Aces High – Iron Maiden

There goes the siren that warns of the air raid
There comes the sound of the guns sending flak
Out for the scramble we’ve got to get airborne
Got to get up for the coming attack
Jump in the cockpit and start up the engines
Remove all the wheel blocks there’s no time to waste
Gathering speed as we head down the runway
Got to get airborne before it’s too late

Running, scrambling, flying
Rolling, turning, diving, doing it again
Running, scrambling, flying
Rolling, turning, diving…

Run, live to fly, fly to live, do or die
Run, live to fly, fly to live, Aces high
(2:09-Solo: Dave Murray)
(2:23-Solo: Adrian Smith)

Move in to fire at the mainstream of bombers
Let of a sharp burst and then turn away
Roll over, spin round to come in behind them
Move to their blind sides and firing again

Bandits at 8 O’clock move in behind us
Ten ME-109’s out of the sun
Ascending and turning our spitfires to face them
Heading straight for them I press down my guns

Rolling, turning, diving
