The Lyrics

Parody of a parody X10! This one describes the Ju-87G Stuka armed with underslung weapons: a ventral SC bomb, 2x 37mm BK 3.7s ATGs, and 2x WB-81 gunpods firing 4800 rpm each, aimed 30o downward!!! An impressive arsenal.
S is for SC bomb ventrally,
L’s for large gunpods; 30 degrees,
U’s for ungainly cannons that kill tanks with ease,
N’s for noise-makers that scream in a dive-bombing spree,
G’s for German lore of Black Bird terror that’s abhorred

Strafes a lot, turns men into gore

Slung are its weapons up to no good,
slung are bombs, cannons- gunpods to boot
Stuka—the infamous dive-bomber of the Luftwaffe
Slung: three weapons aimed at you

S is for a six, gunpod MGs,
L is for large SCs and SDs,
U’s for underneath the wings where the cannons peek,
N’s for numerous targets that the hunter seeks,
G’s for German lore of Rudel’s impressive score

He just went back for more-n-more!

Slung guns took out tanks and quite a few,
slung guns strafed road convoys when in view
Stuka—sure loved to hate it. Targets—they were all hard-hit. . .
Slung guns and a two-man crew

Slung SC bombs that the Stuka threw,
slung BK 3.7s- tanks chewed.
Slung, weapons taken; East-West fronts destruction makin’
Slung WB-81s too

Slung waffen was always used…

Rob - It's a good thing the Luftwaffe never developed much of a strategic bombing capacity. ;D

The long-range strategic bomber died with Wever in 1936; hence, no Ural Bomber or other 4-engine operational with exception of the He-177 that had coupled engines (and caught fire often)! The Me-264 prototypes were bombed and Heinkel's 277 was constantly worked on in secret. Not until late '44 were there a great many plans for jet bombers like the Ju-287 and the new Amerika Bomber- the Horten XVIII under construction. The Germans also had 2 bombers under construction in France- the He-274 and Ju-488. Germany's only jet bomber of WW2, the Ar-234 was used in that role secondary to recon. It did however, finally collapse the Ludendorff Bridge in March 1945. Postwar, many of the Luft '46 bomber designs were made in the US and USSR or borrowed from them various untried configurations of wings and jets. OTOH, Germany took the western continent and all the way to the gates of Moscow with medium bombers and England was hit in 1944-45 with rockets. Had the 15cm HDP guns become operational in '44 they would have rained down 6000 projectiles per hour on S England. But the Lancs with Grand Slams took them out. Two smaller versions (one rail and the other built on a hill) fired at Antwerp from some distance. Same for the V-2s that became mobile. The US could have also been hit by the A-9/A-10 ICBM under construction or the Prufstand XII sea launchers at Stettin, towed by the Type XXI submarine.

You should be the U.S. Secretary of Weaponry

Thanks AFW, but I just had an early start in life with them and learned a lot over 4 decades! I have an excellent memory like my dad, so that helps. But I, like many people who know weapon systems, don't know everything- no one does, not even so-called experts. Btw, the last line in my parody has an error as waffen (weapons) is plural so it should be "Slung waffen _were_ always used" rather than "was always used" (singular). Oops...
