A Kind Of Magic (Taylor)

It's a kind of magic, it's a kind of magic, a kind of magic,
one dream, one soul, one prize, one goal, one golden glance of what should be
One shaft of light that shows the way, no mortal man can win this day.
The bell that rings inside your mind, it's challenging the doors of time.
The waiting seems eternity, the day will dawn of sanity, is this a kind of magic?
There can be only one. This rage that lasts a thousand years will soon be gone.

This flame that burns inside of me, I'm hearing secret harmonies.
The bell that rings inside your mind is challenging the doors of time.
This rage that lasts a thousand years, will soon be, will soon be, will soon be gone,
this is a kind of magic, there can be only one.
This rage that lasts a thousand years will soon be gone, gone.

Magic, it's a kind of magic, it's a kind of magic.
Magic, magic, magic, magic, it's magic, it's a kind of magic…


All Dead All Dead (May)

She came without a farthing, a babe without a name.
So much ado about nothing is what she'd try to say.
So much ado my lover, so many games we played
through every fleeted summer, through every precious day.
All dead, all dead, all the dreams we had and I wonder why I still live on.
All dead, all dead, and alone I'm spared, my sweeter half instead, you’re dead and gone.

All dead, all dead, at the rainbow's end and still I hear her own sweet song.
All dead, all dead, take me back again. You know my little friend's all dead and gone.

Her ways are always with me, I wander all the while.
But please you must forgive me, I am old but still a child.

All dead, all dead, but I should not grieve. In time it comes to everyone.
All dead, all dead, but in hope, I breathe.
Of course I don't believe you're dead and gone. All dead and gone.


Another One Bites The Dust (Deacon)

Steve walks warily down the street with his brim pulled way down low.
Ain't no sound but the sound of his feet, machine guns ready to go.
Are you ready, are you ready for this, are you hanging on the edge of your seat?
Out of the doorway, the bullets rip to the sound of the beat-
another one bites the dust, another one bites the dust.
and another one gone, and another one gone, another one bites the dust.
Hey, I'm gonna get you too, another one bites the dust.

How do you think I'm going to get along without you when you're gone?
You took me for everything that I had and kicked me out on my own.
Are you happy, are you satisfied? How long can you stand the heat?
Out of the doorway, the bullets rip to the sound of the beat-
another one bites the dust, another one bites the dust.
and another one gone, and another one gone, another one bites the dust.
Hey, I'm gonna get you too, another one bites the dust.

Another one bites the dust. Another one bites the dust.
Another one bites the dust. Another one bites the dust.

There are plenty of ways that you can hurt a man and bring him to the ground.
You can beat him, you can cheat him, you can treat him bad and leave him when he's down.
But I'm ready, yes I'm ready for you, I'm standing on my own two feet.
Out of the doorway, the bullets rip, repeating to the sound of the beat.
another one bites the dust, another one bites the dust.
and another one gone, and another one gone, another one bites the dust.
Hey, I'm gonna get you too, another one bites the dust.

Another one bites the dust. Another one bites the dust.
Another one bites the dust. Another one bites the dust.


Back To The Light

Far,far from the light, hear the night creatures call
with the cold breath they howl, all the hollow hours, they're calling you.
I'll be there, no matter what you're going through,
in the dark I care, I'm holding on, I'm hoping on, it's still the same old me inside.

Back to the light, back to the streets that are paved with gold.
Back to the light, back to the land where the sunshine heals my soul.
Deep, deep in the night when the world fills with tears
and the wind blows, colder and colder it grows and the fire dims with the same old fears,
I'll be there, though maybe you don't hear me, babe.
I still care, no matter when, I'll still be there when you make it to the other side.

I'm going back, back to the light, back to the light, back to the streets that are paved with gold.
Back to the light, going back to the land where the sunshine heals my soul.
On and on, searching for a clearer view,
winning and losing an inner war, wonder what we do it for.
Though the road seems never ending, hold on to the hope I'm sending through.

No matter where you're going to, in the dark I care, I'm holding on, believe it,
we'll be walking in the light because there'll be no place left to hide.

Back to the light, back to the streets that are paved with gold.
Back to the light, yeah, I'm going back to the land where the sunshine heals my soul.
I hear you babe, back to the light (back to the light).
Back to the light (back to the light).  Back to the light, back to the light, yeah.
Coming back with me, yeah, yeah.


Bohemian Rhapsody (Mercury)

Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?  Caught in a landslide, no escape from reality.
Open your eyes, look up to the skies and see.
I'm just a poor boy, I need no sympathy because I'm easy come, easy go, little high, little low.
Anyway the wind blows, doesn't really matter to me, to me.

Mama, just killed a man, put a gun against his head, pulled my trigger, now he's dead.
Mama, life had just begun, but now I've gone and thrown it all away.
Mama, ooo, didn't mean to make you cry.
If I'm not back again this time tomorrow, carry on, carry on, as if nothing really matters.

