Whatever Happened To Saturday Night  (Hot patootie)
Words and music by Richard O'Brien

Hey pussycat
What's going down

Whatever happened to saturday night
When you dressed up sharp and you felt all right
It don't seem the same since cosmic light
Came into my life, I thought I was divine, wo wo

I used to go for a ride with a chick who'd go
Listen to the music on the radio
A saxophone was blowing on a rock'n'roll show
You climbed in the back seat, you really had a good time

Hot patootie, bless my soul, I really love that rock and roll
Hot patootie, bless my soul, I really love that rock and roll

My head was swimming from the perfume I smelled
My hands kind of fumbled with her white plastic belt
I'd taste her baby pink lipstick and that's when I'd melt
She'd whisper in my ear tonight she really was mine

Get back in front, put some hair oil on
Buddy Holly was singing his very last song (bop sho wop)
With your arms around your girl you'd try to sing along (bop sho wop)
It felt pretty good (bop sho wop) you really had a good time

Hot patootie, bless my soul (yeah yeah) I really love that rock and roll (rock and roll)
Hot patootie, bless my soul, I really love that rock and roll
Hot patootie, bless my soul (I really love) I really love that rock and roll
Hot patootie, bless my soul, I really love that rock and roll

Hey

Hot patootie, bless my soul, I really love that rock and roll
Hot patootie, bless my soul, I really love that
Hot patootie, bless my soul (I really love) I really love that rock and roll
Hot patootie, bless my soul, I really love that (yeah yeah yeah)
Hot patootie, bless my soul, I really love that rock and roll (I really love that)
Hot patootie, bless my soul, I really love that rock and roll
Hot patootie, bless my soul, I really love that rock and rock and rock and roll
Hot patootie!
 
 

What Are We Made Of
Words and music by Brian May

Brian vocals, [Sissel vocals], {duet vocals}, (harmony vocals)

[What are we made of?]
Can we know what we will be?
(What are we made of?)
[Think again]

There's a wind of change is blowing
There's a fire deep inside
There's a place we could be going
If we could only get it right
And the river keeps on flowing
And the morning lights the sky
{But if they said it would be easy}
{I guess they must have lied}

[What are we made of?]
Can we know what we will be?
[What are the chances]
I can find a better path, [a better life], {a better me?}
(What are we made of?)
[If you think you know the answer]
[Turn around, think again]

Whatever were you thinking?
Could you turn you life around?
When you know your world is sinking
Can you find the solid ground?
Is there really a road to heaven?
[We'll find it]
And a road leads down below
[Some way, somewhere]
Does anything really matter?
{If only we could know}

[What are we made of?]
Is it written in the sand?
[Where are we sailing?]
{To a strange and distant land}
{Take my hand, sail with me}

(What are we made of?)
['Cos I have to understand]

[What are we made of?]
Can we know what we will be?
[What are the chances]
{There's a place for you and me?}

(What are we made of?)
[Just for this moment, take your life into your hands]
[You'll decide what you are made of]
What it is that you can be
[Think again, my friend]
[Turn around, think again.]

 ALL TOGETHER

 All together we dance and play
 We're bright and gay - a loud Hooray!
 All together we greet the day
All:
 Colossus is no more!
 All together we celebrate
 The very hills reverberate
 To the heavens we elevate
 The Hero we adore
Ladies:
 All of a sudden the world is right
 The sun is up and shining bright
 All of a sudden the birds can sing
 And Spring is at the door...
King and Princess:
 All together in harmony
 A chorus ring, a symphony
 All together the Angels sing
 The Giant is no more!!

Maybe Baby
Words and music by Buddy Holly

Oh oh-oh oh.
Oh oh-oh oh.
Oh oh oh -
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh.

Maybe baby I'll have you.
Maybe baby you'll be true.
Maybe baby - I'll have you for me.

Its funny honey you don't care.
You never listen to my prayer.
Maybe baby - You will love me someday.

Well you are the one that makes me glad.
And you are the one that makes me sad.
When someday you want me -
Well I'll be there wait and see.

Maybe baby I'll have you.
Maybe baby you'll be true.
Maybe baby - I'll have you for me

Dum de de du de, dum de de du de
Da da da
Dum de de du de, dum de de du de
Da da da
Dum de de du de, dum de de du de
Da da da
Ah ah ah.

You are the one that makes me glad;
And you are the one that makes me sad.
When someday you want me
Well I'll be there, wait and see.

Maybe baby, I'll have you.
Maybe baby, you'll be true.
Maybe baby - I'll have you for me.

Maybe baby - I'll have you for me.
 
 

It's Only Make Believe
Words and music by Conway Twitty and Jack Nance

People see us everywhere
They think you really care
But myself I can't deceive
I know it's only make believe

My one and only prayer
Is that some day you'll care
My hopes, my dreams come true
My one and only you
No-one will ever know
How much I love you so
My only prayer will be
Some day you'll care for me
But it's only make believe

My hopes my dreams come true
My life I'd give for you
My heart, a wedding ring
My all, my everything
My heart I can't control
You rule my very soul
My only prayer will be
Some day you'll care for me
But it's only make believe

My one and only prayer
Is that some day you'll care
My hopes, my dreams come true
My one and only you
No-one will ever know
How much I love you so
My prayers my hopes my schemes
You are my every dream
But it's only make believe
 
 

God (The Dream Is Over)
Words and music by John Lennon, adapted and arranged by Brian May

Live at the Brixton Academy (Back To The Light Tour '93)

The dream is over, what can I say
The dream is over, yesterday
We were the fab ones, but now it is gone
I was the gentle one, but now I must be strong
And so dear friends we'll just have to carry on
The dream is over

The dream is over, no matter what they say
The dream is over, it has to be this way
We played in springtime, but now I play in fall
We hit the bigtime, but now we are small
And our dear friend let's hope he has it all, still
The dream is over

I don't believe in magic
I don't believe in pain
I don't believe in heroes
I don't believe in fame
I don't believe the newsprint
I don't believe we're free
I don't believe in nations
I don't believe in pride
I don't believe in pressure
I don't believe we're right
I don't believe in torture
I don't believe in fight
I don't believe in colour
I don't believe in white
I don't believe in history
I don't believe in being Queen any more
I just believe in me
Just you guys and me
And that's reality

Yes the dream is over
Dream on
 
 

Otro Lugar
Words and music by Brian May

En Otro Lugar
Bajo otro sol
Aún nos espera otra historia
Por contar...
Y allá otro Tú - despierta -
Junto a otro Yo
Porque es así como vivimos
En Otro Lugar

En un mundo extraño
Más allá del Tiempo y el Espacio
La puerta abierta está
Hacia una nueva luz
Cruzaremos el umbral quizás

En Otro Lugar
Nuestro amor podemos mostrar
Sabes, te quiero esperar -
En otro lugar

Cuando los dados se echaron
Una loca ruta marcaron que seguimos
hasta el final
Pero yo sé que en otro lugar
Será otro caminar

Vivimos así
Pero no acaba ahí
Sólo vivimos en los sueños
En Otro Lugar

Tu me puedes creer, ahí estaré
En Otro Lugar
 
 

My Boy
Words and music by Brian May

Strange how soon the party's over
I should know by now
My hand no longer guides your footsteps
Now you guide your own
And all that's left is the sound of your voice
And your face as you were on the screen
Hush, don't you cry, there'll be no pain
The bad wolf has gone
He'll have no part of our game
All too soon the dream world's fading
Says farewell
Since my boy became a man
(Don't make it too soon)
My small boy
