Compiled by Justin Shirley Smith and Kris Fredrikkson
Golders Green concert produced by Jeff Griffin, sound balance by John Etchells, introduced by Alan Black

Mannheim concert mixed by Gerd Rautenbach, assistant engineer Peter Brandt, introduced by Bernd Mohrhoff


This page includes a transcription of all of the live tracks which were released on disc 3 of the 'On Air' deluxe 6 CD boxed set, titled 'Live On Air'.
The set also included two discs containing all six BBC Sessions, and three discs of interviews, covering the periods 1976-1980, 1981-1986 and 1986-1992.


The Golder's Green concert is included as it was originally broadcast, therefore it loses 'See What A Fool I've Been' (performed before 'Ogre Battle') and only includes around a minute of 'Jailhouse Rock', which was originally the opening track in a 7 minute Rock 'n' Roll Medley, which also included 'Shake Rattle & Roll', 'Stupid Cupid', 'Be Bop A Lula', 'Big Spender' and 'Bama Lama Bama Loo'. The majority of the tracks were previously released on the 'Cry Argentina' and 'Rogues And Scandals' bootlegs, as part of the 'Top 100 Bootlegs' project.

The Morumbi concert was broadcast on Brazilian TV and radio on the Bandeirantes Network, and contains only 8 tracks, omitting the main part of 'Now I'm Here' but including Freddie's singalong section (titled 'Alright Alright') and it's reprise after 'Dragon Attack'. Three tracks had been released previously, as 'Love Of My Life' appears on the 'Rare Live' video (but loses the first verse), while 'Alright Alright' and 'Dragon Attack' (and a very small portion of 'Now I'm Here') were released on the 2011 iTunes LP reissue of 'The Game', titled as 'Vocal Improvisation & Dragon Attack', lasting 5:02. It is a real shame that the disc omits 'Play The Game', 'Somebody To Love' and 'Save Me', which were undoubted highlights from the tour, as well as 'Need Your Loving Tonight', which was rarely performed.

Finally, the Mannheim concert was originally broadcast on German channel SWF3, and includes 8 tracks, which were all previously released on the 'Done Under Pressure' bootleg, as part of the 'Top 100 Bootlegs' project. The Magic Tour has already been extensively released, with full shows available of both Wembley shows, Budapest, and highlights of Knebworth, so it is a pity that these were included when a show from another period could have been chosen instead, such as Kampuchea 1979.

A word in your ear, from father to son

Long before you were born

Father to son, to son

Every now and again
Time after time I keep a calling you, and warning you of your ways
Father replies, son I'm on your side
I was a long, long time ago
Kings will be crowned, word goes around
Father to son, to son

Do, do, do, do, do, do

Do, do, do, do, do
Do, do, do, do
Ooooh

Watch you write you out a letter
Hold it son and hold it high
You won't understand a word that's in it
But you'll write it out again before you die
Ohh, yes

Oooh
To-dah, to-dah, to-dah, oh yeah
I'm gonna write you out a letter

Oooh, oooh
A word in your ear
From father to son
You've gotta show me, now you show me, show me your ways
I fought with you, I fought on your side
I fought a long, long time ago

Sing if you will
But the air you breathe I live to give you
Father to son
Father to, father to, father to son


Alan Black: Well that opener from Queen is a new song called 'Father To Son', which will be I understand on the new Queen album when that comes out, but that's some time in the future, because the new album is still very much around and doing nicely. The band asked me to point out that they won't be doing in fact the number that came off the first album as a single, 'Keep Yourself Alive', but they will be doing others from it, including this, 'Son And Daughter'

For having your fun
Mm, didn't you feel surprised to find
The cap just didn't fit
A woman expects a man
To buckle down and a shovel it
What'll you think of loving
If it's a only just begun

I want you
To be a woman

Tried to be a preacher
And a fisher of men
An equal people preacher
Will you lead us all the same now
Well I travelled all round
The world and found
A brand new word for day
Watching the time
Never linger behind
Pardon me I have to get away
What'll you think of heaven
If it's the one and the only game, yeah

I want you
Oo-ooh, to be a woman
I want you to be
I want you to be a woman

If it's the one and the only game, yes

I want you to be a woman
Woman


Freddie: Thank you
Alan Black: Well that was 'Son And Daughter' from Queen, with lead guitarist Brian May featured quite prominently there. Er, record reviewers recently remarked on the tasteful synthesiser sounds on Queen recordings, but they got it wrong, because Queen never use a synthesiser in the studio or on stage, the answer really is a very special guitar that was built entirely by hand by Brian May, and it's got a special bridge tremelo unit and two special pick-ups, and that gives Queen a very distinctive sound, and you'll be hearing that throughout the evening. Here's another new number for you, this is a Freddie Mercury composition and it's called 'Ogre Battle', 'Ogre Battle'.

