The Lyrics

Out to Atlantic goes HMS Hood
through grey ocean waves she goes
The steam is up and the turbines they howl
to facing the German foes

Out to Atlantic goes HMS Hood
with Prince of Wales on her side
Her crew is alert and they're ready to fight
to duty they all abide

Out to Atlantic goes HMS Hood
her gunners get ready their guns
Soon fifteen-inchers are going to hurl
their payload on the Huns

Out to Atlantic goes HMS Hood
the battle is about to begin
The Bismarck and Prinz E have been spotted
The RN is closing in!

Out to Atlantic goes HMS Hood
She lets her guns to roar
The Germans reply with broadsides wide
Miss... Miss... Miss.. Miss... Miss.. Miss... Score!

Historically correct, and it rhymes and matches the pacing of the original song. Congratulations.

Very well done... loved it, 555!!! Too bad the Germans never had the funds to finish Graf Zeppelin or build the truly mighty H-44 and H-46 Class battleships. Or 300 U-boats at any given time in the N Atlantic that Doenitz sought instead of the 100+ avg...

Rob, fortunately! Otherwise we might well be eating sauerkraut now...

Today must be British History day, with you and Andy Primus. ;) ... re; Rob A's comment, the work of Alan Turing and others at Bletchley Park to break the British and Japanese codes was truly what won the war, though that's not widely known. Check it out some time.

The Reich was also working on jet-powered fighters, which would have made mincemeat of the Allies' propeller-driven planes. 555,

p. s. Do you know the 1960 pop ballad, "Sink the Bismarck!."? There was a hilarious parody of it released, called "We Didn't Sink the Bismarck". If I remember correctly, it started like this:

The war had just begun; the year was 1943
We sailed with Captain Tuna, the chicken of the sea...

(Cultural note; "Chicken of the Sea" is a popular brand of canned tuna in the US, based on tuna being a staple at sea where raising chickens would be rather difficult. :)

"Way back in 1942 or maybe 43 We sailed with Captain Tuna, the Chicken of the Sea We didn't sink the Bismarck, no matter what they say 'cause when we saw the German ship, we sailed the other way". Homer & Jethro, Columbia label, same as Johnny Horton.

"breaking the GERMAN codes" (facepalm), not British, d'oh. (another facepalm)
