North and South

Lt. Lockhart:
The Tet holiday's like the Fourth of July, Christmas and New Year all rolled into one. Every zipperhead in Nam, North and South, will be banging gongs, barking at the moon and visiting his dead relatives.

They say the same thing every year.
There's a lot of talk about it.
Don't lose any sleep over it.
The Tet holiday is like July Fourth,
Christmas and New Year in one.
Every zipperhead in the North and South,
will bang gongs...
...and bark at the moon.
Ann-Margret and entourage
are due next week.
I want someone to stick
with her for a few days.
Rafterman, you take it.
Get some good low-angle stuff.
Don't be obvious, but I want to see fur
and early morning dew.
"Diplomats in Dungarees. Marine
engineers rebuild Dong Phuc villages...."
Chili, if we move Vietnamese,
they are evacuees.
If they come to us to be evacuated,
they are refugees.
