The Trooper (Live|1998 Remastered Version) - Iron Maiden (鐵娘子)

Written by:Steve Harris

You'll take my life but I'll take yours too


You'll fire your musket but I'll run you through

So when you're waiting for the next attack

You'd better stand there's no turning back

The bugle sounds and the charge begins


But on this battlefield no one wins


The smell of acrid smoke and horses breath


As I plunge on into certain death


Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh


All right


The horse he sweats with fear we break to run


The mighty roar of the Russian guns

And as we race towards the human wall


The screams of pain as my comrades fall

We hurdle bodies that lay on the ground


And the Russians fire another round


We get so near yet so far away

We won't live to fight another day

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh


We get so close near enough to fight


When a Russian gets me in his sights


He pulls the trigger and I feel the blow


A burst of rounds take my horse below

And as I lay there gazing at the sky

My body's numb and my throat is dry

And as I lay forgotten and alone


Without a tear I draw my parting groan

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
