For the tracks released on the album, the lyrics reflect the versions released. For the unreleased songs, lyrics are taken from the 'We Will Rock You' song book. All lyric changes were presumably written by Ben Elton, Brian May and Roger Taylor

Four tracks from the album, 'Somebody To Love', 'I Want To Break Free', A Kind Of Magic' and 'No-One But You', were issued on 'Queen Rock You', a free CD in 2009 available with the Sunday Mail, which was used to promote the touring production of 'We Will Rock You' and the 30th Anniversary of the 'Live Killers' album. All tracks were identical to the album, but fade out earlier/in later than normal to omit most of the dialogue. It includes only the Galileo version of 'I Want To Break Free'.

The album was released in Australia on 8 September 2003 with a bonus track of 'Another One Bites The Dust' by Queen and Annie Crummer. It was also re-released in the UK in October 2012 to mark the 10th anniversary, featuring the reissued sleeve in a slipcase, with a bonus CD of recordings from worldwide productions.

Lyrics:
Oooooh, oooooh
Hey

While the sun hangs in the sky and the desert has sand
While the waves crash in the sea and meet the land
While there's a wind and the stars and the rainbow, huh
Till mountains crumble into the plain

Oh (yeah), yes we'll keep on trying
(Yeah) tread that fine line
Oh, oh, we'll keep on trying
Till the end of time
Till the end of time
(Till the end) till the end of time

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

No need to think, no need to feel
When only cyberspace is real
It makes us laugh, it makes us cry
It makes us feel like we could fly
(We can fly)

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

We watch our shows, we watch your stars
Across our screens for hours and hours
We hardly need our eyes or ears
We just log on and dreams appear
(Globalshow)

We're not alone, we have our friends
On cyber love, we can depend
So stick around 'cos we'd all miss you
We need our graphics, need our visual

Complete control, you are the power
You use our lives up 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

All your world loves you
Loves - you

Huh, God knows, God knows I want to break free

I've fallen in love

But God knows, oh, I've got to make it on my own
Oooh, so people can't you see

God knows I need to
God knows I want to break free

They say I got a lot of water in my brain (ooh)

Voice: Please prepare to welcome the Chief Executive Officer of Globalsoft Planet Wide: www.killerqueen@globalsoft.com/theworld

She keeps Moet Et Chandon
In her pretty cabinet
'Let them eat cake' she says
Find me on the internet
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 (ba, ba, ba, ba)
Anytime

Recommended at the price
Insatiable an appetite
Wanna try?

To avoid complications
I never keep the same address
In conversation, I email like a baroness
Met a man from China
Went down to Geisha Minah (a killer, a killer)
Then again incidentally
If you're that way inclined (she's a killer queen)

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

Drop of a hat I'm as willing as
Playful as a pussy cat
Momentarily out of action
Temporarily out of gas (ooh, ooh, da, da)
To absolutely drive you wild (drive you wild)
I'm all out to get you

All you have to do is fall in love

Of love, yeah

When you're feeling down and your resistance is low
Take a cyber shopping trip and let yourself go
Give me your life
Don't play hard to get
It's a free world
All you have to do is fall in love
Play the game
Everybody play the game of love
Love

My game of love has just begun
Love runs from my head down to your toes
My love is pumping through your veins
Play the game
Driving you insane
Come, come, come, come

Scaramouche: And dragged us to trash


Pressure pushing down on me
Pressing down on you, no man asked for
Under pressure
That burns a building down
Splits a family in two
Puts people on streets
Boom bah, bah bay
Boom bah, bah bay
Do day oh, de day oh
That's OK

That'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 dep
Ooh, ooh
Ya, da, da, bop, bop
OK

Chipping around - kick my brains around the floor
These are the days, it never rains but it pours
Ya, da, day, oh
Ya, da, da, day, day, doh
Eee, oh, oh
Ya, dop

Ooh
People on streets - ya, da, de, dah, day
People on streets - ya, da, de, dah, de, dah, de, dah
It's the terror of knowing
What this world is about
Watching some good friends
Screaming
Let me out
Pray tomorrow - gets me higher, and higher, and high
Pressure on people - people on streets

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
Love, love, love, love
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, 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 chance
This is our last dance
This is ourselves
Under pressure
Under pressure
Pressure

One shaft of light that shows the way
No mortal man can win the day
It's a kind of magic

The bell that rings inside your mind
Is challenging the doors of time
The waiting seemed eternity
The day has dawned of sanity

Is this, is this
A kind, a kind
Of magic
It's a kind of magic
There can be only one
This dream will last a thousand years
We will live on

This flame that burns inside of me
I'm hearing secret harmonies
It's a kind of magic
I ring, I ring the bell inside their minds
We're challenging the doors of time
It's a kind of magic
It's a kind of magic

This is, this is
A kind, a kind
Of magic

There can, there can
Be only one

This quest that shapes a thousand years
Will soon be, will soon be

Will soon be done
Now we are one

Adventure seeker, on an empty street
Just an alley creeper, light on his feet
A young fighter screaming, with no time for doubt
With the pain and anger, I can't see a way out

It ain't much I'm asking, I heard him say
All I want is a future, move out of my way
I want it all, I want it all, I want it all and I want it now
I want it all, I want it all, I want it all, and I want it now

Listen all you people, come gather round
I gotta get me a game plan, I'm gonna shake you to the ground
Just give me, hey, what I know is mine
People do you hear me, just give me the sign

