The Lyrics

My 140th Gaga parody! A tribute to one of my favorite British aircraft of WW2- the Hawker Tempest. This began as an improved Typhoon with a heavy, reinforced frame and a new 2366 hp Centaurus engine driving a de Havilland Hydromatic prop. It was equipped with an armored windscreen, bubble canopy, rear cockpit armor, laminar flow elliptical wings, and 4x 20mm Hispano cannons in the wings. it could also carry 2x 500 lb bombs, a single 1000 lb bomb, or 8x 6" rockets (150mm). Used as a V-1 killer the Tempest shot down 638 of them out of over 1700 by the RAF. In ground attack, it hit bridges, tanks, trains, and targets of opportunity. Used primarily post D-Day in the drive over West Europe the Tempest fought the Bf 109, Fw 190, and Me-262. The jets were instructed not to engage escorts but to push the throttle forward to escape. But many a LW pilot attempted to dogfight or outdive a Tempest and lost. A single He-162 jet in April 1945 did dogfight and kill a Tempest as one of the last jet victories in WW2. Even so, 1400 Tempests were built and continued on postwar with the Sabre engine, serving in Europe and the ME.
Go, go, go, go
Fighter-bomber Tempest

Go, go, go, go
Fighter-bomber Tempest

Tempest!
Real fast
Tempest!
Real fast
Tempest!
Real fast
Tempest!
CENTAURUS!

An improved Typhoon, it performed superbly
High hp Centaurus gave it speed
In Europe attacked bridges, tanks, and trains
Even took out V-1s launched across the sea

It shot them down, shot them down, down
Spun their wings around, forced buzz bombs down

[Chorus]
A British killing tool, quad 20s were so cruel
The Allies loved the Tempest, against Jerrys
A British killing tool, quad 20s were so cruel
The Allies loved the Tempest, against Jerrys

Go, go, go, go
Fighter-bomber Tempest

Go, go, go, go
Fighter-bomber Tempest

Tempest!
Real fast
Tempest!
Real fast
Tempest!
Real fast
Tempest!
CENTAURUS!

In the air, handled superbly
Heavy and perfect for jumping its prey
Against the jets it used an easy trick
Deny level speed and force a dive quickly

It shot them down, shot them down, down
Blew their engines out, Messers hit the ground

A British killing tool, quad 20s were so cruel
The Allies loved the Tempest, against Jerrys
A British killing tool, quad 20s were so cruel
The Allies loved the Tempest, against Jerrys

Go, go, go, go
Fighter-bomber Tempest

Go, go, go, go
Fighter-bomber Tempest

Tempest!
Real fast
Tempest!
Real fast
Tempest!
Real fast
Tempest!
CENTAURUS!

[Bridge]
It could fly with the best,
Put the Luftwaffe to test
Fast flyer, took on the jets, and other types
On the ground made a mess
Burning panzers took rockets
8x 6“ worked the best,
Or 500 lb bomb rolls- yikes!!!

Germans hated you,
In April ‘45 a Heinkel jet got you
Postwar still improved,
Sabre version was the new Mk.II
The Mk.II

A British killing tool, quad 20s were so cruel
The Allies loved the Tempest, against Jerrys
A British killing tool, quad 20s were so cruel
The Allies loved the Tempest, against Jerrys

Go, go, go, go
Fighter-bomber Tempest

Go, go, go, go
Fighter-bomber Tempest

Tempest!
Real fast
Tempest!
Real fast
Tempest!
Real fast
Tempest!
CENTAURUS!
