Your Passion, Our Purpose

Aces High

There goes the siren that warns of the air raid There comes the sound of the guns sending flak. Out for the scramble we’ve got to get airborne Got to get up for the coming attack.
Jump in the cockpit and start up the engines Remove all the wheel blocks, there’s no time to waste. Gathering speed as we head down the runway Gotta get airborne before it’s too late.
Running, scrambling, flying
Rolling, turning, diving, going in again.
Running, scrambling, flying
Rolling, turning, diving.
Run
Live to fly
Fly to live
Do or die
Won’t you run
Live to fly
Fly to live
Aces high.
Move in to fire at the mainstream of bombers Let off a sharp burst and then turn away. Roll over, spin ’round to come in behind them Move to their blindsides and firing again.
Bandits at eight o’clock move in behind us Ten ME-109’s out of the sun Ascending and turning our Spitfires to face them Heading straight for them I press down my guns.
Rolling, turning, diving
Rolling, turning, diving, going in again.
Rolling, turning, diving
Rolling, turning, diving.
Run
Live to fly
Fly to live
Do or die
Won’t you run
Live to fly
Fly to live
Aces high