Too late, my time has come, sends shivers down my spine, body's aching all the time.
Goodbye everybody, I've got to go. Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth.
Mama, ooo, I don't want to die, I sometimes wish I'd never been born at all.

I see a little silhouetto of a man, Scaramouch, Scaramouch will you do the Fandango?
Thunderbolt and lightning, very, very frightening me.
Galileo, Galileo, Galileo, Galileo, Galileo, Figaro, magnifico.
I'm just a poor boy and nobody loves me
He's just a poor boy from a poor family, spare him his life from this monstrosity.
Easy come easy go, will you let me go, Bismillah?
No, we will not let you go. Let him go, Bismillah.
We will not let you go, Let him go, Bismillah.
We will not let you go, let him go, will not let you go, let me go
will not let you go, let me go, no, no, no, no, no, no, no.
Mama Mia, Mama Mia, Mama Mia, let me go.
Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me, for me, for me.

So you think you can stone me and spit in my eye?
So you think you can love me and leave me to die?
Oh, baby, can't do this to me baby.  Just gotta get out, just gotta get right outta here.
Nothing really matters, anyone can see. Nothing really matters, nothing really matters to me.
Any way the wind blows...


Breakthru

When love breaks up, when the dawn light wakes up a new life is born.
Somehow I have to make this final breakthru now.

I wake up, feel just fine. Your face fills my mind.
I get religion quick cause you're looking divine.
Honey you're touching something, you're touching me,
I'm under your thumb, under your spell, can't you see,
if I could only reach you, if I could make you smile,
if I could only reach you, that would really be a breakthru, oh yeah.

Breakthru, these barriers of pain. Breakthru, to the sunshine from the rain.
Make my feelings known towards you, turn my heart inside and out for you now.
Somehow, I have to make this final breakthru now.

Your smile speaks books to me. I break up with each and every one of your looks at me.
Honey, you're starting something deep inside of me.
Honey, you're sparking something, this fire in me.
I'm outta control, I wanna rush headlong into this ecstasy.
If I could only reach you, if I could make you smile,
if I could only reach you, that would really be a breakthru.
If I could only reach you, if I could make you smile,
if I could only reach you, that would really be a breakthru. Breakthru.


Bring Back That Leroy Brown (Mercury)

Bring back, bring back, bring back that Leroy Brown, yeah.
Bring back, bring back, gotta bring that Leroy Brown back.
Bet your bottom dollar bill you're a playboy, yeah, yeah.
Daddy Cool with a ninety-dollar smile.
Took my money out of gratitude and he get right outta town, well.
I gotta getty up, steady up shoot him down, gotta hit that latitude, babe.

Bring back, bring back, bring back that Leroy Brown, yeah.
Bring back, bring back, gotta bring that Leroy Brown back.
Big bad Leroy Brown he got no common sense, no, no.
He got no brains but he sure gotta lot of style.
Can't stand no more in this here jail, I gotta rid myself of this sentence.
Gotta get out the heat, step into the shade, gotta get me there dead or alive, babe.
Wooh, wooh, big bad Leroy, wooh, wooh, wooh, wooh, big bad Leroy Brown, well.

Bring back, bring back, bring back that Leroy Brown, yeah.
Bring back, bring back, gotta bring that Leroy Brown back.
Big Mama Lulu Belle she had a nervous breakdown (she had a nervous breakdown).
Leroy's taken her honey child away.
But she met him down at the station, put a shotgun to his head
and unless I be mistaken, this is what she said:
"Big bad, big boy, big bad Leroy Brown, I'm gonna get that cutie pie."

Bring back, bring back, bring back that Leroy Brown, yeah.
Bring back, bring back, gotta bring that Leroy Brown back.
Big bad caused a mighty fine sensation, yeah, yeah.
Gone and got himself elected president (we want Leroy for president).
Next time you gotta hit a bitty baddy, weather. This time, like a shimmy, shammy leather.
He's a big boy, bad boy, Leroy.
I don't care where you get him from, bring that big bad Leroy back.


Brighton Rock (May)

Happy little day Jimmy went away, met his little Jenny on a public holiday.
A happy pair they made, so decorously laid
neath the gay illuminations all along the promenade.
"It's so good to know there's still a little magic in the air, I'll weave my spell."
"Jenny will you stay, tarry with me, pray,
nothing 'ere need come between us tell me love, what do you say?"
"Oh no, I must away to my mum in disarray.
If my mother should discover how I spent my holiday,
it would be of small avail to talk of magic in the air, I'll say farewell."

O, Rock of Ages, do not crumble, love is breathing still.
O, Lady Moon, shine down a little people magic if you will.

Jenny pines away, writes a letter everyday.
"We must ever be together, nothing can my love erase."
"Oh no I'm compromised, I must apologize,
if my lady should discover how I spent my holidays..."


Crazy Little Thing Called Love
(Mercury)

This thing, called love, I just can't handle it. This thing, called love, I must get round to it.
I ain't ready, crazy little thing called love.
This (this thing), called love, (called love), it cries (like a baby) in a cradle all night.
It swings (woo woo), it jives (woo woo), it shakes all over like a jelly fish,
I kinda like it, crazy little thing called love.

