Ode to DARPA's Spy Blimp

DARPA's Integrated Sensor is Structure (ISIS) High Altitude Airship (HAA) Blimp

"Spy Blimp" Lyrics
(to the tune of "Love Train")

People all over the world (Everybody),
Join hands (Join).
Launch a spy blimp, spy blimp.

People all over the world (All the world, now),
Join hands (Don't hide).
Launch a spy blimp (Don't hide), spy blimp.

The next stop that we make will be soon,
Tell all the folks in Russia and China, too.
Don't you know that it's time to get on board,
And let this blimp keep on spying, spying on you.

Well, well.
People all over the world (You don't need no money),
Join hands (Come on).
Launch a spy blimp, spy blimp (Don't need to picket, come on).

People all over the world (Join in, don't hide from this blimp),
Join in (Don't hide from this blimp, y'all).
Launch a spy blimp (Come on, blimp), spy blimp.

All of you brothers over in Africa,
Tell all the folks in Egypt, and Israel, too.
Please don't mess with this blimp while it's spyin',
'Cause if you mess with it, I feel sorry, sorry for you.

Well,
People all over the world (Sisters and brothers),
Join hands (Join, come on).
Launch a spy blimp (Don't hide from this blimp, y'all), spy blimp (Come on).

People all over the world (Don't need to picket),
Join hands (Come on, don't hide).
Launch a spy blimp, spy blimp.

Spy, let it spy,
Let it spy,
Let it spy.

People, ain't no war,
People all over the world (Love this blimp),
Join in (Don't hide from the blimp).
Launch a spy blimp, spy blimp (Don't hide from the blimp, y'all).

People all over the world (Come on),
Join hands (You can't hide or run, yeah).
Launch a spy blimp, spy blimp (Spyin' above).

People all over the world ('Round the world, y'all),
Join hands (Come on).
Launch a spy blimp, spy blimp.

Not this time, VM. The spy blimp will be robotically piloted and will have 90% fewer Nazis on board!

VikingMoose said...

to be successful, however, wouldn't you want to waste more nazis?

remember the wise words of Indiana Jones:
"Nazis? I hate those guys"

Pro Libertate said...

Ah, but more Nazis mean more exploding blimp.

It's not a blimp, it's an airship!

Wrong! Obviously, you are mistaken, because "Spy Airship" and "Love Train" don't scan at all. Honestly!
