Get your party gown
Get your pigtail down
Get your heart beating, baby
Got my timing right
I've got my act all tight
It's gotta be tonight my little schoolbabe

Your daddy says you don't
I'm boiling up inside
No way I'm gonna lose out this time

Tie your mother down
Tie your mother down
Lock your daddy out of doors
I don't need him nosing around
Tie your mother down
Tie your mother down
Give me all your love tonight

You're such a dirty louse
Go get out of my house
That's all I ever get from you
Ooh, your family ties, in fact I don't think I ever heard
A single little civil word from those guys
But I don't give a light
Gonna make out all right
Got a sweetheart hand
To put a stop to all that
Sniping and grousing

Tie your mother down
Tie your mother down
Take your little brother swimming
With a brick, that's all right
Tie your mother down
Tie your mother down
Or you ain't no friend of mine

Slash

Your mummy and your daddy gonna
Plague me till I die
They can't understand
I'm just a peace loving guy

Ooh, yeah
Tie your mother down
Tie your mother down
Get that big, big, big, big, big, big daddy out of doors
Tie your mother down
Yeah, yeah
Tie your mother down
Give me all your love tonight
All your love tonight
All your love tonight
All your love tonight
All your love tonight

Oooh, yeah
Tonight

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

Gonna find me a future, move out of my way, come on

Here's to the future, for the dreams of youth
I want it all, I want it all, I want it all and I want it now
I want it all (give it to me), I want it all (yeah, yeah), I want it all (oh, I tell you) and I want it now

I'm a man with a one track mind
Too much to do in one life time
I'm not a man for compromise and where's and why's and telling lies
But I'm living it all (living it all)
And I'm giving it all (and I'm giving it all), ooooh, yeah

It ain't much I'm asking, if you want the truth

Comes to you as to us all
We're just waiting for the hammer to fall, yeah

Oh every night, every day
A little piece of you is falling away
Lift your voice, the western way, baby
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, do it

Rich or poor or famous for
Your truth it's all the same (oh no, oh no)
Oh, lock your door 'cos rain is pouring
Through your window pane (oh no)
Oh, baby, now your struggle's all in vain

Are you ready? Wembley

He who grew up tall and proud
In the shadow of the mushroom cloud
Convinced our voices can't be heard
We just want to scream it louder, louder

What the hell we fighting for?
Just surrender and it won't hurt at all
Just got time to say your prayers
You know it's time for the hammer to fall

Do it

Do it now

Brian: Robert Plant, thank you. The incomparable Robert Plant. I'd like to introduce you to, to an unsung hero, who has been helping us out for very many years and I have no idea what we would do without him, on keyboards, Mr Spike Edney. What a bloke. Alright, alright, this is a song which I wrote, quite a few years ago with some friends, but it's never seen the light of day yet, and my excuse for singing it, I think, is that it is the best thing that I have to offer, so here goes.

Too Much Love Will Kill You


Chapter 7 on the 2002 DVD, chapter 11 on the 2013 releases. Length 4:06.
Performed by Brian May and Spike Edney. This is a full piano and keyboard version, with no guitars or drums.
Details of Brian's original version can be found on the 'Back To The Light' album page, while the Queen version can be found on the 'Made In Heaven' album page.

Lyrics:
I'm just the pieces of the man I used to be
Too many bitter tears are raining down on me
I'm far away from home
And I've been facing this alone for much too long

I feel like no-one ever told the truth to me
About growing up and what a struggle it would be
In my tangled state of mind
I've been looking back to find where I went wrong

Too much love will kill you
If you can't make up your mind
Torn between the lover
And the love you leave behind
You're headed for disaster
'Cos you never read the signs
Too much love will kill you - every time

I'm just the shadow of the man I used to be
And it seems like there's no way out of this for me
I used to bring you sunshine
All I ever do is bring you down

How would it be if you were standing in my shoes
Can't you see that it's impossible to choose
There's no making sense of it
Every way I go I have to lose

