Cross-post from war_poetry:

The Return of the Red Baron

You remember that baron flying high in the sky
When Snoopy shot him down with a gleam in his eye
But that baron had leaped from his blood-red plane
Just before it burst into a ball of flame

Snoopy circled back to check his kill
Saw the bloody red baron standing high on a hill
Then he swooped down low
Shouted Curse you red baron!
The German shook his fist you could hear him swearin'
(Ach der lieber!)

Hey watch out little Snoopy
You're really in a mess
You thought you were through with the bloody red baron
But it looks like he's not down yet

Then a cry went up all over the land
The bloody red baron would strike again
But brave little Snoopy said Never fear
As he headed for his plane all the people cheered

Snoopy blazed a trail straight across the sea
Searching in vain for his enemy
Then he found that German trying to fix his plane
A-sweatin and a-cussin about to go insane

Snoopy landed for a pistol duel
The baron was worried
Snoopy was cool
He fired a shot and missed
Started to run
Before Snoopy had a chance to raise his gun

Hey watch out red baron
Snoopy is on your trail
One of these days he's gonna make you pay
And you'll go straight to-
Well watch out red baron...

By Phil Gernhard and Rick Holler (1967)