Ogre Battle


Track 6. Track length 5:22, song length 4:37.
Recorded at Golder's Green Hippodrome, London, England, on 13 September 1973.
This track comprises the 'forgotten intro' lasting 0:43, followed by the song itself lasting 3:55. Around 6 seconds of the intro also appear at the end of 'Son And Daughter (reprise)', underneath the dialogue.
Details of the original version can be found on the 'Queen II' album page.

Lyrics:
Ah

Ah, ah, ah, ah, ahh
Now once upon a time
An old man told me a fable
When the piper is gone
And the soup is cold on the table
And if the black crow flies
To find a new destination
And the battle is on, yeah
Come tonight
Come to the ogre bite
Come to ogre battle fight

He gives a great big cry
And he can swallow up the ocean
With a mighty tongue he catches flies
The palm of a hand incredible size
One great big eye
He can focus in your direction
Now the battle is on
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Come tonight
Come to the ogre bite
Come to ogre battle fight

Ah, ah, ah, ah, ahh
Show 'em

The ogre men are still inside
The two-way mirror mountain
You gotta stay clear and out of sight
You can't see in but you can see out
Look out
The ogre men are coming out
Two-way mirror mountain
You gotta stay clear, gotta go south
You can't see in but you can see out
Oh yes

Ogre men are going home
And then the great big fight is over
Bugle blow let trumpet cry
Ogre battle lives for evermore
Wow, oh, ohh
But you can come along
You can come along
Come to ogre battle

Ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ahh


Alan Black; There you are, that was 'Ogre Battle', another new number from Queen, that was a Freddie Mercury composition, and that's being recorded for the new album. Very fine bunch of lads they are, you know, we've got Freddie Mercury on vocals, Roger Meddows Taylor on percussion, Deacon John on bass, and Brian May on guitar. Alright, we're moving on with another number that's featured on the 'Queen' album, the first album, and this again is a Freddie Mercury composition, this is called 'Liar'

Liar


Track 7. Track length 7:27, song length 7:03.

Lyrics:
I have sinned dear father
Father I have sinned
Try and help me father
Won't you let me in
Liar, oh nobody believes me
Liar, ooh, why don't you leave me

Father, I have stolen
Stolen many times
Raised my voice in anger
When I know I never should
Liar, oh everybody 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, yes, 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
In the right way
Ooh

Liar, liar, they never ever let you win
Liar, liar, everything you do is sin
Liar, nobody believes you
Liar, they bring you down before you begin
Umm, now let me tell you
Now you know you could be dead before they let you


Freddie: Thank you
Alan Black: And that was the high energy 'Liar' from Queen, bringing us almost to the end of another concert programme. The programme was produced by Jeff Griffin, sound balance was by John Etchells, and leaping about this week we have Paul Deeley, but now it's back to Queen, who play us out with a short medley of 'Jailhouse Rock' and 'Bama Lama Loo'

Jailhouse Rock

Details of this track can be found on the Live Only Songs page.
Lyrics:
Warden threw a party in the county jail
Prison band was there and they began to wail
Band was jumpin' and the joint began to swing
Should've heard them knocked out jailbirds sing
Let's rock, everybody let's rock at home and roll tonight
Everybody in the whole cell block
Dancing to the jailhouse rock

Spider Murphy played the tenor saxophone
Little Joe was blowing on his slide trombone
Drummer boy from Illinois went crash, boom, bang
Whole rhythm section was the purple gang
Let's rock, everybody let's rock at home and roll tonight
Everybody in the whole cell block
Dancing to the jailhouse rock


Bob Harris: And that's all from this week's concert programme. Radio One now joins Radio Two for the next two and a half hours

With your hand on my grease gun
Oh, it's like a disease son

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

A kind of magic

One dream, one soul, one prize, one goal
One golden glance of what should be
It's a kind of magic
One flash of light, that shows the way, hey
No mortal man can win this day
It's a kind of magic
A bell that rings inside your mind
Is challenging the doors of time

The waiting seems eternity, yeah
The day will dawn of sanity
Is this a kind of magic
It's a kind of magic
There can be only one, one
It's a kind of magic
This rage that lasts a thousand years
Will soon be done

This flame that burns inside of me
I'm hearing secret harmonies
A bell that rings inside your mind
Is challenging the doors of time

Hey (it's a kind of magic)
Magic
Kind of magic
(It's a kind of magic)

This rage that lasts a thousand years
Will soon be, will soon be, will soon be gone

This is a kind of magic, can you believe it?
There can be only one, one
This rage that lasts a thousand years
Will soon be gone
Gone

Come on
Everybody
Alright
This is magic, hey
One more time

Magic, magic, magic, magic
Hey, hey, hey

Hey, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

This rage that lasts a thousand years

Lyrics:
Freddie: Hey

Um, boom, bah, bay
Um, boom, bah, bay
Bum, bum, bah, bah, boh bah

Pressure pushing down on me
Pushing down on you, no man ask for
Under pressure
That burns a building down
Splits a family in two
Puts people on streets

