Women In Uniform (Macainah)

Patrolwoman Saunders, don't you give her no whip
Took me to the station for a breathtest
then back to the bedroom for some house-arrest

Women in uniform, sometimes they look so cold
Women in uniform, but, Oh! They feel so warm
Coming back to London on a 747
Stewardess made me feel like I'm in heaven
Looking up the aisle to see what I could see
She leaned over said; Give it to me
White apron, brown leather shoes
The nurse at the clinic left my heart all bruised
Gave me a massage, sprained my right
Now she takes my temperature every night

Women in uniform, Women in uniform
Women in uniform, Women in uniform
Commando raid on the Lebanese border
Sergeant Anita, she gives the order
Khaki jacket and a love gun
Baby, I surrender, let's have some fun

Women in uniform, Women in uniform
Women in uniform, Women in uniform
Women in uniform, Khaki, white and blue
Women in uniform, coming after you
Women, women, Women in uniform
Women, women, Women in uniform

Invasion (Harris)

The Vikings are coming
You'd better get ready for we're having a fight
The longboats are coming
It's looking like their? in the dead of the night

Muster the men from all the villages
You'd better get ready to fight with your enemies

Beacons are burning
I'm giving the word to get ready to fight
The battle is nearing
You'd better get ready to fight for your lives

The Norsemen are coming
The Norsemen are coming
The warnings are given
The Norsemen are coming

Raping and pillaging
Robbing and looting the land

Viking raiders from afar

Phantom Of The Opera (Harris)

I've been looking so long for you now you won't get away from my grasp
You've been living so long in hiding in hiding behind that false mask
And you know and I know that you ain't got that long to last
Your looks and your feelings are just the remains of your past

Standing in the wings there you wait for the curtain to fall
Knowing the terror and holding you have on us all
I know that you're gonna scratch me and maim me and maul
You know I'm helpless from your mesmerising cat call

Keep your distance walk away don't take his bait
Don't you stray, don't fade away
Watch your step he's out to get you come what may
Don't you stray from the narrow way

(2:47 – Slow Solo: Dave Murray)
(5:09 – Solo: Dave Murray)
(5:26 – Solo: Dennis Stratton)

I'm running and hiding in my dreams you're always there
You're the Phantom of the Opera you're the devil you're just out to scare
You damaged my mind and my soul it just floats through the air
You haunt me you taunt me you torture me back at your lair

Twilight Zone (Murray, Harris)

She lays in bed at night and that is when I make my call
But when she stares at me she can't see nothing at all
Because you see I can't take no shape or form
It's been three long years since I've been gone

I can't get used to purgatory, you know it really makes me cry
I'll never know the reason why I had to go
I'm crying, oh, oh, oh, deep inside me
Oh, oh, oh, can't you see me? Ah, can't you see me?

I'm looking forward to her spirit coming over to me
I feel tempted to bring her over to see
Just what it's like to be hanging on the other side
I feel so lonely it's been a long time since I died

I try to show her that she's never gonna be alone
Because my spirit is imprisoned in the twilight zone
I'm crying, oh, oh, oh, deep inside me
Oh, oh, oh, can't you see me? Ah, can't you see me?

Wrathchild (Harris)

I was born into a scene of angriness and greed, and dominance and persecution
My mother was a queen, my dad I've never seen, I was never meant to be

And now I spend my time looking all around
For a man that's nowhere to be found
Until I find him I'm never gonna stop searching
I'm gonna find my man, gonna travel around

'Cause I'm a wrathchild
Well I'm a wrathchild
Yeah I'm a wrathchild
I'm coming to get you, oooh yeah!

(1:01 – Solo: Dave Murray)

Some say it shouldn't matter, ain't nothin' gonna alter the course of my destination
I know I've got to find some serious peace of mind, or I know I'll just go crazy

And now I spend my time looking all around
For a man that's nowhere to be found
Until I find him I'm never gonna stop searching
I'm gonna find my man, gonna travel around

'Cause I'm a wrathchild
Well I'm a wrathchild
Yeah I'm a wrathchild
I'm coming to get you, oooh yeah!

