Who Wants to Live Forever

[Verse 1]

There’s no time for us

There’s no place for us

What is this thing that builds our dreams

Yet slips away from us?

 

[Chorus]

Who wants to live forever?

Who wants to live forever? Ooh

 

[Verse 2]

There’s no chance for us

It’s all decided for us

This world has only one sweet moment

Set aside for us

 

[Chorus]

Who wants to live forever?

Who wants to live forever? Ooh

Who dares to love forever

Oh, when love must die?

 

[Guitar Solo]

 

[Bridge]

But touch my tears with your lips

Touch my world with your fingertips

And we can have forever

And we can love forever

Forever is our today

 

[Chorus]

Who wants to live forever?

Who wants to live forever?

Forever is our today

 

Who waits forever anyway?

 

[Outro]

Crazy Little Thing Called Love

[Intro]

 

[Chorus]

This thing called love

I just can’t handle it

This thing called love

I must get ’round to it, I ain’t ready

Crazy little thing called love

 

[Verse 1]

A-this thing (This thing)

Called love (Called love)

It cries (Like a baby)

In a cradle all night

It swings (Woo, woo)

It jives (Woo, woo)

It shakes all over like a jellyfish

Woo, I kinda like it

Crazy little thing called love

 

[Bridge]

There goes my baby

She knows how to rock ‘n’ roll

She drives me crazy

She gives me hot and cold fever

Then she leaves me in a cool, cool sweat

 

[Break]

I gotta be cool, relax, get hip

And get on my tracks

Take a back seat, hitch-hike

And take a long ride

On my motorbike until I’m ready

Crazy little thing called love

 

[Guitar Solo]

 

[Verse 3]

Yeah

I gotta be cool, relax, get hip

And take a long ride on my motorbike

Until I’m ready (Ready Freddie)

Another Bites the Dust

[Intro]

Ooh, let’s go!

 

[Verse 1]

Steve walks warily down the street

With the brim pulled way down low

Ain’t no sound but the sound of his feet

Machine guns ready to go

Are you ready? Hey, are you ready for this?

Are you hanging on the edge of your seat?

Out of the doorway the bullets rip

To the sound of the beat, yeah

 

[Chorus]

Another one bites the dust

Another one bites the dust

And another one gone, and another one gone

Another one bites the dust, yeah

Hey, I’m gonna get you too

Another one bites the dust

 

[Verse 2]

How do you think I’m going to get along

Without you, when you’re gone

You took me for everything that I had

And kicked me out on my own

Are you happy, are you satisfied?

How long can you stand the heat?

Out of the doorway the bullets rip

To the sound of the beat

Look out

 

[Chorus]

Another one bites the dust

Another one bites the dust

And another one gone, and another one gone

Another one bites the dust

Hey, I’m gonna get you, too

Another one bites the dust

 

[Bridge]

Hey

Oh, take it

Bite the dust, hey

[DRUM LICK|

Another one bites the dust

Another one bites the dust, ow

Another one bites the dust, hey hey

Another one bites the dust, hey-eh-eh

Ooh

 

[Verse 3]

There are plenty of ways you can hurt a man

And bring him to the ground

You can beat him, you can cheat him, you can treat him bad

And leave him when he’s down, yeah

But I’m ready, yes I’m ready for you

I’m standing on my own two feet

Out of the doorway the bullets rip

Repeating the sound of the beat

Oh yeah

 

[Chorus]

Another one bites the dust

Another one bites the dust

And another one gone, and another one gone

Another one bites the dust, yeah

Hey, I’m gonna get you, too

Another one bites the dust

 

[Outro]

Shoot out

Ay-yeah

Alright

 

Radio Ga Ga

[Long Intro]

(Radio)

(Radio)

 

[Verse 1]

I’d sit alone and watch your light

My only friend through teenage nights

And everything I had to know

I heard it on my radio

 

[Verse 2]

You gave them all those old time stars

Through wars of worlds invaded by Mars

You made ’em laugh, you made ’em cry

You made us feel like we could fly (Radio)

So don’t become some background noise

A backdrop for the girls and boys

Who just don’t know or just don’t care

And just complain when you’re not there

 

[Pre-Chorus]

You had your time, you had the power

You’ve yet to have your finest hour

Radio (Radio)

 

[Chorus]

All we hear is radio ga ga

Radio goo goo, radio ga ga

All we hear is radio ga ga

Radio blah blah

Radio, what’s new?

