Misheard Lyrics:
More than 700 enemy troops were killed last week
In access to the portive area
Original Lyrics:
More than 700 enemy troops were killed last week
In that sensitive border area

Story about this misheard lyric by: Mike Mounier

At the computer store I worked at in 1985 the radio was always on in the background, and this song would play all the time ( ≈ twice a day, every day) in the summer of 1985.

Part of the song's lyrics are spoken rather than sung, including the part above, and I could never tell for sure what was being said in the 2nd line above, only that it sounded like what I wrote . . . I surmised that a "portive area" might be a designated area where helicopters picked up injured soldiers and airlifted them to a medical treatment facility, or something. Turns out that while the word "portive" does exist, it doesn't appear in the song.

The Lyrics:
In Vietnam the combat soldier typically served a twelve month tour of duty But was exposed to hostile fire almost everyday Ninininininininininin 19, ninininininininininin 19 Ninininininininininin 19, ninininininininininin 19
In Saigon a U.S. military spokesman said today more than 700 enemy troops Were killed last week in that sensitive border area
Throughout all of South Vietnam the enemy lost a total of 2689 soldiers
In 1985, "19" was a surprise top ten hit, and dance hit at that for artist Paul Hardcastle. A stinging post indictment on the Vietnam War and the fact that the average age of the soldiers/men who were killed were only 19 years old (at the time of that War not old enough to vote, at least not until 1971 when the voting age was lowered to 18 years old). Most of the record is Paul Hardcastle doing a voice over as a TV or radio announcer announcing the "news" about Vietnam with some ladies singing the extended "19" line. Besides the shoutout to the country of Vietnam is a rare shoutout to two places that would have been identified on a map of the 1960's and early 1970's, but don't exist (or with the one not with the name it had at that time). One of the places is the country of South Vietnam and the other is the city of Saigon which is now named, Ho Chi Minh City.