There goes my baby, she knows how to rock n' roll.
She drives my crazy, she gives me hot and cold fever, she leaves me in a cold, cold sweat.
I gotta be cool, relax, get hip, get on my track's.
Take a back seat, hitch-hike and take a long ride on my motor bike
until I'm ready, crazy little thing called love.

I gotta be cool, relax, get hip, get on my track's.
Take a back seat, hitch-hike and take a long ride on my motor bike
until I'm ready, (ready Freddie), crazy little thing called love.

This thing, called love, I just can't handle it. This thing, called love, I must get round to it.
I ain't ready, crazy little thing called love. Crazy little thing called love, Mama…


Dead On Time
(May)

Fool, always jumping, never happy where you land.
Fool, got my business, make your living where you can.
Hurry down the highway, hurry down the road,
hurry past the people staring, hurry, hurry, hurry, hurry,
leave on time, leave on time, never got your ticket but you leave on time.
Leave on time, leave on time, gonna get your ticket but you leave on time.
Leave on time, leave on time, put it in your pocket but you never can tell.

Leave on time, leave on time, shake that rattle, gotta leave on time.
Leave on time, leave on time, fight your battle but you leave on time.
Leave on time, leave on time, never got a minute no you never got a minute,
no you never, never got, oh, no matter.

Fool, got no business hanging round and telling lies.
Fool, you got no reasons but you got no compromise.
Stamping on the ceiling, hammering on the walls,
gotta get out, gotta get out, gotta get, oh you know I'm going crazy.
Leave on time, leave on time, gotta get ahead but you leave on time.
Leave on time, leave on time, gotta head on ahead but you leave on time.
Leave on time, leave on time, you're running in the red but you never can tell.

Leave on time, leave on time, gotta get rich gonna leave on time.
Leave on time, leave on time, but you can't take it with you when you leave on time.
Leave on time, leave on time, got to keep yourself alive, gotta leave on time.
Gotta leave on time, leave on time, dead on time…you're dead!


Death On Two Legs (Mercury)

You suck my blood like a leech, you break the law and you breach, screw my brain till it hurts,
you've taken all my money, you still want more.
Misguided old mule with your pigheaded rules
with your narrow-minded cronies who are fools of the first division.
Death on two legs, you're tearing me apart.
Death on two legs, you never had a heart of your own.
Kill joy, bad guy, big talking small fry.
You're just an old barrow-boy, have you found a new toy to replace me, can you face me?
But now you can kiss my ass goodbye.
Feel good, are you satisfied? Do you feel like suicide (I think you should)?
Is your conscience all right, does it plague you at night? Do you feel good, feel good?

Talk like a big business tycoon but you're just a hot-air balloon,
so no one gives you a damn, you're just an overgrown school-boy, let me tan your hide.
A dog with disease, king of the sleaze,
put your money where your mouth is Mr. Know All,
was the fin on your back part of the deal...shark!

Death on two legs, you're tearing me apart.
Death on two legs, you never had a heart of your own (you never did, right from the start.)
Insane, you should be put inside, you're a sewer-rat decaying in a cesspool of pride.
Should be made unemployed then make yourself null-and-void, make me feel good, I feel good.


Doing All Right (May/Staffell)

Yesterday my life was in ruins, now today I know what I'm doing.
Got a feeling, I should be doing all right, doing all right.
Where will I be this time tomorrow? Jumped in joy or sinking in sorrow?
Anyway, I should be doing all right, doing all right.

Should be waiting for the sign, looking round to find the words to say.
Should be waiting for the skies to clear, if there were time in all the world.
Should be waiting for the sun and anyway, I got to hide away.

Yesterday my life was in ruin, now today, God knows what I'm doing.
Anyway, I should be doing all right, doing all right, doing all right.


Dreamers Ball (May)

Oh, I used to be your baby, used to be your pride and joy.
You used to take me dancing just like any other boy.
But now you've found another partner and left me like a broken toy.
Oh, it's someone else you're taking, someone else you're playing to.
Honey, though I'm aching, know just what I have to do.
If I can't have you when I'm waking, I'll go to sleep and dream of you.

Oh, take me, take me, take me to the dreamer's ball.
I'll be right on time and I'll dress so fine,
you're gonna love me when you see me, I won't have to worry.
Take me, take me, promise not to wake me till it's morning, it's all been true.
Oh, take me, take me, take me, I'm your plaything now.
You make my life worthwhile with the slightest smile
or destroy me with a barely perceptible whisper.
Gently take me, remember I'll be dreaming of my baby at the dreamer's ball.

Take me, hold me, remember what you told me,
you'd meet me at the dreamer's ball. I'll meet you at the dreamer's ball.