Radio, someone still loves you

 

[Verse 3]

We watch the shows, we watch the stars

On videos for hours and hours

We hardly need to use our ears

How music changes through the years

Let’s hope you never leave, old friend

Like all good things, on you we depend

So stick around ’cause we might miss you

When we grow tired of all this visual

 

[Pre-Chorus]

You had your time, you had the power

You’ve yet to have your finest hour

Radio (Radio)

 

[Chorus]

All we hear is radio ga ga

Radio goo goo, radio ga ga

All we hear is radio ga ga

Radio goo goo, radio ga ga

All we hear is radio ga ga

Radio blah blah

Radio, what’s new?

Someone still loves you

I Want It All

[Intro]

I want it all (Hey, yeah), I want it all

I want it all, and I want it now

 

[Verse 1]

Adventure seeker on an empty street

Just an alley creeper light on his feet

A young fighter screaming

With no time for doubt

With the pain and anger

Can’t see a way out

 

[Pre-Chorus]

“It ain’t much I’m asking”

I heard him say

“Got to find me a future

Move out of my way”

 

[Chorus]

I want it all, I want it all

I want it all, and I want it now

I want it all, I want it all

I want it all, and I want it now

 

[Verse 2]

Listen, all you people, come gather ’round

I gotta get me a game plan

Gotta shake you to the ground

Just give me what I know is mine

People, do you hear me?

Just give me the sign

 

[Pre-Chorus]

It ain’t much I’m asking

If you want the truth

Here’s to the future

For the dreams of youth

 

[Chorus]

I want it all, I want it all

(Give it all, I want it all)

I want it all, and I want it now (Hey)

I want it all, I want it all

(Yes, I want it all, hey)

I want it all, and I want it now

 

[Bridge]

I’m a man with a one-track mind

So much to do in one lifetime

(People, do you hear me?)

Not a man for compromise

And where’s and why’s and living lies

So I’m living it all (Yes, I’m living it all)

And I’m giving it all

(And I’m giving it all, ooh, yeah)

(Yeah, yeah, yeah)

(I want it all)

 

[GUITAR SOLO]

 

[Pre-Chorus]

It ain’t much I’m asking

If you want the truth

Here’s to the future

Hear the cry of youth

(Hear the cry, hear the cry of youth)

 

[Chorus]

I want it all, I want it all

I want it all, and I want it now

I want it all, I want it all

(Hey, yeah, yeah)

I want it all, and I want it now

I’m floating around in ecstasy

So (Don’t stop me now)

(Don’t stop me)

‘Cause I’m having a good time

Having a good time

 

[Verse 1]

I’m a shooting star leaping through the sky like a tiger

Defying the laws of gravity

I’m a racing car passing by like Lady Godiva

I’m gonna go, go, go, there’s no stopping me

 

[Pre-Chorus]

I’m burning through the sky, yeah

Two hundred degrees, that’s why they call me Mister Fahrenheit

I’m traveling at the speed of light

I wanna make a supersonic woman outta you

 

[Chorus]

(Don’t stop me now)

If you wanna have a good time

Just give me a call

(Don’t stop me now)

‘Cause I’m having a good time

(Don’t stop me now)

Yes, I’m having a good time

I don’t wanna stop at all, yeah

 

[Verse 2]

I’m a rocket ship on my way to Mars on a collision course

I am a satellite, I’m out of control

I’m a sex machine ready to reload like an atom bomb

About to oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, explode

 

[Pre-Chorus]

I’m burning through the sky, yeah

Two hundred degrees, that’s why they call me Mister Fahrenheit

I’m traveling at the speed of light

I wanna make a supersonic woman of you

 

