Song Lyric Sunday

This week Jim Adams has prompted us with Boogie/Rock/Rolling Stone for Song Lyric Sunday. Can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with! I have a feeling a lot of old favorites will be shared.

Here is my pick from my favorite band from the 70s – We Will Rock You by Queen. I love this song, almost as much as We Are The Champions, especially at a football game!

It was written by Queen guitarist Brian May and was recorded in 1977. This video shows Freddie Mercury as the wild and gifted entertainer that he was. RIP.





Lyrics
We Will Rock You
Queen


Buddy, you're a boy, make a big noise
Playing in the street, gonna be a big man someday
You got mud on your face, you big disgrace
Kicking your can all over the place, singin'’
 
We will, we will rock you
We will, we will rock you
 
Buddy, you're a young man, hard man
Shouting in the street, gonna take on the world someday
You got blood on your face, you big disgrace
Waving your banner all over the place
 
We will, we will rock you, sing it!
We will, we will rock you, yeah
 
Buddy, you're an old man, poor man
Pleading with your eyes, gonna get you some peace someday
You got mud on your face, big disgrace
Somebody better put you back into your place, do it!
 
We will, we will rock you, yeah, yeah, come on
We will, we will rock you, alright, louder!
We will, we will rock you, one more time
We will, we will rock you
Yeah

    Freddie Mercury could really control an audience and get them singing. Awesome pick Christine.

    A classic! Have to admit that I wasn’t a big Queen fan, but seeing Bohemian Rhapsody really changed my view. I loved it when this tune was performed at the start of this year’s Academy Awards show!
