The Lyrics

Quicky on the phenomenal Do-335 Pfeil (Arrow) push-n-pull fighter of 1945 which just narrowly missed the war. With such a long nose it became unofficially known as the "Ameisenbaer" or "Anteater". It also possessed an ejection seat to clear the cruciform tail and was very fast at 477 mph, faster than the Fw Ta 152 that reached 472 mph...
It only flew as prototypes
One of the last German fighter types
But it was new, I've never seen a tandem like that before
Porpoising and snaking,
the Do-335 needed the bugs worked out since late 1944

The Allies would have been surprised to see
A fighter with such incredible speed
Twin DB 603s, 1900 hp each
477 mph
Makes one hell of an interceptor!!!

Oh here it comes
Watch out RAF and USAAF, it'll chew you up
Oh here it comes
It’s the Ameisenbaer (Anteater)
Oh here it comes
Watch out RAF and USAAF, it'll chew you up
Oh here it comes
It’s the Ameisenbaer (Anteater)

It’s best it never flew
Imagine what it could do
It's deadly, and it could really rip your fighter apart
But war production matters
The potential was there, but the beast didn’t see combat

Oh here it comes
Watch out RAF and USAAF, it'll chew you up
Oh here it comes
It’s the Ameisenbaer (Anteater)
Oh here it comes
Watch out RAF and USAAF, it'll chew you up
Oh here it comes
It’s the Ameisenbaer (Anteater)

Oh here it comes
Watch out RAF and USAAF, it'll chew you up
Oh here it comes
It’s the Ameisenbaer (Anteater)
Oh here it comes
Watch out RAF and USAAF, it'll chew you up
Oh here it comes
It’s the Ameisenbaer (Anteater)

Oh here it comes
Watch out RAF and USAAF, it'll chew you up
Oh here it comes

Great Parody of a Great plane, first one I've seen with a propeller on the back too, This anteater really sucked it's way through the air I'm sure! :-)

I had problems with pacing, but sure the PUSH to give you good marks and PULL to sing this song made me give you 355 instead of 335. Sehr gut!

Oh, and besides being a sailor, I am also a private pilot. I really like these high-flying airplane parodies.

Susanna, NP, I have plenty of material to use for more aircraft parodies. I'll eventually get around to a Spit or Stang or Spiteful someday...

*smile* I did a couple of years ago David Bowie's "Heroes" into "Zeros"... wonder if Eagles song "Desperado" would turn into "Hayabusa"? S7oop1d question: Which two famous airplanes are mentioned on Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody"?

P-47 Thunderbolt (aka T-bolt) and P-38 Lightning...

Another airplane possibility: the Christmas Bullet. Only two ever built, both crashed, killing their pilots. A fellow once told me his dad was on a US Navy ship in WWII. A Japanese Kamikaze pilot crashed into the ship, and survived! Ever hear a story like that? Security code for this comment "RC5", as in "Radio Control", I guess.

The German alone have a ton of strange aircraft of both WW1 and WW2. I like weird stuff or controversial stuff. Oddities too like this Blackburn Sidecar: http://www.aviastar.org/pictures/england/black_sidecar.jpg

Robert, yup! Thunderbolts and lightnings, very very frightening me!
