The Lyrics

This parody concerns the German Junkers Jumo 004B Orkan engines that powered the Me-262 jet fighter in WW2. It is told from the POV of a Blackbird which was the nickname of the maintence crews that wore black overalls that serviced the Me-262 and the engines knowing full well the war was lost. They risked their lives to keep the jet and its 10 hr life engines running. By war's end that operational life was extened to 25 hrs and new models of the Jumo had higher thrust and even afterburning with the E-model of 1945. However, the Blackbird here laments the lack of strategic materials involved and the newer He-162 jet that appeared in April 1945 powered by a single BMW 003 jet engine. There were actually several new jet fighters under construction to be powered by a third engine, the He S 011. Both the Jumo 004 engine and the Me-262 were nicknamed "Turbos". In the end, special circular pilots' badges were being manufactured to distinguish jet pilots from prop-pilots. Pics below of all relevent info...
O-O-4s flow
I maintain the Jumos

O-O-4s flow
I maintain the Jumos

Jumos!
Junkers Jumos!
Junkers
Jumos!
Junkers Jumos!
Blackbirds

When they come to me I am ready
Check the turbines and all synthetic feeds
Maintaining Messerschmitt engines, was trained
Even through the enemy "iron rain"

We’ll bring them down, bring them down, down
Jet fighter is sound, fighter is sound

[Chorus]
Fix Me-262s, I watch the Jumos spool
Because I maintain the Jumos, daily
Fix Me-262s, I watch the Jumos spool
Because I maintain the Jumos, daily

O-O-4s flow
I maintain the Jumos

O-O-4s flow
I maintain the Jumos

Jumos!
Junkers Jumos!
Junkers
Jumos!
Junkers Jumos!
Blackbirds

I couldn’t love a jet so purely
Junkers twin "turbos" send it on its way
Blackbird dedication and loyalty
Keep the engines running night and day

We’ll bring them down, bring them down, down
Jet fighter is sound, fighter is sound

Fix Me-262s, I watch the Jumos spool
Because I maintain the Jumos, daily
Fix Me-262s, I watch the Jumos spool
Because I maintain the Jumos, daily

O-O-4s flow
I maintain the Jumos

O-O-4s flow
I maintain the Jumos

[Bridge]
In the most practicall sense,
We are beyond mere defense
Famed Fuhrer, miserable wretch, has lost his mind
But in the military sense
The air war is so intense
Jumos, so far pass the test,
But materials limit their time

I do adjust you,
But then there's the new He-162
Powered by BMWs,
Jumos are the engines I cling to
I cling to

Fix Me-262s, I watch the Jumos spool
Because I maintain the Jumos, daily
Fix Me-262s, I watch the Jumos spool
Because I maintain the Jumos, daily

O-O-4s flow
I maintain the Jumos

O-O-4s flow
I maintain the Jumos

Jumos!
Junkers Jumos!
Junkers
Jumos!
Junkers Jumos!
Blackbirds
