This weeks Song Lyric Sunday , inspired by Helen Espinosa at This thing called life one word at a time is The Lilley of the Valley by Queen.
I have always loved Queen from the very first time I heard them sing The Seven Seas Of Rye. I have every single Album they ever made and my one huge regret is that I never saw them live!
Lily of the Valley is off of their Sheer Heart Attack Album :
Sheer Heart Attack was the third studio album by British rock band Queen, released in November 1974. It was produced by the band and Roy Thomas Baker and distributed by EMI in the United Kingdom, and Elektra in the United States.
“Lily Of The Valley”
But why does everybody tell me no
Neptune of the seas
Have you an answer for me please
And the lily of the valley doesn’t knowI lie in wait with open eyes
I carry on through stormy skies
I follow every course
My kingdom for a horse
But each time I grow old
Serpent of the Nile
Relieve me for a while
And cast me from your spell and let me goMessenger from Seven Seas has flown
To tell the King of Rhye he’s lost his throne
Wars will never cease
Is there time enough for peace
But the lily of the valley doesn’t knowWritten by Freddy Mercury
