Queen lyrics - Album: Queen [1973]

Keep Yourself Alive

I was told a million times

Of all the troubles in my way

How I had to keep on trying

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

Well they say your folks are telling you

To be a super star

But I tell you just be satisfied

To stay right where you are

Keep yourself alive keep yourself alive

It'll take you 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

Still be where I started

Keep yourself alive keep yourself alive

It'll take you all your time and money honey

You'll survive

Keep yourself alive

Keep yourself alive

It'll take you 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 your money

Keep yourself alive

Keep yourself alive

Keep yourself alive

All you people keep yourself alive

Keep yourself alive

Keep yourself alive

It'll 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

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 drinking in sorrow

Anyway I should be doing all right

Doing all right

Simply waiting for the sign

Waiting here to find the words to say

Sitting waiting all this time here

All the time your away

Sitting waiting for the sign

And anyway I got so far

Yesterday my life was in ruin

Now today I've learned what I'm doing

Anyway I should be doing all right

Doing all right

Great King Rat


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 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 or will I borrow?

I don't care I don't care anyway

Come on come on the time 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?

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 h

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 realise 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

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 singing forever

Lion's den with fallow deer

And rivers made from wine so clear

Flow on and on forever

Dragons fly like sparrows thru' the air

And baby lambs where Samson dares

To go on on on on on on

My fairy king can see things He rules the air and turns the tides

That are not there for you and me Ohh 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 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 burnin' in hell with the cry of screaming pain

Son of heaven set me free and let me go

Sea turn dry no salt from sand

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

Someone someone has drained the colour 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 t I cannot run I cannot hide

Liar


I have sinned dear Father Father I have sinned

Try and help me Father

Won't you let me in? Liar

Nobody believes me Liar

Why don't they leave me alone?

Sire I have stolen stolen many times

Raised my voice in anger

When I know I never should

Liar oh ev'rybody deceives me

Liar why don't you leave me alone?

Liar I have sailed the seas

Liar from Mars to Mercury

Liar I have drunk the wine

Liar time after time

Liar you're lying to me

Liar you're lying to me

Father please forgive me

You know you'll never leave me

Please will you direct me in the right way

Liar liar liar liar

Liar that's what they keep calling me

Liar liar liar

Listen are you gonna listen?

Mama I'm gonna be your slave

All day long

Mama I'm gonna try behave

All day long

Mama gonna be your slave

All day long

I'm gonna serve you till your dying day

All day long

I'm gonna keep you till you dying day

All day long

I'm gonna kneel down by your side and pray

All day long and pray

All day long and pray

All day long all day long all day long

All day long all day long all day long

All day long all day long all day long

Liar liar they never let you win

Liar liar everything you do is sin

Liar nobody believes you

Liar they bring you down before you begin

Now let me tell you this

Now you know you could be dead before they let you...

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 it's dark again

Once I could laugh with everyone

Once I could see the good to me

Th 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

And it's dark again

Modern Times Rock 'n' Roll


Had to make do with a worn out rock and roll scene

The old bop is gettin' tired need a rest

Well you know what I mean

Fifty eight that was great

But it's over now and That's all

Somethin' harder's coming up

Gonna really knock a hole in the wall

Gonna hit ya grab you hard

Make you feel ten feet tall

Well I hope this baby's gonna come along soon

You don't know it could happen any ol' rainy afternoon

With the temperature down

And the juke box blowin' no fuse

And my musical life's feelin

Like a long Sunday School cruise

And you know there's one thing

Every single body could use

Yeah listen to me baby

Let me tell you what it's all about

Modern times rock and roll

Modern times rock and roll

Get you high heeled guitar 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 real big star

Stars in your eyes and ants in your pants

Think you should go far

Everybody in this bum sucking world

Gonna know just who you are

Look out

Modern times rock and roll

Son And Daughter


Tried to be your son and daughter rolled into one

You said you'd equal any man for having your fun

Now didn't you feel surprise 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 its only just begun?

I want you to be a woman

Tried to be a teacher and a fisher of men

An equal Will you lead us all the same?

Well I travelled around the world

To find 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 round 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 touch 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 Bethelehem

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

It all began with the three wise men

Followed a star took them to Bethelehem

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
