Bless 'em All - Wellingtons

Worry me, worry me
Wellingtons don't worry me.
Oil-chewing bastards with flaps on their wings,
Buggered-up pistons and buggered-up rings,
The bomb-load is so fucking small
Four-fifths of five-eighths of fuck-all,
There'll be such a commotion when we're over the ocean
So cheer up my lads, fuck 'em all.

Note: The RAF Wellington bomber (two engines, 4500 pound bomb
 load) was nicknamed Wimpy. It was slow, messy and fuel-hungry,
 but it was all the Brits had in the early stages of the war.
