A Night At the Opera Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level Up The Irons       Last modified by level Up The Irons
1. Death on Two Legs (Dedicated to...) (3:43)
You suck my blood like a leech
You break the law and you breach
You Screw my brain till it hurts
You've taken all my money - you still want more

Misguided old mule
With your pigheaded riles
With your narrow-minded cronies who are fools
Of the first division

Death on two legs
You're tearing me apart
Death on two legs
You never had a heart of your own

Kill joy bad guy
Big talking small fry
You're just an old barrow-boy
Have you found a new toy to replace me
Can you face me
But now you can kiss my ass goodbye

Feel good are you satisfied
Do you feel like suicide (I think you should)
Is your conscience all right
Does it plague you at night
Do you feel good
Feel good

Talk like a big business tycoon
But you're just a hot-air balloon
So now one gives you a damn
You're just an overgrown school-boy
Let me tan your hide

A dog with disease
King of the sleaze
Put your money where your mind is Mr. Know all
Was the fin on your back part of the deal... (shark!)

Death on two legs
You're tearing me apart
Death on two legs
You never had a heart of your own
(you never did, right from the start)

Insane, should be put inside
You're a sewer-rat decaying in a cesspool of pride
Should be made unemployed
Then make yourself null-and-oid
Make me feel good
I feel good
2. Lazing on A Sunday Afternoon (1:08)
I go out to work on a Monday morning
Tuesday I go off to honeymoon
I'll be back again before it's time for Sunny-down,
I'll be lazing on a Sunday afternoon
Bicycling on every Wednesday evening
Thursday I go waltzing to the Zoo
I come from London town, I'm just an ordinary guy,
Fridays I go painting in the Louvre
I'm bound to be proposing on a Saturday night (There he goes again)
I'll be lazing on a Sunday
lazing on a Sunday
lazing on a Sunday Afternoon.
3. I'm In Love With My Car (3:05)
The machine of a dream, such a clean machine,
With the pistons a pumpin', and the hubcaps all gleam.
When I'm holding your wheel,
All I hear is your gear,
When my hand's on your grease gun,
Oh it's like a disease son,
I'm in love with my car, gotta feel for my automobile,
Get a grip on my boy racer rollbar,
Such a thrill when your radials squeal.

Told my girl I just had to forget her,
Rather buy me a new cartburettor,
So she made tracks sayin' ths is the end now,
Cars don't talk back they're just four wheeled friends now,

When I'm holding your wheel,
All I hear is your gear,
When I'm cruisin' in overdrive,
Don't have to listen to no run of the mill talk jive

I'm in love with my car, gotta feel for my automobile,
I'm in love with my car, string back gloves in my automolove!
4. You're My Best Friend (2:50)
Ooh you make me live
Whatever this world can give to me
It's you you're all I see
Ooo you make me live now honey
Ooo you make me live

Ooh you're the best friend that I ever had
I've been with you such a long time
You're my sunshine and I want you to know
That my feelings are true
I really love you
Oh you're my best friend

Ooo you make me live
Ooh I've been wandering round
But I still come back to you
In rain or shine
You've stood by me girl
I'm happy at home
You're my best friend

Ooo you make me live
Whenever this world is cruel to me
I got you to help me forgive
Ooo you make me live now honey
Ooo you make me live

You're the first one
When things turn out bad
You know I'll never be lonely
You're my only one
And I love the things
I really love the things that you do
You're my best friend

Ooo you make me live
I'm happy at home
You're my best friend
Oh you're my best friend
Ooo you make me live
You you're my best friend
5. '39 (3:25)
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
The sweetest sight ever seen.

And the night followed day
And the story tellers say
That the score brave souls inside
For many a lonely day sailed across the milky seas
Ne'er looked back, never feared, never cried.

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.

In the year of '39 came a ship in from the blue
The volunteers came home that day
And they bring good news of a world so newly born
Though their hearts so heavily weigh
For the earth is old and grey, to a new home we'll away
But my love this cannot be
For so many years have gone though I'm older but a year
Your mother's eyes in your eyes cry to me.

Don't you hear my call though you're many years away
Don't you hear me calling you
All the letters in the sand cannot heal me like your hand

For my life
Still ahead
Pity Me.
6. Sweet Lady (4:01)
You call me up and treat me like a dog
You call me up and tear me up inside
You've got me on a lead
You bring me down
You shout around
You don't believe that I'm alone.

Sweet Lady
Sweet Lady
Sweet Lady...Stay sweet.

You say
You call me up and feed me all the lines
You call me sweet lime I'm some kind of cheese
Waiting on the shelf
You eat me up
You hold me down
I'm just a fool to make you a home

And you say
Sweet lady
Sweet lady
Sweet lady...Stay sweet.
My Sweet lady
Though it seems like we wait forever
Stay sweet baby
Believe and we've got everything we need.
7. Seaside Rendezvous (2:13)
Seaside - whenever you stroll along with me I'm merely contemplating what
you feel inside meanwhile I ask you to be my Clementine -
You say you'd have to tell your daddy if you can - I love you madly -
Let me imagination run away with you gladly -
A brand new angle - highly commendable - Seaside Rendezvous -

I feel so romantic - can we do it again
Can we do it again sometime,
Fantastic, c'est la vie mesdames et messieurs
And at the peak of the season, the
Mediterranean -, this time of year, it's so fashionable,
I feel like dancing - in the tain,
All I need is a volunteer
Dancing - what a damn jolly good idea
It's such a jollification - as a matter of fact, so tres charmant my dear

