Can I Play With Madness (Smith, Dickinson, Harris)

Can I play with madness?

Give me the sense to wonder, to wonder if I'm free
Give me a sense of wonder to know I can be me
Give me the strength to hold my head up, spit back in their face
Don't need no key to unlock this door, gonna break down the walls
Break out of this bad place

Can I play with madness? – the prophet stared at his crystal ball
Can I play with madness? – there's no vision there at all
Can I play with madness? – the prophet looked and he laughed at me
Can I play with madness? – he said you're blind too blind too see

I screamed aloud to the old man I said don't lie don't say you don't know
I say you'll pay for your mischief in this world or the next
Oh and then he fixed me with a freezing glance and the hell fires raged in his eyes
He said do you want to know the truth son – I'll tell you the truth
Your soul's gonna burn in a lake of fire

Can I play with madness? – the prophet stared at his crystal ball
Can I play with madness? – there's no vision there at all
Can I play with madness? – the prophet looked and he laughed at me
Can I play with madness? – he said you're blind too blind too see

Oh listen to me, said the prophet

Can I play with madness? – the prophet stared at his crystal ball
Can I play with madness? – there's no vision there at all
Can I play with madness? – the prophet looked and he laughed at me
Can I play with madness? – he said you're blind too blind too see

Can I play with madness?

Black Bart Blues (Harris, Dickinson)

Bruce: What the fuck is that?

Groupie: Hi guys, are you in a band or something? I mean it would be so cool if you were in a band 'cause you're driving a big bus with band on the front of it.

Bruce: Why don't you shut up and get on board will ya?

Groupie: Wow! I have it here you got a stereo and a microwave and, and you got a beer, I'd like a Heineken if you've got one that's real cool, that's great, yeah!

Bruce: Would you like to see Black Bart?

Groupie: Who's Black Bart?

Bruce: Let me introduce you...

Black Bart's seen it, Black Bart knows
Black Bart's done it the, Black Bart blues
Suspenders and suspension, medieval (k)nights in Tennessee... and elsewhere!
We all got to try the Black Bart blues

Black Bart's truckin' ain't what it seems
Black Bart's lookin', don't know where she's been
Maybe she's an acrobat, spends her evenings dancing on a pole
We all got to try the Black Bart blues

Black Bart tried most of anything
Black Bart liked it but he couldn't sing
So he asked me to tell ya, try it for yourself and you will see
We all got to try the Black Bart blues

Bruce: What did you do that for?

Groupie: I'm sorry, I just... I guess I'm not used to...

Bruce: Shut up and get on with it will you

Black Bart's livin' across the ocean now
Black Bart's lookin' to come back somehow
So if you are a dancer, you could dance around his pole in May
That's a maypole

Black Bart's coming, now Black Bart's gone
Black Bart did it so I wrote this song
Whatever and however, in and out or several at a time mmm yes!
We all got to do the Black Bart blues

Here comes the guitar solo

We all got to try the Black Bart blues

Yowsa! Yowsa! Yowsa!

Massacre (Lynott, Gorham, Downey)

At a point below zero
There's no place left to go
Six hundred unknown heroes
Were killed like sleeping buffalo

Through the devil's canyon
Across the battlefield
Death has no companion
The spirit's lost

There goes the bandolero
Through the hole in the wire
He's a coward but he doesn't care
Doesn't care if he lives or if he dies

The general that's commanding
He's defending what he fears
While the troops they are depending
On reinforcements from the rear

If God is in his heaven
How come there's no heaven here?
In God's name they use weapons
For the massacre

At a point below zero
Where the sun can see the land
Six hundred unknown heroes
Lay dead beneath the sand

The Evil That Men Do (Smith, Dickinson, Harris)

Love is a razor and I walked the line on that silver blade
Slept in the dust with his daughter, her eyes red with the slaughter of innocence
But I will pray for her, I will call her name out loud
I would bleed for her, if I could only see her now

Living on a razor's edge, balancing on a ledge
Living on a razor's edge, balancing on a ledge
Balancing on a ledge, living on a razor's edge
Balancing on a ledge, you know, you know

The evil that men do lives on and on...
The evil that men do lives on and on...
The evil that men do lives on and on...
The evil that men do lives on and on...