Listen With Nicko Part II

What ho hahahaha!  
Well, welcome once again to the Not a lot of people know that, part II. Or in other
words, Nick's verbal diarrhoea for the second time running. You lucky lot! Now you're out
there holding in your sweaty palms and all them grubby little fingers and hands, are
holding, ooh the second re-released singles box set from Iron Maiden, the second weeks
now we're running, now we're onto a cruise. Women In Uniform! You've just listened to
it! Invasion! You've just listened to it! Phantom Of The Opera! You've just listened to it!
Ohh, and Twilight Zone and Wrathchild, both 'Arry Harris..bomber Harris compositions of
the most outstandingly stunning performances! Marvellous!
Well, look it here, look here! Women In Uniform, mmmmmm. Now then 'Arry, you slipped
up....listen don't tell him but you know it wasn't a song by 'Arry, see, but he knows that
anyway, don't he. Wot? Anyway, Women In Uniform, written by the Macainah brothers...
I think I pronounced that right lads... if you're listening, well too f'king bad if I ain't, I'm
very sorry but anyway, nevertheless. Aussie band, Skyhooks I believe they were called,
the name of the band, first originally recorded this Women In Uniform. The boys decided
to do it, and released this single 27th of October 1980. And uh, well, great song, you
know... doo doo ah dee dee... good song, and all that. And as I say, you've got Invasion
and Phantom Of The Opera live. My goodness, aren't you lucky people... Gosh I don't
even have this stuff at home. You know what, I tell ya, one of the reasons that we're
releasing all these bits and pieces, not only to celebrate ten years with such a great
company as EMI, but not a lot of us have got a complete set of the singles and all that
stuff so it's really so we can get the old collection going. Yeah, so anyway,
Right, now Mike Kenny made his debut in the video as Eddie I do believe, on the very
first promo video. Well, I say the first promo,.. the Invasion video, was the first rock
promo, one of the first rock promos by a British rock band. I suppose you think Queen
with their Bohemian Rhapsody was close to that, you know, I think they were probably
the very first. But it was quite visionary if you think of the importance of videos now,
you get it...vision...quite vis....yeah, allright ok, cut the crap and get on with it. Alright
so there you go, first song the band's ever released in a-side is by somebody else, and
uh yeah, that's cool. And by the way, Invasion was part of the band's you know the
stage set that the boys used to use in the late 70's, and originally it was released on the
Soundhouse Tapes. Oh, we all know about the Soundhouse Tapes... take that if you
don't! wooh, I'll give you ........I wanna hit you so hard.... Anyway! Invasion was on the
Soundhouse Tapes, and Steve and the guys decided to record a proper studio version of
this song, so that's why that was re-done basically.
And Phantom was recorded at the Marquee in July 1980, oh yes you lucky Maidenettes
and Maiden guys and all that out there! Four dates in one week, to wind up their summer
UK tour in 1980, can you remember that? What a great time! Did Top Of The Pops live,
again, by the way, and the guys did the sound check...this is, not a lot of people know
this....and the did the sound check in the afternoon. And a minute before the
performance the sound monitor engineer turned around and says "I'm not gonna have
this...you're too loud, we're gonna turn it down". And they messed around with all the
twiddly knobs and everything, on the desk, ON THE DESK!!! right? And it totally poxed it
all up. So the boys vowed never to play..um... I said Top Of The Pops, didn't I. Well you
know that company on the last thing I was trying to think of an abbreviation for, right?
Well you know what I'm talking about right? Well it's the Bleeding Bojack Company, right,
that's what it is, and that's what they done to 'em so it's on the videos now and that's
it. Boom.
So you lucky lot. Oooh, Twilight Zone and Wrathchild, both as I said, 'Arry Harris
compositions... released the 2nd of March 1981, got to chart position 31. Not bad, eh!
Oh by the way, the Women In Uniform and Invasion and that got to 35, I think I forgot
to mention that. If I did mention it, too f'king bad, allright. So, Twilight Zone and
Wrathchild, that was recorded as part of a Killers session at the turn of '80 and '81. Now
Martin, he actually couldn't be there at this particular session, so the boys produced
Twilight Zone themselves. Quite clever when you think about it, aren't they, playing and
producing it at the same time. Amazing! Anyway, hahaha, so they decided to release this
Twilight Zone on the Killer's album. And so the boys and Rod sent a telex over to Japan,
see, and they explained all the details of the song. So the Japanese, they're a funny lot
aren't they, they took it literally, and the song was printed as Details Of Twilight Zone.
My goodness, that's a cracker innit? Hah!
By the way, boys and girls, if you know your trivia. Mr. H. Adrian Smith joined the band in
that particular time, didn't he? Yeah, now Twilight Zone, this happened to be Adrian's
first single with the band. Now not a lot of people would remember that, but then again,
probably they would, so I'll stuff it in the pipe and smoke it. H joined the band in
September 1980, and as you know, on the back of this as it's a double a-side, it was
Wrathchild, and Adrian had to learn Wrathchild as part of his audition, you know. He also
had to show the boys that he could kick a football and down a pint of beer in five
seconds. He managed both of them no problem, now Wrathchild he had to do the
business. Well all I can say is this... he must have done a f'king good job ain't he, eh?
Cause he's steaming and he's right there, see? So, not a lot of people knew that either.
So anyway, that's H's audition out of the way, and he was always happening and he
went out on the tour in 1980 and 1981 and all this. And, well, there you go. As it
happens, as I said, the session that they did with the Twilight Zone and Wrathchild came
out so well that they released it as a double a-side... By the way, as we're talking about
musicians, I've got a joke for ya. I'm not gonna to like it very much, but you might,
allright, so here it is:
What do you call somebody that hangs around with musicians? Awwww no, not that one!
Surely! Allright, a bloody drummer!
Allright, now I've said it and all the boys are at me, I've got that one out of the way.
Thanks a lot Rod, hmmm. There you go. Oh by the way, I was in a band called Trust
around that period of time, and in fact, the boys, we came out with Iron Maiden on their
Killers tour of Great Britain. And not a lot of people know that either. But uh, we had a
great time, we did about three and a half weeks with the band, and we had a serious...
it was great! Well, what can I say? Not a lot anymore, I think I've just about covered all
that one. Um, so I'm going down the pub to have a beer. Tada
