IRON MAIDEN - The Trooper Lyrics

You'll take my life but I'll take yours tooYou'll fire you musket but I'll run you throughSo when your waiting for the next attackYou'd better stand there's no turning backThe bugle sounds as the charge beginsBut on this battlefield no one winsThe smell of arcrid smoke and horses breathAs you plunge into a certain deathThe horse he sweats with fear we break to runThe mighty roar of the russian gunsAnd as we race towards the human wallThe screams of pain as my comrades fallWe hurdle bodies that lay on the groundAnd the russians fire another roundWe get so near yet so far awayWe won't live to fight another dayWe get so close near enough to fightWhen a russian gets me in his sightsHe pulls the trigger and I feel the blowA burst of rounds take my horse belowAnd as I lay there gazing at the skyMy body's numb and my throat is dryAnd as I lay forgotten and aloneWithout a tear I draw my parting groan