Too much love will kill you
Just as sure as none at all
It'll drain the power that's in you
Make you plead and scream and crawl
And the pain will make you crazy
You're the victim of your crime
Too much love will kill you - every time

Yeah
Too much love will kill you
It'll make your life a lie
Yes, too much love will kill you
And you won't understand why
You'd give your life
You'd sell your soul
But here it comes again
Too much love will kill you
In the end
In the end


Brian: Thank you. Our next guest is Mr Paul Young

Lyrics:
Paul: Get those hands now

I'd sit alone and watch your light
My only dream through teenage nights
And everything I had to know
I heard it on my radio
(Radio)

You gave us all your old time stars
Through wars of worlds invaded by Mars
You made 'em laugh, you made 'em cry
You made us feel like we could fly
(Radio)

So don't become some background noise
A backdrop for the girls and boys
Who just don't know and just don't care
And just complain when you're not there
You had your time, you had the power
You've yet to have your finest hour
Radio (radio)

Let's see you
All we hear is radio ga ga
Radio goo goo, radio ga ga
All we hear is radio ga ga
Radio blah blah
Radio what's new?
Radio, someone still loves you

We watch the shows, we watch the stars
On videos for hours and hours
We hardly need to use our ears
Our music changes through the years
(Radio)

Let's hope you'll never leave old friend
Like all good things on you we depend
So stick around 'cos we might miss you
When we grow tired of all this visual
You've had your time, you've had the power
You've yet to have your finest hour
Radio (radio)

All we hear is radio ga ga
Radio goo goo, radio ga ga
All we hear is radio ga ga
Radio goo goo, radio ga ga
All we hear is radio ga ga
Radio blah blah
Radio what's new?
Radio, someone still loves you

Radio ga ga
Radio ga ga
Radio ga ga
(Radio)

You've had your time, you've had the power
You've yet to have your finest hour
Radio (radio)

All we hear is radio ga ga
Radio goo goo, radio ga ga
All we hear is radio ga ga
Radio blah blah
Radio what's new?
Radio, someone still loves you
Loves you

What is this thing that builds our dreams yet slips away from us

Who wants to live forever
Who wants to live forever, no-one

There's no chance for us
It's all decided for us
This world has only one sweet moment set aside for us

Who wants to live forever
Who wants to live forever, no-one
(Who wants to live forever)
(Who wants to live forever)
Ooh, oh-oh-ooh, when love must die

But touch my tears with your lips
Touch my world with your fingertips
And we can have forever
And we can love forever
Forever is ours today

Who wants to live forever
Who wants to live forever
Forever is ours today
We only need a chance
To live

This time I know it's for real

Living without you by my side

Um, bum, bah, bah
Um, bum, bah, bah
Ba, ba, boom, bah, bay-ah


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


Um, bah, bah, bay
Um, bah, bah, bay
Be, bay, ah
That's OK


The terror of knowing
What this world is about
Watching the good friend screaming

Let me out
Pray tomorrow - gets me higher
Pressure on people - people on streets

Audience: Day, day, dah
Bah, bah, bah, ba, bah
Audience: OK

Chipping around - kick my brains across the floor (ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
These are the days, it never rains but it pours

People on streets
Ahh-ahh-ahh-ahh-ahh-ahh-ahh
People on streets


It's the terror of knowing
What this world is about
Watching some good friends screaming

Let me out
Pray tomorrow - takes me higher
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 for air but she's so slashed and torn
Oooh, ooh yeah, oooh yeah, oooh yeah
Love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love

Insanity laughs under pressure we're cracking (love, love, love, love)

Why can't we give ourselves one more chance
Why can't we give love 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

Pressure


David: The most exquisite Annie Lennox
Annie: Thank you
Roger: Annie Lennox
David: Absolutely fabulous. Where did she get that dress? Beautiful. This is where the fun stops. At the end of the sixties, we were left with a legacy of quite wonderful bands, Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones. And then came the seventies, with this new unstoppable crop, T-Rex, Roxy Music, Queen, Spiders From Mars, and The Rolling Stones. We all used to play the same dance halls and theatres, and play the same clubs, try not to wear the same clothes, and slept with a lot of the same people I think, but ah, one of the major rockiness bands of that time was called Mott The Hoople. But firstly I'd like to introduce you to the guitar player from the Spiders From Mars, Mick Ronson. I wrote a song for Mott The Hoople, the lead singer of that particular band was Ian Hunter.

