Listen, that's why I believe that I'm gonna make it (Tell everybody back home) I believe that I'm gonna make it And baby I'll be home before you can say Jackie Robinson (Oh yes I will, yes I will) Sometimes I wonder Do you really love me Then I'll think of something sweet You once said to me And the thought makes me feel So good inside I raise up and get me Two mo' enemies Listen, baby (ooh, oh baby) I wished a thousand times That we had gotten married Before I left home for Vietnam But then when I see so many of my buddies Getting' shot down all around me Makes me kinda glad that we waited Because I don't wanna leave you At home being a widow, no I know you understand, babe Listen darling They promised me a furlough on the fifteenth of next month And I want you to say a prayer tonight That my furlough will come through So I can come home to be with you And tomorrow, oh tomorrow Go by and tell my mom and daddy That I love 'em And for 'em not to worry about me Listen, 'Cause I believe that I'm gonna make it Tell everybody back home I believe that I'm gonna make it And baby I'll be home before you can say Batman and Robin
