"Where Eagles Dare" as written by Ron Goodwin and (for Hire)....
We walk the streets at night
We go where eagles dare
They pick up every movement
They pick up every loser
With jaded eyes and features
You think they really care

I ain't no goddamn son of a bitch
You better think about it baby
I ain't no goddamn son of a bitch
You better think about it baby, babe

An omelet of disease awaits your noontime meal
Her mouth of germicide seducing all your glands

I ain't no goddamn son of a bitch
You better think about it baby
I ain't no goddamn son of a bitch
You better think about it baby, babe

Let's test your threshold of pain
Let's see how long you last
That's happened in your rape
On bosoms of your past

With jaded eyes and features
You think they really care
Let's go where eagles dare
We'll go where eagles dare

I ain't no goddamn son of a bitch
You better think about it baby
I ain't no goddamn son of a bitch
You better think about it baby
I ain't no goddamn son of a bitch
You better think about it baby
I ain't no goddamn son of a bitch
You better think about it baby, hey

    General CommentWhile it's possible the song does not take it's name from the movie - given Danzig's repertoire it seems only logical that it does - particularly given the age of the movie. However, i have seen this movie (which is an excellent WWII flick) and it offer absolutely NO help whatsoever for decoding Danzig's esoteric and always intriguing lyrics. Though, in the movie they have to reach a Nazi fortress which is extremely dangerous to get to, and be inside of - now if this is some whore, or whores that Glenn is talking about - you ask me and their "omelet of disease" sounds pretty damn dangerous to be inside of.

    What an awesome piece of lyrical imagery though, huh?

    Song Meaning"The world is grown so bad, that wrens make prey where eagles dare not perch."-Shakespeare

    The term Where Eagles Dare existed long before the movie. Wrens are timid birds in the quote, hunting in a place where Eagles (birds of prey) are scared to hunt.

    The song tells the story of a dangerous street where average men go to temp fate and meet prostitutes. It is presented in a "fly on the wall style" by someone just passing through to see the sights on an adventure. To go where "Eagles Dare".

    We walk the streets at night
    We go where eagles dare
    They pick up every movement
    They pick up every loser
    With jaded eyes and features
    You think they really care

    (Our narrator comes for the danger, while men come seeking jaded women who are in it for the money not the love.)

    I ain't no goddamn son of a bitch
    You better think about it baby
    I ain't no goddamn son of a bitch
    You better think about it baby, babe
    (An argument heard on the street between a hooker and a pimp or a John. "You better think about it baby" the women are under threat of violence for such harsh words.

    An omelet of disease awaits your noontime meal (Old droopy breasts are referred to as "fried eggs")
    Her mouth of germicide seducing all your glands (the women rinse their mouths with germicide between dates)

    Let's test your threshold of pain
    Let's see how long you last
    That's happened in your rape
    On bosoms of your past
    (A cruel John wants to push a woman sexually, as he believes a woman such as her must have been raped in her past and be used to such treatment)

    General CommentThis song is the best ever tune to play mentally during those teenage summers you can't STOP getting kicked out of the house.
    I know there were plenty of good reasons but this tune helped me feel justified and triumphant while shattering lamps and being beaten with a rake.
    Fuck right! Good times great tunes...yeah!

    General Commenti heard the chorus (i aint no goddamn son of a bitch...) was retaliation to some critic who called danzig a goddamn son of a bitch after he embarrassed him or something during a show. im not really sure if thats true but whatever
