  • DAI BAC RU DEM
  • GIA TAI CUA ME
  • NGUOI CON GAI VIETNAM DA VANG
  • "Gia Tai Cua Me" (A Mother's Heritage), by the late-Trinh Cong Son, Viet Nam. Translated by Rich Fuller


    A thousand years of Chinese reign.
    A hundred years of French domain.
    Twenty years fighting brothers each day,
    A mother's fate, left for her child,
    A mother's fate, a land defiled.
    A thousand years of Chinese reign.
    A hundred years of French domain.
    Twenty years fighting brothers each day,
    A mother's fate, bones left to dry,
    And graves that fill a mountain high.

    Refrain:
    Teach your children to speak their minds.
    Don't let them forget their kind--
    Never forget their kind, from old Viet land.
    Mother wait for your kids to come home,
    Kids who now so far away roam.
    Children of one father, be reconciled.

    A thousand years of Chinese reign.
    A hundred years of French domain.
    Twenty years fighting brothers each day.
    A mother's fate, our fields so dead,
    And rows of homes in flames so red.

    A thousand years of Chinese reign.
    A hundred years of French domain.
    Twenty years fighting brothers each day.
    A mother's fate, her kids' misdeeds,
    Her kids filled with disloyalty.

    (Refrain)


    Mot ngan nam no le giac Tau,
    Mot tram nam do ho giac Tay,
    Hai muoi nam noi chien tung ngay.
    Gia tai cua me de lai cho con.
    Gia tai cua me la nuoc Viet buon.
    Mot ngan nam no le giac Tau,
    Mot tram nam do ho giac Tay,
    Hai muoi nam noi chien tung ngay.
    Gia tai cua me mot rung xuong kho.
    Gia tai cua me mot nui day mo.

    Refrain:
    Day cho con tieng noi that tha.
    Me mong con cho quen mau da,

    Me trong con mau buoc ve nha.
    Me mong con lu con duong xa.
    Oi lu con cung cha quen han thu.

    Mot ngan nam no le giac Tau,
    Mot tram nam do ho giac Tay,
    Hai muoi nam noi chien tung ngay.
    Gia tai cua me ruong dong kho khan.
    Gia tai cua me nha chay tung hang.

    Mot ngan nam no le giac Tau,
    Mot tram nam do ho giac Tay,
    Hai muoi nam noi chien tung ngay.
    Gia tai cua me mot bon lai cang.
    Gia tai cua me mot lu boi tinh.
