Queen - We Are The Champions



This was released as a double A-side single with "We Will Rock You." On the album, it flows seamlessly from "We Will Rock You," which led disc jockeys to play the songs together. Even when CDs allowed the tracks to be separated, the two songs were still usually played together.


Freddie Mercury stated:

"I was thinking about football when I wrote it. I wanted a participation song, something that the fans could latch on to. Of course, I've given it more theatrical subtlety than an ordinary football chant. I suppose it could also be construed as my version of 'I Did It My Way.' We have made it, and it certainly wasn't easy. No bed of roses as the song says. And it's still not easy."


Lyrics


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. 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. 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 just go on and on, and on, and on. 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. 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.