Circle of fire my baptism of joy at an end it seems
The seventh lamb slain, the book of life opens before me
And I will pray for you, someday I may return
Don't you cry for me, beyond is where I learn

Living on a razor's edge, balancing on a ledge
Living on a razor's edge, you know, you know

The evil that men do lives on and on...
The evil that men do lives on and on...
The evil that men do lives on and on...
The evil that men do lives on and on...

Living on a razor's edge, balancing on a ledge
Living on a razor's edge, you know, you know

The evil that men do lives on and on...
The evil that men do lives on and on...
The evil that men do lives on and on...
The evil that men do lives on and on...

The evil, the evil, the evil that men do
The evil, the evil, the evil that men do

Prowler '88 (Harris)

Walking through the city
Looking oh so pretty
I've just got to find my way
See the ladies flashing
All their legs and lashes
I've just got to find my way

Well you see me crawling through the bushes
With it open wide – What you seeing girl?
Can't you believe that feeling, can't you believe it?
Can't you believe your eyes? – It's the real thing girl

Got me feeling myself and reeling around
Got me talking but feel like walking around

Got me feeling myself and reeling a...
Got me talking but nothing's with me...
Got me feeling myself and reeling around

Walking through the city
Looking oh so pretty
I've just got to find my way
See the ladies flashing
All their legs and lashes
I've just got to find my way

Well you see me crawling through the bushes
With it open wide – What you seeing girl?
Can't you believe that feeling, can't you believe it?
Can't you believe your eyes? – It's the real thing girl

Got me feeling myself and reeling around
Got me talking but feel like walking around

Charlotte The Harlot '88 (Murray)

Giving a swish with your arse in the air don't you know what they're saying?
Charlotte you're so refined when you take all the love that they're giving
Sticking with every man that you find don't you know what they're after?
Charlotte you've got your legs in the air don't you hear all the laughter?

Charlotte The Harlot show me your legs
Charlotte The Harlot take me to bed
Charlotte The Harlot let me see blood
Charlotte The Harlot let me see love

Taking so many men to your room don't you feel no remorse?
You charge them a fiver it's only for starters and ten for the main course
And you've got no feelings they died long ago don't you care who you let in?
Don't you know you're breaking the law with the service you're giving

Charlotte The Harlot show me your legs
Charlotte The Harlot take me to bed
Charlotte The Harlot let me see blood
Charlotte The Harlot let me see love

There was a time when you left me standing there picking up pieces of love off the floor
Well Charlotte you left me alone in there to make your ends as a bloody whore
Well Charlotte you told me you love me true picking up pieces of love yesterday
Well Charlotte your drawers are off color too 'cause you're making love all day

Giving a swish with your arse in the air don't you know what they're saying?
Charlotte you're so refined when you take all the love that they're giving
Sticking with every man that you find don't you know what they're after?
Charlotte you've got your legs in the air don't you hear all the laughter?

Charlotte The Harlot show me your legs
Charlotte The Harlot take me to bed
Charlotte The Harlot let me see blood
Charlotte The Harlot let me see love

Listen With Nicko Part IX

...what ho! Nicko here! Welcome to Nicko's "Not alot of people know that, number 9!" Yes! This is the one that comes after eight or before ten, but if you don't have number eight, it comes after seven, doesn't it? Yes, well you stupid little people out there, if you do not have number eight or number seven or one of them's missing, because if you don't have those little tokens in your sticky greasy palms and you don't have ten of them at the end of these ten weeks of releases of the re-released rather singles of Iron Maiden, you won't get your little box set, will you? No! Because as you know by now... I haven't told you but you should know... you will be the proud owner of a special box with some seriously good artwork from Mr. Derek Riggs. Yes! And you will then be able to put all those greasy horribly grubby pieces of vinyl in there which as you know will have those amazing pictures on them and the little artwork, packages, and sleeves... and all that good stuff in that box! So, keep them all or else you'll be in severely good trouble! <hits the microphone>... Take that!

