Among the shadows cast in the night over the city
you’ll find a Vietnam life that is as vibrant as any.
Moving down alleyways narrow streets of byways
Hanoi drums its own beat, a tune you must complete.
Westerners from far and wide bargaining on the side
chatter adding to Hanoi tune a deal will be struck soon.
Tonight as I stood looking across the waters in my mind
a gleaming red bridge brought me back to the present time.
I wonder looking into the warm smiling faces of many locals
you see how hard they work every day without a harsh vocal
So many flood the country because its cheap no need to cheat
paying a third what it cost you at home tip! make it a good song.