And Freddie's got spots from ripping off the stars from his face
Oh funky little boat race

The television man is crazy saying we're juvenile delinquents
Oh, man, I need TV when I've got T-Rex
Oh brother you guessed, I'm a dude yeah

But she can kick like a mule - it's a real mean team
Oh we can love - you better believe it
And my brother's back at home with his Beatles and his Stones
We never got enough of that revolution stuff
What a drag, too many snags

I drunk a lotta wine and I'm feeling fine
I gotta raise some cash today, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Is there hungry all around, or is it in my head?
Oh brother you guessed
I'm a dude yeah

Lyrics:
I, I wish I could swim
Like dolphins, like dolphins can swim
Though nothing can drive them away
We can beat them - just for one day
We can be heroes - just for one day
What do you say?

I, I would be king
And you, you would be my queen
And nothing could take us away
And nothing and no-one would beat us
We can be heroes just for one day

And I, I can remember
Standing, standing by the wall
And the guns, the guns shot above our heads
And we kissed, as though nothing could fall
And the shame, it fell on the other side
We can beat them - forever and ever
We can be heroes - just for one day

What do you say - I say
We can be heroes, yeah
We can be heroes - I say
We can be heroes - I say now
We can be heroes
Though nothing, and no-one will help us
Maybe we're lying, yeah
Then you better not stay
We can be heroes


David: This tribute is for our great friend Freddie Mercury. I'd also like us to remember our friends, your friends, my friends, who have died recently, or in the distant past, friends who are still living and in some of your cases, possibly members of your family that have been toppled by this relentless disease. I'd particularly like to extend my wishes to my friend, Craig, I know you're watching Craig, and I'd like to offer something in a very simple fashion, but it's the most direct way that I can think of doing it. Our father, who art in heaven, hallow be thy name. Thy kingdom come, day will be done, on Earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us of trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, for thy is the kingdom, power, and the glory for ever and ever, Amen. Right. God bless Queen, god bless you, thank you goodnight.

Roger: Well, after that, we have to busk it, so I'd like you, to introduce you to George Michael.

'39


Chapter 14 on the 2002 DVD, chapter 18 on the 2013 releases. Length 1:43.
Lead vocals by George Michael.
Details of the original version can be found on the 'A Night At The Opera' album page.

Lyrics:
In the year of '39 assembled here the volunteers
In the days when lands were few
Here the ship sailed out into the blue and sunny morn
Sweetest sight ever seen

And the night followed day
And the story tellers say
That the score brave souls inside
Oh, for many a lonely day sailed across the milky seas
Never looked back, never cried, never cried, come on

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, oh


George: Thank you very much, are you having a good time? It's great to see so many people who were obviously really into Queen and obviously great fans of Freddie's out there. Hand on my heart, that particular song was a song that um, I used to busk on the underground, when I was about 15, so that meant something to me. Right, now, straight back from Rochdale, would you please welcome Miss Lisa Stansfield.

These Are The Days Of Our Lives

Lead vocals by George Michael and Lisa Stansfield.
Details of the original version can be found on the 'Innuendo' album page, while details of the rehearsal are available here.

