SHEER HEART ATTACK

"Я почувствовал еще большую уверенность в нашей
группе, чем прежде. Возможно, я был единственным,
кто мог взглянуть на Queen со стороны, потому что
пришел в группу четвертым. Я понимал, что есть в
нашей музыке нечто особенное, но не был полностью
уверен... пожалуй, до альбома "Sheer Heart Attack".

Обложка "Sheer Heart Attack"

Brighton Rock

Happy little day, Jimmy went away
Met his little Jenny on a public holiday
A happy pair they made, so decorously laid
'Neath the gay illuminations all along the promenade
"It's good to know there's still a little magic the air
I'll weave my spell"
"Jenny will you stay- tarry with me pray
Nothing 'ere need come between us tell me love, what do you say"
"Oh no I must away to my Mum in disarray
If my mother should discover how I spent my holiday
It would be of small avail to talk of magic in the air
I'll say farewell"
O Rock of Ages, do not crumble love is breathing still
O Lady Moon, shine down a little people magic
if you will
Jenny pines away, writes a letter everyday
"We must ever be together, nothing can my love erase"
"Oh no I'm compromised, I must apologise
If my lady should discover how I spend my holidays..."
Killer Queen     [назад]

She keeps Moet et Chandon
In her pretty cabinant
'Let them eat cake' she says
Just like Marie Antionette
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
Anytime
Recommended at any price
Insatiable an appitite
Wanna try?
To avoid complications
She never kept the same address
In conversation
She spoke just like a baroness
Met a man from China
Went down to Geisha Minah
Then again incidently
If you're that way inclined
Perfume came naturally from Paris
For cars she couldn't care less
Fastidious and precise
Drop of a hat she's as willing as
Playful as a pussy cat
Then momentarily out of action
Temporarily out of gas
To absolutely drive you wild...
She's all out to get you
Recommended at any price
Insatiable an appetite
Wanna try?
You wanna try...
Tenement Funster

My new purple shoes, bin' amazin' the people next door
Any my new rock 'n roll 45's bin' enragin'
   the folks on the lower floor
I got a way with the girls on my block
Try my best be a real individual
And when we go down to Smokies and rock
They line up like it's some kinda ritual
Oh give me a good guitar, and you can say
that my hair's a disgrace
Or, just give me an open car, I'll make the speed
of life outta this place
I like the good things in life
But most of the best things ain't free
And this same situation, just cuts like a knife
When you're young, and you're poor, and you're crazy
But oh, Oh give me a good guitar, and you can say
   that my hair's a disgrace
Or, just give me an open car, I'll make the speed
   of life outta this place

Flick of the Wrist     [назад]

Dislocate your spine if you don't sign he says
I'll have you seeing double
Mesmerize you when he's tongue-tied
Simply with those eyes
Synchronize your minds and see
The beast within him rise
Don't look back
Don't look back
It's a rip-off
Flick of the wrist and you're dead baby
Blow him a kiss and you're mad
Flick of the wrist- he'll eat you're heart out
A dig in the ribs and then a kick in the head
He's taken an arm and taken a leg
All this time honey
Baby you've been had.
Intoxicate your brain with what I'm saying
If not you'll lie in knee-deep trouble
Prostitute yourself he says
Castrate your human pride
Sacrifice your leisure days
Let me squeeze you till you've dried
Don't look back
Don't look back
It's a rip-off
Work my fingers to the bones
I scream with pain
I still make no impression
Sedice you with his money-make machine
Cross-collateralize, (big-time money, money)
Reduce you to a muzak-fake machine
Then the last goodbye
It's a rip off
Flick of the wrist and you're dead baby
Blow him a kiss and you're mad
Flick of the wrist- he'll eat you're heart out
A dig in the ribs and then a kick in the head
He's taken an arm and taken a leg
All this time honey
Baby you've been had.

Lily of the Valley

I am forever searching high and low
But why does everybody tell me no
Neptune of the seas
Have you an answer for me please
And the lily of the valley doesn't know
I lie in wait with open eyes
I carry on through stormy skies
I follow every course
My kingdom for a horse
But each time I grow old
Serpent of the Nile
Relieve me for awhile
And cast me from your spell and let me go
Messenger from Seven Seas has flown
To tell the King of Rhye he's lost his throne
Wars will never cease
Is there time enough for peace
But the lily of the valley doesn't know
Now I'm Here     [назад]

Here I stand
Look around around around
But you won't see me
Now I'm here, Now I'm here, I'm just a...
Just a new man
Yes you made me live again
A baby I was when you took my hand
And the light of the night burned bright
And the people all stared didn't understand
But you knew my name on sight
Whatever came of you and me
America's new bride to be - don't worry baby
I'm safe and sound
Down in the dungeon just Peaches 'n' me
Don't I love her so
A thin moon me in a smoke-screen sky
Where the beams of your lovelight chase
Don't move, don't speak, don't feel no pain
With a rain running down my face
Your matches still light up the sky
And many a tear lives on in my eye
Down in the city just Hoople 'n' me
Don't I love him so
Whatever comes of you and me
I love to leave my memory with youNow I'm here
Think I'll stay around around around
We'll be down in a city justa you 'n' me
Don't I love you so
In The Lap Of The Gods

