The Lyrics

The OSS T-13 Beano was a spherical baseball shaped grenade used in WW2 mainly at Normandy. It weighed 12 oz and the theory was that since young men were familiar with baseballs growing up in the US, that any American soldier could throw one with ease and accuracy. It didn't work out that way. The grenade was flawed badly. The arming device and pins didn't work out as planned, so pre-detonations occurred often. More troops killed and maimed by the T-13 than by Germans opposing them! Made by Eastman Kodak. Dropped.
Grenade was an OSS flop
Shaped like a baseball for gain
All that was missing was a glove
And Beano was its name (the T-13)

(Chorus)
Not a hit
Was crazy, Yanks dropped it
It was Beano, it pre-fired
Killed some soldiers
Damn! Used the Beano under fire!
Widow-maker!

OSS weapons were despised
Quality was always sad
Lunatic fringe, often dumb
Made the operators mad
Bad!

(Chorus)

Beano

(Chorus)

Weighed a mere 12 oz
Designed from US baseball fame
Cap and arming pins wrong
Beano killed and maimed
Sad...

(Chorus)

Beano was its name

Was crazy, Yanks dropped it
[x4]
Late war Germans moved from stick, to egg, to disc grenades made of Nipolit caseless material.

Believe it or not, the US Army came up with a football grenade for Vietnam which was ungainly and unstable!

I think the British take the cake with their sticky grenade of WW2 ;-)
