The Lyrics

The Northrop P-61 Black Widow was a mediocre nightfighter that took until 1944 to deploy. It shot down a paltry number of German aircraft in the ETO plus 9 V-1s. It had no effect in the MTO nor India-Burma theater. In the PTO it was effective against Japanese fighters and bombers, but no big score. It also performed some odd duties listed below. Data; 3 seater, 2x Double Wasp radials @ 2000 hp, speed of 365 mph, typical range 940 miles, ceiling of 41,000', and armed with 4x 20mm M-2 cannon plus a barbette with 4x .50 cal MGs. Four pylons for 4000 lbs of ordinance. SCR-720 search radar. 706 produced. One ace...
The Northrop nightfighter sure was odd
Black Widow it was known
W-I-D-O-W
W-I-D-O-W
W-I-D-O-W
Black Widow it was known

From '44 it performed dual jobs
Black Widow it was known
(clap)-I-D-O-W
(clap)-I-D-O-W
(clap)-I-D-O-W
Black Widow it was known

Nightfighter with strike fighter mods
Black Widow it was known
(clap)-(clap)-D-O-W
(clap)-(clap)-D-O-W
(clap)-(clap)-D-O-W
Black Widow it was known

The nine V-1 kills earned it a nod
Black Widow it was known
(clap)-(clap)-(clap)-O-W
(clap)-(clap)-(clap)-O-W
(clap)-(clap)-(clap)-O-W
Black Widow it was known

Cabanatuan raid saved poor sods
Black Widow it was known
(clap)-(clap)-(clap)-(clap)-W
(clap)-(clap)-(clap)-(clap)-W
(clap)-(clap)-(clap)-(clap)-W
Black Widow it was known

Ki-44 kill it was robbed
Black Widow it was known
(clap)-(clap)-(clap)-(clap)-(clap)
(clap)-(clap)-(clap)-(clap)-(clap)
(clap)-(clap)-(clap)-(clap)-(clap)
Black Widow missions flown...
In the January 1945 Cabanatuan prison raid it performed acrobatic maneuvers to distract Japanese guards as the Rangers attacked and liberated 500 prisoners. The Ki-44 fighter pilot denied the P-61 a kill on August 15, 1945 by diving for the ocean and killing himself. A Black Widow also destroyed a B-29 after the crew bailed to prevent capture of the aircraft's sensitive equipment.

The movie version of the the Cabanatuan raid showed it as a night engagement, no P-61. Not sure if any are still flying. Didn't a few end up as fire-fighters after the war?

The movie plane for The Great Raid" was a Lockheed Hudson, and yeah both the P-61Bs and F-15s (recon versions) were used for fire fighting post-war.
