Queen lyrics - Album: Queen - II [1974]

Father To Son

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

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?

Ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba

Now we hand it on

But I've heard it all before

Take this letter that I give you

Take it soney 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 you ear

From father to son

Funny you don't hear

A single word that I say

But my letter to you

Will stay by my 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

Word goes around

Father to son to son

Kings will be crowned

Earth goes around

Father to son to son

Joyful the sound

Word goes around

Father to son to son

Kings will be crowned

Earth goes around

Father to son to son

White Queen (As It Began)


So sad her eyes smiling dark eyes

So sad her eyes as it began

On such a breathless night as this

Upon my brow the lightest kiss

I walked alone

And all around the air did sway

May lady soon will stir this way

In sorrow known

The white queen walks

And the night grows pale

Stars of lovingness in her hair

Needing unheard pleading one word

So sad my eyes she cannot see

How did thee fare what have thee seen

The mother of the willow green

I call her name

And 'neath her window have I stayed

I love the footsteps that she made

And when see came

White queen how my heart did ache

And dry my lips no word would make

So still I wait

My goddess hear my darkest fear

I speak too late

It's for evermore that I wait

Dear friends goodbye

No tears in my eyes

So sad it ends as it began

Some Day One Day


You never heard my song before

The music was too loud

But now I think you hear me well

For now we both know how

No star can light our way

In this cloud of dark and fear

But someday one day

Funny how he pages turn

And hold us in between

A misty castle waits for you

And you shall be a queen

Today the cloud it hangs

Over us and all is grey

But someday one day

When I was you and you were me

And we were very young

Together took us nearly there

The rest may not be sung

So still the cloud it hangs

Over us and we're alone

But someday one day

We'll come home

The Loser In The End


Mama's got a problem

She don't know what to say

Her little baby boy

Has just left home today

She's got to be the loser in the end

She's got to be the loser in the end

Misuse her and you'll lose her as a friend

She's Ma on who you can always depend ooh

She washed and fed and clothed and cared

For nearly twenty years

And all she gets is Goodbye Ma

And the night times for her tears

She's got to be the loser in the end

She's got to be the loser in the end

Misuse her and you'll lose her as a friend

She's Ma on whom you can always depend ooh

So listen mothers everywhere

To just one mother's son

You'll get forgotten on the way

If you don't let them have their fun

Forget regrets and just remember

It's not so long since you were young

You're bound to be the loser in the end

You're bound to be the loser in the end

They'll choose their new shoes

That's not far to bend

You're Ma on whom they can always depend ooh ooh

Ogre Battle


Now once upon a time

An old man told me a fable

When the piper is gone

And the soup is cold upon the table

And if the black crow fl

ies

To find a new destination

That is the sign

Come tonight

Come to the ogre site

Come to ogre battle fight

He gives a great big cry

And he can swallow up the ocean

With mighty tongue he catches flies

And the palm of his hand incredible size

One great big eye

Has to focus in your direction

Now the battle is on

Yeah yeah yeah

Come tonight

Come to the ogre site

Come to ogre battle fight

Ah ah ah ah ah

The ogre en are still inside

The two way mirror mountain

You gotta keep down

Right out of site

You can't see in but they can see out

Keep a look out

The ogre men are comming out

>From the two way mirror mountain

They're running up behind

And they're comming all about

Can't go east 'cause you gotta go south

Ogre men are going home

The great big fight is over

Bugle blow that trumpet cry

Ogre Battle lives for ever more

You can come along

You can come along

Come to ogre battle

The Fairy Feller's Master Stroke


He's a fairy feller

Ah ah the fairy folk have gathered

Round the new moon's shine

To see the feller crack a nut

At night's noon time

To swing his axe he swears

As he climbs he dares

To deliver the master stroke

Ploughman wagoner will and types

Politician with sentorial pipe

He's a dilly dally oh

Pedagogue squinting wears a frown

And a satyr peers under lady's gown

He's a dirty fellow

What a dirty laddie-oh

Tatterdemalion and the junketer

There's a thief and a dragonfly trumpeter

He's my hero ah

Fairy dandy tickling the fancy

Of his lady friend

The nymph in yellow can we see the master stroke

What a quaere fellow

Ah ah ah ah ah ah

Ah ah ah ah ah ah

Soldier sailor tinker tailor ploughboy

Waiting to hear the sound

And the arch magician presides

He is the leader

Oberon and Titania watched by a harridan

Mab is the queen and there's a good apothecary man

Come to say hello

Fairy dandy tickling the fancy

Of his lady friend

The nymph in yellow can we see the master stroke

What a quaere fellow

The ostler stares with hands on his knees

Come on mister feller

Crack it open if you please

Nevermore


(Mercury)

