Lyrics:
Action

Hey
This street honey is a mean street
Living in this street honey is a mean streak
We've got criminals living in this street
You got a heartbeat pulse that keeps on pumping
Like a jukebox playing the same dead record
Or a radio in the corner keeps blaring
I gotta feeling this world is using me

Ha
This town honey is a dead town
Living in this town honey is a let down
Coming to this town honey is a show down
You got a heartbeat pulse that keeps on pumping
Some sunshine ray through a crack in the shutter
Or a sight of a light at the end of the tunnel
I gotta feeling this world is using me

Action this day
Action this night
Oh, you've got the power to love to live
You can't say it ain't right

Action this day
Action this night
Oh, you've got the power
You've got the power
You've got the power to love and to live
You can't say it ain't right

Your mind honey is a bleak place
Living in your mind honey is a blank space
Your mind is coming from a rat race
You got a heartbeat pulse that keeps on pumping
Like a jukebox playing the same dead record
Or a radio in the corner keeps blaring
I gotta feeling that just won't quit, this world is using me

Action this day
Action this night
Oh, you've got the power to love to live
You can't say it ain't right

Action this day
Action this night
Oh, you've got the power
You've got the power
You've got the power to love and to live
You can't say it ain't right

I just can't get no relief, Lord
Somebody (somebody), somebody (somebody)
Anybody find me somebody to love

I work hard (he works hard) every day of my bloody life
I work till I ache my bones
At the end (at the end of the day)
I take home my hard earned pay all on my own (goes home on his own)
I go down on my knees
And I start to pray
Till the tears run down from my eyes,
Lord
Somebody (somebody), somebody (somebody)
Anybody find me somebody to love

Everyday - try and I try and I try
But everybody wants to put me down

Oooh, oooh, Lord
Somebody (somebody), somebody (somebody)
Anybody find me somebody to love

Got no feel, I've got no rhythm
I just keep losing my beat

It started off so well
They said we made a perfect pair
I clothed myself in your glory and your love
How I loved you
How I cried

Years of care and loyalty
Were nothing but a sham it seems
The years belie we lived the lie
I love you 'til I die

Save me, save me, save me
I can't face this life alone
Save me, save me, ohhhh
I'm naked and I'm far from home

The slate will soon be clean
I'll erase the memories
To start again with somebody new
Was it all wasted
All that love

I hang my head and I advertise
A soul for sale or rent
I have no heart, I'm cold inside
I have no real intent

Save me, save me, save me
I can't face this life alone
Save me, save me, ohhh
I'm naked and I'm far from home
Freak out

Yeah, yeah
Each night I cry, I still believe the lie
I love you, 'til I die
Yes, ah

Save me, yeah

Don't let me face my life alone

Save me, save me, ooh, oh, oh, ooh
I'm naked and I'm far from home

Make love inside your bed

Um, boom, bah, bay

Um, boom, bah, do, 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

It's the terror of knowing
What 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, day
Day, day, day, day, day

Audience: OK

Chipping around - kick my brains around the floor
These are the days, it never rains but it pours
Eh, doh, day, dee
Eh, da, da, dop
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 - higher, higher
Ooooohhh

Turned away from it all like a blind man
Sat on a fence but it don't work
Keep coming up with love but it's so slashed and torn
Why - 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
Cause 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

Roger: One, two, three, four

Oh, you gonna take me home tonight
Oh, down beside your red fire light
Oh, you gonna let it all hang out
Fat bottomed girls
You make the rocking world go round

I was just a skinny lad
Never knew no good from bad
But I knew life before I left my nursery, huh
Left alone with big fat fanny
She was such a naughty nanny
Big woman, you made an asshole out of me
You do that

I've been singing with my band
Across the water across the land
I've seen every blue eyed floozy on the way, hey
But their beauty and their style
Wear kind of smooth after a while
Take me to them dirty ladies every time
Come on

Oh, you gonna take me home tonight
Oh, down beside your red fire light
Oh, you gonna give it all you got
Fat bottomed girls
You make the rocking world go round
Fat bottomed girls
You make the rocking world go round

Now I've got mortgages on homes
I've got stiffness in my bones
Ain't no beauty queens in this locality
I tell you
Hope that I still got my treasure
Still got my greatest pleasure
Big woman you gonna make a big man of me

Oh, I know, you gonna take me home tonight
Oh, down beside your red fire light
Oh, you gonna let it all hang out
Fat bottomed girls
You make the rocking world go round, yeah
Fat bottomed girls
You make the rocking world go round

Get on your bikes and ride

(unknown lyric)
Right on

One more time, yeah
Oooh, yeah

A 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

I 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
Crazy little thing called love

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)

Lyrics:
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

Mama, oooh, 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, oooh, 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-oh
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, never, never (never let you go)
Never let me go-o-o-o-oh
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

Big, big, big, big, big, big daddy out of doors
Tie your mother down
Tie your mother down

All your love tonight
All your love tonight

Hey
Give it to me

Steve walks wearily down the street
Brim pulled way down low
Ain't no sound but the sound of his feet
Machine guns ready to go

Are you ready, hey, are you ready for this
Are you standing on the edge of your seat
Out of the doorway the bullets rip
To the sound of the beat

Hey, yeah, yeah, yeah
Another one bites the dust, sing it

Audience: another one bites the dust
And another one gone, and another one gone
Another one bites the dust
Hey, I'm gonna get you too
Another one bites the dust

Ha, ha
Hey, hey, hey

How do you think I'm gonna get along
Without you when you're gone
You took me for everything that I had
And kicked me out on my own
Are you happy, are you satisfied
How long can you stand the beat
Out the door way the bullets rip
To the sound of the beat

Hey, yeah, yeah, yeah
Another one bites the dust
Another one bites the dust
And another one gone, and another one gone
Another one bites the dust
Hey, I'm gonna get you too
Another one bites the dust

Ha
Hey, hey
Oh, bite the dust baby, hey
Bite the dust baby
Bite the dust baby
Bite it, bite it, bite it
Bite the dick baby, bite the dick baby
Bite it, bite it, bite it, baby
Get on down, ha
Baby get on down baby
Ooh, yeah, yeah
Oh baby, baby yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, right

Boogie on down
Hey, hey, hey
Bite it, baby bite it
Baby bite down, bite it, baby bite down, bite it, big bite
Hey, oh, shake
Ah, shake on down
Baby shake on down
Baby, we, hey
I'm with you, I'm ready
Another one bites the dust
Another one bites the dust
Another one bites the dust
Another one bites the dust
Hey, yeah, yeah, yeah

There's plenty of ways that you can hurt a man
And bring him to the ground
You can beat him, you can cheat him
You can treat him bad and leave him when he's down, yeah
But I'm ready, yes I'm ready for you
I'm standing on my own two feet
Out the doorway the bullets rip
To the sound of the beat
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Give it

Another one bites the dust, your turn

Audience: another one bites the dust
Ha, and another one gone, and another one gone
Another one bites the dust
Hey, I'm gonna get you too
Another one bites the dust

Shoot out, shoot out, shoot out
Hey, hey, hey
Alright
Alright

Hey, yeah

And we'll keep on fighting till the end
We are the champions

Of the world

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

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