Lyrics:
Ah
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na

Ah
Ah
I'm gonna get you
Oh yeah

Killer queen walks wearily down the street
With her brim pulled way down low
Ain't no sound but the sound of her feet
Machine guns ready to go

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

Ooh, ah yeah

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

Another one bites the dust, oh yes
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
Oooh, oooh

Ooh, ooh
Ooooh
Ooh, ooh
Yeah, yeah
Ooh, ooh
I'm gonna get you
Wow
Bites the dust, yeah
I'm gonna get you

Another one bites the dust
Another one bites the dust, ooh
Another one bites the dust, oh, oh
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah (na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na)
There's a 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, down, down
But I'm ready, yes I'm ready for you
I'm standing on my own two feet
Out of the doorway the bullets rip
To the sound of the beat
Oooh, yeah

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

Hey
Oh no
Oh no
Oh no
You better look out

'Radio Ga Ga' Lyrics:
Globalsoft

We sit alone and watch your light
Our only friend through teenage nights
And everything we want to get
We download from the internet

A blueprint for our life online
Touch any key, the world is mine
We're lost in space, but we don't care
Without your light, our world's not there
Complete control, you are the power
Our lives are programmed by the hour
Globalshow
(Globalshow)

All we hear is radio ga ga
Video goo goo
Internet ka ka
All we hear is cyberspace ga ga
Marketing blah blah
Always something new
Globalsoft, all your world loves you
Loves
You

'Somebody To Love' Lyrics:
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 (take a look at yourself in the mirror and cry)
Lord what you doing to me (yeah, yeah)
I spent all my years in believing you (ooh, ooh, believing you)
But I just can't get no relief, Lord! (ooh, ooh, ooh, Lord)

(Find me somebody to love, find me somebody to love)
(Find me somebody to love) oooh, ooh, find me, oh, find me (find me somebody to love)
(Find me somebody to love) ooohh
Can anybody find me somebody to love?

Somebody, somebody to, love

'We Will Rock You' Lyrics:
Buddy you're a boy, make a big noise
Playing in the street, gonna be a big man some day
You got mud on your face
You big disgrace
Kicking your can all over the place
Singing

(We will, we will, rock you) everybody
(We will, we will, rock you) come on now
We will, we will, rock you, alright
We will, we will, rock you

'We Are The Champions' Lyrics:
I've paid my dues
Time after time
I've done my sentence
But committed no crime
And bad mistakes
I've made a few
I've had my share of sand
Kicked in my face
But I've come through
And I need to go on and on and on and on

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

Lyrics:
Una mano sobre al aqua
Un angel vuela sobre el mar
Es que llueve en el cielo
Vas a hacerme llorar

Aqui y alla los infelices
En cada solitaria luz
Nadie los tocu
Tan solo tu

Ya no estan
Solo los buenos se van
Ellos volaban muy cerca del sol
Y la vida sigues sin ti

Que dificil situacion
Me voy ahogando en el blues
Y me quedo pensando
Bueno que harias tu

Si, hiciste tu gran actuacion
Sin deudas te marchaste tu
Dios fuiste una sensacion
Oh, hallaste la luz

Ya no estan
Solo los buenos se van
Ellos volaban muy cerca del sol
Recordaremos por siempre

La fiesta debe terminarse
Y nunca voy a entender
Por que nos dejaste
Asi tuvo que ser

Y reunidos en la mesa
Brindamos juntos otra vez
Aparece su rostro
Del que nunca, nunca me olvidare

Ya no estan
Solo los buenos se van
Ellos volaban muy cerca del sol
Lloro por nada
Lloro por nadie
Solo por ti

Lyrics:
A hand above the water
An angel reaching for the sky
Is it raining in heaven
Do you want us to cry?

And everywhere the broken hearted
On every lonely avenue
No-one could reach them
No-one but you

One by one
Only the good die young
They're only flying too close to the sun
And life goes on
Without you

Another tricky situation
I get to drownin' in the blues
And I find myself thinking
Well, what would you do?

Yes, it was such an operation
Forever paying every due
Hell, you made a sensation
Oh, you found a way through

One by one
Only the good die young
They're only flying too close to the sun
And we'll remember
Forever

And now the party must be over
I guess we'll never understand
The sense of your leaving
Was it the way it was planned?

And so we grace another table
And raise our glasses one more time
There's a face at the window
And I ain't never, never saying goodbye, oh

One by one
Only the good die young
They're only flying too close to the sun
Crying for nothing
Crying for no-one
No-one but you

No-One But You

(Only The Good Die Young) (We Will Rock You Japan + Rebecca Jackson Mendoza)


This track was recorded by the Japanese cast and Rebecca Jackson Mendoza, and does not feature Queen at all. Length 4:43.
The track was available on a promo CD which was available at the Shinjuku Koma Theatre in Tokyo while the musical was staged there. It has a couple of very minor lyric changes compared to the original.

Together paying every due
