The Lyrics

No King Tiger was ever penetrated from the frontal aspect during WW2. There exists only one staged shot of an abandoned King Tiger that the Allies tested rounds on- it took a 90mm at point-blank range to penetrate the empty tank. Postwar the Soviets tested 152mm guns to penetrate!!! Most King Tigers were killed by Allied aircraft with rockets and bombs and not by Allied tanks. Most were abandoned when they ran out of ammo or fuel. But the 489 produced killed thousands of enemy tanks but was hopelessly deluged by Allied armor on both fronts.
Greatest German tank yet
The 70 ton Henschel King Tiger
This could be good for the war effort
It’s built for armored warfare

The 88mm will make Allied tanks turn away
With an incredible 4000 meter range
Gott im Himmel!!!
I’ve fallen in love with the Henschel King Tiger

I looked at it massive size
Armor 80-150mm all around
It’ll give the Allies a hell of a surprise
I’ve never seen a tank this strong

To encounter it is to be destroyed
72 rounds carried inside
It destroys enemy armor wherever on the move
T-34s, KV-1s, and IS-2s
They've paid for encounters in blood
And subsequently they all died

The Maybach HL 230 P30 comes to life and roars like many guns
Henschel King Tiger
Roars like many guns
Henschel King Tiger

If they’re smart then they’ll just turn away
But if not, they are within striking range
The 88mm KWK43 L/71 is a killer
Enemy tanks fall to the Henschel King Tiger

An armored column met the King Tiger face-to-face
The Shermans were coming apart all over the place
They had to escape with their tank crews
Before all of their turrets blew!!!

I looked at it massive size
Armor 80-150mm all around
It gave the Allies a hell of a surprise
They’ve never encountered a tank this strong

To kill it requires Allied aircraft rockets and bombs
To kill it requires Allied aircraft rockets and bombs

Not familiar with Madonna's song, but I did learn something about the King Tiger tank. Have you thought about the Blohm & Voss asymmetrical airplane? Or the Fallschirmjäger gravity knife? I wonder if anyone ever used one of those to cut himself out of a tangled parachute.

Only 13 Bv-141 asymmetrical aircraft were built during WW2... but I am way past those oddities, past the jet and rocket a/c, and into the German disc craft and Foo Fighters that are classified (flugscheiben and Phoo Bombs). As for the paratrooper gravity knife, you can get them at almost any auction in town for around $10. I had one once but it was nothing special. The circular Luftwaffe Turbo (jet aircraft) badges are more interesting...

"Beautiful Stranger" is from the movie "Austin Powers, The Spy Who Shagged Me"- the video is in the special features section. FYI

If you run across any real Fallschirmjäger knives for $10, send them to me. I can get you some real money for them.