Driven By You

Oh, everything I do I do for you. Oh yeah.
We touch and you're afraid of me and we burn and now, I'm at your feet.
High speed, but you know you're in safe hands.
In the dark we make a brighter light from one spark to the horizon wide.
We trust and together we tame the land, yeah.
You'd be forgiven if you think you're dreaming
but we're working night and day to make a dream come true,
Everything I do is driven by you. Oh, come on babe.

Oh, well it's tough to make a journey through.
The right stuff is dead ahead of you and me and you know we've still got time.
Hold on tight to the driving wheel, this ride is really out of line.
Raw deal, but there's no other that's worth a dime.
You know I love you but you drive me crazy
because you're saying all the things I want to say to you, you say
everything I do is driven by you. Everything we do, everything we do.
Everything we do, everything we do. Everything we do is driven by you.

Inner children lost their way, now they know the price you pay.
I'm holding on to life with you because life without you just won't do.

You know I'm never going to know who's dreaming
but we're working night and day to make a dream come true,
everything I do is driven by you. Everything we do, everything we do.
Everything we do, everything we do. Everything we do, everything we do.
Everything we do, everything we do. Everything we do is driven by, driven by, driven by you.
Oh, everything I do, I do for you.


Fat Bottomed Girls
(May)

Are you gonna take me home tonight? Ah, down beside that red firelight?
Are you gonna let it all hang out? Fat bottomed girls, you make the rocking world go round.

Hey, I was just a skinny lad, never knew no good from bad
but I knew life before I left my nursery.
Left alone with big fat Fanny, she was such a naughty nanny,
hey, big woman you made a bad boy out of me.

I've been singing with my band across the wire, across the land,
I seen every blue eyed floozy on the way.
But their beauty and their style went kind of smooth after a while,
take me to them dirty ladies every time
Are you gonna take me home tonight? Ah, down beside that red firelight?
Oh, and you give it all you got, fat bottomed girls, you make the rocking world go round.
Fat bottomed girls, you make the rocking world go round.

Hey listen here, now your mortgages and homes, I got stiffness in your bones,
ain't no beauty queens in this locality (I tell you).
Oh, but I still get my pleasure, still get my greatest treasure,
hey, big woman you gonna make a big man out of me?
Oh, you gonna take me home tonight, (please)? Oh, down beside your red firelight?
Oh, you gonna let it all hang out? Fat bottomed girls, you make the rocking world go round.
Fat bottomed girls, you make the rocking world go round.
Get on your bikes and ride. Fat bottomed girls. Fat bottomed girls. Fat bottomed girls…


Father To Son (May)

A word in your ear, from father to son, hear the word that I say.
I fought with you, fought on your side long before you were born.
Joyful the sound, the word goes around from father to son, to son.

And the voice is so clear, time after time it keeps calling you, calling you on.
Don't destroy what you see, your country to be, just keep building on the ground that's been won.
Kings will be crowned, the word goes around from father to son, to son.

Won't you hear us sing our family song, now we hand it on, but I've heard it all before.
Take this letter that I give you, take it sonny, hold it high.
You won't understand a word that's in it but you'll write it all again before you die.

A word in your ear from father to son, funny you don't hear a single word I say.
But my letter to you will stay by your side through the years till the loneliness is gone.
Sing if you will, but the air you breathe, I live to give you.
Father to son, father to son, father to son, father to son.
Joyful the sound, the word goes around from father to son, to son.
Kings will be crowned, the word goes around from father to son, to son...


Gimme The Prize (Kurgan's Theme) (May)

Here I am, I'm the master of your destiny,
I am the one the only one, I am the god of kingdom come,
gimme the prize, just gimme the prize.

Give me your kings, let me squeeze them in my hands,
your puny princes, your so-called leaders of your land,
I'll eat them whole before I'm done, the battle's fought and the game is won,
I am the one the only one, I am the god of kingdom come, gimme the prize, just gimme the prize.

Move over, I said move over, hey, hey, hey clear the way,
there's no escape from my authority, I tell you.
I am the one the only one, I am the god of kingdom come,
gimme the prize, just gimme the prize,
I am the one the only one, I am the god of kingdom come, gimme the prize.


Good Company
(May)

Take good care of what you've got, my father said to me
as he puffed his pipe and Baby B., he dandled on his knee.
Don't fool with fools who'll turn away, keep all good company
Oo, hoo. Oo, hoo. Take care of those you call your own and keep good company.

Soon I grew and happy too, my very good friends and me.
We'd play all day with Sally J., the girl from number four.
And very soon I begged her, won't you keep me company.
Oo, hoo. Oo, hoo. Come marry me for evermore we'll, be good company.

Now marriage is an institution sure, my wife and I, our needs and nothing more.
All my friends by a year, by and by disappeared, but we're safe enough behind our door.

I flourished in my humble trade, my reputation grew.
The work devoured my waking hours but when my time was through,
reward of all my efforts, my own limited company.
I hardly noticed Sally as we parted company.

All through the years, in the end it appears, there was never really anyone but me.
Now I'm old, I puff my pipe but no one's there to see.
I ponder on the lesson of my life's insanity,
Take care of those you call your own and keep good company.


