Unreleased recording of Feel Like. This song would later evolve into Under Pressure.

Ooh yeah, ooh yeah, alright
Every day, every night
I see you walking down with that other guy
I see your face, you’re not satisfied
I know you wanna, you wanna hide

I feel like, I feel like, I feel like
Do you know it, know that, know that
Come on baby, you give me the come on
I love you baby, come on and let’s make it right

Ooh, you’re so good looking and baby
You’re so smooth
I know you have
Come on baby, wish me luck
I wanna be there, in that truck

Come on and give me that feeling
Come on give it, oh, that feeling
Oh, I want you rockin’ on, right by my side
Come on, come on, and take my side
Yeah, oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah come on and get me, get me
I wanna take you with me
But don’t you let me, let me, oh come on
Let me give you a good time
Ohh yeah, give you a good time
Like we’ve never had

Promises never be free
I’ve heard them all
Every day and night you know I’m OK
Funny things happen, I don’t know what you’re talking about
Make you, you make me
I’m gonna wish that I had
Just you, just you, I want you, I love you
It’s been so hard
Take it in to your eyes
Feel like

Give me the pieces, pieces of your heart
I love you, I love you, love you, love you, love you
And make a big start
Brand new start
Let’s make a brand new start

Ooh, let’s make a brand new start
I’m giving you that broken heart
Oh, I need you baby
Come on and baby, tell me what you feel
You can have me, we’ll make a deal
Broken pieces left on the side
Oh, come on don’t hide
I love you, ooh yeah, ooh yeah
That’s ‘cos I love you
I love you, I love you
Oh, come on and take me
‘Cos I need your
I need your loving

Freddie Mercury – New York

Posted in Lyrics, Recorded Demos, Songs and fotoclips on September 15, 2009 by kansara

Demo recorded at Musicland Studios, Munich, Germany on July 6th 1984.

One, two, three, four, one

I didn’t get no sleep last night
Had a drink and I got uptight
I fell over

When the sun comes in inside
When the tide comes in I’m alive
I’m all over
So move over

Here I come New York
New York, you’re gaining on me
New York, you’re just that one step far away
But I’m here to stay

New York, you’re (stop) gaining on me
New York, you’re just that one step far away
But I’m here to stay
You can’t catch me New York

Posted in Lyrics, Recorded Demos, Songs and fotoclips, Videos Tribute on September 15, 2009 by kansara

Demo by Freddie Mercury. Recorded at Musicland Studios, Munich, Germany on February 10th 1984.

Hey, there seem to be a lot of things going round
Feeling all that bad to be
You can take it any time you wanted to baby
You only want it for me
You can only let my lover see you around
Hey, hey, left me

Hey, you get it all in life
You can belong to me
You see I want love but

Money can’t buy happiness
No, no, money, hey, can’t buy happiness
I tell ya

You seem to be the only girl left in town
What you doin’ tonight?
But when you see that I’m alone in the hall
You own, you own, you tellin’ me
But when they tell me you want me now
I don’t, I don’t, I don’t believe it
Ha, you coming on to money
You came to steal my money

Mmmm, money, hey, can’t buy happiness
No, no, money can’t buy happiness
No, money can’t buy happiness
No, money can’t buy happiness

Keep a little more money
Can’t buy happiness
Yeah, money don’t buy
Money don’t buy
Money don’t give no happiness, no
Money don’t buy

Queen – Stealin

Posted in Lyrics, Recorded Demos, Songs and fotoclips on September 14, 2009 by kansara

Non album track recorded during the Miracle sessions. Only released on the Breakthru single (not US) and the US Scandal promo CD.

That’s the way I am
Does anybody want to know?
This is the way I lead my life, you know
Wheelin’ and dealin’ and a little bit of stealin’
You know, that’s the way I grew up
It’s the only life I know
That’s the way my mother told me
And they go

Stealin’
I gave you the key to my home
I left you alone
In charge of my heart
Hey, stealin’
You got me wheelin’ and dealin’
Played with my feelings
Right from the start

Can’t afford to pay my rent
I had to use my common sense
To get some money I owe, uh, oh
This guy said look in my head
Make some easy bread
Stealin’ is the only way that I know, oh

Stealin’ hey
Only way that I know
Yeah that I’m stealin’ baby
Stealin’
I gave you both my heart and my home
Left you alone
Now you’ll be stealin’, stealin’, stealin’
Of my heart
You’re my baby’s heart
Uh huh
Eeeeee

Baby let it bleed

You’re in charge of my heart

You are in charge of my heart
You are in charge
You are in charge
Ba, ba, ba, da, da, dap
Ba, ba, ba, da, da, dap
Ba, ba, ba, da, da, dap
Because you are in charge of my heart

I gave you the key
And turned on the bed
I gave you the key
Come on I said
What have I got
What have I got

Yes, I, I got the key out of my heart
Now get that key out of my heart
I said the key, hey, of my heart
Come on

Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha
