The Lyrics

Recently declassified documents reveal America's first disc aircraft project working with AVRO Canada. This has nothing to do with the Avrocar GETOL fiasco, but a real attempt to build a jet disc able to reach Mach 4 and 100,000 ft in the late 1950s. Unfortunately, disc aircraft of any type are inherently unstable and so the US gave up by the early '60s. Flying wings and Delta craft are far more promising. Even the German discs would have been hard pressed to fight the aerial hordes of enemy bombers and escorts.
Third Reich had them buried deep
Antigravity big metal beasts
Tesla tech, quantum physics aquired
Exotic tech the Allies desired, but

Discs not handy!
Discs not handy!

Captured tech when war was won
Not understood by West nations
Reverse engineering, too far in the future
Decided upon a simpler jet saucer, but

Discs not handy!
Performance crappy,!
Sad (but true)

AVRO Canada had potential winners
Sought US funds to build them faster
None were stable, took toobmuch time
In the end they were all declined...

[Left that damn GETOL* parked outside]

Discs not handy!
Were too demanding!
Appearance notwithstanding!
And ultimately lacked the funding!!!
* Ground Effect Take-Off and Landing machine Avrocar was designed as flying Jeep. Total failure. The project number was 1794 for the one mentioned.
