Here goes nothin'

 

I saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus

 

 

 

I helped Arty targeting a Maus
Spotted him on Komarin last night.
It didn't see me sneak
Through the village to have a peek;
It thought that I was just a bush
Not the M24 Chaffee.
Then, I heard Arty fire on a Maus
From nearby I saw a blinding light;
Oh, what a joy it would have been
If the basecampers had only seen
Arty blowing up a Maus last night.

 

 

 

Happy Holidays Everyone!

Here is my entry.

 

 

'Twas the night before Christmas

 

'Twas the night before Christmas, near the Erlenberg house

Not a vehicle was stirring, not even a Maus;

The artillery was camping by the base with care,

In hopes that the light tanks would not spot them there;

 

The TDs were nestled all snug in their bushes,

With visions of red team lemming train pushes;

And Matilida in her cammo, and Bert near the cap,

Hoping to hit at least one red team chap,

 

When a ways out from spawn there arose such a battle,

Because the red team was just wandering like slow moving cattle

Away to the flank I flew like a flash,

Tore open the Nashorn using high silver Hesh

 

The moon on the breast of the slow falling snow

Gave the lustre of mid-day to the light tanks below,

So what do I see as I crest the hills apex ,

But a miniature French light tank, ELC AMX,

 

With a unicum driver, so lively and slick,

I knew in a moment I must aim real quick.

More rapid than Cheetahs he did try to flank,

While his shots whistled right by me, I blasted his tank;

 

Now, FREEDOM! now, HETZER! now, RIPPER and HELLCAT!

On, COMET! on CROMWELL! on, BORSIG and BAT-CHAT!

Shoot the top of the hatch sticking over the wall!

Now blast away, blast away, ammo rack them all!

 

On Lakeville don’t go through the valley’s swampy terrain

It will slow down your Tiger from letting lead rain

“Hey I have grousers” is the excuse that you use

But if you go through the valley you surely will lose

 

And then in my light tank while scouting Halluf

I was ducking and weaving because I was not bulletproof

I was lighting the reds for my team across the map

Hoping they would kill them before a green teamer capped

 

My tank was decked out in a cool desert cammo

And fully loaded with premium ammo

I juked and I dodged and I circled around back

Hoping to get a shot at the red’s ammo rack

 

The red teamer grew frustrated as I circled his tank

He fired shots at the ground at the sky and sand bank

As I took the last of his health, my eyes they did gleam

That last shell was courtesy of the green team

 

I jumped in my Waffle on Mountain Pass

Hoping to impress RhymeswithN00bs, that pretty young lass

Unfortunately that was something that I did not do

I got one shotted by Violet Viper’s future T92

 

So I watched Youtube videos to improve myself

They were by a tanker named Jingles, a jolly old elf

He explained the do’s and the don’ts of the tanks I might use

After watching these videos, now I can’t lose

 

So I jumped in my tank and let out a yip

Cruising to the front lines for a tank I could clip

My teammates heard me exclaim as I drove out of sight

 

"HAPPY CHRISTMAS TO ALL, AND TO ALL A GOOD-FIGHT!"

Sorry to CanoeTipper and ShackAttack75 for using the same song (I knew it would be the same as someone). I like to make my entry and submit it without looking at others' work first, that way I know I am not using someone else's ideas.

 

Thanks WG for this contest, it is definitely fun!

While it's not originally a song, it's been made into one before. Besides, who says that poetry isn't music lol. 

 

         The Night Before Tankmas
                     
'Twas the night before Tankmas, and all through the house.
Every tank was idling, even the Maus.
The arty was loaded and positioned with care.
In hopes that the OpFor would soon be there.

The heavys weren't moving, but camping instead.
With visions of winning dancing in their heads.
And while me and my platoon killed every red in a snap.              
The greens on our team just sat on the enemy's cap.


Then in my own spawn there arose such a clatter,
That surely the rest of my team would help with the matter.
Away to my base I sped in a flash,

Driving even through buildings on my mad dash.        

The OpFor on the hill and in the city below.
With no one else around on my team,
My mind was blown.          

When what to my amazement should appear! No, wait....that's no my team.
The enemy reinforcements are here!
With a chaffee in cover, boy are they quick, I knew in that moment I was about to get ticked.

My thoughts were now rapid as more enemy's came.
With my dead team in game chat, calling me every dirty name.
"Shoot NOW! Camp! Now turn and run! No, you idiot! You suck! You're a bum!"
It was clear at that moment that my team was dumb.

The match was over and I was apparently a scrub.

 

I sprang to the garage with the hair on my neck still in a bristle. My temper still boiling over like a tea kettle about to whistle.
And then I exclaimed, as I turned off my Xbox for the night. "Happy Tankmas to all! Maybe tomorrow will be a good tanking night!"

"Oh no, a light!",

The arty is loudly screaming,

It is the night,

of the dear arty's doom,

He runs and he hides,

in hills and lakes alike,

But the light appeared,

and has come to show his worth,

No sense of hope,

the arty's done rejoicing,

His track now breaks,

the time has finally come...

"Yaaaaalllll please help me!"

 But he hears no other voices,

oh night divine, oh night,

When arty was gone,

Oh night divine, oh night,

Oh night divine.

*repeat*

 


Never trust the lily pads.

I see there are already a few 12 Days versions already, but I'd already made this one before I even saw this comp (I literally did it to annoy some friends) xD

On the Twelth day of Christmas my true love gave to meeeeee

Twelve burning Lees

Eleven little Stuarts

Ten Leopards scouting

Nine Cruisers cruising

Eight Shermans shooting

Seven Tetrarchs turning

Six Panthers rolling

Fiiiiive Chaaaallllennnngeeeers

Four Panzer fours

Three French FTS

Two Tortoises

Aaaaaaand a Chaffee in a pear tree

 

and I recorded it! (yes I know I said first instead of twelth)

There’s a mask upon my face
I can’t live without
So you won’t recognize me
When I am in the crowd

Don't worry about using the same songs if you have your own take on it!  These are amazing and I wouldn't want someone to be worried about submitting their own version. :)

Sing to the tune of Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer...

 

 

My driver got knocked out by a Chaffee

Speeding down off the lighthouse in the east.

You can say there is no such thing as scout ramming,

But as for me and my gunner, we believe!

 


He'd been eating too much chocolate

And I'd ordered him just to camp

But he'd hung a left on Cliffs

And floored it out the spawn down the ramp

 


When the team found us in the center

And saw our Maus' sorry state

There were tiny holes in our turret

And incriminatin' tread marks down the front plate

 

My driver got knocked out by a Chaffee

Speeding down off the lighthouse in the east.

You can say there is no such thing as scout ramming,

But as for me and my gunner, we believe!

 

Now we're all driving so much slower
Without the Jack of all Trades skill
As commander I've been trying to fill in
But I'm struggling to get us off that middle hill

 

It's not a flank without our driver
It hard as heck to turn the tracks
And the crew just can't help but wonder
Should we use the first aid kit or refund the credits back

 

My driver got knocked out by a Chaffee

Speeding down off the lighthouse in the east.

You can say there is no such thing as scout ramming,

But as for me and my gunner, we believe!


Now the enemy is in our spawn
And the cap is almost filled
And the rest of green team tankers
Still can't believe how my heavy's driver got killed  

 

I've warned all the team and platoon
Better watch out for those scouts!
They should never give a spall liner
To a gamer who drives a light without a doubt!

 

My driver got knocked out by a Chaffee

Speeding down off the lighthouse in the east.

You can say there is no such thing as scout ramming,

But as for me and my gunner, we believe!
