You break the law and you breach
You cool my brain till it hurts
All my money, and you want more

Misguided old mule
With your pigheaded rules
And 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 heart 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

She keeps Moet Et Chandon
In her pretty cabinet

Just like Marie Antoinette
A built in remedy
For Kruschev and Kennedy
At anytime an invitation
You can't decline

Caviar and cigarettes
Well versed in etiquette
Extraordinarily nice
She's a killer queen
Gunpowder, gelatine
Dynamite with a laser beam
Guaranteed to blow your mind
Anytime

Recommended at the price
Insatiable an appetite
Wanna try?

To avoid complications
She never kept the same address
In conversation
She spoke just like a baroness
Met a man from China
Went down to Geisha Minah
Then again incidentally
If you're that way inclined

Perfume came naturally from Paris
For cars she couldn't care less
Fastidious and precise
She's a killer queen
Gunpowder, gelatine
Dynamite with a laser beam
Guaranteed to blow your mind
Anytime

Recommended at the price
Insatiable an appetite
Wanna try

I'm in love with my car (oh yeah)
Gotta feel for my automobile
Get a grip on my boy racer rollbar

Used to be your pride and joy
Used to take me dancing
Just like any other boy
But now you've found another partner
You left me like a broken toy
Sure did

Well, it's someone else you're taking
Someone else you're playing to, yeah
Honey, though I'm aching
Know just what I have to do, right
If I can't have you when I'm waking
I'll go to sleep and dream I'm with you
That's right, that's right

Oh, take me, take me
Take me to the dreamer's ball
I'll be right on time (yeah)
And I'll dress so fine (oh yeah)
You're gonna love me when you see me
I won't have to worry
Take me, take me
Promise not to wake me 'til it's morning
And it's all been through, yeah

Hey
Yeah
Yeah, yeah

Right down that 42nd street
Way down, down, downtown dreamer's town

So, take me, take me
Take me I'm your play thing now, sure
You make my life worthwhile
With the slightest smile
You destroy me with the barely
Perceptible whisper
Gently take me
Remember I'll be dreaming of my baby
At the dreamer's ball

In the days when the lands were few
And the ship sailed out into the blue and misty morn
The sweetest sight ever seen

And the night followed day
And the story tellers say
That the score brave souls inside
For so 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

Ah, ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah

In the year of '39 a simple ship came from the blue
Volunteers came home that day
And they bring good news from a world so newly born
Though their hearts so heavily weigh
Now the earth is old and grey, to a knew home we'll away
But my love this cannot be
For so many years have gone now I'm older but a year
Your mothers 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
Write your letters in the sand for the day I take your hand
In the land that our grandchildren knew

Don't you hear my call though you're many years away
Don't you hear me calling you
All your letters in the sand
Cannot heal me like your hand
For my life still ahead pity me

Oh, oh, ohh

Lyrics:
Freddie: This is called Spread Your Wings

Sammy was low
Just watching the show
Over and over again
He knew it was time
He'd made up his mind
To leave his dead life behind
His boss said to him

Boy you'd better begin
To get those crazy notions right out of your head
Sammy, who do you think that you are?
You should've been sweeping up the Emerald Bar

Spread your wings and fly away, sing it
Fly away, far away
Spread your little wings and fly away
Far away, far away
Pull yourself together
'Cos you know you should do better
That's because you're a free man

He spends his evenings alone in his hotel room
Keeping his thoughts to himself, he'd be leaving soon
Wishing he was miles and miles and miles away
Nothing in this world, nothing, could make him stay

Since he was small
He had no luck at all
Nothing came easy to him
Now it was time
He'd made up his mind
This could be my last chance

His boss said to him
Now listen boy
You're always dreaming
You've got no real ambition, you won't get very far
Sammy who, who do you think you are?
You should have been sweeping up the Emerald Bar

So honey (spread your wings), come on (and fly away), that's good
Fly away, far away (far away)
Oh, spread your little wings and fly away
(Fly away, far away)

Ooh, pull yourself together
'Cos you know
You know you know you know
You know should do better
That's because you're a free man

So come on honey, come on

Happy little day, Jimmy went away
Met his little Jenny on a public holiday
A happy pair they made, so decorously laid
'Neath the gay illuminations all along the promenade
It's so good to know there's still a little magic in the air
I'll weave my spell

Jenny will you stay, tarry with me pray
Nothing 'ere need come between us tell me love, what do you say
Oh no I must away to my mum in disarray
If my mother should discover how I spent my holiday
It would be of no avail to talk of magic in the air
I'll weave my spell

Oh, rock of ages, do not crumble, love is breathing still
Oh, lady moon, shine down, a little people magic if you will

Yeah
Ma, ma, ma, ma, ma, ma yeah

Yeah, yeah, yeah

Jenny pines away, writes a letter everyday
We must never be together, nothing can my love erase
Oh no, I'm compromised, I must apologise
If my mother should discover how I spent my holiday
Oooh, ooh, ooh
Oooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh yeah

Lyrics:
Crowd: Mustapha, Mustapha, Mustapha, Mustapha, Mustapha, Mustapha, Mustapha, Mustapha
Ibrahim, Ibrahim, Ibrahim
Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah will pray for you

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, sing it
Mama, ooh, ooh, ooh, 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 everybody - I've got to go
Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth
Mama, ooh, ooh, ooh, 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
Thunderbolts and lightning - very, very frightening me
Gallileo, gallileo, gallileo, gallileo
Gallileo, figaro - magnifico, o, o, o, o
I'm just a poor boy, 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
Never, never, never let me go
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

Oooh yeah, oooh yeah

Nothing really matters
Anyone can see
Nothing really matters, nothing really matters to me

Anyway the wind blows

But committed no crime
And bad mistakes

Kicked in my face
But I've come through

We are the champions, my friends
And we'll keep on fighting till the end
We are the champions
We are the champions
No time for losers
'Cos we are the champions of the world

I've taken my bows
And my curtain calls
You brought me fame and fortune
And everything that goes with it, I thank you all
But it's been no bed of roses
No pleasure cruise
I consider it a challenge before
The whole human race
And I ain't gonna lose

We are the champions, my friends
And we'll keep on fighting till the end
We are the champions
We are the champions
No time for losers
'Cos we are the champions of the world

We are the champions, my friends
And we'll keep on fighting till the end
We are the champions
We are the champions
No time for losers
'Cos we are the champions
Of the world
