The Lyrics

So much has been written about the German V-2 missile that I can't go over everything in this box. But basically 5200 were made and used to attack targets in Britain and Belgium + 11 at the Remagen bridge (which helped it collapse when the Ar-234 jet bombers hit it). They were more of a nuisance than a military strategic weapon due to lack of precision accuracy. But unlike the V-1, it could not be intercepted by fighters nor shot down with AAA using proximity fuses. In the lyrics I mention Mach 3, but that was only the climb to altitude. It fell at Mach 6 (4500 mph)! That helped when the 2145 lbs of Amatol exploded, shattering entire neighborhoods and striking fear. Latter V-2s were mobile and even train-launched! Another version recently declassified was the D-2 which was a radiological carrier version. 5 were built at Leese but destroyed with no radilogical packages delivered (German had 2 radiological spheres under construction at Ohrdruf). ONE V-2 was caught in the air by chance as it was launched from a forest and destroyed, but that is another story!!!
Guess mine is not the first house burning
Some still stand which is a surprise
What a shocking blow
One ton of Amatol explodes!

This new weapon is meant for killing
Nothing the RAF can do
It‘s coming, at Mach three
Over the V-1 it’s improved
A recently exploded V-2!!!

And now there's nowhere to hide
But we must go on-survive
London filled with dread
Recently exploded V-2!!!
Recently exploded V-2!!!
Recently exploded V-2!!!

Churchill is stressing, "Our invasion"
Dowding is stating, "Accurate? No,
BC will get them"
Still, see the damage that they do
A recently exploded V-2!!!

And now there's nowhere to hide
But we must go on-survive
London filled with dread
Recently exploded V-2!!!
Recently exploded V-2!!!
Recently exploded V-2!!!
