Alexander The Great: una delle mie canzoni preferite e nel contempo sottovalutata dagli stessi Maiden come l’album che la contiene, Somewhere In Time (1986). La ripropongo quindi col basso… ( perdonate qualche imperfezione ūüėõ )
 
Alexander the great: one of my favorite songs at the same time underestimated by the same Maiden as the album that contains it, Somewhere In Time (1986). Propose again then with the bass … (Forgive some imperfections: P)

‘my son ask for thyself another
Kingdom for that wich I leave
Is too small for thee’
(king philip of macedonia – 339 b.c.)
 
Near to the east
In a part of ancient greece
In an ancient land called macedonia
Was born a son
To philip of macedon
The legend his name was alexander
 
At the age of nineteen
He became the macedon king
And he swore to free all of asia minor
By the aegian sea
In 334 b.c.
He utterly beat the armies of persia
 
Alexander the great
His name struck fear into hearts of men
Alexander the great
Became a legend ‘mongst mortal men
 
King darius the third
Defeated fled persia
The scythians fell by the river of jaxartes
Then egypt fell to the macedon king as well
And he founded the city called alexandria
 
By the tigris river
He met king darius again
And crushed him again at the battle of arbela
Entering babylon
And susa treasures he found
Took persepolis the capital of persia
 
Alexander the great
His name struck fear into hearts of men
Alexander the great
Became a God ‘mongst mortal men
 
A phrygian king had bound a chariot yoke
And alexander cut the ‘gordian knot’
And the legend said that who untied the knot
He would become the master of asia
 
Helonism he spread far and wide
The macedonian learned mind
Their culture was a western way of life
He paved the way for christianity
 
Marching on marching on
 
The battle weary marching side by side
Alexander’s army line by line
They wouldn’t follow him to india
Tired of the combat, pain and the glory
 
Alexander the great
His name struck fear into hearts of men
Alexander the great
He died of fever in babylon
