Nazis 1994
Words and music by Roger Taylor

They're saying now it never happened
They're saying now it never happened
They're saying now it never happened
They're saying now it never happened

We gotta stop these stinking nazis

And they say that it didn't happen
What the nazis did to the jews
If they think they've a second coming
Then we got different views

We gotta stop these stinking nazis

They say now it didn't happen
They say now it didn't happen
They say now it didn't happen
They say now it didn't happen

We gotta stop these stinking nazis

What the world needs is more nazis
Like it needs a hole in the head
Your future is not safe at all
'Til this disease is dead

Ee gotta stop these stinking nazis

They're saying now it never happened
They're saying now it never happened
They're saying now it never happened
They're saying now it never happened

Ee gotta stop these stinking nazis

Yeah!
 
 

Happiness
Words and music by Roger Taylor

There's just one thing
That we all crave
From the cradle
To the grave
A state of grace
Or state of mind
A point in space
Or point in time
In time of peace
In times of war
The self same goal
That we yearn for
Some have it all
But still have less
What we all need is happiness

Happiness is what you need
Yeah happiness is all around
It's not easy to define it
No it can't easily be found
It can't easily be found
You know that it's true
Cos' happiness
Just can't be bought
Such purity more precious still than gold
And happiness
Can't just be taught
When you're young or if you're old
No matter how - how hard you try
In your own life, and through your years
With every up - must come a down
Enjoy the laughter and the tears
Of happiness
 
 

Revelation
Words and music by Roger Taylor

I went to the ukraine
They don't have much to eat
No sugar on the table
But the people stay sweet

I've been to the third world
They've got nothing but hope
Through the starving and dying
Sometimes somehow they cope

It was a revelation - a revelation -
A revelation to me

I've been to the u.s.
Promised land of the free
With the workless and homeless
Begging on every street

It was a revelation - a revelation -
A revelation to me

Revelation, it was a revelation

And right here in europe
Far as can be seen
Butter mountains and wine lakes
That much food it's obscene

Now you can label me stupid
Or naive with this song
But when children are starving
I know what's right and what's wrong

It was a revelation - a revelation -
A revelation to me
 
 

Touch The Sky
Words and music by Roger Taylor

And when you smile - honey it's a cinch
I'd crawl for miles - it's worth every inch
I'd touch the sky honey - for you ooh ooh
The way you turn your head
And the way you walk
I know it's a cliche - honey
The way you talk
And when you smile
You set the world alight
When you throw your magic switch
You make me feel alright

yeah when you smile - it's a cinch
paint won't dry - comes to the clinch
politicians don't lie - honey it's you ooh ooh

The way you fix your hair
Even - when you boil your eggs
You got a certain something honey
Goes straight to my legs
And when you laugh - the whole world grins
You get right through to my soul with just the little things

And when you smile - honey I feel
Mountain high - honey you make
The bad guys die - it's you ooh ooh
It's the little things - you do

Yeah when you smile
Honey - you make
Brave men cry - honey
You are
Something wild -honey -
It's you ooh ooh
Yeah when you smile
I'd crawl for miles
We'll touch the sky honey - it's you ooh ooh

It's the little things
The little things
You do
 
 

Foreign Sand
Words by Roger Taylor, Music by Yoshiki

Here we go - ain't it grand
Here we stand on foreign sand
We're not alone

Why do fear what we don't understand
Can we reach out our hands to try just say hello
Try to plant a seed - fulfil the need - to make it grow - just say hello
And when you're far from home try to learn from all you see
Your eyes will tell you everything you need

Why do we dread what we don't really know
Come not as concubine - come not as foe
Come with intentions clearly shown
Try to plant a seed - fulfil the need - to make it grow - just say hello
And though you're far from home try to learn from all you see
Your mind will tell you everything you need - everything you need

Here we go - ain't it grand here we stand on foreign sand
And we're not alone
Red, yellow, black and white
Every man stand in the light - stand not alone

It's not a lie - it's not a sham we play for keeps - it's not a scam
No bigotry - we're hand in hand - it ain't a cinch - we make a stand
We learn to live on foreign sand - just say hello

Why do we despise when we can't even speak
We keep on spreading lies
As far as we know it's the only way to be
Try to plant a seed - fulfil the need - to make it grow
Just say hello
And though you're far from home try to learn what you could be
Your heart will tell you everything you need
Even though you stand here you stand on foreign sand
Ain't it grand here we stand - on foreign sand
Together we stand - here we stand
On foreign sand
 
 

Freedom Train
Words and music by Roger Taylor

It's been a long time comin' -
Now it's time to dance
By the golden thread of circumstance
You're destiny come dressed as chance
We've been a long time comin'
To this romance

Now I'm an honest man
But the time has come
And I'm a peaceful man
The peace before the storm
I think I hear my train
I think I hear my freedom train
I think I hear my freedom train
I think I hear my freedom train
I think I hear my freedom train

Now the world is changin' -
Faster than we know
In these troubled lands
Where hate dies slow
I think a train of change
Is comin' down the track
Comin' right this way
It ain't turning back

Now I'm an honest man
With a message of hope
And I'm a peaceful man
On a slippery slope
I think I hear my train
I think I hear my freedom train
I think I hear my freedom train
I think I hear my freedom train
I think I hear my freedom train
Comin' down the track
Comin' down the track
 
