The Lyrics

Postwar until 1956.
(Chorus)
T'was a Time when Messerschmitt made sewing machines
No warplanes went up, up, up
Neither were any shot down, down, down
Just bubble cars and sewing machines
With no time to catch-up
Aviation verboten, shut down, down, down

Luftwaffe not flying around
Factories used plane parts for things on the ground

Just useful machines
T'was a time when Messerschmitt made sewing machines

Took ten years to return to the air
Made helicopters for the Bundeswehr
Formed MBB for aerospace sake
Then DASA, then EADS, Windhund might not be a mistake*

(Chorus)

Luftwaffe not flying around
Factories used plane parts for things on the ground

Just useful machines
T'was a time when Messerschmitt made sewing machines
* Messerschmitt name may be resurrected with new 6th Gen fighter. German starting number 601. Windhund means Greyhound.

Saw a Messerschmitt bubble top at a car show years ago. Entered and exited just like a fighter plane. Europe was full of micro cars in those days due to high taxes and fuel shortages.

Messerschmitt used actual leftover aircraft parts in both the cars and sewing machines. They also built prefabricated houses for Allied troops and workers.

"Rose, there's a Messerschmitt in the kitchen. Clean it up!"
