Miss Saigon - The Morning of the Dragon Lyrics

Song from Miss Saigon the musical
Miss Saigon
- The Morning of the Dragon Lyrics

(It is three years later. Saigon has been renamed Ho Chi Minh City. A street pageant is
celebrating the glorious victory of North Vietnam and the Third Anniversary of Reunification.)

FIRST GROUP
On silent feet it came
Breathing a sheet of flame, it came
Closing in on its rightful prey
Burning a hundred years away

The morning of the dragon truth lit up the street
The tiger we were stalking walked on paper feet
And in the clear white heat of dawn
Was gone

FIRST GROUP
From every door they came
These children born of war, they came
Sharing a secret word, which they
Waited a hundred years to say

SECOND GROUP
Victory
Victory
Victory

FIRST GROUP
The morning of the dragon truth lit up the street
The tiger we were stalking walked on paper feet
And in the clear white heat of dawn
It's gone

SECOND GROUP
The morning of the dragon all the walls fell down
Brother greeted brother in a sudden light
And in the endless night
Was gone

FIRST GROUP
On silent feet it came
Breathing a sheet of flame, it came
Closing in on its rightful prey
Burning a hundred years away

SECOND GROUP
Victory
Victory
Victory

THIRD GROUP
May all our children learn
The tide of night will turn

FIRST GROUP
The morning of the dragon truth lit up the street
The tiger we were stalking walked on paper feet
And in the clear white heat of dawn
Was gone