Good Old Fashioned Lover Boy
(Mercury)

I can dim the lights and sing you songs full of sad things, we can do the tango just for two.
I can serenade and gently play on your heart strings, be your Valentino just for you.
Ooh love, ooh loverboy, what're doing tonight, hey boy?
Set my alarm, turn on my charm, that's because I'm a good old fashioned loverboy.

Ooh, let me feel you heartbeat (grow faster, faster).
Ooh, let me feel your love heat, come on and sit on my hot-seat of love,
and tell me how do you feel right after all, I'd like for you and I to go romancing.
Say the word, your wish is my command.
Ooh love, ooh loverboy, what're doing tonight, hey boy?
Write my letter, feel much better, use my fancy patter on the telephone.

When I'm not with you, think of you always, I miss you (I miss those long hot summer nights).
When I'm not with you, think of me always, love you, love you.
Hey boy, where do you get it from? Hey boy, where did you go?
I learned my passion in the good old fashioned school of loverboys.

Dining at the Ritz we'll meet at nine precisely, I will pay the bill, you taste the wine.
Driving back in style, in my saloon will do quite nicely,
just take me back to yours that will be fine (come on and get it).
Ooh love, ooh loverboy, what're doing tonight, hey boy?
Everything's all right, just hold on tight, that's because I'm a good old fashioned loverboy.


Great King Rat (Mercury)

Great King Rat died today, born on the twenty-first of May.
Died syphilis, forty-four on his birthday.
Every second word he swore, yes, he was the son of a whore, always wanted by the law.

Wouldn't you like to know, wouldn't you like to know people?
Great King Rat was a dirty old man and a dirty old man was he.
Now what did I tell you, would you like to see?

Where will I be tomorrow? Will I beg, will I borrow? I don't care, I don't care anyway.
Come on, come on, the time is right, this man is evil and that is right.
I told you, ah, yes, I told him and that's no lie, oh no, no.

Wouldn't you like to know, wouldn't you like to know, wouldn't you like to know?
Great King Rat was a dirty old man and a dirty old man was he.
Now what did I tell you, would you like to see?

Wouldn't you like to know, wouldn't you like to know, people?
Great King Rat was a dirty old man and a dirty old man was he.
Now what did I tell you, would you like to see?

Now listen all you people, put out the good and keep the bad.
Don't believe all you read in the bible.
You sinners get in line, saints you leave far behind. Very soon you're gonna be his disciple.
Don't listen to what Mama says, mot a word, not a word Mama says
or else you'll find yourself being the rival.
The great Lord before he died, knelt sinners by his side
and said "you're going to realize tomorrow."

No I'm not gonna tell you what you already know
cause time and time again, the old man said it all a long time ago.
Come, come on the time is right, this evil man will fight, I told you once before and that's no lie.

Wouldn't you like to know, wouldn't you like to know? Just like I said before.
Great King Rat was a dirty old man and a dirty old man was he.
The last time I tell you, would you like you see?


I Want It Al

Adventure seeker on an empty street, just an alley creeper, light on his feet.
A young fighter screaming, with no time for doubt with the pain and anger, can't see a way out.
It ain't much I'm asking, I heard him say, gotta find me a future, move out of my way.
I want it all, I want it all, I want it all, and I want it now.
I want it all, I want it all, I want it all, and I want it now.

Listen all you people, come gather round,
I gotta get me a game plan, gotta shake you to the ground.
Just give me what I know is mine, people do you hear me, just give me the sign.
It ain't much I'm asking, if you want the truth, here's to the future for the dreams of youth.
I want it all, I want it all, I want it all, and I want it now.
I want it all, I want it all, I want it all, and I want it now.

I'm a man with a one track mind, so much to do in one life time (people do you hear me).
Not a man for compromise and where's and why's and living lies.
So I'm living it all, yes I'm living it all and I'm giving it all, and I'm giving it all.

It ain't much I'm asking, if you want the truth, here's to the future, hear the cry of youth.
I want it all, I want it all, I want it all, and I want it now.
I want it all, I want it all, I want it all, and I want it now…


In Only Seven Days (Deacon)

Monday, start of my holiday, freedom for just one week, feels good to get away, ooh.
Tuesday, I saw her down on the beach, I stood and watched a while
and she looked and smiled at me.
Wednesday, I didn't see her, I hoped that she'd be back tomorrow.

And then on Thursday, my luck had changed.
She stood there all alone, I went and asked her name.
I never thought that this could happen to me in only seven days.
It would take a hundred or more for memories to fade.

I wish Friday would last for ever, I held her close to me, I couldn't bear to leave her there.
Saturday, just twenty four hours, oh no, I'm going back home on Sunday.  Ooh, so sad, alone.


It's Late (May)

You say you love me and I hardly know your name.
And if I say I love you in the candlelight, there's no one but myself to blame.
But there's something inside that's turning my mind away.
Oh, how I could love you if I could let you stay.
It's late, but I'm bleeding deep inside. It's late, is it just my sickly pride?
Too late, even now the feeling seems to slip away.
So late, though I'm crying I can't help but hear you say,
it's late, it's late, it's late but not too late.

