Charmaine champagne Lyrics

by The Fiery Furnaces

She's gonna get me folked up, fairly beat
She likes a strong Sangaree that shakes
for 12 hours at least
She's gonna get me folked up, fairly beat
And teach me not to get baited with
stage whispers like,
Can anybody turn me on?
I saw a girl last night called Charmaine
Champagne
She wasn't an ex-so and so, not from
Times Square
But she went to Johnny Romero's till it
was too hot to handle
And she's got nothing to show for it; no
money, no love
But she could always tell you the squarest
thing there on the jukebox
She could always sing you the squarest
thing on the jukebox baby
She's gonna get me folked up, fairly beat
She likes a strong Sangaree that shakes
for 12 hours at least
She's gonna get me folked up, fairly beat
And teach me not to get baited with
stage whispers like,
Can anybody turn me on?
I saw that girl again last night called
Charmaine Champagne
I said show me how to make all those
cups and punches
We went to Johnny Romero's till it was
too hot to handle
They said we had to get a quarter pound
of peach leaves on a dry and sunny day
And she showed me the squarest thing
on the jukebox
Then sang me the squarest thing on the
jukebox baby

She's gonna get me folked up, fairly beat
She likes a strong Sangaree that shakes
for 12 hours at least
She's gonna get me folked up, fairly beat
And teach me not to get baited with
stage whispers like,
Can anybody turn me on?

In 1965 Vietnam seemed like just another foreign war but it wasn't
It was different in many ways, as so were tose that did the fighting
In World War II the average age of the combat soldier was 26
In Vietnam he was 19
In-in-in Vietnam he was 19

The shooting and fighting of the past two weeks continued today
25 miles west of Saigon
I really wasn't sure what was going on

Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

In Vietnam the combat soldier typically served
A twelve month tour of duty
But was exposed to hostile fire almost everyday
Ni-ni-ni 19, Ni-ni-ni 19

Hundreds of thousands of men who saw heavy combat
In Vietnam were arrested since discharge
Their arrest rate is almost twice that of non-veterans of the same age
There are no accurate figures of how many of these men
Have been incarcerated

But a Veterans Administration study
Concludes that the greater of vets
Exposure to combat could more likely affect his chances
Of being arrested or convicted

This is one legacy of the Vietnam War

All those who remember the war
They won't forget what they've seen
Destruction of men in their prime
Whose average was 19

De-de-destruction
De-de-destruction
War, war

De-de-destruction, wa, wa, war, wa, war, war
De-de-destruction
War, war

After World War II the men came home together on troop ships
But the Vietnam vet often arrived home within 48 hours of jungle combat
Perhaps the most dramatic difference between
World War II and Vietnam was coming home
None of them received a hero's welcome

None of them received a heroes welcome, none of them, none of them
Ne-ne-ne, ne-ne-ne, none of them, none of them, none of them
None of them received a hero's welcome
None of them received a hero's welcome

According to a Veteran's Administration study
Half of the Vietnam combat veterans suffered from what
Psychiatrists call
Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder

Many vets complain of alienation, rage or guilt
Some succumb to suicidal thoughts
Eight to ten years after coming home
Almost eight hundred thousand men are still fighting the Vietnam War

De-de-destruction
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni19 19
19, 19, 19, 19
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19

When we came back it was different, everybody wants to know
"How'd it happened to those guys over there?
There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
We did what we had to do

There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
People wanted us to be ashamed of what it made us
Dad had no idea what he went to fight and he is now
All we want to do is come home

All we want to do is come home
What did we do it for?
All we want to do is come home
Was it worth it

I've done everything I canAll the people that I see I will never understandIf I find a way to change, if I step into the lightThen I'll never be the same, and it all will fade to whiteEver on and on I continue circlingWith nothing but my hate in a carousel of agony

She told me in the morning she don't feel the same about us in her bones
It seems to me that when I die these words will be written on my stone
