"Hail To England" as written by and Joey Demaio....
Raise sails head for the open sea.
With sails full of wind - our hearts
Overflow with belief.

The guest for the grail to England
We sail, with our steel. We
Bring what was lost. If
Lives are the cost, let it be.

Strong she stands - reaching her
Hand. Brave and grand. On English
Ground - we were born. Proudly
We return. - To English shore

Hail, hail, hail.

We march from the hills
Down to London Town. -
Join Raise your hand - or hide
When we ride for the crown.

The sign of the hammer and
The black winds blow through
The night. Long was our wait
Our meeting with Fate is tonight.

Strong she stands - reaching her
Hand. Brave and grand. On English
Ground - we were born. Proudly
We return. - To English shore

Hail, hail to England -
Hail, hail, hail.

Standing tall - one and all -
Light the hall. -

Years have passed - I've dreamed
of this day.
As we raise our hands - we
proudly say.

Hail, hail to England -
Hail, hail, hail.

    General CommentThis is a song about Hitlers and the rest of nazi germany's thoughts on an invasion of the british isles.

    "Years have passed - I've dreamed
    of this day.
    As we raise our hands - we
    proudly say.

    Hail, hail to England -
    Hail, hail, hail."

    They have for a long time dreamt of the invasion, so they raise their arms in a Hitler-salute and proudly say Heil heil heil! to England.

    derfekirc = wrong, but at least he thinks
    It's about the Manowar's dream to go to England, and show them their unique musical style, and hope to become more popular in the UK as they were in America, this they acheived. And they decided to become a Brittish band due to their immense popularity in Europe.

    General CommentGothzilla's correct. "On English
    Ground - we were born." Manowar, all Americans, were founded in England.

    General Commentdodaren was obviously joking, and everyone who takes him seriously is a fool.

    Anyway, with this song Manowar obviously express their respect for England. That respect rests on several reasons:

    1) England is the birthplace of Heavy Metal.
    2) Manowar was founded in England.

    So, yeah. Basically, Manowar go to England and unite the heavy metal fans.
