The Lyrics

During Operation Queen, on Nov 16, 1944, 467 RAF bombers hit Julich and it's outskirts. Bombs hit tons of sugar beets stockpiled and caused it to rain beets on Julich!
[Chorus:]
The beets rained down, the beets rained down
RAF pounding
Halifax and Lancaster supreme
Sticks were falling free, to hit the ground

Germans were about to be engaged, oh yeah
Part of the vast aerial campaign, oh yeah
Tons of sugar beets were there sitting, oh yeah
Bomb blast turned them into flying veggies splitting, oh yeah

[Chorus]

Julich was basically torn apart, oh yeah
Crimson beet juice stained all of the parts, oh yeah
Such an odd thing that happened in the war
Hitler, who drank beet juice, was real sore!

[Chorus]

Light flak took some down, but largely missed
Julich was pummeled by an iron fist
Sugar beets sat there to be refined
German cursed "Verdammt!!!"
raised their fists up high...

[Chorus]