There's no living in my life anymore

The seas have gone dry

And the rain's stopped falling

Please don't you cry anymore

Can't you see

Listen to the breeze

And whisper to me please

Don't seed me to the path of nevermore

Even in the valley's down below

Where the rays of the sun

Were so warm and tender

Now haven't anything to grow

Can't you see?

Why did you have to leave me?

Why did you deceive me?

You sent me to the path of nevermore

When you say you didn't love me anymore

Ah ah nevermore nevermore

The March Of The Black Queen


Do you mean it do you mean it do you mean it

Why don't you mean it why do I follow you

And where do I go?

Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah

You've never seen nothing like it

No never in you're life

Like going up to heaven

And then coming back alive

Let me tell you all about it

Oooh give a little time to choose

Water babies singing in a lily pool delight

Blue powder monkeys praying in the dead of the night

Here comes the Black Queen poking in the pile

Fi fo the Black Queen marching single file

Take this take that bring them down to size

Put them in the cellar with the naughty boys

Little nigger sugar then a rub-a-dub-a-baby oil

Black on black on every finger nail and toe

We've only begun - begun

Make this make that keep making all that noise

Ooh march to the Black Queen

Now I've got a belly full

You can be my sugar baby

You can be my honey chile

A voice from behind me reminds me

Spread out your little wings you are an angel

Remember to deliver with the speed of light

A little bit of love and joy

Everything you do bears a will

And a why and a wherefore

Each little bit of love and joy

In each and every man lies a man

And very soon he'll deceive and discover

But even till the end of his life

He'll bring a little love

Ah ah ah ah ah

I reign with my left hand I rule with my right

I'm lord of all darkness I'm queen of the night

I've got the power now to do

The march of the Black Queen

My life is in your hands I'll fo and I'll fie

I'll be what you make me I'll do what you like

I'll

be a bad boy I'll be your bad boy

I'll do the march of the Black Queen

Ah ah ah ah ah

Walking true to style she's vulgar abuse and vile

The Black Queen tattoes all her pies

She boils and she bakes

And she never dots her I's

La la la la la la la la la la la la

La la la la la

Forget your sing-a-longs and your lullabies

Surrender to the city of the fireflies

Dance with the devil in beat with the band

To hell with all you hand in hand

But now it's time to be gone

La la la la forever forever

Ah ah ah ah ah

Funny How Love Is


Funny how love is everywhere just look and see

Funny how love is anywhere you're bound to be

Funny how love is every song in every key

Funny how love is comming home in time for tea

Funny funny funny oh

Funny how love is the end of lies

When the truth begins tomorrow comes

Tomorrow brings love

In the shape of things

That's what love is that's what love is

Funny how love can break your heart so suddenly

Funny how love came tumbling down with Adam and Eve

Funny how love is running wild and feeling free

Funny hoe love is comming home in time for tea

Funny funny funny oh

>From the earth below to the heavens above

That's how far and funny is love

At any time anywhere

If you gotta make love do it everywhere

That's what love is that's what love is

Funny how love is everywhere just look and see

Funny how love is anywhere you're bound to be

Funny how love is every song in every key

Funny how love is when you gotta hurry

'Cause you're late for tea

Funny funny funny oh

Funny how love is tomorrow comes tomorrow brings

Tomorrow brings love in the shape of things

At any time anywhere

If you gotta make love do it everywhere

That's what love is that't what love is

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 privy councillors

I stand before you naked to the eyes

I will destroy any man who dares abuse my trust

I swear that y

ou'll be mine

At the seven seas of Rhye

Sister I live and lie for you

Mister do and I'll die

You are mine I possess you

Belong [or Make love] to you forever

Storm the master marathon I'll fly through

By flash and thunder fire I'll survive

I'll survive I'll survive

Then I'll defy the laws of nature

And come out alive

Begone with you you shod and shady senators

Give out [or you] the good and leave out the bad evil cries

I challenge the mighty titan and his troubadours

And with a smile

I'll take you to the seven seas of Rhye
