Farewell, my wistful Saigon bride 
I'm going out to stem the tide 
A tide that never saw the seas 
It flows through jungles, 'round the trees 
Some say it's yellow, some say red 
It will not matter when we're dead 

How many dead men will it take 
To build a dike that will not break? 
How many children must we kill 
Before we make the waves stand still? 
Though miracles come high today 
We have the wherewithal to pay 

It takes them off the streets, you know 
To places they would never go alone 
It gives them useful trades 
The lucky boys are even paid 
Men die to build their Pharaoh's tombs 
And still, and still the teeming wombs 

How many men to conquer Mars?
How many dead to reach the stars?
Farewell, my wistful Saigon bride 
I'm going out to stem the tide 
A tide that never saw the seas 
It flows through jungles, 'round the trees 
Some say it's yellow, some say red 
It will not matter when we're dead
