Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

The legendary A-10 Thunderbolt II (aka Warthog)
Ready for any fight
The mean tank-busting type
With GAU*
Hard points for rockets and so much more
CAS and FAC** leading
Oh, the airframe is crude
But it kills armor by the scores

It's a very potent machine
Developed from
A planned Junkers plane***
Battlefield wild
Iraq War fame
Hell's Highway was no chore
Armor tattered and shattered
Spilled enemy blood
Burning hulks and lots of gore

(Chorus)
(Oh-no, here it comes)
Heads up, goons
Gun'll chew you up
(Oh-no, here it comes)
It's a tankbuster
(Oh-no, here it comes)
Watch out, baddies
Mavericks to toss
(Oh-no, here it comes)
It's a tankbuster

Tankbusters are too few
Tornado & Frogfoot too
Multirole plans
Means the F-35 is s new start
Replacement matter
Oh, the Air Force in despair
But the Warthog has left its mark

(Oh-no, here it comes)

(Chorus)

[Explosions so huge]

Ooooooooh
(Oh-no, here it comes)
Here it comes
Watch out, goons
Gun'll chew you up
(Whoa-oh, here it comes)
(Watch out) it's a tankbuster
(Oh-no, here it comes)
(It's a tankbuster)
Ooh, it'll blow sh-t up
(Oh-no, here it comes)
Here it comes, it's a tankbuster
(Oh-no, here it comes)
(Watch out)
Always ready to put up a fight
(Oh-oh, here it comes)
Here it comes
It's a tankbuster
(Oh-no, here it comes
(It's a tankbuster)
The Warthog is wild
(Oh-no, here it comes)
Here it comes
Watch out goons, watch out loons
(Oh-no, here it comes)
Oh, watch out, watch out
Watch out, watch out
(Oh-oh, here it comes)
(F-ck yeah) it's a tankbuster
(Oh-no, here it comes)
(It's a tankbuster)
Rocket pods and guns blazing
(Oh-no, here it comes)
Oh, it's a tankbuster
* GAU-8 30mm cannon
** CAS means Close Air Support and FAC means Forward Air Control