Underneath the moonlight - together we'll sail across the sea
Reminiscing every night
Meantime - I ask you to be my valentine
You say you do if you did but you daren't I'll be your Valentino
We'll ride upon an omnibus and then the casino
Get a new facial - so sensational
Seaside Rendezvous - so adorable,
Seaside Rendezvous
Seaside Rendezvous
Give me the KISS
8. The Prophet's Song (8:17)
Oh oh people of the earth
Listen to the warning the seer he said
Beware the storm that gathers here
Listen to the wise man

I dreamed I saw on a moonlit stair
Spreading his hand to the multitude there
A man who cried for a love gone stale
And ice cold hearts of charity bare
I watched as fear took the old man's gaze
Hopes of the young in troubled graves
'I see no day' I heard him say
So grey is the face of every mortal

Oh oh people of the earth!
'Listen to the warning' the prophet he said
For soon the cold of night will fall
Summoned by your own hand

Ah ah children of the land
Quicken to the new life take my hand
Fly and find the new green bough
Return like the white dove

He told of death as a bone white haze
Taking the lost and the unloved babe
Late too late all the wretches run
These kings of beasts now counting their days
From mother's love is the son estranged
Married his own his precious gain
The earth will shake in two will break
And death all round will be your dow'ry

Oh oh people of the earth
Listen to the warning the seer he said
For those who hear and mark my words
Listen to the good plan

Oh oh - and two by two my human zoo
They'll be
running for to come
Running for to come
out of the rain

Flee for your live,
Who heed me not, let all your treasures make you
Fear for your life
Deceive you not the fires of hell will take you
Should death await you

Ah people can you hear me?
And now I know and now I know
And now I know and now I know
That you can hear me
And now I know and now I know
And now I know
Now I know
Now I know
Now I know
Now I know
Now I know
Now I know
The earth will shake in two will break
Death all around around around around
Around around around around
Now I know
Now I know
Now I know
Now I know
Now I know
Now I know
Now I know
Now I know
Now I know
Now I know
Now I know
Wo wo wo wo wo wo wo wo wo
Listen to the wise listen to the wise listen to the wise
Listen to the wise listen to the wise man
La la
La la la la la la
La la la la la la
La la la la la la
La la la la la la
La la la la la la
La la la la la la
La la
La la
La la
Come here I hear you
Come here I hear you
Come here I hear you
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
Listen to the man listen to the man
listen to the man listen to the mad man

God gave you grace to purge this place
And peace all around may be your fortune

Oh oh children of the land
Love is still the answer take my hand
The vision fades a voice I hear
"Listen to the madman!"

But still I fear and still I dare not
Laugh at the Madman
9. Love of My Life (3:38)
Love of my life you've hurt me
You've broken my heart and now you leave me
Love of my life can't you see
Bring it back bring it back
Don't take it away from me
Because you don't know
What it means to me

Love of my life don't leave me
You've taken my love you now desert me
Love of my life can't you see
Bring it back bring it back
Don't take it away from me
Because you don't know
What it means to me

You will remember
When this is blown over
And everything's all by the way
When I grow older
I will be there at your side to remind you
How I still love you I still love you

Back hurry back
Please bring it back home to me
Because you don't know
What it means to me
Love of my life
Love of my life
Yeah
10. Good Company (3:26)
Take good care of what you've got
My father said to me
As he puffed his pipe and baby B
He dandled on his knee
Don't fool with fools who'll turn away
Keep all good company oohoo oohoo
Take care of those you call your own and keep good company

Soon I grew and happy too
My very good friends and me
We'd play all day with Sally J
The girl from number four
And very soon I begged her
Won't you keep me company?
Oohoo oohoo oohoo oohoo
Come marry me for evermore
We'll be good company

Now marriage is an institution sure
My wife and I our needs and nothing more
All my friends by a year by and by disappeared
But we're safe enough behind our door

I flourished in my humble trade my reputation grew
The work devoured my waking hours but when my time was through
Reward of all my efforts
My own Limited Company
I hardly noticed Sally as we parted company
All through the years in the end it appears
There was never really anyone but me
Now I'm old I puff my pipe but no one's there to see
I ponder on the lesson of my life's insanity
Take care of those you call your own
And keep good company
11. Bohemian Rhapsody (5:55)
Is this the real life?
Is this just fantasy?
Caught in a landslide
No escape from reality
Open your eyes
Look up to the skies and see

I'm just a poor boy
I need no sympathy
Because I'm easy come, easy go
Little high, little low.
Any way the wind blows
Doesn't really matter to me, to me

Mama, I just killed a man
Put a gun against his head
Pulled my trigger, now he's dead
Mama, life had just begun
But now I've gone and thrown it all away

Mama oh, 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

Mama oh I don't want to die
I sometimes wish
I'd never been born at all

I see a little silhouetto of a man
Scaramouche, scaramouche
Will you do the Fandango
Thunderbolt and lightning
Very very frightening me

Galileo, Galileo, Galileo, Galileo
Galileo figaro Magnifico

But I'm just a poor boy
And 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 - Will not let you go
Let me go - No, no, no, no, no, no, no

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

Oh baby, can't do this to me baby
Just gotta get out
Just gotta get right outta here

Nothing really matters
Anyone can see
Nothing really matters
Nothing really matters to me

Any way the wind blows
