Lyrics of the Day: Queen’s “Doing Alright”

Queen Circa 1973

Today, November 24th, marks the 19th anniversary of the passing of Queen’s lead vocalist, Freddie Mercury; who, seriously was like a god to me. In memory of Freddie’s passing I wanted to post the lyrics to my very favorite Queen song, “Doing Alright” off of their self titled, 1973 debut. Even though Freddie didn’t write the lyrics to this song, it having been composed by Brian May and Tim Staffell, of May and Roger Taylor’s former band, Smile, no one could have sung it any better than Fred. This song is amazing, especially the part where the band goes from a jazz breakdown into a full on, righteous metal shred. You should download it on iTunes right now if you don’t already own it. RIP Freddie!

Yesterday my life was in ruin
Now today I know what I’m doing
Got a feeling I should be doing all right
Doing all right

Where will I be this time tomorrow?
Jumped in joy or sinking in sorrow
Anyway I should be doing all right
Doing all right

Should be waiting for the sun
Looking round to find the words to say
Should be waiting for the skies to clear
There ain’t time in all the world

Should be waiting for the sun
And anyway I’ve got to hide away

Yesterday my life was in ruin
Now today God knows what I’m doing
Anyway I should be doing all right
Doing all right
