Sink the Bismarck

Johnny Horton

Written by Tillman Franks and Johnny Horton

<martial drum rolls>

In May of nineteen forty-one the war had just begun

The Germans had the biggest ship that had the biggest guns

The Bismark was the fastest ship that ever sailed the seas

On her deck were guns as big as steers and shells as big as trees

Out of the cold and foggy night came the British ship the Hood

And ev'ry British seaman, he knew and understood

They had to sink the Bismark, the terror of the sea

Stop those guns as big as steers and those shells as big as trees

We'll find that German battleship that's makin' such a fuss

We gotta sink the Bismark ;cause the world depends on us

Hit the decks a-runnin' boys and spin those guns around

When we find the Bismark we gotta cut her down

The Hood found the Bismark and on that fatal day

The Bismark started firin' fifteen miles away

"We gotta sink the Bismark" was the battle sound

But when the smoke had cleared away, the mighty Hood went down

For six long days and weary nights they tried to find her trail

Churchill

Churchill%20Life.jpg told the people "Put ev'ry ship a-sail

'Cause somewhere on that ocean I know she's gotta be

We gotta sink the Bismark to the bottom of the sea"

We'll find that German battleship that's makin' such a fuss

We gotta sink the Bismark ;cause the world depends on us

Hit the decks a-runnin' boys and spin those guns around

When we find the Bismark we gotta cut her down

The fog was gone the seventh day and they saw the mornin' sun

Ten hours away from homeland the Bismark made its run

The admiral of the British fleet said "Turn those bows around

We found that German battleship and we're gonna cut her down"

The British guns were aimed and the shells were comin' fast

The first shell hit the Bismark, they knew she couldn't last

That mighty German battleship is just a memory

"Sink the Bismark" was the battle cry that shook the seven seas

We found that German battleship was makin' such a fuss

We had to sink the Bismark 'cause the world depends on us

We hit the deck a-runnin' and we spun those guns around

Yeah, we found the mighty Bismark and then we cut her down
