The Lyrics

US F-16s flee from Flankers at 20 miles range. US panics and is now sending over some F-22s from the 199th FS. A good match up, but the Flanker with Russian pilot has the edge in radar and missile tech plus more advanced aerodynamic capability. Indian Su-30s have already defeated US and British warplanes in mock combat. Germany beat the F-22 as well in Alaska mock combat using the Typhoon. Next move would be for Russia to send Su-35s.
Look out! Here comes the Flanker
Can't afford for something to go wrong
F-16s in N Syria were a blunder
Fled the scene when the Flankers came along!

Prop up Assad Russia is schemin'
With MiGs and plenty of Sukhois too
Putin scarcely gave a warning
That the Flankers might actually shoot!

Raptors coming, so unfriendly
Yeah, the Gen 5 F-22
Hoping to gain air superiority
But the Flankers have their sights on you!

Russians not impressed, the skies THEY rule.
Note: The OS is also known as the Carol Burnett Sign-Off Song...

I loved The Carol Burnett Show back in the '70s. Remember her Tarzan yell and her questions from the audience sessions? Classic!
