there's just us two"
He
Yeah
Sendin' this one out, to my man Killa be
No doubt indeed, without weed, know what I'm sayin'?
That old real shi'

There's a war goin' on outside
Manila."

"I have concluded an agreement to end the War and bring peace with honor in Vietnam."

"There's a drive into left center field. That ball is
a Muslim nowadays 
Inside my lab, I'm going mad 
Took two drags off the blunts, and started breaking down the flag 
The blue is for the Crips, the red is
Grove Street walk-up flat
Where dwelt The Calistoga Kid, a beatnik from the past
With long browned lightnin' fingers he takes a cultured toke
And says,
There's a Vietnam Vet with a cardboard sign
Sitting there by the left turn line
The flag on his wheelchair flapping in the breeze
One leg missing
There's a Vietnam Vet with a cardboard sign
Sitting there by the left turn line
The flag on his wheelchair flapping in the breeze
One leg missing