The way you love me is the sweetest love around.
But after all this time, the more I'm trying, the more I seem to let you down.
Now you tell me you're leaving and I just can't believe it's true.
Oh, you know that I can love you though you know I can't be true.
Oh, you made me love you, don't tell me that we're through.
It's late, but it's driving me so mad. It's late, but don't try to tell me that it's
too late, save our love, you can't turn out the light.
So late, I've been wrong but I'll learn to be right.
it's late, it's late, it's late but not too late.

I've been so long, you've been so long, we've been so long trying to work it out.
I ain't got long, you ain't got long, we've gotta know what this life's all about.

You're staring at me with suspicion in your eye.
You say what game are you playing? What's this that you're saying? I know that I can’t reply.
If I take you tonight, is it making my life a lie?
Oh, you make me wonder, did I live my life right?
It's late, but it's time to set me free. It's late, but there's no way it has to be.
Too late, so let the fire take our bodies this night. So late, let the waters take our guilt in the tide.
It's late, it's late, it's late, it's late, it's late, it's late, it's late, it's all too late.


Just One Life


I did not know you, our lives never touched till the day they gathered to bid you farewell.
And they painted your picture and as I looked around I felt I saw you in the words and the sound.
Your talent came flowing through the stories they tell
and through the faces of those who loved you so well.
Your life gave them a treasure, a piece of themselves,
something they carry and still serves them well.
Just one life, just one life, just one life that is born and is and is gone, just one life.
And I'm so glad to know you as I know you now.

Perhaps inside you, you were messed up like me.
But to them you were whole and strong, a friend in their need.
And what you left behind you and what swept over me
says that your life's work rolls on and on, a piece of eternity.
Just one life, just one life, just one life that is born and is and is gone, just one life.
Did you ever have the chance to find out what life is all about?

I did not know you, our lives never touched till the day we gathered to say our farewells.


Keep Yourself Alive (May)

I was told a million times of all the troubles in my way,
tried to grow a little wiser, little better every day.
But if I crossed a million rivers, and I rode a million miles,
then I'd still be where I started, bread and butter for a smile.
Well, I sold a million mirrors in a shop in alley way
but I never saw my face in any window any day.
Well, they say your folks are telling you "be a superstar,"
but I tell you just be satisfied and stay right where you are.
Keep yourself alive, keep yourself alive, take you all your time and money, honey you'll survive.

Well I loved a million women in a belladonic haze
and I ate a million dinners brought to me on silver trays.
Give me everything I need to feed my body and my soul,
well, I'll grow a little bigger, maybe that can be my goal.
I was told a million times of all the people in my way
how I had to keep on trying and get better every day.
But if I crossed a million rivers and I road a million miles,
then I'd still be where I started, same as when I started.
Keep yourself alive, c'mon keep yourself alive,
take you all your time and money, honey you'll survive.

Keep yourself alive, keep yourself alive,
take you all your time and a money to keep me satisfied.
Do you think you're better every day? No, I just think I'm two steps nearer to my grave.
Keep yourself alive, c'mon keep yourself alive,
you take your time and take more money, keep yourself alive.
Keep yourself alive, c'mon keep yourself alive, all you people keep yourself alive.
Keep yourself alive, keep yourself alive,
take you all your time and a money to keep me satisfied.
Keep yourself alive, keep yourself alive, all you people keep yourself alive.
Take you all your time and money honey, you will survive, keep you satisfied…


Killer Queen (Mercury)

She keeps Moët et Chandon in her pretty cabinet.
'Let them eat cake,' she says, just like Marie Antoinette.
A built-in remedy for Khruschev and Kennedy, at anytime an invitation you can't decline.

Caviar and cigarettes, well versed in etiquette, extraordinarily nice.
She's a Killer Queen, gunpowder, gelatine, dynamite with a laser beam.
Guaranteed to blow your mind anytime.
Recommended at the price, insatiable an appetite, wanna try?

To avoid complications, she never kept the same address.
In conversation she spoke just like a baroness.
Met a man from China, went down to Geisha Minah
then again, incidentally, if you're that way inclined.

Perfume came naturally from Paris, for cars she couldn't care less, fastidious and precise.
She's a Killer Queen, gunpowder, gelatine, dynamite with a laser beam.
Guaranteed to blow your mind anytime.
Recommended at the price, insatiable an appetite, wanna try?

Drop of a hat, she's as willing as playful as a pussycat
then momentarily out of action, temporarily out of gas
to absolutely drive you wild, wild, she's out to get you.

She's a Killer Queen, gunpowder, gelatine, dynamite with a laser beam.
Guaranteed to blow your mind anytime.
Recommended at the price, insatiable an appetite, wanna try? You wanna try.


