Iron Maiden – Iron Maiden Lyrics (1980)

1. Prowler

Walking through the city looking oh so pretty
I’ve just got to find my way
See the ladies flashing all their legs and lashes
I’ve just got to find my way

Well you see me crawling through the bushes with it open wide
What you seeing girl?
Can’t you believe that feeling? Can’t you believe it? Can’t you believe your eyes?
It’s the real thing girl

Got me feeling myself and reeling around
Got me talking but feel like walking around

Got me feeling myself and reeling a
Got me talking but nothing’s with me and
Got me feeling myself and reeling around

Walking through the city looking oh so pretty
I’ve just got to find my way
See the ladies flashing all their legs and lashes
I’ve just got to find my way

Well you see me crawling through the bushes with it open wide
What you seeing girl?
Can’t you believe that feeling? Can’t you believe it? Can’t you believe your eyes?
It’s the real thing girl

Got me feeling myself and reeling around
Got me talking but feel like walking around

2. Remember Tomorrow

Unchain the colors before my eyes
Yesterdays sorrows, tomorrows white lies
Scan the horizon, the clouds take me higher
I shall return from out of the fire

Tears for remembrance and tears for joy
Tears for somebody and this lonely boy
Out in the madness, the all seeing eye
Flickers above us to light up the sky

Unchain the colors before my eyes
Yesterdays sorrows, tomorrows white lies
Scan the horizon, the clouds take me higher
I shall return from out of the

Oh! Oh! Oh-yeah!
Oh! Oh! Oh!

3. Running Free

Okey

Just sixteen, a pickup truck
Out of money, out of luck
I’ve got no place to call my own
Hit the gas and here I go

I’m running free yeah, I’m running free
I’m running free yeah, I’m running free

Spent the night in an L.A. jail
And listened to the sirens wail
They ain’t got a thing on me
I’m running wild, I’m running free yeah

I’m running free yeah, I’m running free
I’m running free yeah, I’m running free, get out of my way

I’m running free yeah, I’m running free
I’m running free yeah, I’m running free, free!

Auh!

Puller here at the bottle top
Whiskey, dancing, disco hop
Now all the boys are after me
And that’s the way it’s gonna be, yeah

I’m running free yeah, I’m running free
I’m running free yeah, I’m running free, oh

I’m running free yeah, I’m running free
(I’m running) I’m running free (oh yeah) yeah, (I’m running) I’m running free (uh ye-yeah)
(I’m running) I’m running free (I’m running) yeah, (I’m running) I’m running free
(Uh yeah, running) I’m running free (oh yeah) yeah, (I’m running) I’m running free (yeah)

Auh-auh! Auh-auh!

4. Phantom of the Opera

C’mon yeah

I’ve been looking so long for you, now you won’t get away from my grasp
You’ve been living so long in hiding and hiding behind that false mask
And you know and I know that you ain’t got long now to last
Your looks and your feelings are just the remains of your past

You’re standing in the wings there you wait for the curtain to fall
Knowing the terror and holding you have on us all
Yeah, I know that you’re gonna scratch me and maim me and maul
You know I’m helpless from your mesmerizing cat call

Uh!

Keep your distance, walk away, don’t take his bait
Don’t you stray, don’t fade away
Watch your step, he’s out to get you, come what may
Don’t you stray from the narrow way

I’m running and hiding, in my dreams you’re always there
You’re the phantom of the opera, you’re the devil, you’re just out to scare
You damaged my mind and my soul it just floats through the air
You haunt me, you taunt me, you torture me back at your lair

5. Transylvania

(instrumental)

6. Strange World

The only place where you can dream, living here is not what it seems
Ship of white light in the sky, nobody there to reason why
Here I am, I’m not really there, smiling faces ever so rare
Let’s walk in deepest space, living here just isn’t the place

Oh

Stalks of light come from the ground, when I cry there isn’t a sound
All my feeling’s cannot be held, I’m happy in my new strange world
Shades of green grasses twine, girls drinking plasma wine
A look at love, a dream unfolds, living here you’ll never grow old, oh baby

Don’t you hear me call?
Uh uh uh…

7. Charlotte the Harlot

Giving a swish with your arse in the air, don’t you know what they’re saying?
Charlotte yo’re so refined when you take all the love that they’re giving
Sticking with every man that you find, don’t you know what they’re after?
Charlotte you’ve got your legs in the air, don’t you hear all the laughter?

Charlotte the Harlot show me your legs
Charlotte the Harlot take me to bed
Charlotte the Harlot let me see blood
Charlotte the Harlot let me see love

Taking so many men to your room, don’t you feel no remorse?
You charge them a fiver but it’s only for starters and ten for the main course
And you’ve got no feeling’s, they died long ago, don’t you care who you let in?
And don’t you know you’re breaking the law with the service you’re giving

Charlotte the harlot show me your legs
Charlotte the harlot take me to bed
Charlotte the harlot let me see blood
Charlotte the harlot let me see love

Oh baby, oh-ouh-ouh

There was a time when you left me standing there
Picking up pieces of love off the floor
Well Charlotte you left me alone in there
To make your ends as a bloody whore

Well Charlotte you told me you love me true
Picking up pieces of love yesterday ye-yeah
Well Charlotte you’re draws are off color too
‘Cause you’re making love all day yeah

Ah, ‘cause you’re making yeah
Uh, oh ya
Ah, ‘cause you’re making

Giving a swish with your arse in the air, don’t you know what they’re saying?
Charlotte you’re so refined when you take all the love that they’re giving
Sticking with every man that you find, don’t you know what they’re after?
Charlotte you’ve got your legs in the air, don’t you hear all the laughter?

Charlotte the harlot show me your legs
Charlotte the harlot take me to bed
Charlotte the harlot let me see blood
Charlotte the harlot let me see love

Yeah!

8. Iron Maiden

Oh yeah!

Won’t you come into my room? I wanna show you all my wares
I just want to see your blood, I just want to stand and stare
See the blood begin to flow as it falls upon the floor
Iron Maiden can’t be fought, Iron Maiden can’t be sought

Oh well, wherever, wherever you are
Iron Maiden’s gonna get you, no matter how far
See the blood flow, watching it shed up above my head
Iron Maiden wants you for dead

Won’t you come into my room? I wanna show you all my wares
I just want to see your blood, I just want to stand and stare
See the blood begin to flow as it falls upon the floor
Iron Maiden can’t be fought, Iron Maiden can’t be sought

Oh well, wherever, wherever you are
Iron Maiden’s gonna get you, no matter how far
See the blood flow, watching it shed up above my head
Iron Maiden wants you for dead

Won’t you come into my room? I wanna show you all my wares
I just want to see your blood, I just want to stand and stare
See the blood begin to flow as it falls upon the floor
Iron Maiden can’t be fought, Iron Maiden can’t be sought

Oh well, wherever, wherever you are
Iron Maiden’s gonna get you, no matter how far
See the blood flow, watching it shed up above my head
Iron Maiden wants you for dead

Auh! Auh!
Yeah!
