It Will Really Be Worth it!

A lyrical peek into the last few years of Freddie Mercury’s life stands to fetch some serious cash when it goes up for auction this summer.

A notebook once owned by the late Queen frontman has lyrics to several Queen tracks that appeared on the band’s last two albums recorded when Freddie was alive, The Miracle and Innuendo.

Hindsight being 20/20, the song that may have best captured Freddie’s reflective tone as he was battling AIDS was this amazing tune off of ‘The Miracle’ (lyrics below).

What is there left for me to do in this life
Did I achieve what I had set in my sights
Am I a happy man, or is this sinking sand
Was it all worth it, was it all worth it

Yeah, now hear my story, let me tell you about it
We bought a drum kit, I blew my own trumpet
Played the circuit, thought we were perfect

Was it all worth it, giving all my heart and soul and
Staying up all night, was it all worth it
Liv
ing breathing rock ‘n’ roll , a Godforsaken life

Put down our money without counting the cost
It didn’t matter if we won – if we lost
Yes we were vicious, yes we could kill
Yes we were hungry, yes we were brill – ha ha haa

We served a purpose, like a bloody circus
We were so dandy
, we love you madly
Was it all worth it
Living breathing rock ‘n’ roll, this Godforsaken life
Was it all worth it yeah, was it all worth it
When the hurly burly’s done

 

We went to bali, saw God and dali
So mystic, surrealistic
Was it all worth it yeah yeah, giving all my heart and soul
Staying up all night, was it all worth it
Ooh living breathing rock ‘n’ roll this never ending fight
Was it all worth it, was it all worth it
Yes it was a worthwhile experience