Lazing On A Sunday Afternoon (Mercury)

I go out to work on Monday morning, Tuesday I go off to honeymoon.
I'll be back again before it's time for sunny-down, I'll be lazing on a Sunday afternoon.

Bicycling on every Wednesday evening, Thursday I go waltzing to the zoo.
I come from London town, I'm just an ordinary guy, Fridays I go painting in the Louvre.

I'm bound to be proposing on a Saturday night (there he goes again),
I'll be lazing on a Sunday, lazing on a Sunday, lazing on a Sunday afternoon.


Leaving Home Ain't Easy (May)

I take a step outside and I breath the air and I slam the door and I'm on my way.
I won't lay no blame, I won't call you names cause I've made my break
and I won't look back, I've turned my back on those endless games.

I'm all through with ties, I'm all tired of tears, I'm a happy man, don't it look that way?
Shaking dust from my shoes, there's a road ahead and there's no way back home,
Oh, but I have to say, leaving home ain't easy, oh, I never thought it would be easy.
Leaving on your own, oh, is the main thing calling me back?
Leaving home ain't easy on the one you're leaving home.

Stay my love, my love, please stay. Stray my love, what's wrong my love? What's right my love?
Oh, leaving home ain't easy, I thought, how could I think of leaving?
Leaving on your own, still trying to persuade me that
leaving home ain't necessarily the only way.
Leaving home ain't easy but may be the only way.


Let Your Heart Rule Your Head

If you've got time to stay and listen to my story, just a moment of your life is all I need.
Don't say we should be parted because we only just got started.
Let your heart rule your head tonight.

There's a full moon shining on the water, there's a warm breeze blowing off the sea.
And when my pulse starts a racing, I know life is for the tasting,
let your heart rule your head tonight.
Let your heart rule your head, let your heart rule your head, let your heart rule your head tonight.
When your whole world is sinking, come to my way of thinking,
let your heart rule your head tonight.

It's been so long since I put my arms around you and I don't know if it's real or it's a dream.
But don't pussy-foot about it, shout it, just can't live without it.
Let your heart rule your head tonight (everybody).
Let your heart rule your head, let your heart rule your head, let your heart rule your head tonight.
When your whole world is sinking, come to my way of thinking,
let your heart rule your head tonight.

Ooh, you're staring at my face as though I'm crazy when I tell you that I need you every day.
Can't you see that I love you pretty baby? And old time don't ever stop ticking away, yeah.
Well, your Mama don't mind and your Papa don't mind
but you'll never be mine if you're thinking all the time.
We can work it out right when I'm holding you tight.
We can make it tonight because it ain't no crime.
Don't let the moment slip away, don't think about it, do it.

Well, I know that we're in a time of changes and in love there is danger everywhere.
But consider every portion when you've taken your precautions.
Let your heart (let your heart), let your heart (let your heart),
let your heart (let your heart), let your heart, let your heart, let your heart,
Let your heart rule your head, let your heart rule your head, let your heart rule your head tonight.
When your whole world is sinking, come to my way of thinking,
let your heart rule your head tonight. Oh, sing it with me.
Let your heart rule your head, let your heart rule your head, let your heart rule your head tonight.
When your whole world is sinking, come to my way of thinking,
let your heart rule your head tonight. Let your heart rule your head tonight.


Long Away (May)

You might believe in heaven, I would not care to say.
For every star in heaven, there's a sad soul here today.
Wake up in the morning with a good face, stare at the moon all day.
Lonely as a whisper on a star chase, does anyone care anyway?
For all the prayers in heaven, so much of life's this way.

Did we leave our way behind us, such a long, long way behind us?
Who knows when, now who knows where, where the light of day will find us? Look for the day.

Take heart, my friend, we love you, though it seems like you're alone.
A million lights above you smile down upon your home.
Hurry, put your troubles in a suitcase, come let the new child play.
Lonely as a whisper on a star chase, I'm leaving here, I'm long away.
For all the stars in heaven, I would not live, I could not live this way.

Did we leave our way behind us, such a long, long way behind us?
Leave it for some hopeless lane such a long, long way,
such a long, long way, such a long, long way, I'm waiting for, waiting for that day.


Love Of My Life (Mercury)

Love of my life, you've hurt me, you've broken my heart and now you leave me.
Love of my life can't you see?  Bring it back, bring it back,
don't take it away from me, because you don't know what it means to me.

Love of my life, don't leave me, you've taken my love, you now desert me.
Love of my life can't you see? Bring it back, bring it back,
don't take it away from me because you don't know what it means to me.

You won't remember when this is blown over and everything's all by the way,
when I get older, I will be there at your side to remind you how I still love you, still love you.

Back, hurry back,, please bring it back home to me
because you don't know what it means to me.
Love of my life, love of my life…


Love Token

Yeah, oh, let me tell you now. Mama's in love, Papa's in love.
It's such a shame they don't love each other, oh no.
Oh, Papa's in a jam, Mama's throwing pans. The game's up, it's time to run for cover.
Everybody's crying but they can't stop hoping, everybody's looking for the door that's open.
Mama's making heat to keep the old fire smoking, Papa's hanging on to his old love token.

