John Lee Hooker - Simply The Truth
Sittin' down here thinkin',
I don't wanna go to Vietnam
I'm sittin' down here thinkin',
I don't wanna go to Vietnam
I have all these troubles at home,
I don't wanna go to Vietnam
I read the news every day,
I read about Vietnam
I read the news every day,
I read about Vietnam
I got so much friends in Vietnam,
I might not never see them no more
Sittin' here thinkin',
I don't wanna go to Vietnam
Sittin' here thinkin' thinkin' thinkin',
I don't wanna go to Vietnam
You men in the street have so much trouble of their own,
why they wanna fight in Vietnam
Have mercy...
Lord have mercy, don't let me go to Vietnam
Lord have mercy, Lord have mercy,
don't let me go to Vietnam
I have my wife and my family,
I don't wanna go to Vietnam
We got so much trouble at home,
we don't need to go to Vietnam
Yeah yeah there's a whole lot of trouble
right here at home,
don't need to go to Vietnam
We oughta stay at home, stay out of trouble
I don't wanna go
I don't wanna go... Vietnam...

Traduzione letterale in italiano
NON VOGLIO ANDARE IN VIETNAM

Seduto qui pensando,
non voglio andare in Vietnam
Sono seduto qui pensando,
non voglio andare in Vietnam
Ho tutti questi guai a casa,
non voglio andare in Vietnam
Leggo le notizie ogni giorno,
leggo del Vietnam
Leggo le notizie ogni giorno,
leggo del Vietnam
Ho così tanti amici in Vietnam,
potrei non rivederli più
Seduto qui pensando,
non voglio andare in Vietnam
Seduto qui pensando pensando pensando,
non voglio andare in Vietnam
Gli uomini nella strada hanno così tanti guai per conto loro,
perché vogliono combattere in Vietnam
Abbi pietà...
Signore abbi pietà, non lasciarmi andare in Vietnam,
Signore abbi pietà, Signore abbi pietà,
non lasciarmi andare in Vietnam
Ho mia moglie e la mia famiglia,
non voglio andare in Vietnam
Abbiamo così tanti guai a casa,
non abbiamo bisogno di andare in Vietnam
Sì sì ci sono un sacco di guai
proprio qui a casa,
non c'è bisogno di andare in Vietnam
Dobbiamo stare a casa, stare fuori dai guai
Non voglio andare...
Non voglio andare... Vietnam...
