Death on two legs
(Dedicated to...)
(Freddie 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 heard 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.

I'm in love with my car (Roger Taylor)
    The machine of a dream, such a clean machine, With the pistons a pumpin', and the hubcaps all gleam. When Iím holding your wheel, All I hear is your gear, When my hand's on your grease gun, Oh it's like a disease son, I'm in love with my car, gotta feel for my automobile, Get a grip on my boy racer rollbar, Such a thrill when your radials squeal. Told my girl I just had to forget her, Rather buy me a new cartburettor, So she made tracks sayin' this is the end now, Cars don't talk back they're just four wheeled friends now, When Iím holding your wheel, All I hear is your gear, When Iím cruisin' in overdrive, Don't have to listen to no run of the mill talk jive, I'm in love with my car, gotta feel for my automobile, I'm in love with my car, string back gloves in my automolove!

Ď39 (Brian May)
    In the year of '39 assembled here the volunteers In the days when lands were few Here the ship sailed out into the blue and sunny morn The sweetest sight ever seen. And the night followed dau And the story tellers day That the score brave souls inside For many a lonely day sailed across the milky seas Ne'er looked back, never feared, never cried. Don't you hear my call though you're many years away Don't you hear me calling you Write your letters in the sand For the day I take your hand In the land that our grandchildren knew. In the year of '39 came a ship in from the blue The volunteers came home that day And they bring good news of a world so newly born Though their hearts so heavily weigh For the earth is old and grey, to a new home we'll away But my love this cannot be For so many years have gone though Iím older but a year Your mother's eyes in your eyes cry to me. Don't you hear my call though you're many years away Don't you hear me calling you All the letters in the sand cannot heal me like your hand For my life Still ahead Pity me.

The prophet's song (Brian May)
    Oh oh people of earth Listen to the warning The seer he said Beware the storm that gathers here Listen to the wise man. I dreamed I saw on a moonlit stair Spreading his hands on the multitude there A man who cried for a love gone stale And ice cold hearts of charity bare. I watched as fear took the old men's gaze Hopes of the yound in troubled graves I see no day, I heard him say So grey is the face of every mortal. Oh oh people of earth Listen to the warning The prophet he said For soon the cold of night will fall Summoned by your own hand. Oh oh children of the land Quicken to the new life Take my hand Fly and find the new green bough Return like the white dove. He told of death as a done white haze Taking the lost and the unloved babe Late too late all the wretches run

Love Of My Life (Freddie Mercury)
    Love of my life - you hurt me, You 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 stolen 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 by your side to remind you how I still love you - still love you. Back - hurry back, Don't take it away from me, because you don't know what it means to me - Love of my life Love of my life...

Good Company (Brian May)
    Take good core 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 and Sally J. The girl from number four And very soon I begged her won't you Keep me Company Now marriage is an insinuation sure My wife and I our needs and nothing more All my friends by a year By and by disappear 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 Sall as we Pated 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

Bohemian Rhapsody (Freddie 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, Any way 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, ooh, 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, ev'rybody, I've got to go, Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth. Mama, ooh, I don't want to die, I sometimes wish I'd never been born at all. I see a little silhouetto of a man, Scaramouche, Scaramouche, will you do the Fandango. Thunderbolt and lightning, very, very fright'ning 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 me go.) Will not let you go. (Let me go.) Will not let you go. (Let me go.) Ah. No, no, no, no, no, no, no. (Oh 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.
