I was surprised – thought I didn’t see you?
Intrepid warriors – the battlefield
Still laughing – not dismayed
Still volunteering – in the fire of the enemy’s bullets
What’s wrong – the mundane youth?
Walking through the forest in the morning – sleeping in the mountains at night
You guys – a few short years
When graduating from school – attach the pan strap on the shoulder (1)
However, still drinking alcohol – handing over
While fighting the enemy – drinking white wine
I’m also lucky – being a heavy artillery gunner
Let us call you “Teacher”
I go to Tien Sat – my heart is as light as a cloud
The sound of “Teacher” we call – it’s not polite
Because in the past – I was also a “Teacher”
White chalk – blackboard with students
See you again in a foreign land – so sad
There are old people – there are children who come to worship Buddha
Living in a land of people – tickled heart – tickled
Let’s meet – happy to raise a cup of spicy wine
Miss the scene – love the country – wide month – long day
Only know how to pray – Southern people suffer less
There is a sun and moon moon – why is your heart not “Enlightened”?
Still wondering – about home country??
Alpha – the rank of Warrant Officer.
