The Fall of Saigon

Miss Saigon
Language: English



[An officer]
Sorry, Sergeant, we must accelerate
State Department says we evacuate
The word is, we must be out
By dawn

[Chris]
I have to get my girl!

[Another officer]
Sorry, Sergeant, it's straight from Washington
No one leaves the grounds now, not
Anyone
As fast as we load the planes
We're gone

[Chris]
But my girl is in there

(A huge crowd is pushing the Embassy gates.)

[A Marine Captain]
(to the crowd)

Okay! Keep quiet! Don't shout!
The Ambassador won't leave till
Everyone's out
The chopper's on their way there's
Room for all of you

[Another Marine]
They're climbing over the wall!
GET BACK!

[More Marines]
Get back! Tell you don't shout!
The Ambassador won't leave till
Everyone's out

[A Marine]
(entering)

The Ambassador just sent an order to
Freeze

[The Marine Captain]
That's it! No more Vietnamese!
Get in!

[Chris]
But my girl's out there!


[Kim]
I'm the wife of a soldier
Oh please let me through
Help me, who must I pay?
Tell me what I must do

[Chris]
(To an Officer)

Let me out, I got to
Go back for my bride

[Kim]
Listen someone! My husband
is waiting inside

[Chris]
(telephoning, inside the Embassy yard)

Please Kim, hear the phone!
I can't get there
Please be home

[Kim]

Please Chris, no one sees!
I am lost here
Find me please!

[Both]
Please get me through - I don't care
How
Don't take my love away, Not now!

[Kim]
Oh Chris,

[Chris]
Oh Kim,

[Kim]
I can't get free

[Chris]
Please get free

[Kim][Chris]
Still I'm with you I am with you
Wait for Wait for me

[The Marine Captain]
(to Chris)

Sorry Sergent, inside the Embassy!
We are pulling out now and there will
Be
No more reprieves

[Chris]
I got till the old man leaves

[One Vietnamese]
Take me with you!
Take my children!

[Another]
I have a letter from...!

[Another]
I helped the C.I.A.!

[Crowd]
They'll kill who they find here!
Don't leave us behind here!

[A Vietnamese]
I have a wife who left already

[Another]
I've an aunt in New York!

[Another]
I have gold, I can pay!

[Crowd]
There is no one to find here!
They have left us behind here!

[Kim]
I must get in there - Listen, anyone!
Please tell my husband...look, I have
his gun!

[A Vietnamese]
Out of my way, if that's all you've got

[Crowd]
If I'm here when they come, I'll be shot!

[Chris]
Let me go John,
I can't leave her
Why in the world should I be saved
Instead of her?

[Crowd]
They'll kill who they find here
Don't leave us behind here!

[John]
It's not you
It's war that's cruel
And if some dreams get smashed
Perhaps it's best they were

[Crowd and Kim]
There is no one to find here!
They have left us behind here!

[John]
Wake up, my friend
Your mercy trip has failed
There's nothing you can do.
That ship has sailed
She's not the only one we'll have
Betrayed

[Crowd]
Get to the roof, or else we are betrayed1

[Kim]
Oh Chris-
I still believe!
The heart of you
Is here with me
My heart, against all odds,
Holds Still
