The Lyrics

The Tiger I (Mark 6A) of WW2 was an awesome machine produced in not high enough numbers to stop the deluge of Allied armor on both fronts but nevertheless scored high- 8:1 against all opponents. It took a huge toll of Allied armor due to its powerful 88mm KwK 36 L/36 main gun backed by 2x 7.92mm MG-34s and with 4" of frontal armor protection and 3.5" of side armor. More than anything else, the Tiger's weakness was not its tracks nor rear-end armor but neglect with the powerplant and transmission for its 56 ton weight. It also suffered from late-war fuel shortages and Allied air attack by T-bolts, Typhoons, and Tempests with 6" rockets and bombs. 1354 were produced from July '42- August '44. The Mark 6A gave way to the VIB Konigstiger (King Tiger). Both Tigers could engage at up to 2000m standard and up to an amazing 4000m! Most Western tanks were junk except for the Sherman Firefly with the 17 Pdr and some Soviet armor (T-34/85, KVs, and Is-1 and 2)... but the Western tanks had to shoot at almost point-blank range to score anything and the better Soviet tanks within 1000m to be effective. the Tigers simply outranged them and when hit had better armor protection, making them almost invunerable. But they lacked numbers and were subject to transport attacks, having to move by night and fight by day during the last year of the war. At Kursk they were outnumbered more than 2 to 1 and still made progress until the T-34/76s started to ram them under Stalin's orders to stop them at all cost! Still, no one that ever encountered either Tiger will ever forget it!
Tiger strikes again
Kwk 36 L/56 wins
88 (mm) gun, 2k meters, destroys again
Yet Allies still cross borders w/o end

Tiger strikes again
Puttin’ strain on its Maybach engine
56 tons, 4” of armor protection
Yet armor still crosses borders w/o end

Tiger strikes again
Fightin’ for four years West/East Europe all the way
Reich is at its end
Movin’ at night and fightin’ in the day
Hell to pay, dealing with the Russians

Kwk 36 L/56 wins
88 (mm) gun, 2k meters, destroys again
Yet Allies still cross borders w/o end