[Bridge]

(Don’t stop me, don’t stop me, don’t stop me)

We Are the Champions

[Verse 1]

I’ve paid my dues

Time after time

I’ve done my sentence

But committed no crime

And bad mistakes

I’ve made a few

I’ve had my share of sand kicked in my face

But I’ve come through

(And I need to go on and on, and on, and on)

 

[Chorus]

We are the champions, my friends

And we’ll keep on fighting ’til the end

We are the champions

We are the champions

No time for losers

‘Cause we are the champions

Of the world

 

[Verse 2]

I’ve taken my bows

And my curtain calls

You brought me fame and fortune and everything that goes with it

I thank you all

But it’s been no bed of roses

No pleasure cruise

I consider it a challenge before the whole human race

And I ain’t gonna lose

(And I need to go on and on, and on, and on)

 

[Chorus]

We are the champions, my friends

And we’ll keep on fighting ’til the end

We are the champions

We are the champions

No time for losers

‘Cause we are the champions

Of the world

 

[Outro]

We are the champions, my friends

And we’ll keep on fighting ’til the end, oh

We are the champions

We are the champions

No time for losers

‘Cause we are the champions…

Ooh, each morning I get up I die a little

Can barely stand on my feet

(Take a look at yourself in the mirror and cry)

[Chorus]

Somebody (Somebody)

Can anybody find me

Somebody to love?

[Bridge]

Bohemian Rhapsody

[Intro]

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

 

[Verse 1]

Mama, 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, ooh, 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

 

[Verse 2]

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, ooh (Any way the wind blows)

I don’t wanna die

I sometimes wish I’d never been born at all

 

[Guitar Solo]

 

[Verse 3]

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, 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

(Never, never, never, never let me go) Ah

No, no, no, no, no, no, no

(Oh, mamma mia, mamma mia) Mamma mia, let me go

Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me, for me, for me!

 

[Verse 4]

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

 

[Outro]

(Ooh)

(Ooh, yeah, ooh, yeah)

Nothing really matters, anyone can see

Nothing really matters

Nothing really matters to me

Any way the wind blows

Mamma Mia (ABBA) — July 30 Beer Choir Preview!

[Verse 1]

I‘ve been cheated by you since I don’t know when

So I made up my mind, it must come to an end

Look at me now, will I ever learn?

I don’t know how, but I suddenly lose control

There’s a fire within my soul

 

[Pre-Chorus]

Just one look and I can hear a bell ring

One more look and I forget everything, wo-o-o-oh

 

[Chorus]

Mamma mia, here I go again

My my, how can I resist you?

Mamma mia, does it show again?

My my, just how much I’ve missed you

 

Yes, I’ve been brokenhearted

Blue since the day we parted

Why, why did I ever let you go?

Mamma mia, now I really know

My my, I should not have let you go

 

[Verse 2]

I’ve been angry and sad about the things that you do

I can’t count all the times that I’ve told you we’re through

And when you go, when you slam the door

I think you know that you won’t be away too long

You know that I’m not that strong

 

[Pre-Chorus]

Just one look and I can hear a bell ring

One more look and I forget everything, wo-o-o-oh

 

[Chorus]

Mamma mia, here I go again

My my, how can I resist you?

Mamma mia, does it show again?

My my, just how much I’ve missed you

 

Yes, I’ve been brokenhearted

Blue since the day we parted

Why, why did I ever let you go?

 

[Chorus]

Mamma mia, here I go again

My my, how can I resist you?

Mamma mia, does it show again?

My my, just how much I’ve missed you

 

[Chorus]

Mamma mia, here I go again

My my, how can I resist you?

Mamma mia, does it show again?

My my, just how much I’ve missed you

 

Yes, I’ve been brokenhearted

Blue since the day we parted

Why, why did I ever let you go?

 

[Chorus]

Mamma mia, now I really know

My my, I could never let you go

Fun for all ages, all summer long!
