(Harris) 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
