Operation Babylift

Turn to channel 7 did you hear what they had to say?
The north had advanced over the weaker defense
Bleeding Sai Gon's chance to stay
Susan says I'm scared for and I love

Not flesh of my flesh nor bone of my bone
But my own, your my own
and there's angels standing by
Tonight, it's gonna be alright

A child given up with all of her love
for new life and a brand new day
she kisses him and says, I'm gonna see you someday
I'm so scared for you, and I love you

Yes, you are the flesh of my flesh
you're the bone of my bone
you're my own, you're my own
and there's angels standing by
Tonight, it's gonna be alright
because i've seen it today

The busy market street where kind people meet
the old and the new, there's always something to do
So she prays,
watching the child play

But there's a girl on the street and she's lying on a sheet
she's given up her right for life
and a tear burns my eye when she says goodnight to a man
he bought her body and soul
the stories told, to the young and the old
that's why I want you to know

A quarter centuries past and i'm looking back
See i'm trying to understand this path i walk upon
and the thanks you'll find
will last for all time, and we can say

Not flesh of my flesh nor bone of my bone
But my own you're my own
and there's angels standing by
Tonight, it's gonna be alright