I live my life for you
Think all my thoughts with you,
Anything you ask I do, for you
and only you
I touch your lips with mine
But in the end
I leave it to the lords
Leave it in the lap of the Gods
What more can I do
Leave it in the lap of the Gods
I leave it to you
Leave it in the lap of the Gods
Leave it in the lap of the Gods
I want you to
Leave it in the lap of the Gods
Lap of the Gods
Stone Cold Crazy     [назад]

Sleeping very soundly on a Saturday morning I was dreaming,
I was Al Capone
There's a rumour going round, gotta clear outta town
I'm smelling like a dry fish bone
Here come the Law, gonna break down the door,
   gonna carry me away once more
Never, never, never get it any more
Gotta get away from this stone cold floor
Crazy
Stone cold crazy, you know
Rainy afternoon I gotta blow a typhoon and I'm
   playing on my slide trombone
Anymore, anymore, cannot take it anymore
Gotta get away from this stone cold floor
Crazy
Stone cold crazy, you know
Walking down the street, shooting people that I meet
   with my rubber tommy water gun
Here come the deputy, he's gonna come and getta me
I gotta get me up and run
They got sirens loose
I ran right outa juice
They're gonna put me in a cell, if I can't go to
   heaven, will they let me go to hell
Crazy
Stone cold crazy, you know
Dear Friends

So dear friends your love has gone
Only tears to dwell upon
I dare not say as the wind must blow
So a love is lost, a love is won
Go to sleep and dream again
Soon your hopes will rise and then
From all this gloom life can start anew
An there'll be no crying soon
Misfire     [назад]

Don't you misfire
Fill me up
With the desire
To carry on
Don't you know honey, that love's a game
It's always hit or miss, so take your aim
Got to hold on tight, shoot me out of sight
Don't you misfire...
Don't you misfire...
Your gun is loaded, and pointing my way
There's only one bullet, so don't delay
Got to time it right, fire me through the night
Come on, take a shot
Fire me higher
Don't you miss this time
Please don't misfire, misfire
Bring Back That Leroy Brown

Припев:
Bring back, bring back
Bring back that Leroy Brown - yeah
Bring back, bring back
Gotta bring that Leroy Brown - back

Bet your bottom dollar bill you're a playboy
Yeah, yeah
Daddy Cool with a ninety dollar smile
Took my money out of gratitude
And he git right outa town- well
I gotta getty up, steady up, shoot him down
Gotta hit that latitude - babe
[Припев]
Big bad Leroy Brown he got no common
sense - no, no
He got no brains but he sure gotta lot of style
Can't stand no more in this here jail
I gotta rid myself of this sentence
Gotta get out of the heat, step into the shade
Gotta get me there dead or alive - babe
Wooh, wooh, big bad Leroy, wooh wooh
Wooh, wooh, big bad Leroy - Brown - well
[Припев]
Big Mama LuLu Belle she had a nervous breakdown
(she had a nervous breakdown)
Leroy's taken her honey chile away
But she met him down at the station
Put a shot gun to his head
And unless I be mistaken
This is what she said
"Big bad, big boy, big bad Leroy Brown
I'm gonna get that cutie pie"
[Припев]
Big bad caused a mighty fine sensation
Yeah, yeah
Gone and got himself elected presedent
(We want Leroy for Presedent)
Next time, you gotta hit a biddy baddy weather
This time, like a shimmy, shammy leather
He's a big boy, bad boy, Leroy
I don't care where you get him from
Bring that big bad Leroy back
Want him back
She Makes Me (stormtrooper in stilettoes)     [назад]

I love
She makes me
She is my heart
She is my love
I know
I'm jealous of her
She makes me need
She is my love
Who knows who she'll make me
As I lie in her cocoon
And the world will surely heal my ills
I'm warn and terrified
She makes me so
I know the day I leave her
I'll love her still
She is my love
She is my love
She knows where my dreams will end
I'll follow as they grow
But the world will know how long I'll take
And if I'm very slow she makes me so

She is my love
In The Lap Of The Gods... revisited

It's so easy, but I can't do it
So risky- But I gotta chance it
It's so funny, there's nothing to laugh about
My money, that's all you want to talk about
I can see what you want me to be
But I'm no fool

No beginning, there's no ending
There's no meaning in my pretending
Believe me, life goes on and on and on
Forgive me when I ask you where do I belong
You say I can't set you free from me
But that's not true

It's in the lap of the Gods
I can see what you want me to be
But I'm no fool
It's in the lap of the Gods
Wo wo la la la wo
Wo wo la la
Wah Wah ooh
But that's not true
It's in the lap of the Gods