Now then! Now! You are severely in some trouble now, because you've got 'Can I Play With Madness', 'Black Bart Blues', 'Massacre'! Mmmmmm! 'Can I Play With Madness' written by Harry Harris, 'Black Bart Blues' by Harry Harris and Bruce Dickinson, 'Massacre' Lynott, Gorham, and Downey. Yes, released the 2nd of March 1988, and it got to... <taps microphone>... what was that? <taps microphone>... Three! Yes, number three! It debuted at number four in the charts, thanks to you lot out there, you horrible viscious mean people to go out and buy such a seriously good single as that and get it to number three. Hahaha! No serious, folks, hah! This, what can you say, debuted at number four.

Oh by the way on a more sombre note, and something like that... must say before we go much further... is that, as you may know, remember the video and all that good stuff, this here single. Well it was featuring a chap who I think we would all agree was one of the great comedians and one of the major contributors to the Monty Python mob and gang cohooting geezers out there doing all that mumbo jumbling stuff... with the big boot and stuff, squashing everybody... yes! Was Mr. Graham Chapman. Well, here's a little memorandum to him... ah, memorandum... in memory of him... memorandum... crazy, off the wall. No, I think what we gotta say is thanks to Graham for such a great contribution to comedy in general and everything, he's gonna be sadly missed. But this was one of his last film performances before he unfortunately died. So, lets hope he's having a good time up there, and we'll... undoubtedly we'll meet one another time somewhere else in a different place.

Anyway! Moving on to a lighter note, yes! You've got 'Black Bart Blues' on this here single, and as you know after the old 'Black Bart Blues' there's some various mumblings and jumblings from yours truly. And these were not "not alot of people know that" mumblings and jumblings, these were stupid mumbling jumblings that were put together off of all the... at the ends of all the songs that we recorded over that album of Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son such as "hmm... they're gonna put this on a CD!... And I got a lil' solo! ...I said I seen'em..." and all that stuff right? Well you know what I mean, cause you just f'kin' listened to it, didn't ya? So there we were, picture this. We were at the playback after we had made the album, recorded it, all that good stuff, mixed it. And we were at the playback for the EMI people. And all the band were there, and all the press... Micky Wall and a few other people... hello Micky! ...were all there, and they're doing all their old reviews of this album and stuff, so we played... kinda played... now, you've gotta bear this in mind... none of the chaps, not one of them let me know what was going on, see? So I was clueless! I know, but as I usually... no now look, I was, I didn't have a clue. See? So! There I was standing there... now you picture this... there's the PA system that we were playing this here stuff back through, behind me. And I'm looking down and all the band, and we'd already gone through the album and all this, and we'd got up to singles time, see?

Everybody was out, all the EMI bigwigs are there, you know, "yeah what ho, yes, eh pretty damn good album don't you think?" "Well yes I do, pretty damn good, don't you think, yes." "Eh, shall we pay them money this week?" "Yeah, I could think we can ...pretty good stuff, lets go." So! Anyway, having said that, there I am... this damn thing comes on the bleedin' music box. After it finishes... 'Black Bart Blues' finishes that is, there's "whooo, hello!" You know and there's all this stuff like answer phone stuff, I phone someone I forget where they got that from, oh it was the studio answer machine... "Hi Hi, Nicko here...hi." Anyway, you know, just stupid stuff. Then it starts, don't it. Well, can you imagine my face. There's all the band creased up falling all over the place laughing... they all thought it was the funniest thing since whatever. So there I am looking at this lot, and I'm kind of feeling a bit embarrassed you know, cause I'd not heard this, and I thought "what's all this mumbling jumbling coming out these here big speakers?" Then I looked over at the other side of the room... you know those... you know those faces that you get from the theatre, right, you know you've got the comedy chops and the thriller, you know, and the sad stuff, you know. There's one smiling and there's one looking like, you know, he's just lost a quid and found a tenner, you know. And er... So, picture this... the room's one half crawling all over the floor laughing, and the other lot are like "eh, what's going on? What's this stuff coming in?" Can you imagine this is the world... EMI world people you know from all over the place. And I tell ya, when these people saw everybody going "Hahahahaho!" they're going "ho ha ha HA HA HAAHA! Oh what ho jeez, pretty funny hahhaa." So they also saw the funny side of it after awhile, but it took awhile I'll tell ya. And of course I was really really embarrassed to say the least, cause this was my lunacy stuff, and you you lot f'kin' got it in your sweaty greasy horrible little palms again, ain't ya!

