The Lyrics

First conceived in 1955 as a nuclear bomber, the fighter-bomber F-105 Thunderchief was the largest, heaviest, and loudest warplane of its era which earned its glory from fighting in Vietnam. Of the 830 total production, about 50% (397) were lost in action in fierce attacks against heavily defended N Vietnamese HVTs (High-Value Targets). The name "Thud" came about by the sound they made when they crashed, but they penalized the NVA heavily for any losses and even shot down MiG-17s by the dozens. This aircraft was the main weapon of "Operation Rolling Thunder" from 1965-68. Powered by a single P&W J75 of 26,000 lb st with afterburner the Thud could hit Mach 2.1 at 33,000 ft. It carried 7 tons of ordnance and also could mount AIM-9s for ATA. It also carried a Vulcan cannon for defense. The Thud's greatest target was Hanoi, which at the time was the most heavily defended city on earth with thousands of radar-guided missiles and radar-slaved AA guns in addition to MiGs in the air. The Thuds would drink from a tanker first for max. fuel load to feed the afterburners, approach low hidden by terrain, and then pop up and drop all of their ordnance on bridges, airfields, arms and supply depots, and NVA barracks. After the B-52, the F-105 was the greatest threat to N Vietnam.
T’s for tankers for more fuel to feed
H’s for harms way, Hanoi, naturally
U’s for under fire, MiG-17s did flee,
D’s for destruction, bombs falling through bomb bay doors

Direct hits, the Thud did score!

Thud’s a Thunderchief; fast, loud, and huge,
Thud, 105, harsh airspace it moved through
Tackling MiGs and shot ’em;
NVA targets- it bombed ’em.
Thud’s no dud. . . Mach 2 quick zoom

T’s for targets in territory,
H’s for hunting down enemies
U’s for unleashing tons of lethality;
D’s for devastation, NVA had to endure

The threats couldn't be ignored!

Thud’s a Thunderchief; fast, loud, and huge,
Thud, 105, harsh airspace they moved through
Tackling MiGs and shot ’em;
HVTs did spot ’em then got ’em.
Thud’s no dud. . .”Rolling Thunder” ruled

No... no new series. I used your parody version due to unfamiliarity with OS and your format was easy to duplicate. I have done PoP songs from your work JAB, and AFW, and Porfle, and so on... :)
