Alexander The Great Lyrics - Somewhere In Time - Iron Maiden

"My son ask for thyself another 

Kingdom, for that which 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 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 in 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 amongst mortal men 

 

A Phrygian King had bound a chariot yoke 

And Alexander cut the 'Gordian knot' 

And 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
