Snoopy vs. the Red Baron – video and lyrics

Snoopy vs. the Red Baron

Snoopy vs. the Red Baron. For all you people in Rio Linda, the Red Baron was a real WWI flying ace credited with 80 kills. Snoopy was not one of them.

Anybody remember this song? (video and lyrics below)

I love the guy on the left yelling out something in German at the very beginning of the song.  Don’t know what he’s saying, but it sounds cool!

The Royal Guardsmen came from Ocala, Florida.  The lead singer on the video is Barry Winslow, who is now a Christian singer (testimony here).


Lyrics:  Snoopy vs. the Red Baron

After the turn of the century
In the clear blue skies over Germany
Came a roar and a thunder men had never heard
Like the screamin’ 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 on the countryside

Ten, twenty, thirty, forty, fifty or more
The Bloody Red Baron was rollin’ up a score
Eighty men died tryin’ 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!”


Now, Snoopy had sworn that 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 sights

That Bloody Red Baron was in a fix
He’d tried everything, but he’d run out of tricks
Snoopy fired once, and he fired twice
And that Bloody Red Baron went spinning out of sight

(chorus, to fade)

    ibAdam - YouTube in World War I? says:

    […] If people had Youtube during World War I, they would post a wide assortment of videos. First, there would be videos of the war. The atomic bomb footage would go viral. There may be professionals out taking videos and posting them, and perhaps the Red Baron final flight could have been found just by typing the keyword “red”. The world would be able to see many of the terrors from the Great War. Image Source: http://www.fletcherarmstrongblog.com/snoopy-vs-the-red-baron-video-and-lyrics/ […]