 

'You Had To Be There'
Words and music by Roger Taylor

The sweetest moments
That I ever had
The most magic memories
That I recall

(When the man came out
And complained in the hall)
When I met you
When I met you
'You had to be there'

The darkest hour
That I ever lived
And the longest fall
That I ever fell

And the sun went in
And the night was hell
When you left me
When you left me
'You had to be there'

The sweetest thoughts
That I entertain
Are of happy days
That might come again

I don't know your face
I don't know your name
'Til we meet again.....
Hope we meet again
'You have to be there'
 
 

The Key
Words and music by Roger Taylor

There once was a king of paris
There once was an emperor of brazil
There was maybe a loch ness monster
There once was a buffalo bill
Now you can search the whole wide planet
Scratching in the mud and worms
But an honest politician
Is just a contradiction in terms

And if I had the keys to the kingdom
I'd hand them straight to you
In another time another place
Another life another waste
Sometimes the last thing you wanna know is the truth

With your bishops priests and mullahs
And all the mumbo jumbo clans
When you're not accepting women
How can you love your fellow man?
Well you can search the whole wide planet
Down to viruses and germs
A 'sensible' religion
Is just a contradiction in terms

And if I had the keys to the kingdom
I'd hand them straight to you
In another time another place
Another life another waste
Another love another lie
Another small way to die
Sometimes the last thing you wanna know is the truth
 
 

Everybody Hurts Sometime
Words and music by Roger Taylor

Everybody hurts sometime - you know it
(You know it)
And everybody loves sometime - don't be afraid to show it
If you don't get a little hurt sometime
If you don't dig a little dirt sometime
You ain't living at all

Love and affection - is the sweetest thing
But when love turns sour - it ain't a sin
It's a bitter pill but it turns to bitter - sweet - within
And it's on any street - everybody hurts
Sometime

Happiness is a young mans dream
But it don't come easy - know what I mean?
Gotta chase it down the street
Right to the last scene
Run down that illusion
Try to live your dream

Cos everybody hurts sometime - you know it
And everybody loves sometime - don't be afraid to show it
And if you don't get a little hurt sometimes
If you don't dig a little dirt sometimes
You ain't living at all
 
 

Loneliness...
Words and music by Roger Taylor

Loneliness... is the greatest curse
And loneliness... is hell on earth
They say it's all in the mind
Well I'm sure that's true
But knowing isn't a cure
It don't help me or you

You don't know what's it's like
When you're all on your own
You don't know what it's like
When you're really alone
But then it's all in the mind - loneliness?

Loneliness... can be so unkind
And loneliness... hope you never find it
They say it's all in the mind
See how it falls off the tongue
They say you reap what you sow
They must be putting us on

Cos you don't know what's it's like
'Til you're all on your own
No you don't know what it's like
Until you're alone
Yeah you don't know what it's like
Wait 'til you're really alone
But then it's all in the mind... loneliness - loneliness -
Loneliness
 
 

Dear Mr. Murdoch
Words and music by Roger Taylor

Dear mr murdoch, what have you done
With your news of the screws and your soaraway sun?
Wou sharpen our hatred
You've blunted our minds
We're drowning in nipples and bingo and sex crimes

How many time must they poke and they pry
Must they twist and lie?
Just to add to the grime they even screwed up the times
Love to kick their arse goodbye oh wouldn't I!

Dear mr murdoch you play hard to see
But with your bare-arsed cheek you should be on page three
And dear mr murdoch you're really the pits
Bad news is good business, you're the king of the tits

They stain all they touch, they're real woman haters
But we're on their trail
They go straight for the lowest common denominators
How could they fail? go straight to jail - (no bail)!

Dear mr murdoch you're a powerful man
You control half our media whose values don't scan
And dear mr murdoch we're not so amused
Just line up the people whose lives they've abused

Dear mr murdoch what do you know
With your minions like vultures and carrion crow
They've sunk just as low as humans can sink
For profit they tell us how mass murderers think

And dear mr murdoch you come down from on high
You even bought up the air waves, you control all our sky

Dear mr murdoch you're a dangerous chap
With your jingoist lingo we're drowning in crap

Dear mr murdoch where are you coming from?
Getting so hard to tell if you're a yank, oz or pom

Dear mr murdoch you're really the pits
Bad news is good business, you're the king of the tits

Dear mr murdoch you do it with zing
At lowering the standards you're really the king

And dear mr murdoch what have you done?
You're not quite as nice as attila the hun
 
 

Old Friends
Words and music by Roger Taylor

When the sun got big, and the night came down
We used to share a drink - and let the demons out.
We let the good times rock, you made the bad times roll
We used to laugh a lot, you had a lot of soul

Old friends... in better times

And when the going got hard,
When times were tough
We put our backs to the wall,
You used to strut your stuff.
With a head held high and a heart so big
One fist at the sky... and shake a leg.

Old friends in better times

(Even though, even though we miss you now
Look forward don't look back
We'll get by somehow)

And so I raise my glass in a last goodbye
Sleep in peace old friend, for me you'll never die
The best thing I can say, after all this time, is
You were a real friend, of mine

Old friends... in better times
