"Where Eagles Dare" as written by and Stephen Percy Harris....
It's snowing outside the rumbling sound
Of engines roar in the night.
The mission is near the confident men
Are waiting to drop from the sky.

The Blizzard goes on but still they must fly
No one should go where eagles dare.

Bavarian alps that lay all around
They seem to stare from below.
The enemy lines a long time passed
Are lying deep in the snow.

Into the night they fall through the sky
No one should fly where eagles dare.

They're closing in the fortress is near
It's standing high in the sky.
The cable car's the only way in
It's really impossible to climb.

They make their way but maybe too late
They've got to try to save the day.

The panicking cries the roaring of guns
Are echoing all around the valley.
The mission complete they make to escape
Away from the Eagles Nest.

They dared to go where no one would try
They chose to fly where eagles dare.

    General CommentFozzy's version was like it came out of an ass clown. (A phrase used by one of the band's members, Chris Jericho.)

    General CommentThis song is great, the drums at the beginning are a perfect intro. It is about the book, but it has nothing to do with killing hitler, or with a nuclear bomb as MonkeywrenchTactics said. Just read the book, it's GREAT.

    General CommentI believe that Blizzard the video game company did a spoof of this because in Warcraft 3 Reign of Chaos there's a mission called Where Wyverns Dare and u use wyverns to travel over mountains and such.
