The Lyrics

The British FV4005 monster tank destroyer with 183 mm gun. Weak armor, large turret, large profile. Built on a Centurion chassis. Two prototyes. Cancelled as unwieldy, inefficient.
[Spoken:]
Mental masturbating, sad
Tank destroyer, odd and few, sad
Never should have been built up, sad
Two duds

[Chorus:]
Massive FV, all wrong, massive thing
Massive FV, mounted a 183 (mm)
Massive FV, 54 tons, armor weak
Massive FV, poor Centurion tweaked

Mechanized loader first to fall
First turret wasn't big enough, y'all
Second turret too tall for the day
Big target, they built it anyway

Meteor engine by chance
650 HP at its best
Armor front, rear, sides too
14mm would never protect the crew

[Chorus]

On the field, suicide
Support for Mediums already tried
Better as a Self-Propelled Gun
Tank Destroyer? Try the JagdChieftain!!!

Such a big waste of time
Built the second by 1955
Unwieldy, inefficient, broken
By '57 was cancelled, not promoted

[Chorus, repeat]

Bad timing, time to build better MBTs [repeat 3 times]

[Spoken:]
FVDE debating, yeah, yeah
Turretless affair, Brit-German contemplating
Other FVs to consider too
4005 was obviously doomed, yet no despair
Sad, sad
All wrong, concept was flawed

[Chorus]

183 (mm) was a monster gun
Turret too slow to get it spun
Blocky turret gave it away
Would get "brewed up" right away

[Chorus, repeat and fade]

(A wasteful thing, tank museum it sits rotting)
[in background]

Surely "Everybody" has been parodied many times before, but thanks! Please note that the gun is pronounced here as One-Eight-Three and that the photo at bottom is of the Stage 1 without turret (looking like a SPG)!
