Queen lyrics - Album: A Day at the Races [1976]

Tie Your Mother Down

(May)

Get your party down

Get your pigtail down

Get your heart beatin' baby

Got my timin' right

Got my act all tight

It's gotta be tonight my little

School babe

Your mamma say's you don't

and your Daddy say's you won't

And I'm boilin' up inside

Ain't no way I'm gotta lose out this time

Tie your mother down

Tie your mother down

Lock your Daddy out of doors

I don't need him nosin' around

Tie your mother down

Tie your mother down

Give me all your love tonight

You're such a dirty louse

Go get outta my house

That's all I ever got from your

Family ties, in fack I don't think I ever heard

A single little civil word from those guys

But you know I gon't give a light

I'm gonna make out all right

I've got a sweetheart hand

To put a stop to all that

Grousin' an' sprin'

Tie your mother down

Tie your mother down

Take your little brother swimmin'

With a brick (that's all right)

Tie your mother down

Tie your mother down

Or you ain't no friend of mine

Your mamma and your Daddy gonna

Plague me till a die

Why can't they understand I'm just a

Peace lovin' guy

Tie your mother down

Tie your mother down... etc. etc.

You Take My Breath Away


(Mercury)

Look into my eyes and you'll see

I'm the only one

You've captured my love

Stolen my heart

Changed my life

Everytime you make a move

You destroy my mind

And the way you touch

I lose control and shiver deep inside

You take my breath away

You can reduce me to tears

With a single sigh

Every breath that you take -

Any sound that you make

Is a whisper in my ear

I could give up all my life for just one kiss

I would surely die

If you dismiss me from your love

You take my breath away

So please don't go

Don't leave me here all by myself

I get ever so lonely from time to time

I will find you

Anywhere you go, I'll be right behind you

Right untill the ends of the earth

I'll get no sleep till I find you to tell you

That you just take my breath away

I will find you

Anywhere you go, I'll be right behind you

Right until the ends of the earth

I'll get no sleep till I find you to

tell you when I've found you -

I love you

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 moming 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 a long

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 heven

I would not live

I could not live this way

Did we leave our way behind us

Such a long way behind us

Leave it for same hopeless lane

Shuch a long long way

Shuch a long long way

Shuch a long long way

I'm looking for

Still looking for that day

The Millionaire Waltz


(Mercury)

Bring out the charge of the love brigade

There is spring in the air once again

Drink to the sound of the song parade

There is music and love everywhere

Give a little love to me

Take a little love from me, I want to share it with you

I feel like a millionaire

Once we were mad, we were happy

We spent all our days holding hands together

Do you remember, my love

How we danced and played

In the rain we laid

Could stay there, forever and ever

Now I'm sad

You are so far away

I sit counting the hours day by day

Come back to me, how I long for your love

Come back to me - be happy like we used to be

Come back to me, oh my love

How I long for your love - won't you come back to me, yeah.

My fine friend - take me wiz you unt love me forever -

My fine friend - forever - ever

Bring out the charge of the love brigade

There is spring in the air once again

Drink to the sound of the song parade

There is music and love everywhere

Give a little love to me

Take a little love from me, I want to share it with you

Come back, come back to me make me feel -

like a millionaire

You And I


(Deacon)

Music is playing in the darkness

And a lantern goes swinging by

Shadows flickering

My heart's jittering

Just you and I

Not tonight

Come tomorrow

When everything's sunny and bright

No No No

Come tomorrow

Cause then we'll be waiting for the moonlight

We'll go walking in the darkness

walking in the moonlight

Loughter tinging in the darkness

People drinking for day gone by

Time don't mean a thing

When you're by my side

Please stay a while

You know I never could foresee the future years

You know I never could see where life was leading me

But will we be together for ever,

What will my love, can't you see that I just don't know

No no not tonight

Come tomorrow

When everything's gonna be alright

Wait and see

If tomorrow

We'll be happy as we're feeling tonight

I can hear the music in the darkness

Floating softly to where to lie

No moro questions now

Let's enjoy tonight

Just you and I

Just you and I

Somebody To Love


(Mercury)

Can anybody find me somebody to love

Each morning I get up I die a little

Can barely stand on my feet

Take a look in the mirror and cry

Lord what you're doing to me

I have spent all my years in beliving you

But I just can't get no relief, Lord!

Somebody, somebody

Can anybody find me somebody to love?

I work hard every day of my life

I work till I ache my bones

At the end I take home my hard earned pay all on my own -

I get down on my kness

And I start to pray

Till the tears run down from my eyes

Lord - somebody - somebody

Can anybody find me - somebody to love?

