  • DAI BAC RU DEM
  • GIA TAI CUA ME
  • NGUOI CON GAI VIETNAM DA VANG
  • "Dai Bac Ru Dem" (Lullaby of the Artillery), by the late-Trinh Cong Son, Viet Nam. Translated by Rich Fuller


    Night after night fall shells t'wards town;
    A sweeper stops her broom to hear.
    As shells do fly, a mother wakes,
    As shells do fly, a child's soft cry.
    Bright flares burst open above the mountains.
    Night after night fall shells t'wards town;
    A sweeper stops her broom to hear.
    Each round's dark trip, a child in fright.
    A shelter hit--O! Horrid sight!
    Each night keeps flashing the face of our land.

    REFRAIN: O! Tons of bombs fall on the gate.
    The bombs like rain fall on our fields.
    A house burns red at the end of the lane.
    Grenades, claymores the trucks haul down.
    Such endless stores they bring through town.
    Our mothers' bones lie everywhere.

    Night after night fall shells t'wards town;
    A sweeper stops her broom to hear.
    Night after night, the future quakes,
    As shells like empty prayers repeat.
    A child half-living each night waits listening.

    Night after night fall shells t'wards town;
    A sweeper stops her broom to hear.
    Each night, the rounds, they sing for us,
    Familiar sounds, like sad refrains.
    What child will ever see home again? (3 times,fading)