You got love but you ain't got style, you want your freedom but in a while.
You're lost children but you know for sure, you gotta find out who your love is for.

Oh, baby life ain't what it used to be.
You're telling me, not since you've been hanging round here.
Hey, Mama what you screaming for acting like a demon for?
And hey, Mama quit waving them hands in the air? Don't talk to me that way.
Well, I don't see no reason to raise your voice to me.
You put fat in the fire, you got shit for brains.
Well you don't give me comfort and a man's gotta get it somewhere.
Well, fuck you.
Yeah, well.

Mama's hanging on to every word that's spoken but Papa's hanging on to his old love token.
That's what it is. Here it comes babe.
Oh, I don't wanna leave you Mama. Said, I don't wanna leave you Papa.
Long haired women gonna turn you to stone. You can't beat 'em because you need 'em.
You gotta live, you gotta love. You're love token's gotta fit like a glove.
Listen to the story 'bout the dream that's broken. you gotta keep a hold of your old love token.

Oh, I don't wanna leave you Mama (mama mama mama mama mama).
Oh, I don't wanna leave you Papa (papa papa papa papa papa).
Oh, I don't wanna leave, no I don't wanna leave, no I don't wanna leave.
no I don't wanna leave you alone, but I'm gonna have to babe.


Mad The Swine
(Mercury)

Been here before, a long time ago, but this time I wear no sandals.
Ages past I gave all you people food and water.
Three feet tall, so very small, I'm no trouble.
I bring thunder lightning sun and the rain for all the people in the land.

A message of love, I bring you from up above.
All good children gather around, come join your hands and sing along.
They call me mad the swine, I guess I'm mad the swine, I've come to save you, save you.
Mad the swine, mad the swine, so all you people gather around,
hold out your hands and praise the Lord.

I walk upon the water just as before.
I'll help the meek and the mild and believers and the blind and all the creatures great and small.
Let me take you to the river without a fall.
Oh, and then one day you realize, you're all the same within His eyes.
That’s all I've come to say, just like before.
They call me mad the swine, I guess I'm mad the swine, I've come to save you, save you.
Mad the swine, mad the swine, so all you people gather around,
hold out your hands and praise the Lord.

So all you people gather around, hold out your hands and praise the Lord, don't ever fail me.
They call me mad the swine, I guess I'm mad the swine, I've come to save you, save you.
Mad the swine, mad the swine, so all you people gather around,
hold out your hands and praise the Lord, hands and praise the Lord, praise the Lord.
I'll get down on my knees and praise the Lord.


Misfire (Deacon)

Don't you misfire, fill me up with the desire to carry on.
Don't you know honey, that love's a game? It's always a hit or miss, so take your aim.
Got to hold on tight, shoot me out of sight.

Don't you misfire, fill me up with the desire to carry on.
Don't you misfire, fill me up with the desire to carry on.
Your gun is loaded, and pointing my way. There's only one bullet, so don't delay.
Got to time it right, fire me through the night.
Come on, take a shot, fire me higher, don't you miss this time, please don't misfire, misfire.


My Fairy King
(Mercury)

In the land where horses born with eagle wings
and honey bees have lost their strings, they're singing forever, oo yeah.
Lions den with fallow deer and rivers made from wines so clear flow on and on forever.
Dragons fly like sparrow's through the air and baby lambs where Samson dares to go on.

He rules the air and turns the tides, ooh yeah, he guides the wings.
My fairy King can see things that are not there for you and me my Fairy King
can do right and nothing wrong.

Then came man to savage in the night, to run like thieves and to kill like knives,
to take away the power from the magic hand, to bring about the ruin to the promised land.
They turn the milk into sour like the blue in the blood of my veins (why can't you see it).
Fire burning in hell with the cry of screaming pain. Son of heaven, set me free and let me go.
Sea turns dry no salt from sand, seasons fly no helping hand.
Teeth don't shine like pearls for poor men's eyes.

Someone, someone just drained the color from my wings, broken my fairy circle ring
and shamed the king in all his pride, changed the winds and wronged the tides.
Mother mercury, look what they've done to me, I cannot run, I cannot hide.


My Melancholy Blues
(Mercury)

Another party's over and I'm left cold sober. My baby left me for somebody new.
I don't wanna talk about it, want to forget about it, wanna be intoxicated with that special brew.
So come and get me, let me get in that sinking feeling that says my heart is on an all time low,
so don't expect me to behave perfectly and wear that sunny smile.
My guess is I'm in for a cloudy & overcast, don't try and stop me
cause I'm heading for that stormy weather soon.
I'm causing a mild sensation with this new occupation.
I'm permanently glued to this extraordinary mood, so now move over
and let me take over with my, melancholy blues.

I'm causing a mild sensation with this new occupation,
I'm in the news, just getting used to this new exposure,
so come into my enclosure and meet my melancholy blues.
