The Fall Of Saigon Lyrics


by . From Miss Saigon.


(KIM overwhelmed at the prospect of finally being reunited with CHRIS,
recalls the horrifying moments when they were seperated during The Fall of Saigon)

[AN OFFICER]
Sorry, Sergeant, we must accelerate
State department says we evacuate
The word is, we must be out
By dawn

[CHRIS]
I have to get my girl!

[ANOTHER OFFICER]
Sorry, Sergent, it's sraight from
Washington
No one leaves the grounds now, not
Anyone
A fast as we load the planes
We're gone

[CHRIS]
(But my girl is in there!)

(A huge CROWD OF VIETNAMESE is pushing at the Embassy gates.)

[A MARINE CAPTAIN]
(to the crowd)

Okay! Keep quiet! Don't shout!
The Ambassador won't leave till
Everyone's out
The choppers're on there way there's
Room for you all

[ANOTHER MARINE]
They're climbing over the wall!
(GET BACK!)

[MORE MARINES]
Get Back! Tell you, don't shout!
The Ambassador won't leave till
Everyone's out

[A MARINE]
(entering)

Th' Ambassador just sent an order to
Freeze

[THE MARINE CAPTAIN]
That's it! No more Vietnamese!
Get in!

[CHRIS]
But my girl's out there!

(In the street outside the Embasst, KIM can't get through the grounds)

[KIM]
I'm the wife of a soldier
Oh please let me through
Help me, who must I pay?
Tell me what I must do

[CHRIS]
(To an OFFICER)

Let me out, I got to
Go back for my bride

[KIM]
Listen someone! My husband
Is waiting inside


[CHRIS]
(telephoning, inside the Embassy yard)

Please Kim, hear the phone!
I can't get there
Please be home

[KIM]
(in the street)

Please Chris, no one sees!
I am lost here
Find me please!

[BOTH]
Please, get me through - I don't care
How
Don't take my love away, Not now!

[KIM]
Oh Chris,

[CHRIS]
Oh Kim,

[KIM]
I can't get free

[CHRIS]
Please get free

[KIM] [CHRIS]
Still I'm with you I am with you
Wait for Wait for me

[THE MARINE CAPTAIN]
(to CHRIS)

Sorry Sergent, inside the Embassy!
We are pulling out now and there will
Be
No more reprives

[CHRIS]
I got till the old man leaves

(CHRIS is forced inside the Ebassy, whose doors are then barricaded
The VIETNAMESE are now yelling through the Ebassy gates)

[ONE VIETNAMESE]
Take me with you!
Take my children

[ANOTHER]
I have a letter from...!

[ANOTHER]
I helped the C.I.A.!

[CROWD]
They'll kill who they find here!
Don't leave us behind here!

[A VIETNAMESE]
I've a wife who left already

[ANOTHER]
I've an aunt in New York!

[ANOTHER]
I have gold, I can pay!

[CROWD]
There is no one to find here!
They have left us behind here!

(KIM has pushed her way through the gate)

[KIM]
I must get in there - Listen, anyone!
Please tell my husband...look, I have
his gun!

[A VIETNAMESE]
Out of my way, if that's all you've
got

[CROWD]
If I am here when they come, I'll be shot!

(Inside the compound: MARINES guard the roof
helipad)

[CHRIS]
Let me go John,
I can't leave her
Why in the world should I be saved
Instead of her?

[CROWD]
They'll kill who they find here
Don't leave us behind here!

[JOHN]
It's not you
It's war that's cruel
And if some dreams get smashed
Perhaps it's best they were

[CROWD] and [KIM]
There is no one to find here!
They have left us behind here!

[JOHN]
Wake up, my friend
Your mercy trip has failed
There's nothing you can do,
That ship has sailed
She's not the only one we'll have
Betrayed

[CROWD]
Get to the roof, or els we are betrayed!

(The CROWD tries to vatter down the fences)

[KIM]
(in the yard)

Oh Chris-
I still believe!
The heart of you
Is here with me
My heart, against all odds,
Holds Still

(On the Embassy roof, the last helicopter lands,
CHRIS runs up and down the wall, shouting for KIM.
Finally he is forced to board the helicopter
- which takes off. The nightmare passes - KIM is in her little room with TAM)
