[ Baden Soellingen ]

4 WING Song

CHORUS:

Over the Flugplatz, over the Rhine
Fuel's running short and so is my time,
Show me the runway, lead me home
Back to the base I love.

VERSE 1:

Number one came in to land,
He grasped the throttle in his hand
Orenda 10 refused to run
That's how we lost our number one.

VERSE 2:

Number two was high and hot,
Bags of airspeed he had got,
Touchdown came at GCA
X marks the spot where he died today.

VERSE 3:

Number three was low and slow,
He tried to stretch it but it wouldn't go,
Heard him say as he hit the ground
"Soellingen Tower" I should have gone around.