Lyrics: (George Michael sings the first two verses, Lisa Stansfield sings the fourth and fifth, and the rest are jointly sung)
George: No hoover, and no curlers
Lisa: Oooh, ooh-ooh


Sometimes I get to feeling
I was back in the old days, long ago
When we were kids, when we were young
Things seemed so perfect, you know

The days were endless, we were crazy, we were young
The sun was always shining, we just lived for fun
Sometimes I feel like lately, I just don't know
The rest of my life seems just a show

'Cos those were the days of our lives
The bad things in life were so few
Those days are all gone now but one thing is true
When I look, and I find, I still love you

You can't turn back the clock, you can't turn back the time
Ain't that a shame? (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 your 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
Those days are all gone now but some things remain
When I look, I find no change

'Cos those were the days of our lives
The bad things in life were so few
Those days are all gone now but
One thing's still true
When I look
And I find
I still love you

I still love you
I love you
I still love you
Love you (I still love you)
I still love you
I still love you
Oooh, yeah


Lisa: Thank you
George: Miss Lisa Stansfield. Thank you very much. There's something I'd like to say, um, I think many of us have something to say today. I think a lot of people here this evening, not necessarily people who have anything against gay people, not necessarily homophobic people, people here are probably taking some small comfort in the fact that, though Freddie died of AIDS, he was publicly bisexual. It's a very, very, dangerous comfort. I received some figures today from AMFAL, the American, ah, American side of AIDS, AIDS work really, which said that the conservative estimate for the year 2000 is forty million people on this planet will be infected with HIV. And if you think, or any of you out there really think that those are all going to be gay people or drug addicts, then you're pretty much lining up to be one of those numbers. So please, for God's sake, and for Freddie's sake, and for your own sake's, please be careful, alright. Thank you very much. This song is one of my favourites, it's called 'Somebody To Love'

Mama, just killed a man
Put a gun against his head
Pulled my trigger now he's dead
Mama, life had just begun
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


Audience: Mama
Oooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
No, I don't want to die
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?
Woh, 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


Elton: I'd like to do this song, which is one of my favourite songs from the Innuendo album. This is a great song, and, it's a great privilege for me to be here tonight to be able to pay homage to someone who I love very much. And, in doing so, I would like to thank the members of Queen for working their arses off for the last three weeks. OK

Lyrics: (the photo gallery edit includes the first three verses)
Empty spaces, what are we living for
Abandoned places, I guess we know the score
On and on, does anybody know what we are looking for

Another hero, another mindless crime
Behind the curtain, in the pantomime
Hold the line, does anybody want to take it anymore

The show must go on, yeah
The show must go on
Inside my heart is breaking
My make up may be flaking
But my smile still stays on

Whatever happens, yeah, I'll leave it all to chance
Another heartache, another failed romance
On and on, does anybody know what we are living for

I guess I'm learning (learning), I must be warmer now (learning)
I'll soon be turning (turning, turning) round the corner now
Outside the dawn is breaking
But inside in the dark I'm aching to be free

The show must go on, yeah, yeah
The show must go on
Inside my heart is breaking (ooooh)
My make up may be flaking (oooh)
But my smile still stays on

My soul is painted like the wings of butterflies
Fairytales of yesterday grow but never die
I can fly my friends

The show must go on, yeah, yeah
The show must go on
I'll face it with a grin
I'm never giving in
On with the show

The show must go on, yeah
The show must go on
I'll top the bill
I'll overkill
I've got to find the will to carry on
On with the show
On with the show
The show must go on
The show must go on
Go on, go on, go on, go on, go on, go on, go on, go on

Um, um, um
Um, bah, bah
Ba, ba, boom, bah, bay-ah


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
Um, bah, bah
Um, day-dah
That's OK


It's the terror of knowing
What this world is about
Watching the good friend screaming

Let me out
Pray tomorrow - takes me higher
Pressure on people - people on streets

Bah, bah, bah, ba, bah
OK

Chipping around - kick my brains across the floor
These are the days, it never rains but it pours
Eh bah bap
Eh day dap


People on streets
People on streets

It's the terror of knowing
What this world is about
Watching a good friend screaming

Let me out
Pray tomorrow - takes me higher
Pressure on people
People on streets


Turned away from it all like a blind man
Sat on a fence but it don't hurt

Keep coming up for air but she's so slashed and torn
Oooh, wow, yeah, yeah, wooh, ooh-ooh, oh yeah, yeah
Love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love

Insanity laughs under pressure we're cracking (love, love, love)

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
