The Lyrics

A Reisen pilot and his beloved Mitsubishi Type 0...
The IJN answered the call
With her carriers at sea
Mitsubishi A6M2 Zero
Would go down in history

Maneuverability was a plus
Long range, fought furious

Me and my Zero
Coming back to the arrester hook
On to Pearl Harbor for a look
Battleship Row took hits, ships cooked
With Aichi dive bombers, turrets shook
Raw firepower, fish in the water

Me and my Zero
Made to adapt along the way
Still fought the enemy everyday
By late-war met types new
Worse odds as bombings grew

Lost the edge over time
Engine power didn't climb
Tanks not self-sealing
Needed a new redesign
To fight the Allies
What a surprise
Enemies in our skies
B-29s invoked fear...

Me and my Zero
Divine Wind was the new spark
To take the warships apart
So still the Zero flew

Armed for a different kind of war
Bolted in and into the sky soared
Death wasn't something we abhorred
Target up, diving speed
Banzai! Banzai! we all screamed
My Zero and me

Forget Frank
Forget Shinden
It was over
The Rising Sun went down
The Zero was there the entire time
In '40, tops
But the enemy could not be stopped
Two bombs were dropped...

Tiger! Tiger! Tiger! Killed two birds with one post (Arndt being German as such)!
