Piece of Mind (1983)

"Where Eagles Dare" is a song by Iron Maiden, written by bassist Steve Harris. It is the first track from the 1983 studio album Piece of Mind.


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
