Iron Maiden - Rime Of The Ancient Mariner

Hear the rime of the ancient mariner, see his eye as he stops one of three
Mesmerizes one of the wedding guests, stay here and listen the nightmares of the sea
And the music plays on, as the bride passes by,
caught by his spell and the mariner tells his tale

Driven south to the land of the snow and ice, to a place where nobody's been
Through the snow fog flies on the albatross, hailed in God's name
hoping good luck it brings

And the ship sails on, back to the north
Through the fog and ice and the albatross follows on

The mariner kills the bird of good omen, his shipmates cry against what he's done
But when the fog clears they justify him, and make themselves a part of the crime

Sailing on and on and North across the sea
Sailing on and on and North 'til all is calm

The albatross begins with its vengeance, a terrible curse a thirst has begun
His shipmates blame bad luck on the mariner, about his neck the dead bird is hung

And the curse goes on and on at sea
And the curse goes on and on for them and me

"Day after day, day after day, we stuck nor breath nor motion
As idle as a painted ship upon a painted ocean
Water, water everywhere and all the boards did shrink
Water, water everywhere nor any drop to drink."

There, calls the Mariner, there comes a ship of the line
But how can she sail with no...(more)
