    SUZY’S BAR AND GRILL

    I met her in a whorehouse in Saigon
    A little place called Suzy’s Bar and Grill
    And I knew I loved her when I saw her
    Those almond eyes just gave my heart a thrill.

    I bought her a dozen little drinkees
    That someone said was “Saigon Tea”
    And she told me "Don't mean nothing."
    "Saigon Tea, Five Hunner P."

    I went to Suzy’s Bar and Grill real often.
    And I was wondering ‘bout my future bride.
    ‘Cause every time I opened up the front door.
    She had some drunken sailor by her side.

    I don’t know what “Saigon Tea” had in it
    But I know my darlin’ loved to drink that stuff.
    And I damn near had to get a dead horse
    ‘Cause my darlin’ just couldn’t get enough.

    I really thought she felt the same way I did
    But she didn’t understand too much, I’d allow.
    And every time I whispered, “Let’s get married”
    She said “Toi Khong Biet, You Dinky Dao.”

    When I asked her what her name was she said “So Mot”
    Which translated out to “Number One.”
    And when I looked into my darlin’s pretty brown eyes
    My heart told me that "So Mot" was the one.

    I wondered if we’d ever get together,
    For she hardly ever said a thing to me.
    Just those little words she spoke so often
    “Honey I ruv you. One more tea?"

    Every day I saw this lovely beauty
    And every day I fell for her some more
    But there was always that damn sailor,
    Every time I walked in through the door.

    She said "No sweat, GI, he just "fren"
    "So Mot" never drink his tea.
    It made me feel a little better
    Knowing she’d only take that stuff from me.

    Then one day I knew she truly loved me
    ‘Cause she let me do the big "boom-boom"
    And afterwards she didn’t even charge me
    She just took a hundred for the room.

    After that I knew that I’d found heaven.
    Hanging out in Suzy’s Bar and Grill.
    Buying “Saigon Tea” all evening
    Wondering if this love was really real.

    Then one day I got there kind of early,
    Hoping she'd be waiting patiently.
    But in she walked with that damn sailor,
    and both of them were talking Vietnamee

    “I love you boo coo,”
    “You love me ti ti.”
    “You buy me tee vee.”
    “I give you vee dee.”

    Well, to make the story shorter,
    I fell out of love real quick.
    'Cause I had to see the medic,
    Things were happening to my ..uhh,

    Well, me and my broken heart and all
    Loaded up for a long, hard trip.
    And Doc shot something in my rear
    That he said should stop the drip.

    Well I know that I ain’t stupid,
    Maybe just a little slow
    But I sure can learn a lesson
    And there’s one thing that I know.

    I ain’t buying no more Saigon Tea
    And I ain’t never getting laid.
    Let them sailors have them honeys.
    (Till I get this dead horse paid.)

    Dreamcatcher,

    Great poem! It tells it like it is...er, was.

    Donna, that's why they call it a SECRET, so you don't go around telling everybody else... (LOL)

    Hey Chief,

    I am pretty sure that this gal moved to Thailand. Have you written any poems about your time at Utapao?
