about

A tribute to Freddie Mercury

lyrics

Listen, John, sit by my side
Lean closer so I can see
The songs you wrote gave me more pleasure
To sing all alone than some of my own

You turned a Smile into a Queen
And barely passed your teens
Success to you was note-perfection
While the audience sings
Your kids in the wings

Stand by my side, come please sing with me
E minor fifth on the count of three
The hits and the flops
The fights and the strops
Fall into perspective when I’m wondering
Who will be there?
Tell me, dear, please tell me

So listen, John, will they sing my songs
Twenty years from now?
I try to write but on words I stumble
When there’s not much to say
It’s just day by day

Stand by my side, come please dance with me
‘Millionaire’s Waltz’ on the count of three
The hits and the flops
The fights and the strops
Fall into perspective when I’m wondering
Who will be there?
Tell me, dear, please tell me

Flying as the world keeps on spinning
The years, like lovers, pass by
Days spent in outrageous costumes
I’m sorry I made you a unicorn!

Stand by my side, come please drink with me
Stolichnaya straight on the count of three
The hits and the flops
The fights and the strops
The piss that we took
Foundations we shook
The fake plastic tits
The writing credits
Fall into perspective when I’m wondering
Who will be there?
Tell me, dear, please tell me
