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

Druid Queen

Druid Queen


She weaved the mistletoe
into her golden hair
Slipping on the long white dress
 
While waiting for the mist
To clear from the morning air
Her finger twisted a loose tress
 
At the circle of stones
The secret order assembled 
Impatient for the sun to break
 
Waiting in the darkness
Her body trembled
and her hands began to shake
 
At dawn’s first light 
The music broke the hush
and they began to dance
 
In and out of the stones
she was feeling the rush
It was as if she were in a trance
 
As the sun rose from the horizon
The maiden’s dance did captivate
Her body moving unfettered
 
The naysayers were denounced
Her image now the Druid queen incarnate
and into another time she entered

Kingdom

Kingdom

He dominated his kingdom
As a true ruler never should
playing dominoes with servants
whenever he could

Although his indomitable skill
Preceded him in the land
His Dominican queen
could never understand

As head of the domicile
She banned it by demand
His passion for a stupid game
So random and unplanned

Her boredom was of the play
That never tested his skills
Just a game of luck she said
You should work on the treasury bill

Pressured by the queen’s wisdom
Which was pure omniscience
He finally let the dominoes fall
Terrified of her malificence
