What did the RAF pilots do for Britain? This song reveals the bravery behind the badge.
Lyrics: We fighter pilots fought the German chaps in World War II In Hurricanes and Spitfires Performed feats of derring-do The finest British pilots that the world could hope to have Binky. Stinky. Squiffy. Franstisek. And Stansislav! Hold fire, is that some foreign chaps risking their necks? That's right, some of the bravest men were Polish and Czech
We like to fire Beating Jerry our one desire Y-e-e-eah! All we do each night is pray We'll live to fight another day Take that, Hitler!
My name is Douglas Bader Let me tell of my ordeal Lost both legs in an accident These ones are not real (They're not real) I left the Air Force after that Flying was a hobby But when war broke in '39 Came back just like Robbie Shot down 22 of them Led the air attack Till finally the Luftwaffle hit me back! Oh no, pretty baby
His plane is on fire Stuck in Colditz Such a shame to retire Ye-e-eah! Never forget this great mans story And his role in Britain's glory
We flew in tough conditions Lucky to survive five missions Not that I'm complaining But I've had just ten hours training Epic dogfights in the sky Outnumbered, that's why We're now known by you as the few... Phew, he missed me! Ooooh, ahhhhh
The Battle of Britain was our pilots' finest hour Although it seemed at first the Germans were the stronger power (Oh, so strong) We mustered all our courage in summer 1940 Scrambled Air Force squadrons to fly sortie after sortie Saw Nazi invasion off just as airmen should Our bravery meant Hitler wouldn't be back for good No, no We beat the Fuhrer Without us frequent flyers Your life would be poorer Ye-e-eah! Britain securer Our stories of heroics will forever endure Wow, yea-e-eah! So I think you'll find its true...