It ain't much I'm asking, if you want the truth
Here's to the future, hear the cry of youth
I want it all, I want it all, I want it all and I want it now
I want it all, I want it all, I want it all and I want it
Now

Two hearts with a one track mind
So much to do in one life time
People do you hear me
No time for compromise and where's and why's and living lies
So I'm living it all
Yes I'm living it all
And I'm giving it all
And I'm giving it all

I want it all, I want it all, I want it all and I want it now
I want it all, I want it all, I want it all and I want it now

I want it all, I want it all, I want it all
I want it all, I want it all, yeah, and I want it now

Scaramouche: Let's go

And you're rushing headlong you've got a new goal
And you're rushing headlong out of control
And you think you're so strong
But there ain't no stopping and there's nothing you can do about it
Nothing you can do, no there's nothing you can do about it
No there's nothing you can, nothing you can
Nothing you can do about it

And you're rushing headlong you've got a new goal
And you're rushing headlong out of control
And you think you're so strong
But there ain't no stopping
And there's nothing you can do about it, yeah
Oh

Hey, he used to be a man with a stick in his hand
Hoop, diddy, diddy - hoop, diddy, do
She used to be a woman with a hotdog stand
Hoop, diddy, diddy - hoop, diddy, do
Now you've got soup in the laundry bag
Now you've got strings, you're gonna lose your rag
You're getting in a fight that ain't so groovy
When you're screaming in the night let me out of this cheap B movie

Headlong down the highway and you're rushing
Headlong out of control
And you think you're so strong
But there ain't no stopping
And you can't stop rocking
And there's nothing you can, nothing you can
Nothing you can do about it

Where we going?
We're going down, kid, wow
Get down

When a red hot man meets a white hot lady
Hoop, diddy, diddy - hoop, diddy, do
Soon the fire starts a burning - makes them more than half crazy
Hoop, diddy, diddy - hoop, diddy, do
Now you start freaking every way you turn
You can't stop running 'cos your feet got burned
It ain't no time to figure wrong from right
'Cos reason's out the window
Better hold on tight

You're rushing headlong down the highway
And you're rushing headlong out of control
And you think you're so strong
But there ain't no stopping
And there's nothing
Nothing
Nothing
Nothing
Nothing you can, nothing you can, nothing you can do about it

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 drowning 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
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


Khashoggi: And so, Mr McCartney, I've said hello and you say goodbye

The seven seas of rhye

Sister - I live and lie for you
Mister - do and I'll die
You are mine I possess you (ooh, ooh, ooh)
Belong to you forever, ever, ever

Storm the master-marathon I'll fly through
By flash and thunder fire and I'll survive
I'll survive, I'll survive
Then I'll defy the laws of nature
And come out alive
Then I'll get you

Be gone with you - you shod and shady senators
Give out the good, leave out the bad evil cries
I challenge the mighty Titan and his troubadours
And with a smile
I'll take you to the seven seas of
Rhye

Oh, I do like to be beside the seaside
Oh, I do like to be beside the sea

Hey
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, 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

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

How do you think I'm gonna get along
Without you when you're gone
I take you for everything that you've got
And kick 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
Ha

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

Another one bites the dust
Another one bites the dust, hey, hey
Another one bites the dust
Another one bites the dust, hey, yeah
Oooh, shout

There are 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
But am I'm ready, yes I'm ready for you
I'm standing on my own two feet
Out of the doorway the bullets rip
Repeating to the sound of the beat
How, huh

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

Another one bites the dust
Another one bites the dust, hey, hey
Another one bites the dust
Another one bites the dust, hey, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Ha, ha, ha, ha

You don't waste no time at all
Don't hear the bell but you answer the call
It comes to you as to us all
You're just waiting for the hammer to fall, hey
Hey
Yeah
Yeah, the hammer to fall

Oh every night, and every day
A little piece of you is falling away
But lift your face, the western way, babe
Build your muscles as your body decays

Toe your line and play their game
Let the anaesthetic cover it all
Till one day they call your name
You know it's time for the hammer to fall, hey
The hammer to fall

Rich or poor or famous for
Your truth it's all the same
Oh no, oh no
Lock your door but rain is pouring
Through your window pane
Oh no
Baby now your struggle's all vain

What the hell we fighting for?
Well just surrender and it won't hurt at all
You just got time to say your prayers
While you're waiting for the hammer to
Hammer to fall
Ey, oh
Ey, oh
The hammer to fall
Oh, yeah
Oh, yeah, huh
The hammer to fall

Hey
Yeah

Lead vocals by Pop, with backing vocals by the Bar Patrons.

Lyrics:
Sometimes I get to thinking
I was back in the old days, long ago
When we were kids, when we were young
Things seemed so perfect then, you know
The days were endless, we were crazy, we were young
The sun was always shining, we just lived for fun
Sometimes it seems like lately, I just don't know
The rest of my life's been just a show

Those were the days of our lives
The bad things in life were so few
Those days are all gone now but one thing remains
When I look, and I find, no change

You can't turn back the clock, you can't turn back the time
Ain't that a shame?
I'd like to go back one time on a rollercoaster ride
When life was just a game
No use in sitting and a thinking on what you did
When you can lay back and enjoy it through the kids
Sometimes it seems like lately I just don't know
Better sit back and go with the flow

'Cos these are the days of our lives
They've flown in the swiftness of time
These days are all gone now but one thing remains
When I look and I find
Hope still survives
Oh, yeah

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, 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
My 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 (anyway the wind blows)
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
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
Never, 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
Yeah

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
