  • Song Lyrics:
    Achtung!
    Jetzt wir singen zusammen die Geschichte Über den schweinköpfigen Hund Und den lieben Red Baron


    After the turn of the century
    In the clear blue skies over Germany
    Came a roar and a thunder men had never heard
    Like the screamin’ sound of a big war bird

    Eins, zwei, drei, vier...

    Up in the sky, a man in a plane
    Baron Von Richthofen was his name
    Eighty men tried, and eighty men died
    Now they’re buried together on the countryside

    Ten, twenty, thirty, forty, fifty or more
    The bloody Red Baron was rollin’ up the score
    Eighty men died trying to end that spree
    Of the bloody Red Baron of Germany

    Left, two, three, four...

    In the nick of time, a hero arose
    A funny looking dog with a big black nose
    He flew into the sky to seek revenge
    But the Baron shot him down - “Curses, foiled again!”

    Ten, twenty, thirty, forty, fifty or more
    The bloody Red Baron was rollin’ up the score
    Eighty men died trying to end that spree
    Of the bloody Red Baron of Germany

    Now Snoopy had sworn that he’d get that man
    So he asked the Great Pumpkin for a new battle plan
    He challenged the German to a real dogfight
    While the Baron was laughin’, he got him in his sights

    That bloody Red Baron was in a fix
    He’d tried everything, but he’d run out of tricks
    Snoopy fired once, and he fired twice
    And the bloody Red Baron went spinning out of sight

    Ten, twenty, thirty, forty, fifty or more
    The bloody Red Baron was rollin’ up the score
    Eighty men died trying to end that spree
    Of the bloody Red Baron of Germany

    Ten, twenty, thirty, forty, fifty or more
    The bloody Red Baron was rollin’ up the score
    Eighty men died trying to end that spree
    Of the bloody Red Baron of Germany

    It was played on MMS-79. The link to it is on this song page. The song is the last song in the last segment.

    (revision-) No downloads now. Legal trouble. Only streaming audio.
