Keep Yourself Alive

I was told a million times

Of all the troubles in my way

Tried to grow a little wiser

Little better ev'ry 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

Now they say your folks are telling you

To be a super star

But I tell you just be satisfied

Stay right where you are

Keep yourself alive, keep yourself alive

It'll take all your time and a money

Honey you'll survive

Well I've loved a million women

In a belladonic haze

And I ate a million dinners

Brought to me on silver trays

Give me ev'rything I need

To feed my body and my soul

And 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 ev'ry day

But if I crossed a million rivers

And I rode a million miles

Then I'd still be where I started

Same as where I started

Keep yourself alive, keep yourself alive

It'll take all your time and a money honey

You'll survive

Keep yourself alive (2 times)

It'll take all your time and money

To keep me satisfied

Do you think you're better ev'ry day?

No I just think I'm two steps nearer to my grave

Keep Yourself Alive

Keep yourself alive mm

You take your time and take more money

Keep yourself alive (3 times)

All you people keep yourself alive

Keep yourself alive (2 times)

It'll take all your time and a money

To keep me satisfied

Keep yourself alive (2 times)

All you people keep yourself alive

Take you all your time and money honey

You will survive

Keep you satisfied (2 times)



Doing All Right


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?

Chasing joy or sinking in sorrow

Anyway, I should be doing all right

Doing all right

Simply waiting for the sign

Looking 'round to find the words to say

Sitting waiting for the skies to clear

All the time you're away

Sitting waiting for the sign

And anyway I got so far

Yesterday my life was in ruin

Now today God knows what I'm doing

Anyway I should be doing all right

Doing all right (twice)


Great King Rat

Freddie Mercury

5:42

Great King Rat died today

Born on the twenty first of May

Died syphillis forty four on his birthday

Every second word he swore

Yes he was a 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 dirty old man was he

Now what did I tell you

Would you like to see?

Now hear this

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 you

And that's no lie oh no 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?

Show me

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 down 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

Not 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 gonna 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 on 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 to see?


My Fairy King


In the land where horses born with eagle wings

And honey bees have lost their stings

There's a singing forever

Lion's den with fallow deer

And rivers made from wines so clear

Flow on and on forever

Dragons fly like sparrows throught the air

And baby lambs where Samson dares

To go on on on on on

1st voice

My fairy king can see things

2nd voice

He rules the air and turns the tides

1st voice

That are not there for you and me

2nd voice

Ooh yeah he guides the winds

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 of 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 burnin' in hell with the cry of screaming pain

Son of heaven set me free and ley me go

Sea turn dry no salt from sand

Seasons fly no helping hand

Teeth don't shine like pearls for poor man's eyes

Someone someone has 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 mercury

Look what they've done to me

I cannot run I cannot hide


Liar

The Night Comes Down


When I was young it came to me
And I could see the sun breakin
Lucy was high and so was I dazzling
Holding the world inside
Once I believed in everyone
Everyone and anyone can see
Oh oh the night comes down
And I get afraid of losing my way
Oh oh the night comes down
Oooh and its dark again
Once I could laugh with everyone
Once I could see the good in me
The black and the white distinctively coloring
Holding the world inside
Now all the world is grey to me
Nobody can see you gotta believe it
Oh oh the night comes down
And I get afraid of losing my way
Oh oh the night comes down
Oooh and it's dark again
And it's dark again (2 times)


Modern Times Rock 'N' Roll


Had to make do with a worn out rock and roll scene
the old bop is getting tired need a rest
Well you know what I mean
Fifty eight that was great
But it's over now and thats all
Something harder's coming up
Gonna really knock a hole in the wall
Gonna hit ya grab ya hard
Make you feel ten feet tall
Well I hope that a big new babys
gonna come along soon
You don't know it could happen any old rainy afternoon
With the temperature down
And the jukebox blowin no fuse
And my musical life's feelin
Like a long Sunday School cruise
And you know theres only one thing
Every single body can use
Yeah listen to me baby
Let me tell you what its all about
Modern times rock and roll
Modern times rock and roll
Get your high heeled guitar star boots and some groovy clothes
Get a hair piece on your chest
And a ring through your nose
Find a nice little man who says
He's gonna make you a really big star
Stars in your eyes ants in your pants
Think you should go far
Everybody in this bum suckings world's
Gonna know just who you are
Look out
Modern times rock and roll


Son and Daughter


I want you
Tried to be a son and daughter rolled into one
You said you'd equal any man for having your fun
Now didn't you feel suprised to find
The cap just didn't fit?
The world expects a man
To buckle down and to shovel shit
What'll you do for loving
When it's only just begun?
I want you to be a woman
Tried to be a teacher and fisher of men
An equal people preacher
Will you lead us all the same?
Well I travelled all around the world
A brand new word for day
Watching the time mustn't linger behind
Pardon me I have to get away
What'll you think of heaven
If it's back from where you came?
I want you to be a woman


Jesus


And then I saw Him in the crowd
A lot of people had gathered around Him
The beggers shouted and the lepers called Him
The old man said nothing
He just stared about Him
All going down to see the Lord Jesus
All going down to see the Lord Jesus
All going down
Then came a man before His feet he fell
Unclean said the leper and rang his bell
Felt the palm of a hand touched his head
Go now go now you're a new man instead
All going down to see the Lord Jesus
All going down to see the Lord Jesus
All going down
It all began with the three wise men
Followed a star took them to Bethleham
And made it heard throughout the land
Born was the leader of man
All going down to see the Lord Jesus
All going down to see the Lord Jesus
All going down
(twice)

Seven Seas of Rhye


Fear me you lords and lady preachers
I descend upon your earth from the skies
I command your very souls you unbelievers
Bring before me what is mine
The seven seas of rhye
Can you hear me you peers and privvy counselors
I stand before you naked to the eyes
I will destroy any man who dares abuse my trust
I swear that you'll be mine
The seven seas of rhye
Sister - I live and die for you
Mister - Do and I'll die
You are mine, I possess you
I belong to you forever
Storm the master marathon I'll fly through
By flash and thunder fire and I'll survive, I'll survive,
I'll survive
Then I'll defy the laws of nature and come out alive
Then I'll get you
Be gone with you, you shod and shady senators
Give out the good, leave out the bad evil cries
I challenge the might titan and his troubadours
And with a smile
I'll take you to the seven seas of rhye...
