Snoopy Vs The Red Baron    (1966)

After the turn of the century
In the clear blue skies over Germany
Came a roar and a thunder man had never heard
Like the screaming sound of a big war bird

Up in the sky, a man in a plane
Baron von Richthofen was his name
Eighty men tried, and eighty men died
Now they're buried together in the countryside

Ten, twenty, thirty, forty, fifty or more
The Bloody Red Baron was running up the score
Eighty men died trying to end that spree
Of the Bloody Red Baron of Germany

In the nick of time, a hero arose
A funny-looking dog with a big black nose
He flew into the sky to seek revenge
But the Baron shot him down; "Curses, foiled again!"

Ten, twenty, thirty, forty, fifty or more
The Bloody Red Baron was running up the score
Eighty men died trying to end that spree
Of the Bloody Red Baron of Germany

Now Snoopy swore he'd get that man
So he asked the Great Pumpkin for a new battle plan
He challenged the German to a real dogfight
While the Baron was laughing, he got him in his sight

The Bloody Red Baron was in a fix
He tried everything but he'd run out of tricks
Snoopy fired once and he fired twice
And the Bloody Red Baron went spinning out of sight

Ten, twenty, thirty, forty, fifty or more
The Bloody Red Baron was running up the score
Eighty men died trying to end that spree
Of the Bloody Red Baron of Germany

Ten, twenty, thirty, forty, fifty or more
The Bloody Red Baron was running up the score
Eighty men died trying to end that spree
Of the Bloody Red Baron of Germany
