Please and thank you
(Vietnam blues)

I can't ask anymore

I don't want

I don't need

Just a pain pill maybe and a guitar

But even the pills are getting old

Old as me

I can't ask anymore

Not for a job

Not for money

Not for a favor

I know how people become homeless

Their American pride kicks in

You put your life on the line

For your country

Your family

Your dreams

And all you get is

Please and thank you

No thanks
