Where Eagles Dare
Iron Maiden Lyrics


It's snowing outside
The rumbling sound of engines roar in the night
The mission is near
The confident men are waiting to drop from the sky

The blizzard goes on
But still they must fly
No one should go
Where eagles dare

Bavarian alps that lay all around
They seem to stare from below
The enemy lines a long time passed
Are lying deep in the snow

Into the night
They fall through the sky
No one should fly
Where eagles dare

They're closing in the fortress is near
It's standing high in the sky
The cable car's the only way in
It's really impossible to climb

They make their way
But maybe too late
They've got to try
To save the day

The panicking cries
The roaring of guns are echoing all around the valley
The mission complete
They make to escape away from the Eagles Nest

They dared to go
Where no one would try
They chose to fly
Where eagles dare

It's snowing outside, the rumbling sound
Of engines roar in the night
The mission is near, the confident men
Are waiting to drop from the sky

The Blizzard goes on, but still they must fly
No one should go where eagles dare

Bavarian Alps that lay all around
They seem to stare from below
The enemy lines a long time passed
Are lying deep in the snow

Into the night they fall through the sky
No one should fly where eagles dare

Their closing in, the fortress is near
It's standing high in the sky
The cable car's the only way in
It's really impossible to climb

They make their way, but maybe too late
They've got to try to save the day

The panicking cries, the roaring of guns
Are echoing all around the valley
The mission complete, they make to escape
Away from the Eagles Nest

They dared to go where no one would try
They chose to fly where eagles dare

It's snowing outside the rumbling sound
of engines roar in the night,
The mission is near the confident men
are waiting to drop from the sky.

The Blizzard goes on but still they must fly
No one should go where eagles dare.

Bavarian alps that lay all around
they seem to stare from below,
The enemy lines a long time passed
are lying deep in the snow.

Into the night they fall through the sky
No one should fly where eagles dare.

They're closing in the fortress is near
it's standing high in the sky,
The cable car's the only way in
it's really impossible to climb.

They make their way but maybe too late
They've got to try to save the day.

The panicking cries the roaring of guns
are echoing all around the valley,
The mission complete they make to escape
away from the Eagles Nest.

They dared to go where no one would try
they chose to fly where eagles dare.

" Number of the Beast " got my attention.
I threw the needle down on this gem
On my parent's turntable in '83,
Cranked it as far as I could, and...
It was game over.
I was a Maiden fan for life.
Iron Maiden:
Purveyors of REAL history!
With balls.
Class.
Brio.

I bought this album on LP when it came out and was on my way home on a motorbike - I dropped it on the road!! A lorry ran over it!! My heart sank... I ran into busy traffic to retrieve it... the cover had the road surface permanently ingrained into it but the record was totally undamaged.. It just made this album that much more special to me all those years ago. Awesome - UP THE IRONS!

METAL! Dumbass

One of the more underrated Maiden songs. You always hear them play Revelations, Flight of Icarus, and The Trooper. But this is one of my all time favs. Definitely one of their fastest and heaviest songs!