Um, bah, bah, bay
Um, bah, bah, bay
Eh, day, dah
Eh, day, dah
That's OK

The terror of knowing
This world is about
Watching some good friends screaming
Let me out
Pray tomorrow - gets me higher
Pressure on people - people on streets

Day, day, dah
Day, day, day, day, day
OK

Pushing around - kick my brains around the floor
These are the days, it never rains but it pours
Eh, doh, day, day
Eh, ba, ba, bop
Eh, doh, doh
De, dop

People on streets
Eh, dah, dee, dah, day
People on streets
Eh, dah, dee, dah, dee, dah, dee, dah

It's the terror of knowing
What this world is about
Watching some good friends screaming
Let me out
Pray tomorrow - high, higher, ooh

Turned away from it all like a blind man
Sat on a fence but it didn't fucking work
Coming up with love but it's so slashed and torn
Why - why
Insanity laughs under pressure we're cracking

Can't we give ourselves one more chance
Why can't we give love that one more chance
Why can't we give love, give love, give love
Give love, give love, give love, give love, give love
Love's such an old fashioned word
And love dares you to
Care for the people on the
Edge of the night
And love dares you to
Change our way of
Caring about ourselves
This is our last dance
This is our last dance
This is ourselves

Under pressure
Under pressure
Pressure

Is This The World We Created?

Lyrics:
Just look at all those hungry mouths we have to feed
Take a look at all the suffering we breed
So many lonely faces scattered all around
Searching for what they need

Is this the world we created, what did we do it for?
Is this the world we invaded, against the law
So it seems in the end is this what we're all living for today
The world that we created

You know that everyday a helpless child is born
Who needs some loving care inside a happy home
Somewhere a wealthy man sitting on his throne
Waiting for life to go by
Oooh, oooh

Is this the world we created, we made it on our own
Is this the world we devastated right to the bone
If there's a God up in the sky looking down
What must he think of what we've done
To the world that we created

(You're So Square) Baby I Don't Care

Lyrics:
Freddie: Come on, everybody

I don't like crazy music
You don't like rocking bands
You just want to go to a movie show
And sit there holding hands
You're so square
Baby I don't care
Do wop, do wop, do wop, do wop

You don't care if my heart beats (do wop)
I only know it does (do wop)
I don't wanna miss the loving baby
It's only just because
You're so square
Baby I don't care
Do wop, do wop, baby I don't care, do wop, do wop

You don't know any dances that I do

(Improvised lyric)
But I do, I do, I do, I do, do

You don't like crazy music (do wop)
Don't like rocking bands (do wop)
You just want to go to a movie show
And sit there holding hands
You're so square
Baby I don't care
Do wop, do wop, baby I don't care, do wop, do wop
Baby I don't care, care (do wop), care, care (do wop), care, care (do wop), care, care, care, yeah

I said hello Mary Lou - goodbye heart

So hello Mary Lou - goodbye heart

Pass me by one sunny day
Flashed those big browns eyes my way
I knew I wanted you for ever more

Freddie: Brian, you take this next one

Brian: Swear my feet stuck

To the ground
And, oh, I never did see you before, yeah, yeah

Said hello Mary Lou - goodbye heart
Sweet Mary Lou I'm so in love with you
I knew Mary Lou - we'd never part
So hello Mary Lou - goodbye heart
Said hello Mary Lou - goodbye heart
Yes hello Mary Lou - goodbye heart

Lyrics:
A this thing called love I just can't handle it
This thing called love (more) I just round to it
I ain't ready
Crazy little thing called love

This thing (this thing) called love (called love)
It cries (like a baby)
In a cradle all night
It swings (woo, woo)
It jives (woo, woo)
It shakes all over like a jelly fish
I kinda like it
Crazy little thing called love

There goes my baby
She knows how to rock 'n' roll
She drives me crazy
She gives me hot and cold fever
And she leaves me in a cool, cool sweat

Gotta be cool, relax, get hip
Get on my tracks
Take a back seat, hitch hike
Take a long ride on my motorbike
Until I'm ready
Crazy little thing called love


(Audience: Gotta be cool, relax) get hip
And get on my tracks
Take a back seat, hitch hike
Take a long ride on my motorbike
Until I'm ready (ready Freddie)
Crazy little thing called love

This thing called love I just round to it
This thing called love I must get round to it
I ain't ready
Crazy little thing called love
Crazy little thing called love, take it, Brian

Hey, crazy little thing called love, yeah
Crazy little thing called love, yeah
Crazy little thing called love, hey, hey
Crazy little thing called love, ha, haa
Crazy little thing called love
Hey, crazy little thing called love, yeah
Crazy little thing called love, yeah, yeah
Crazy little thing called love, alright