Anyway! Enough of that, moving on. On the other side you've got 'The Evil That Men Do', or on the same side, I dunno how the bloody hell they put this record!! <hits microphone>... Take that! 'The Evil That Men Do'... Written by H. Smith... Adrian Smith, B. Dickinson... Paul Dickinson, and 'Arry Bomber Harris... Steve Harris. Hmm. Released the 1st of August 1988! And on the other side of that we had 'Prowler '88' and 'Charlotte The Harlot' written by Mister Murray and Harris! Yes, Dave came out of the closet for that one. Whoah! No, I didn't mean it badly, I mean Dave doesn't... when he writes a song he writes a cracker, don't he? But, he... he sort of... he writes one every couple of years, and he's got a couple in reserve at the moment, and so you lot might hear some of this in the next couple of months because I think he's got a cut for the new album that you ain't gonna believe.

Anyway! Evil That Men Do. Shar... sh... sh... sh... I had one of them this morning... no, a shower. Chart position five, it debuted at number six. Do-de-de-de-do! Now, 'Prowler' and 'Charlotte The Harlot' we recorded... we re-re-re-re-re-recorded these because the band... ah it's getting silly, I've gotta get out of here and get some fresh air, I mean you ain't gonna believe what it's like in this little room. Anyway, the band never were completely happy with the original versions, you know, from way back. So... And you lot, you greasy despicable mean mangy looking lot out there, you-ou-ou-ou been requesting some of this stuff from the early material to be recorded... re-recorded... with your's truly. Hahahaha! No, no, no, no, I'm joking! No, you know, re-recorded with Bruce and the... how's that, we'll put me in there too, so... Actually, Steve and I were actually discussing a few months back about all these old songs... the old stuff that we've re-recorded, about doing maybe in the future, keeping it the same format so basically the end of the day we might actually have the whole back issue of all the stuff with this sort of Maiden re-recorded, all the old stuff that we weren't on... myself, Bruce, and H. So there you go, you never know.

By the way, here's a joke for ya. I gotta tell you this before I leave, because I got to... I'm running out of time. And... yeah, it's like this, see:

Superman and Batman talking to one another one day, so Superman says, "'Ere Bat." "Yeah, what, what's the matter Sup?" He said, "I was out having a little jaunt over at central park the other day", he said, "I had a touch of the hold-on light, and you'll never guess what!" He said, "What's that Sup?" He said, "I f'kin' looked down... strike me down, there's Wonder Woman wiggling about, legs up in the air, lassoo, all that old stuff... ooh, she must be having a good time... f'kin' hell, what's she doing!" He says, Batman says, "Well what did you do?" He said, "Well I got f'kin' serious touch of the hard-on, didn't I? It nearly shot me out to Jupiter!" He said, "Did it?" He said, "No, I got as far as Mars!" He said, "F'kin' hell, that was a touch, wasn't it?" He said, "More than that! I came back I had such a bone-on, there she was wiggling and wobbling out on the grass, f'kin' legs up in the air... oh, she was rubbing her dun great tits! Rubbing her thighs... and she was just kinda caressing... oh!" he said "I couldn't resist!" Batman says, "Well what did you do then, Sup?" He said, "Well, I unzipped my boy... you know, my fly, and I got my boy out and I f'kin' shot down from a thousand feet!" He said, "Did ya?" He said, "Yeah! f'kin' great!" Batman says, "Well, what happened then?" He said, "Well, it f'kin' landed... you know, on top of her!" He said, "Did ya?" He said, "F'kin' right!" He said "I bet Wonder Woman was real surprised, weren't she?" He said, "Yeah, not half as surprised as the bleedin' Invisible Man!"

Hahahahahahah! Hahahah! <drums something> Oh dear! Nevermind! I'm off! I'm going! Tada!
