The Lyrics

A paean to a band that has produced an incredible amount of fantastic music for 25 years. "'Arry" is Steve Harris, who founded Iron Maiden.
I was at school when their music first gave me a thrill
I remember that time when I first heard Run to the Hills

An' it got inside my brain,
And it had me in thrall
So now I'd like to tell you:
"Thank you 'Arry, and 'em all"

I'm saying Thank you 'Arry and 'em all, the whole Maiden crew
Just saying Thank you 'Arry and 'em all, Dave, Janick, too (him, too)

I saw them play live on the 'Piece' tour back in '84
I've seen them at Donington, Leicester and quite a few more

All the times that I seen 'em play,
No I cannot recall
So now I'd like to tell you:
"Thank you 'Arry, and 'em all"

I'm saying Thank you 'Arry and 'em all, the whole Maiden crew
Just saying Thank you 'Arry and 'em all, Adrian, too (him, too)

Caught Somewhere in Time; Heaven can Wait
The Trooper; Wrathchild; Hallowed be thy Name

So many classic songs
That I can't list 'em all
So now I'd like to tell you:
"Thank you 'Arry, and 'em all"

I'm saying Thank you 'Arry and 'em all, the whole Maiden crew
Just saying Thank you 'Arry and 'em all, Nicko, Bruce too (him, too)

That Jack Wilson, he's everywhere!! I am disappointed, when I saw the 'iron maiden' i thought it might be another maggie parody. Oh well, it was well written so 555 even though i know squat about iron maiden

I hadn't thought of that, Laurence: one by Iron Maiden, but both about Iron Maidens (of sorts)... thanks. And Jack got in so quick, it's managed to include his votes in the parody author's page already today. Ah well, Jack be nimble (etc)