(He works hard)

Everyday - I try and I try and I try -

But everybody want to put me down,

They say I'm goin' crazy

They say I got a lot of water in my brain

Got no common sence

I got nobody left to believe

Yeah - Yeah yeah yeah

Oh Lord

Somebody - somebody

Can anybody find me somebody to love?

Got no feel, I got no rhythm

I just keep losing my beat

I'm OK, I'm alright

Ain't gonna face no defeat

I just gotta get out of this prison cell

Someday I'm gonna be free, Lord!

Find me somebody to love

Find me somebody to love ... etc.

Can anybody find me somebody to love?

White Man


(May)

I'm a simple man

With a simple name

From this soil my people came

On this soil remain

Oh yeah...

And we made us our shoes

And we trod soft on the land

But the immigrant built roads

On our blood and sand

Oh yeah...

White man, white man

Don't you see the light behind your blackened skies

White man, white man

You took away sight to blind my simple eyes

White man, white man

Where you gonna hide

From the hell you've made?

Oh the red man knows war

With his hands and his knives

On the bible you shore

Fought your battle with lies

Oh yeah...

Leave my body in shame

Leave my soul in disgrance

But by every God's name

Say your prayers for your race

White man, white man

Our country was green and all our rivers wide

White man, white man

You came with a gun and soon our children died

White man, white man

Don't you give a light for the blood you've shed?

What is left of your dream?

Just the words on your stone

A man who learned how to teach

Then forget how to learn.

Good Old-Fashioned Lover Boy


(Mercury)

I can dim the lights and sing you song 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 you doin' tonight, hey boy -

Set my alarm, turn on my charm

That's because I'm a good old fashioned loverboy

Ooh let me feel your heartbeat (grow faster, faster)

Ooh 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 you doin' tonight, hey boy

Write my letter

Feel much better

I'll use my fancy patter on the telephone

When I'm not with you

I think of you always

I miss you -

(I miss whose long hot summer nights)

When I'm not with you

Think of me always

I love you - love you

Hey boy where do you get in from

Hey boy where did you go?

I learned my passions in the good old fashioned school of loverboys -.

Dining at the Ritz we'll meet at nine precisely

I will pag 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 you doin' tonight, hey boy -

Everything's all right

Just hold on tight

That's because I'm good old fashioned loverboy

Drowse


(Taylor)

It's the sad - eyed, goodbye, yesterday moments I remember.

It's the bleak street, weak - kneed partings I recall.

It's the mistier mist

The hasier days

The brighter sun

And the easier lays

There's all the more reason for laughing and crying

When you're younger and life isn't too hard at all.

It's the fantastic drowse of the afternoon Sundays

That bored you to rages of tears

The unending pleadings, to waste all your good times

In thoughts of your middle ages years

It's a vertical hold, all the things that you're told

For the everyday hero at all turns to zero.

And there's all the more reason for living or dying

When you're young and your troubles are all very small

Out here on the street

We'd gather and meet

And scuff up the sidewarkwith endlessly restless feet

Half of the time

We'd broaden our minds

More in the poolhall than we did in schoolhall

With the downtown chewing-dum bums

Watching the nightlife, the lights and the fun.

Never wanted to be the boy next door,

Always thought I'd be something more,

But it ain't easy for downtown boy,

It ain't easy at all,

Thinkin' it right, doin' it wrong

It's easier from an armchair,

Waves of afternatives wast at my sleepiness,

Have my eggs poached for breakfast I guess.

Teo Torriate (Let Us Cling Together)


(May)

When I'm gone

Don't stop to wonder if I never think of you

The same moon shines

The same wind blows

For both of us, and time is but a papermoon...

be not gone

Though I'm gone

It's just as though I hold the flower that touches you

A new life grows

The blossom knows

There's no one else could warm my heart as mush as you...

be not gone

Let us cling together as the years go by

Oh my love, my love

In the quiet of the night

Let our candle always burn

Let us never lose the lessons we have learned

Teo Torriatte konomama iko

Aisuruhito yo

Shizukana yoi ni

Hikario tomoshi

Itoshiki oshieo idaki

Hear my song

Still think of me the way you've come to think of me

The nights grow long

But dreams live on

Just close your pretty eyes and you can be with me...

dream on

Teo Torriatte konomama iko

Aisuruhito yo

Shizukana yoi ni

Hikario tomoshi

Itoshiki oshieo idaki

When I'm gone

They'd say we're all fools and we don't understand

Oh be strong

Don't turn your heart

You're all

We're all -

For all

For always

Let us cling together as the years go by

Oh my love, my love

In the quiet of the night

Let our candle always burn

Let us never lose the lessons we have learned

ed you to rages of tears

The unending pleadings, to waste all your good times

In thoughts of your middle ages yea
