The Lyrics

This was actually a collab between me and a friend of mine who goes by the pseudonym Mfaizsyahmi. He initially wrote the lyrics in response to a Downfall parodist's announcement of a new awards ceremony on the Downfall Parodies forum as a counter to what seemed to be an autocratic and biased contest in which a certain parodist won back to back without any regard to her merit (or lack thereof). I later suggested changes to the content to make it easier to sing, which resulted in this parody.

The parody does contain some inside jokes, so anyone who's not that familiar with the concepts of the Downfall Parodies universe might not easily catch the references.
[Verse 1]
A strong mighty union of lulzy Youtubers
The Fegeleins together forever to stand.
The will of the people will always be present
Be free in our spoofing
Der Untergangers!*

[CHORUS]
Our hero Fegelein!**
Long live the antic men
Spoofs of the movie, and lulz for the folks
Laugh at Der Untergang, pastiched by the Gangers' hands
May from it ROFLs and ROFLs be had!

Through claims by the media***, the Fair Use have saved us
We're led by the great HRP**** to the way
Inspired by our Fegelein, to ruin the bunker
To be more creative and make parodies

[CHORUS]
Glorious, our Fegelein!
Lulz for the Internets
Spoofs of the movie, and lulz for the folks
Laugh at Der Untergang, pastiched by the Gangers' hands
May from it ROFLs and ROFLs be had!

[Verse 3]
We'll use Sony Vegas, disputed the claimants
and thrusted the movie to memehood of fame
Our laughs will expand on a myriad of canons
From Stalin to Kittredge and all in between*****

[CHORUS]
Glorious, our Fegelein!
Lulz for the Internets
Spoofs of the movie, and lulz for the folks
Laugh at Der Untergang, pastiched by the Gangers' hands
May from it ROFLs and ROFLs be had!
* - Untergangers refer to fans of Downfall who make parodies of it as a hobby on YouTube.
** - Hermann Fegelein was a Waffen-SS general in Nazi Germany. His depiction in Downfall started a meme wherein he was portrayed as a prankster.
*** - Like in most parodies, Downfall spoofs have been targets of DMCA takedowns and automatic detection by YouTube.
**** - Hitler Rants Parodies, a prolific YouTuber known for making the most parodies under a single user's portfolio.
***** - The meme has since been expanded by other users to include parody depictions of other films, even going so far as to juxtaposing footage from media with little or no connections to Downfall's subject matter.

Hitler's rant, retitled, is often quite funny. Took me a while to figure out what you were writing about. Very unusual topic.

Well, I don't usually write community in-jokes as songs, but pretty much everyone who watched the film or the parodies can relate to it. More so if you're one of them Untergangers like myself.
