The Lyrics

Boeing built a stealth aircraft demonstrator in the early 1960s called "Quiet Bird" (Model 853). It used early RAM and was configured to refect radar by shape. It had canted tails, exhaust forward of the trailing edge, gold-plated canopy, and had a trapezoid fuselage. Tested at Boeing, Witchita. No manned flights. Was doomed due to low performance as a strike aircraft. Most records destroyed in 1970s, but recent pics and some data released. It would later influence the Bird of Prey prototype which was manned.
The Bird, bird, bird, b-bird was unheard
A-well-a, bird, bird, bird, classified, no word
A-well-a, bird, bird, bird, well,concept was absurd
A-well-a, bird, bird, bird, big-Boeing learned
A-well-a, bird, bird, bird, well, in trapezoid form
A-well-a, bird, bird, b-bird's exhaust was forward
A-well-a, bird, bird, bird, big-Boeing learned
A-well-a, bird, bird, bird, well, the bird built by tech nerds
A-well-a, bird, bird, b-bird was unheard
A-well-a, don't you know that it was secured?
Well, nobody knew that the bird was Witchita stored
A-well-a, bird, bird, b-bird was unheard
A-well-a
A-well-a, nobody knew about the bird
Bird, bird, bird, b-bird was unheard
A-well-a, bird, bird, bird, b-bird was secured
A-well-a, bird, bird, bird, b-built by tech nerds
A-well-a, bird, bird, in trapezoid form
A-well-a, bird, bird, bird, b-bird was unheard
A-well-a, bird, bird, bird, b-bird was a stealth sword
A-well-a, bird, bird, bird, s-still mum's the word
A-well-a, bird, bird, bird, for the white-clad herds
A-well-a, don't you know the bird was stored?
Well nobody was talking about the bird
A-well-a, bird, bird, b-bird was unheard
A-well-a, bird
Quiet Bird (M853)
Ssssssssssssssssssss, stealth
Per-per-per-per-per-per-per-per-per-per-per-per-per-per-per-per-formance let down
Performance let down

(Repeat tirelessly then break)

Well, few even remember this bird
Air Force didn't want it 'cause the shape was absurd
A-well-a-well Kennedy shut it down
Records destroyed, thus it wasn't found
At the time a performance let down
Latter Bird of Prey caused some wows, oh, wow!!!

First time I heard of this one. The Lockheed Flying Wing of the 1940's had some radar evading characteristics. Not like the cumbersome B-36. Though I did like the Jimmy Stewart movie. But that plane would have been a sitting duck for any Russian interceptor that could see the contrails from 100 miles away. Just finished watching "The Arrow" with Dan Ackroyd. Sad fate for a marvelous plane.
