The Lyrics

A parody of Am I Right's favorite song about Herr Arndt's favorite subject: Edelweiss - name for the Kampfgrschweder 51 which was a division of the Luftwaffe known as Edelweiss. Hundred and First Airborne - American army paratroopers who parachuted into France on D day and overran Berchtesgaden. My uncle was one of them. Marlene Dietrich - German born entertainer who sided with the allies.
As sung by Marlene Dietrich

Sie sind nicht blumen.
(Auf Englisch, bitte )
They are not flowers
They don't smell sweet
They fly like vultures
They're packing heat
Dropping bombs all over London
And flying over France
But they're not gonna win the war
We'll kick their pants.

Removes bracelet, places it on piano.

The Edelweiss
The Edelweiss
Easter eggs from You Know Who
The Messerschmidt
Drops piles of (blip)
That's not very nice to do
Uncle Sam is after you.

Removes skirt, folds it and places it on piano.

They flew on the sly
As they caught our eye
We could see on our radar they were flying high
But we're ready for them if we see them at dawn
We'll get Fart Pants Adolf 'till his "panzers" fall down.

Pulls on battle fatigues

The One O One
The One O One
You bet Hitler's moustache
Through Normandy they'll rout Germany
And we're not just talking trash
Where our mouth is we have cash.

Straps on parachute.

La la la la
La la la la
La la la Loosers!

Boards airplane. Stands in doorway.

The One O One
The One O One
Has a surprise, no lie
Many Screaming Eagles have boquets of flowers on board
They'll be popping out all over the sky
Adolf doesn't have a clue
We've just begun to fly.

Plane takes off.

Interesting comments, but the Edelweiss was more popularly known in WW2 as the symbol for German Mountain Troops and of course in 1940 up until Crete the Germans made good use of their paras taught by Kurt Student over France and the Low Countries. Later, they made impressive ground forces that fought in N Africa, Italy (Cassino), and Greece, among other places. The SS used paras in June 1944 to seize Marshall Tito but he escaped!

Nice ww II era parody

KG 51 was not "a division of the LW"- you need to improve your definition, but simply a Bomber Unit (lit. Battle Wing 51) that used the Edelweiss symbol. It flew in many places, but ended-up being broken up, some converting to the Me-410 heavy fighter and others to Fw-190s and Me-262s for Defense of the Reich missions...

Danke schoen, Herr Arndt - I know my info isn't as comprehensive as yours. Thanks, AFW - I don't usually like to dwell on that but sometimes I get on a roll. Thanks, John - glad you enjoyed in spite of the OS.
